e-Newsletter March 2012

This week marks the official start of spring, meaning longer days and lighter evenings.  Perfect for after-work climbing and long weekend walks.

Why not make the most of the good weather and join us in Malham next month for the 2012 BMC AGM where we'll be seeing out one President and voting in a new one.  If you can’t attend the AGM in person, remember to cast your vote by proxy.  Keep an eye out for voting cards in Summit 65 which will be hitting your doormats at the end of the month.

Also coming up next month is Tremfest 2012, Heptonstall Crag Restoration day, and the start of the BMC Alpine Lecture series.  Check out our events pages for further details.

Dave Turnbull, BMC CEO
