Fancy Dress Climb and Bank Holiday BBQ - Ty-Powdwr

Nils Elgar


The August Bank Holiday meet (Friday 23 to Monday 26 August) at Ty Powdwr is our next meet.  A climbing venue for Saturday can be debated on Friday night – but the aim is to pick somewhere appropriate for the weather and to suit a range of abilities.  If you are keen on leading / participating on a walk, please let me know and I’ll try and connect all those who have expressed an interest.

Fancy Dress Climbing: In the footsteps of our forebears, the coming weekend welcomes our Fancy Dress Climbing celebrations.  This time round we are going for a Myths & Legends theme, which covers a multitude of options.  If Nea Morrin is your chosen legend, perhaps you'll look forward to donning a set of tweed breeches and a loose white shirt.  Perhaps you can get inspired by the Greeks and grace us with your presence as the evil King Minos or heroic Odysseus?  If the Romans are more your thing, then you've got loads to go at: Zeus, Aphrodite, Athena, Hermes.... the list goes on.  The present day legends might float your boat better - Madonna, MJ, Prince, Bowie.... so many to pick from.  Do make sure you make an effort to play along – apparently it's fun!  The photos from the last two fancy dress efforts have been excellent and add a certain 'je ne sais quoi' to the Club photo archive. 

How it works: Saturday, we all get dressed up and go out climbing, then come back and have a lovely BBQ in the sunshine. Happy days. 

BBQ Plans: Saturday night - being lit at 6.30pm, food on at 7pm. 

Please bring £2 in coins to add into the kitty for: Ketchup, BBQ sauce, Relish, Mayonnaise, Butter (for bread), Charcoal, Firelighters. Any leftover money will go to Llanberis Mountain Rescue. 

Bring your own: Bread, Salad, meat/ meat-free option to put on the barbie, drinks

Can two people please bring a spare BBQ? Post on scribble to let people know you're bringing one to save everyone bringing one. 

Questions about Fancy Dress & BBQ to Emily Pitts: president@karabiner.org or, to me (Nils Elgar) about activities, nils_elgar@hotmail.com.

Thanks and see you at the weekend.
