Reading University Caving Club

CHECC 2011


CHECC 2011 – what can I say?! Every year the Council of Higher Education Caving Clubs organises an event for every student caving club in the country. It’s not uncommon for around 300-450 students to attend this event!

Expect lots of wild partying, dancing (not always fully clothed!), competitions including the Annual Beer Pong and Squeeze Machine championships, exhibitions and displays – and many other things! We might even get around to doing some caving at some point… 😀

This year, CHECC is being held at the same venue as last year – the Dalesbridge centre in Yorkshire. We anticipate a lot of demand for this trip, so please sign up for it ASAP at one of our Monday pub gatherings, or by emailing our president.


The Dalesbridge Centre, near Settle, Yorkshire


Friday 25th – Sunday 27th November. Meeting in the car park of the Athletics Pavilion at 6:00pm on the Friday – see building 43 on this Map [PDF file]. Returning very late in the evening on Sunday.

What to bring:

  • Standard trip gear
  • £40 [exact price TBC] to pay for the trip if you haven’t already, plus extra money to pay for any additional food or booze on the way there or back
  • Loads of alcohol!!
  • Your costume to go with the club’s ‘theme’ this year – precise details TBC
  • Plenty of warm clothes, thermals if you have them, and a warm sleeping bag. Yorkshire is cold!
  • A tent if you have one.
  • An expectation that just about anything might happen this weekend!

    I like to thank the Caving group that found and returned my dry bag at the weekend and as a thank you I will,as agreed, be making a donation to Ingleton Cave rescue.

    Many thanks
    Hope you had a good weekend
