John and Sandra you'd be most welcome. There should be a good turnout with the regulars from the north west and others from further a field. Nick

thanks Nic, the caves are on the way back to Trefor around Porth Y Nant, the narrow one is just big enough to squeeze a SR4 in

This is where anyone can make a donation if and when they would like to

Thanks for asking.

Chris

Must have been near there several times. It must be close to 'Bird Rock' which is also an amazing sight.

there are a few caves along that stretch of coastline Nic, just have to be lucky to get a calm enough day to get in close enough to explore the caves there's some interesting rock formations close to Trefor, but plenty of semi-submerged rocks as well

Time to Sign Up - 6 weeks to Go

Well planning to dust the cobwebs off the rib next weekend in anticipation that there will be some longer & warmer days to come in April

With only six weeks to go I thought I would try and consolidate a list of participants for the Bardsey run. Here is a link to a spreadsheet that anyone should be able to edit.

https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets...it?usp=sharing

I would be grateful if you could fill in as much detail as possible including whether you wish to join us for a bite to eat in the evening. Please accept my apologies if I have missed someone or not got the detail right.

Also the Just Giving webpage is now live at

https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/RoundBardsey

Dan & Emma have kick started the fund raising and very generously donated 100. Thanks a lot Dan & Emma.

I will also commit to donating a minimum of 10 for every rib that joins the rally. Really looking forward to seeing you all again

Nick

Just a thought for this trip, is the RIB.net group MMSI still working? 023200057

Might make group communication better?
