Survey Competition Feedback

Should be a feedback slot tomorrow. This occurred, but no punters. Wook + Andrew made notes. Writing up something for speleology would be a good idea. ACTION:Andrew will try to write up. Send in copies.

Other thoughts in meeting

Dave clucas spent time fettling the cave surveying web site, and is happy to do some more. Should make him superuser so he can actually fix things ACTION: Andrew (done)

We want to volunteer some basic training for BCA party. Need to find contact and ask if they want it. ACTION: Kevin

ACTION: Wookey promises to update software list.

BCRA motion to adopt UIS symbols asking for more info. Andrew is preparing report/reply. ACTION:Andrew

Kevin tried to blag more prizes from Leica after getting their kit on TV, but they said no. Previous contact has moved on. He will try one more time but we may have to drop back to BCRA-sponsored prizes. Cambrian were considering sponsoring prizes, but nothing happened. Next year consider prize status again. Maybe drop archive award.

BCRA talking about updating the surveying guide. Conversation occurred last year and all agree would be good idea, but no-one volunteered to actually do it.
