October Update

posted Oct 15, 2008, 3:22 AM by Brisbane Rockclimbing Club   [ updated Oct 22, 2008, 3:25 PM ]

  • Brooyar this weekend Oct 18 & 19

    If you are in need of a lift or can offer someone a lift please contact the committee asap.

    The climbing at Brooyar has a good range of grades and route lengths range from short to 50m. The climbing is mostly on bolts so bring bolt plates and runners. a small amount of natural pro is also useful. see qurank for guides.  
    Camping is at the Glastonbury campground , about a 2 and a half hr drive north of Brisbane. Go thru Gympie and take the Kilkivan turnoff. a few kms down this road is a signpost on the left to the campground. it's mostly a dirt road. It's a nice spot and family friendly (no showers)

    It looks like bookings are now required as there is no registration at the campground. I checked the web site and it looks like that's the case. If you wish to book you can do so by phoning 131304 or do it online at

  • Acting Treasurer
    You will have seen that Lindy has recently resigned from the committee. Over the last 18 months or so Lindy has done a great job as Treasurer and I'd like to thank her for all her efforts. 
    Since we are so close to the 2008 AGM,  Wayne Sutcliffe has agreed to temporarily act in this role until the AGM when all positions are thrown open - Thanks Wayne.

  • Nov 9 Trip - Where to go?
    The committee left an open slot in the trips calendar this year to allow for cancellations or special requests.
    The suggestion is that we choose a Sunshine Coast location for this one, as all three trips north this year were rain cancelled, but we can go anywhere that sparks enough interest..
    If you have a preference for a particular location let us know soon.

  • Christmas Party/AGM
    A reminder that this year's Christmas Party is on Saturday November 22.
    As per usual there will be a very short Annual General Meeting during this. If you have something you think should be put on the agenda or a suggestion for something the club should be doing can you email that in please.
    This year several current committee members are looking to resign, so I'm very keen to hear from anyone who is prepared to help the club out by serving on the committee for a year. These are all relatively simple roles and it would be great to get representation from both the current batch of new members and also the experienced long standing members of the club.
    There will be more details closer to the event.

  • Arapiles Trip Reports (and any others)
    Remember that a decent gear prize will be awarded at the Christmas party for the best trip report. At the moment
    Lindy's a shoe-in. Get writing, ....., not long left now.
    Also, please send in any photos you have from any BRC Trips.  These can be emailed in
    Just as an aside, our photo albums now have tags for members!!!
