Yes, nice work from the indefatigable editor. πŸ‘ It's brought on a personal reflection that not so long ago one might have featured more prominently in it than being restricted to featuring only on the back pages and in the pub! πŸ˜•πŸ˜‰πŸ˜‚

"Nutters" on the the front cover and inside. The content ratio is probably proportional to the participation. Although we probably need more pages devoted to beer

AHH thanks guys-its a pleasure to do it for you even though it drives me mad at times when things just won't go as they should! I enjoy it though and thanks to all who contribute their articles!

FMC Evening Climbing tonight!

Kendal Wall (and Preston)

Some of our members are heading up to Kendal Wall tonight for a change! There may however still be a presence at Preston Wall. Please comment below or in the WhatsApp groups as to where you are heading so folks know there will be someone there to climb with!

I will be there at some point. Not sure of time yet.

3 x Non members interested in joining will be there from about 6. Varying degrees of experience. More interested in the routes than bouldering.

I'll be there around 6pm. Also, Woody n Hal are going.

Climb on splinted finger? (Sounds like a song title, but which song and by whom?)

Good to see some familiar faces at the wall tonight! At some point we'll try to stick around long enough to make it to the pub afterwards!

Blimey. Posh and Becks have come down in the World if the best they can do nowadays is appear on dodgy advertising hoardings.

I know this is going to read like an advertising feature but it may be of interest to members ... I bought some rock shoes today at the newly opened Rock and Run footwear department in the Shoreline Business Park near Milnthorpe. It’s not a walk in shop; you have to book an appointment via the website. But they have a massive selection of stuff, I’ve never seen so many different types of rock boots in one place.

Been around for a while hasn't it?

So, awaiting with bated breath! What did you buy Mark Harding ?πŸ€”

Just bought a pair of La Sportiva shoes at Needle Sports.Then I realised they were called Finale. Might be a message there. And- what did you buy?

FMC Evening Climbing tonight!

Lancaster Wall (and Preston)

There is a free bouldering competition on at Lancaster Wall tonight from 5:30pm until 8:30pm and a few of our members will be there if anyone fancies going? You still have to pay to get in the wall however and for the pizza's that will be on offer from 7:30pm. Although it's called a Freshers comp, it is open to all.

There will also be some members at Preston Wall too, as usual. Probably around 7pm but keep an eye on the WhatsApp group for more info.

Hey - new to the club / interested in joining. Can I join the preston meet tonight?

Looks like we're leaving home at 7pm so will be there around 7:30.

Good turnout last night at Preston Wall, despite there being an alternative event on elsewhere! 8 members on the wall, and even 6 in the pub afterwards! Could have been 7 but one member couldn't find it!πŸ˜‚

I rang Tom Knowles this morning but got no answer. I'll try again later but if anyone sees him please give him a nudge about tonight.

I'll be there....

Great turn out last night at the pub meet! 10 members enjoyed a fine selection of beers!πŸΊπŸ˜‰

was great to see a good turnout last night! Nice to see everyone and enjoy some lovely beer!

Also this open from today!Our website is now live! πŸ₯³

Link in bio. Have a nosey and whilst you're at it, feel free to register if you're already a competent boulderer. This will save you time when you first visit.

If you're new to bouldering and fancy a go, we will be running inductions this weekend, just drop us a line to arrange.

Please note our postcode takes you to the back of our building, use Hill Street in your sat nav πŸ“‘

Looking forward to seeing y'all soon 🫢

Also this open from today!

Some of our members are attending this!πŸ”₯ FOR ONE DAY ONLY - FRESHERS COMP - THURSDAY OCTOBER 26THπŸ”₯

Calling all students young and old, students of life, mature or immature students and students here for a good time! We have a cracking comp on for one night only for ages 12+. Following a very similar style to our Bouldering leagues we will have 25 blocs from V0 to V8+ which will feature the LancasterWall staff's faves or greatest hits if you will. There will be the usual 4 age categories, so fear not, this isn't just for those young whipper-snappers! πŸ˜ŽπŸ§™β€β™€οΈπŸ§™β€β™‚οΈ

This comp is completely FREE to enter and run exclusively on Griptonite, so if you don't already, get that beauty downloaded. The competition will open at 5:30pm and will be blessed by the pizza gods at @aquilapizzeria at 7:30pm providing carnivore and vegan options! 🀀🀀 The comp will close at 8:30pm where we will announce the first place winners for each category.

This comp is all about having a casual fun time with a potentially new to you climbing community. We like to think we have a pretty wonderful bunch here at LW so if you've never joined us before, why not pop down and give this comp a go? 😁

See you there! πŸ”₯πŸ’ͺ

This year's fell race is next weekend the 21st and 22nd October.

All are welcome. I'll be running the weekend - there will be a curry in the evening for everyone.

However, there are quite a few snags and things to sort for the new bathrooms so I want to have a hybrid meet and have a bit of a working weekend if people can join me. It means we can sort some of the snags. As some of your are aware the builder has done a great job but had has succumbed to a severe back injury hence a bit of self help is needed to finalise things.

The race takes place on Saturday morning. Day visitors welcome too. For the race we run a handicap system which means everyone has a chance of winning πŸ†

Please let me know if you can come either for the race, doing some jobs or both. As I say, tea will be provided.

Cheers Drew
