This conference is open to all the only requirement is to have BCA insurance and that is facilitated for a weekend rate. New for this year there is a one delegate rate for those not able to manage a weekend. There is accommodation available in Twin Rooms, Bunk rooms and of course Camping

http://www.namhoconference.org.uk/2011/booking.htm

We have arranged advance ordering of Beer with a 20% discount the benefit for us knowing how much to order from the Brewer who is making this especially for the event

There are plenty of vacancies on trips particularly the winch trip and SRT alternative into the deeper parts of Snailbeach, there are also vacancies on the easier walk in trips.

http://www.namhoconference.org.uk/2011/underground.htm

Numerous surface trips are available
http://www.namhoconference.org.uk/2011/surface.htm

There is a full programme of talks in two lecture theatres featuring George Hall, Paul Sowan, Dave Linton, Mike Gill, Simon Hughes, Roy Fellows, Martin Dixon, Ian Castledine (ICLOCK) and many others

I fancy the winch trip in Snailbeach but right now the dates don't find my rotations Sad ( although that can change nearer the time Confused )

Been booked on for months, and have pre-ordered enough beer to allow me to spout even more rubbish than usual.

Chris.

So far we reckon there will be 9 or 10 of us there. Not quite as many as last year as I seem to recall thinking we could have fielded a full soccer team. Though I don't think we would have been much good. Laugh

You gave me one! I still haven't got it translated though. Sad

And anyway, all the books they are really interested in they had already bought direct from the author..... Smartass

The thing I find rather disconcerting, and a bit scary, are the prices some of my books would make these days... I have 30-odd years' accumulation of out-of-print titles, things like "Yesterdays' Golcondas" and Trounson, 1970s Dines.. those dreary-looking monochrome books about obscure mining areas in the Peaks ... many of them from library sell-offs and charity shops, plus whole box-files full of old mine plans.. a box of out-dated M&Q Regs... trade publications like the old ICI "Blasting Manual" and things like course notes and technical papers on rock-bolting patterns for tension bolts and gel bolts.

It's amazing what you accumulate in a 30-years' career of contract work.
