Reading University Caving Club


New Shirts & Snack Based Fun

Shirt4NEWS FEST! Three things:

1 We have some new shirt ideas here. Top work! May need some refinement  but I think the idea is there.

2 Ever wondered what your favourite caving club members look like when their face is superimposed with a potato based snack? Yes, us too…

3 Congratulations to Marie and Kay who have now jumped out of a plane for charity and have lived to collect the money from you all.

The Great RUCC Junkyard Sale

Junkbox_1We are thrilled to announce the Great RUCC Junkyard Sale! Yes, its spring cleaning time and we’ve taken the opportunity to use the magic of ebay to list numerous items that we think deserve new owners. The purpose of this exercise is to raise enough cash for at least half a club night out in a top Reading nitespot. You can monitor progress of the sale on this site and by looking at the online appeal crapometer.  If you have any items you would like to donate please let us know. We will also be offering a selection of pre-loved caving gear once we have looked in the darker recesses of the hut. We just haven’t plucked up the courage yet.

STOP PRESS! Seven bids on the pound coin so far. In response to a request for photos we have also prepared this little insight – a day in the life of our pound coin. We’re getting quite fond of it.

Tom Foord’s Guide to Modern Speleodance


As promised, a short (1Mb 30 second) instructional video starring Mr Tom Foord can be found here. It shows him demonstrating his soon-to-be-famous ‘jammer jammer jammer’ dance, falling over and then toppling out of a wheelchair. Top work. This is the first time I’ve worked with the medium of video, if it doesn’t work let me know.

On a separate note I managed to delete the entire photo archive today, hence is back up in streamlined and augmented form. Hence some new photos.
