Belfry Fireworks trip: 4th – 6th November 2016

Hi All,
The time has come to start organising the highly-anticipated Fireworks Trip to the Mendips.

We will be staying at the Belfry (caving hut owned by the Bristol Exploration Club) -same as on the last trip.
We have our usual array of Mendip caving trips planned, but there will also be opportunities to do some rarer caving trips, such as Stoke Lane Slocker, Priddy Green Sink, St Cuthberts and possibly others.

On Saturday evening we shall be joining in with activities organised by the BEC: there will be a presentation on the exploits of the BEC’s 2016 caving expedition to the Philippines and plans for 2017, followed by a large buffet of Filipino food – vegetable chow mien noodles, plain rice, crispy beef cooked in soy sauce and garlic, chicken Afritada, pudding of sticky rice cooked in condensed milk to form a flapjack – very sweet and tasty.
(the cost of this will be included in your trip fee)

Fireworks outside from 9.30pm & Disco after until late.

Throughout the night there will also be a bar selling Potholer Ale at £2.50 per pint.

The trip will cost £35.
At the moment we have 15 spaces available (until car & kit availability is confirmed), on a first-come-first-served basis.

IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO COME please pay on the RUSU Caving website ( : Look under “Products/Tickets” towards the bottom of the page.
You will need to have an account on the Student Union website (all current students have one set up by default), and you will need to be a member of Caving.
This is the only way to confirm your space on this trip.

If you are having technical difficulties, the lovely people in Student Activities (inside the students union building) will be able to help you (including taking a cash payment), but feel free to contact us and we will do our best to help too.
