Annual Dinner 2017
The Dinner and Dance to be held on 25th November at Stockport County football ground is now fixed and we have menus for us to choose from. There are four choices for each course. Booking can be done on-line (for members) but non-members are asked to contact the organisers for a booking form or speak to a member. The Dinner is always a great social event and a chance for partners to meet. Normally, at least 50 to 60 attend so make sure you get there. At the Dinner, we also give out awards for Caver of the Year, Mighty Miner and so on.
The 2017 Open Weekend at Wood Mine is now history. A couple of hundred visitors went round the mine and many of them had an adventurous time in the Wiggly Worm crawl. Many thanks to all the DCC members and friends who turned out to make the event such a success; the weather was kind to us with sun on the Saturday and only a very little drizzle on Sunday. Preparations will now be started for the next Open Weekend which is April 21st-2nd at Engine Vein Mine. For more information including the booking form (which is now available), you can click here. For trips down the mines at other times of the year, you can click here.
Anton has been busy and set up dates for a load of meets, at least one a month. Have a look at the list (click the link below the news).
