    Oy Oy folks, normally I'd be inviting you to a ropage day, but no this time we going for the big kahuna and making a goddamn weekend of it!

    The rules are the same. If you want to have a bit of fun learning about ropes, doing a bit of abseiling, learn some SRT, learn rope cross over techniques or even a bit of basic knot tying then get yourself along.

    As always there will be a beginners session - folks we are not an abseiling club so this is not a purpose built abseil area. What you will get instead is us teaching you the abseil basics in a safe environment, followed by a bigger drop followed by a lesson in how to climb a rope. Then its time to get your arse up there for the BBQ.

    For those who know what to expect and what they are doing we can possibly rig a bridge swing. @Bigjobs is trying to cater to those who have never had anything to do with ropes to those who have lots of experience in the art of ropage so we can all come together and share skills and knowledge.

    If you have your own kit bring it along if not then we pretty much have enough to meet requirements.

    Oh yeah I said it was a weekend mlarky didnt I, bring your camping gear and we will have a good day on the ropes then have a laugh camping too.

    Yeah we can has a list too....
