Sorry about the lack of hard-copy DTT last week - with luck you will get it tonight (so to speak). There was a cock-up in my distribution system. e-DTT should have gone out fine.
Also sorry that there are no trip reports this week, again. I know quite a few people have been caving, but obviously not the vociferous ones. I'll just have to go and do it myself....
The electron ladder on Balcony Pitch (part of the round trip in Draenen) broke last weekend during an operation to replace it. I believe the fixed ladder is now in place, but if you are planning a trip then be aware that there is no electron ladder present, and try to check first about the fixed ladder.
We're going to Wales this weekend! It looks as if it will be a well-attended weekend,
so do come along and do lots of caving. We should have at least one leader for DYO, for
which wetsuits are required (the cave, not the leader). If anyone has a spare wetsuit,
perhaps they could bring it along. We'll be staying at the WSG, complete with new kitchen.
Meet at the Bevington Road hut at 6pm on Friday Please do try and tell me if you're coming
or not, partly because it makes my life easier and partly because it's a pain to end up
with too much/too little food. Moan over. Let's go caving!

The expedition dinner was on Saturday, as most of you will know. It went well, with
lots of drunken singing, bullshitting about next year's expedition, and a large amount of
cauliflower. There was no apparent dress code, but the "best dressed" award goes
to Fleur, who sported a skirt made from a tractor tyre inner (and plenty of gaffer tape).
