The club kites can and will pick you up and spit you and/or tiny Irish men into trees.

Due to incompetent idiots (include me in that if you really want to) this is now more likely to be after splosh. TL;DR version is the hotel dicked me over. Updates when they happen....

Social Events / Annual Dinner 2015-16 - T'Up T'North T'Innit
« on: January 24, 2016, 07:15:46 PM »
It's Annual din dins time!


The plan:

Leave G-Town Friday night (time dependant on what bus you're on)

!CAMP! at Hardhurst Farm, get pissed in the pub after setting up tents

!CLIMB! Somewhere in the peaks. I hear it's good for that kind of thing....

!DRESS UP AND DINE! at Premier inn in Sheff city centre. unfortunately the place has no music license (boo) so after drinking there....

!RAVE! Somewhere. Currently the plan is go next door to what I think is Sheffield's answer to schism. Top notch.


BUS: 91
CAR: 70

Menu will be posted when they send it to me, a google form will magically appear here regarding this and who want to share a room with shortly... when this happens I'll start asking for deposits as well.

Talking to Clifton & Others and using common sense, the quicker I can find & organise a venue then the cheaper it could potentially work out. The club may need to delve into own funds to pay a deposit but that's something we can deal with when it comes.

SO destinations:


ADVANTAGES: Its day trip-able. There's at least two hotels (this years even asked me and Clifton both pre and post dinner to come back next year, so we've got that going for us). The climbing has both sport and Trad.
DISADVANTAGES: It'll be the third time in a row we go to Swanage... (But we go to cornwall every splosh and font every er, font. a new tradition maybe? who knows)


ADVANTAGES: Again, Day trip-able. Decent climbing.
DISADVANTAGES - apparently hotels a muchos expensive/ scarce. There's no Trad (A subjective disadvantage depending on your outlook on life)


Some pub suggested ideas:
-Avon gorge: Rave up in Briz post din din shennanigans if that's what you're into. Would probably look into hosting the actual dinner at somewhere like a travel lodge/prem inn with a function room ('*Groan* a shitty travel lodge?' I hear you cry? yup. Its a chain, but at least its reliable, and maybe cheaper!)
-Cheddar: Don't know much about this. But there's potential.
-The classic 'Lets do  craggy and the premier inn' joke - on a serious note, by doing this money could be saved in transport & accommodation faff (mainly on the student side) and more money could be spent on the food/venue/DJ. A lot of people also have hangovers that prevent/put them off climbing the second day anyway, so that usually becomes a write off. *Maybe* worth considering?
-INSERT SUGGESTION HERE: Sure why not. I'll look into it.



Not *really* day trip material to some, but the climbing is bomber. Likely to be moved off this list if there's significant protest.


No. Just No. Too Far, Likely Shit Weather. No.


Fuck driving that far. We have Splosh for that. No.


Unless anyone has really strong reasons for going to devon, I'm probably not going to consider it


State your destination of hate and why. Convince me to keep our drunk asses away.

Post your thoughts below. All welcome, I'll add/move/remove to the list whilst we discuss, we have a while....

Also, after talking to tor in the pub yesterday, you put as much or as little effort into this as possible, but it would great to see anyone there :)

So the uni for the ast 2 years has tried to push clubs getting in touch with its graduates in order to have a competitive/friendly get together with them once a year. Whilst we really don't care if you're a student/graduate/randomer (pre/ old/ lingering fart?), this year I thought I'd get us involved.

Whilst there's no solid plan yet, the date is set in stone as the 16th of May (a Saturday!) and is likely to be a nice happy boulder comp (maybe lead if we can sort it with SSP) with potential for a pub crawl afterwards.

It shouldn't be too difficult to get students to this as we all live in Guildford anyway, so how many old farts would be up for this?

The payment details is currently password protected, so unless someone gives you it, you can't get at them (for the reason you mentioned) I don't know how you'd go about making it a members only view thing. Keeping it in the forum might be better, but this makes it more visible (yes I know its not exactly difficult to find, but I'm sure you'll be the first to agree in that people can be a bit special sometimes) 

in terms of the photo album, that could be pretty cool, a club flikr/photobucket/something similar would be good. Alternatively pikey peoples facebook pictures and whack them in a post.

My thinking of how this would work is similar to the website now, where people can only post on the forum, not on the main website.

So I've been dicking around with this during my spare time in my lunchbreaks/waiting for analysis runs at work after getting a login off Alfie. Partially just to see how easy it would be to maintain, and to see how it'd work if we did migrate. In short, I like it. Main bits that I've done are
  • Adding more to the about us section, putting in the history stuff Nash found out (coz its interesting), payment details
  • Adding an emergency contact form that works, and would send an email to the club secretary making their life easy
  • some gear colours moved over
  • Generally adding content for funsies.
Obviously its still in a rough and ready format (text isn't always the same font and colour, image sizing, oh the humanity... :( ) but how for/against are people about this?

Right, Time to revive this a bit! I've recently started playing squash with some work guys, I'm by no means good, but anyone fancy a game if I book a court?

 I get the whole 'bouldering and high ball is soloing' thing and I agree, the difference is you'd usually have spotters and a matt in that case.

After reading all the above I get there should be no blanket ban because its subjective, but I'm still with what novelty said.

I also want a black hat.

And I hope dave gets eaten in the night by rabid badgers.

They're all my slaves as I am the lord of darkness.

I also stationed a platoon outside your house waiting in case you didnt order any...
