THE first CNCC rigging guide appeared in as a photocopied, hand-assembled, comb-bound booklet covering the twelve caves with installed Eco-anchors at that time see Descent The price was set to cover the cost of installing one anchor and the overall sale of guides funded the complete Eco-anchor programme across the whole of the region; everything was then rewritten and combined into a single volume, which was published in as the first edition of the CNCC Rigging Guide Vol 1. This latest guidebook is printed on heavyweight gloss paper with large print; no excuses for not being able to read this in the dark, though it is unlikely to be taken caving with you as opposed to a copy of the topo for instant reference. Most of these are accompanied by a photograph of the entrance, a neat and useful addition which will aid newcomers to the area: now you know what you are looking for, as well as — where there is more than one entrance — which hole to head for. Each section covers the precise location and access procedure, defines the path needed to reach the cave, then gives a route description, a list of equipment required and any other relevant details such as weather warnings: all very valuable stuff. General advice on rope care, safety and rigging techniques completes the volume.

CNCC Rigging Guide
Since the last newsletter the very major event that has taken place was Euro Speleo , although not directly coming under the auspices of the British Caving Association BCA officials were very involved with it. A great deal of work was done by a large number of people, but one in particular who broke all records for the amount of effort put in was Damian Weare, I would like to give thanks to Damian for Euro Speleo. Also to thank him for all the work he has put in to being Secretary to BCA over the last 7 years or so. His contribution has been immense and we in the BCA Council will all miss him a great deal. Leanne took the minutes at a BCA Council meeting on the first day of her appointment, and the draft minutes are looking very good.
