Social lecture Wednesday 18th April 2018, Victoria hotel

Postby Marq » Thu Mar 22, 2018 3:29 pm

Wednesday 18th April with a 7pm for 7.30pm start. Victoria Hotel in Leeds http://victoriahotel.miltonpubs.com/

Part 1.
Will Hunt will be talking about that website that he helps with- Unknown Stones.

For those poor souls not yet acquainted with the website, it's a collection of mini-guides to previously undiscovered or un(der)recorded venues in Yorkshire. Most of the venues covered are bouldering only (grades from Font 1 to Font 7C+) but there is the odd trad route out there (Diff-E5). Hopefully the talk will put to bed the idea that many have that small or recently developed venues are, by definition, crap; some of the new problems have been described as amongst the best in Yorkshire.

Part 2.
Details being formulated and will involve blue skies and sunshine!
I'll be talking about sun sea and some rock somewhere along with some porticos.

Further details to come.

Mark

As the great tumbleweed balls blow through this thread, I'd like to reassure you all that this will not be a talk about bouldering. There may be some bouldering involvement but that is purely incidental. What I'll really be talking about is exploration, and stepping beyond the confines of a guide book into the sunlit uplands of the place which lies beyond. I should like to transport you to the high and windswept moors of Yorkshire, to places that only the grouse and the red kite and the curlew know. It is in these places that the Unknown Stones lie watchful and waiting. I'd like to introduce you to them.

I'm going to blatantly steal this for the newsfeed. I love it when other people make my job easy for me!

I've been working on the presentation. Some things to tempt you:
There is a special effects budget of no less than a FIVER.
No fewer than FOUR plug sockets will be utilised.
There will be THREE pieces of previously unseen, highly dramatic footage of me in a pit of sorrow having the piss taken out of me.
TWO. I can't think of anything for two.
ONE LMC member will receive some gentle teasing. It could be you!

Trinity Kitchen works for me. 6 or 6.30?

Steve - there might be sushi there or you could bring it along as their are picnic tables you can bring your own food to eat at.
