• Brooyar this weekend Oct 18 & 19
If you are in need of a lift or can offer someone a lift please contact the committee asap.
• The climbing at Brooyar has a good range of grades and route lengths range from short to 50m. The climbing is mostly on bolts so bring bolt plates and runners. a small amount of natural pro is also useful. see qurank for guides.
• Camping is at the Glastonbury campground , about a 2 and a half hr drive north of Brisbane. Go thru Gympie and take the Kilkivan turnoff. a few kms down this road is a signpost on the left to the campground. it's mostly a dirt road. It's a nice spot and family friendly (no showers)
• It looks like bookings are now required as there is no registration at the campground. I checked the web site and it looks like that's the case. If you wish to book you can do so by phoning 131304 or do it online at http://www.epa.qld.gov.au/parks_and_forests/find_a_park_or_forest/brooyar_state_forest__camping_information/#gen1
• Acting Treasurer
You will have seen that Lindy has recently resigned from the committee. Over the last 18 months or so Lindy has done a great job as Treasurer and I'd like to thank her for all her efforts.
Since we are so close to the 2008 AGM, Wayne Sutcliffe has agreed to temporarily act in this role until the AGM when all positions are thrown open - Thanks Wayne.
• Nov 9 Trip - Where to go?
The committee left an open slot in the trips calendar this year to allow for cancellations or special requests.
The suggestion is that we choose a Sunshine Coast location for this one, as all three trips north this year were rain cancelled, but we can go anywhere that sparks enough interest..
If you have a preference for a particular location let us know soon.
• Christmas Party/AGM
A reminder that this year's Christmas Party is on Saturday November 22.
As per usual there will be a very short Annual General Meeting during this. If you have something you think should be put on the agenda or a suggestion for something the club should be doing can you email that in please.
This year several current committee members are looking to resign, so I'm very keen to hear from anyone who is prepared to help the club out by serving on the committee for a year. These are all relatively simple roles and it would be great to get representation from both the current batch of new members and also the experienced long standing members of the club.
There will be more details closer to the event.
• Arapiles Trip Reports (and any others)
Remember that a decent gear prize will be awarded at the Christmas party for the best trip report. At the moment Lindy's a shoe-in. Get writing, ....., not long left now.
Also, please send in any photos you have from any BRC Trips. These can be emailed in.
Just as an aside, our photo albums now have tags for members!!! see link
• Australian Climbers Association Qld Meeting
If you are interested in access issues and building relationships with land managers/owners there is a new group meeting this Friday. Check out this link.
Australian Bouldering Nationals
posted Sep 17, 2008, 8:45 PM by Unknown user
This year the Australian Bouldering Nationals will be hosted by The Pitch Climbing Centre in Sydney over the weekend of the 18th and 19th of October. The competition is open to all climbers with a full range of Youth and Junior categories, A & B grade Opens and Masters. All categories will have a 2 hour worked session (pumpfest) as a qualifier for the finals, with at least 4 finals problems for every division. We have a large pool of gear and gift voucher prizes from our sponsors, and The Pitch are putting up cash prizes for the Open A division. For more information check out the Pitch website at www.pitch.com.au or the SCA website at www.sportclimbingaustralia.org.au and please take the time to visit our sponsors.
Maroon Trip this Weekend.
Just a reminder that this Saturday Aug 9 is the Maroon trip. It's a reasonable walk in so we'll meet at the Mt Maroon car park at 8am. It takes about an hour & three quarters to get there. Thanks to those that have already responded via email.
Last Frog Trip
The last Frog trip was pretty well attended. Remember we're always looking for Trip reports and photos so please send these in. Don't forget the best trip report for the year also wins a gear prize at the AGM. Lindy currently looks like winning, and we can't have that!
We've moved this year's AGM/Christmas Party to Nov 22.
The committee has decided to make a $300 donation to Safer Cliffs Queensland to support their current funding drive. Interested members are also encouraged to make an individual contribution. SCQ do a great job and we've all had the benefit of the work they do.
The committee has decided to change the Frog weekend due to the fact that there are no camp sites available and the hotels are fully booked due to races at Willowbank on that weekend and the next. So we're moving the Frog weekend by 2 weeks to the weekend of the 26th & 27th July.
We've also decided to reschedule the rain delayed Ngungun trip for Saturday 12 July in place of the Frog week.
Just confirming the details for Saturday night as there was a bit of confusion among those at KP on Tuesday night.
454 Brunswick St
7pm for 7.30pm
It's on the corner of Brunswick and Robertson Sts. If you are coming from Ann St, it's the 3rd set of lights on the left.
We have arranged to have the all you can banquet which is $24 per head includes entree, mains, dessert and breads etc.
Don't forget it's BYO wine and beer.
See you then
