2014 Programme – out now.

Next years programme is out.

The monthly meetings start on the 9th of January with Tony Gregory telling us about the Wolverhampton canals over 60 years.

(NOTE – this meeting is on the SECOND Thursday, rather than the the usual First Thursday of the month, to keep it clear of the New Year / Christmas goings on)

The rest of the meeting are, as usual, on the first Thursday of the month.  Follow the link to the Meetings tab for the full programme.

Next years rallies (and the like) start with the first of this years BCNS Explorer Cruises – 9th May – 16th May, finishing at Titford Pumphouse, in time for the BCN Society Summer Rally at Titford Pump House on the 16th-18th May. May – 26th May, followed by the BCN Society Marathon Challenge, on the 24 – 25th May.  Two very different ways of exploring the BCN!  The explorer cruises are a delightfully relaxed way of exploring the BCN in company.  The Marathon Challenge does what it says on the tin – challenges you to see how much of the BCN you can do in 24 hours!  Both are great fun, but in very different ways.  (I know – I have done both)  Stuart and Marie (the organisers of the Explorer Cruises) have organised the second cruise so that they will not interfere with those on the Marathon Challenge going through locks.

Details and contacts for these events are on the Rallies tab of the diary.
This year, waterway photographer Kevin Maslin is running the first BCN Society Photography Workshop at Titford Pumphouse on 24 May.  Places on this are limited – contact Kevin on workshop@kevinmaslin.co.uk for details.  (The clash with the Marathon Challenge is deliberate – so that boats on the challenge can be photographed coming up the Crow)
The last rally is the Bonfire Rally, on 1st November.
