Maybe we could use this thread to keep each other informed of what we are doing. As Andrew says we should keep within the guidelines and use our judgement. He also says that rock climbing activities should be decided individually. I am in total agreement with these sentiments.
For myself, I initially did not go climbing even when the BMC said it was OK.
Recently, I have been to Peak Scar. There was no one there so as far as Covid was concerned I felt absolutely no worries- being out in York would have been far more dangerous as far as contracting or passing on the virus is concerned.
It would be interesting and useful if other members could make the effort and post here about their position. Have you been out? If so, did you go to a hotspot and did it feel safe? Are you intending to go out soon? Are you going to keep suspending activities for the foreseeable future? etc etc
I think this type of conversation is important to keep a sense of cohesion and friendliness alive within the club. We can’t meet on Thursdays at the moment so we should try to maintain contact at least virtually.
I hope you are all well.
I think that it is generally agreed that Ozymandias was inspired by the Egyptian Pharoah Ramesses II.
Very nice to hear from you Marjan . Hope you are well.
Obviously Andrew’s post just refers to YMC meets eg on a Thursday night.
Individuals can (if they wish) follow BMC guidelines and go climbing. If people do climb then they should do so in a “private” capacity and not imply that it is a club activity. Perhaps it would be best if they do not wear club T shirts.
As I have said previously I no longer want to debate the rights and wrongs of the committee view vs the BMC. For what it is worth I haven’t been climbing and still remain on the fence on the matter.
John – I am very tempted to argue back because I like a good debate and I disagree with a lot of what you have said in your last post.
However, I will stick with my previously stated intention not to contribute substantively to this thread any more.
A few of us have had quite a lot to say and I would be happy to hear other views if people can get the energy to post. Who knows, they may help me to get off the fence on one side or the other.
I hope everyone is well and in reasonable spirits. Things may be difficult for some members of the club but I think many of us should count our blessings that we are not having a hard time of it.
Very much looking forward to meeting up with you when circumstances permit.
I said that I wouldn’t post on this thread anymore. I am only disobeying my own rule to thank Andrew for his friendly comment.
We are all friends or colleagues and I am a sentimental old fart.
