Event reminder: Parys trip 23rd Sept

Hi folks,
Just a gentle reminder for you all about the Parys/Mona mine trip on the 23rd September, kindly being run by Parys Underground Group. We currently have 14 people signed up (there are currently NO spare places).

If you're one of the registered attendees, please can you check that you can still make the trip (in case you signed up months ago!), and if you can't make it any more, take yourself off the the list (click on the event page and then click the link under the list of attendees to remove yourself) to free the place for someone else.

Further details on the trip will be added in the next few days.

The meeting point is at 10am, in the public car park at the top of the mountain, beside the B5111 (Amlwch to
Rhosybol/Llanerchymedd road). Grid Ref: SH438905.
http://www.streetmap.co.uk/map.srf?x=243732&y=390515&z=120&sv=243732,390515&st=4&ar=y&m
app=map.srf&searchp=ids.srf&dn=713&ax=243732&ay=390515&lm=0

Please remember: BCA Insurance IS required. It is a requirement of the mine owner that anyone going in carries insurance, so if you're coming, please bring your green cards.

However... If you don't have such, don't worry as we'll let you become a temp PUG member which covers insurance for 17 days (come again as many times as there is a PUG member with you) during that time for a tenner. We'll even let you upgrade to full membership and therefore BCA insurance, for a year for an extra £11.

I'm doing the SRT course at Plas-y-Brenin the Sunday afterwards.

Can you show me where the rock is and leave me to it? Or are you not passing that way?

SRT is just one option. It's just a fun way of getting into/out of Quarry and/or Giraffe Stopes. I will be leading non-SRT folk down the stairways, passages and thro a couple of squeezes to get to the same places.

You could of course decide to do the non-SRT thro trip between Mona and Parys and get wet up to your chin... Devil

See you 23/09...

Clive

Clive, do I gather that there are going to be two separate trips, only one of which is the through trip from Mona to Parys? Please could you clarify the various options? IP: 82.71.4.122 Edited: 03/08/2017 16:24:55 by skimble

We (PUG) are working out the best options as the pool of leaders is not what it once was plus we've just had a nasty collapse in Mona which has effectively blocked the route to the jewel in the crown, the balance bob in Cairns Shaft. We may only have the thro trip Mona to Parys via a different route and a couple of options in Parys.

We'll be letting everyone know the options shortly...

I've had to remove myself from this event, so there is now one spare place.
