Welcome To 2016

Welcome to 2016!  I hope that this will be another big year.

We’ve put together a tentative trip list with a mix of caving and other activities.  If you are interested in any of the activities please contact the organiser at least two weeks in advance to secure a spot.

Also new for this year we’ve expaned the introductory membership to a full year.  So if your a student and are interested in trying caving its only $25 to join the club for the first year.

Jenolan Trips for 2016

We’ve booked the following two dates for Jenolan in 2016:

  • 14-15 May 2016
  • 23-24 July 2016

Remember to contact the organiser a month or so in advance if you are interested.

Update to the Trip List

We’ve made some changes to the trip list: mainly moving the upcoming Timor trip back a few weeks.  Check out the changes.

2015 Trip List Posted

I’ve just posted the 2015 Trip List in the upcoming trips page.  Check it out and mark the events in your diary.  There is a bit of everything in there but mainly caving. Highlights include a few possible XC mountain bike trips and rogaines.

The Australian National Rogaine Championships are in NSW in October this year so time to get training for that.

Draft 2014 AGM Minutes

The draft minutes from the 2014 Annual General Meeting are now available.

Trip Updates

We’ve just moved some trips around so please check out the Upcoming Trips page for the latest details.

Also, as its warming up its coming around to canyoning season.  If you are interested please contact us now to let us know as these tend to be organised at the last minute.

Trip Update

Its been a while since posts but we are still here.  We’ve just updated the trips page so jump over there and have a look but in the mean time the upcoming  highlights are:

  • 6-7 September: Dry canyon or Bungonia, TBC
  • 20-21 September: Jenolan, the last for the year.

And if you are wondering, we’ve had to postpone the tower abseil as we are still working through the paperwork processes.  However, things are looking positive.  The event is not cancelled yet!

Tuglow and Colong Trips Confirmed

I’ve just been emailed from National Parks to say that the permits are on the way for Tuglow (3-4 May) and Colong (31 May – 1 June).  Colong has some conditions but if you are interested check out the details on our programme page and contact the organiser.

Also, Jenolan is still running next weekend.  There may still be some places left so contact Andrew ASAP if you are interested.

ASF Vertical Course

The ASF is running a vertical course.  If you are interested please see the details in the PDF flyer and respond directly to them.
