Hi Derek, I gave up climbing after going travelling in about 1999 but started again four or five years ago. I'm married and have a baby boy! I see Al all the time, he's still climbing too, he lives in Diggle and has 2 kids. I also see foggy at his shop above BUK in Blackburn. Will come to a meet sometime soon, maybe Al too...

Hi Derek,

It's Andy, Will's friend.

Will's finally allowed me access to the site.

Not done much recently, went to Denham last week but rain stopped play. Went to the Roaches a few weeks back with Will and fell totally in love with the place. Will was tallking about organising a weekend in the Don Whillans hut next May.

Won't be at the next meeting because I'm away, but will be back just in time for the weekend in the Lakes.

See you then!

Derek, Yes I was just acting the goat. I am still up for the 30th anniversary do. Let me know how much the cheque should be for and who I should send it to. Regards, Simon.

Hi Derek,
No, I don't think a repeat of next Saturday will ever be possible! Not sure about Braemar, will have some exams just after that so might need to put the nose bag on and eat some serious work.

Great to see everyone at the weekend,
