***THIS WEEK IN THE CLUB***
Thanks to everyone for filling in for me last week whilst I was away! Lots of news this week, so make sure you read it all!
SAVE THE DATE: our AGM will be held on Tuesday 9th April in LASS A4 at 7pm. We will be voting in our new committee and raising any club business such as changes to constitution. Please please come along, we need as many people as possible to weigh in and vote, plus there will be snacks and pizza, so it's a free dinner ;) If you are thinking about running for a committee position but are not sure about something, please feel free to drop us a message! There is no minimum experience required and every role can be shaped to suit your personal skills or plans, so take your chance to shape the next year of the club. https://www.facebook.com/events/336396120554719/
Tonight's sessions at DRSV:
Lead Climbing Basics (1/3) 18:30-20:30
We are still running top rope sessions on a REQUEST ONLY basis so if you'd like to take part in one make sure you message Danny Seeley so we can get one organised in the near future.
Tomorrow night (Tuesday) we have a pub quiz social at Sir John Borlase Warren. This will be our last social of the term so come along to enjoy hanging out in a less chalky environment! https://www.facebook.com/events/296713431023302/
Wednesday sessions at Depot will be running as normal:
15:00-17:00 Improvers with James Anderson
17:00-19:00 Advanced with Henry Todman
Keep an eye out for further posts from them or drop them a message if you have any questions.
This weekend is ANNUAL DINNER! If you've signed up to this trip keep an eye on the group for details or message Tiffany Tsang with any questions! We will be having 2 days of climbing, plus a formal dinner, a little slideshow from our incredible alumni who have been route setting out in La Cote d'Ivoire this winter, and a speech from the legendary sport climber Steve McClure! Looking forward to seeing you all there, and getting dressed up for a lovely evening with our alumni! https://www.facebook.com/groups/2132316060183514/
Next Wednesday (3rd April) we will be having an "Inter-Uni Bouldering Comp" at Nottingham Clibming Centre with Trent. This will be similar in style to the Varsity comp at Depot but also usually includes some silly competitions such as speed climbing, pull up contests, and very creative route setting (for example last year we had a handstand start and a Tarzan swing!). Always a fantastic event, and will include a scorecard raffle and a lot of free pizza! Keep an eye out for a post with the Facebook event and further details...
Next Frdiay (5th April) we will be doing a swap social with Yoga! Come along for a bit of stretchy relaxation and to meet some lovely new people!
Next term Mike (climbing wall manager) will be running some engage outdoor climbing sessions! These are open to anyone who wants to give outdoor climbing a go. They cost £10 and can be booked from any reception. There are 6 spaces on each day, running 15th and 22nd May, and 5th, 12th and 19th June. An excellent opportunity to get some grit climbing in and try something new!!
Enjoy your week and happy climbing!!
