Memorial trip to unveil the plaque in memory of Dave 'Wig' Irwin. A very good turnout from a whole range of age groups. Lager was drank at Cerberus Hall and some classical violin music played live as part of the farewell party. We had a very quick trip and were fortunately last people in and first people out as we had to get back to helping at the Cheddar Running Club Half Marathon.
<br>The evening entertainment was an auction of all of Dave's old caving books and photographs followed by a live band.
Caving: Swildons Hole (11-Nov-2007)
1,876:15 cumulative hours
The plan was to go to Sump 9 for Dave's first trip beyond the sumps. However the usual problem of cave diving kit not liking the carry down to sump 2 prevented us from going any further. One of the cylinders had a damaged valve that couldn't be fixed on scene.
<br>Dave had a quick dive through sumps 2&3 with the other working cylinder before we headed out.
