Last month we held another of our regular "provisionals and beginners"
weekends, again ably organised by Lizzy.
The aim is to offer a weekend tailored to showing people the joys of the caving
world above and below ground. Caving trips were arranged for all abilities and
a fine meal shared on Saturday night.
Many thanks are due to Lizzy for organsing,
Lel and Iain for feeding everyone, and to all the Leaders.

"For so many years I have been trying to find some outdoors sports that
fulfill my boredom and give me something to look forward to do in my
free time aswell as meet people with the same energy and interest as me, I started
searching the net and in 2007 I found the website about
the caves in wales the OFD system and I was so exciting about going there and
see all by myself, I have to wait long but finally the
provisional caving weekend this year in October gave me the opportunity to go
there and taste what it is the caving experience in
real caves with real cavers. It was awesome and it fulfilled all my expectations,
I have meet wonderfull and very supportive people and I
will definitely join the club in the near future."

"Just wanted to say thank you for organising the provisional weekend,
I had a fantastic day caving on the saturday and was made to feel very
welcome at the club, I am only sorry I couldn't make today's caving, I would
also appreciate it if you could pass on my thanks to the guide leaders
who were brilliant Allan, Fred and Helen, apologies but I did not get their surnames
although I know that Fred is the club president.
I had an amazing weekend and met some great people, I hope I get the opportunity
to come again. Big Thanks. Craig Farr"
