Report by Matt Ewles

One of the largest groups of YUCPC down Long Churn ever! After a couple of days of relatively dry weather, but preceeded by wet weather earlier in the week, we suspected that Long Churn would be sportingly wet (but suitably safe) and we weren't disappointed. We had a relatively efficient start considering the numbers, and we were at Selside and getting changed by 1pm in reasonable sunshine. A full head to toe soaking was gained by most (and for any freshers reading this, this is NOT what happens in most caves - getting soaked above the waist is fairly uncommon). But despite this, most people seemed to keep smiling, and it was nice to hear people saying how much they enjoyed it. Good efforts everyone! The next cave will be drier...
