The board is now up. The new home of power in east manchester.
The board is 8' x 11' with 0.5' kickboard at about 40 degrees.
Was only just put up yesterday so all the holds have been stuck on with not much thought although will be soted in a few weeks
Here's a sneak preview including worm falling off:



also amusing ourselves with the old names

Looking good Jim. I can now rest easy that you're getting in shape for Switzerland. I don't remember G-units cock being so small. It felt bigger.

Nibs - just chop off the "watch?v=" bit, click the Youtube icon and post the rest of the end bit (in this case 8ufj5Jue_IM) between the bracketed bits that appear.  :)

For fucks sake, I just heard this. Is it asbestos or something? And is that why I've had a chest infection since its inception?
Unbelievable, I'm close to tears.

The chest infection is due to your dodgy student diet of cold kebabs and draughty bedsits. The fact the building is condemmed is due to it being rotten from the foundations up. probably.

Next tuesday is the last big session, all welcome.

I eat a healthy organic diet thankyou Andrew but granted sleeping on the department floor doesn't help!

I'd like to extend that invite to anyone wanting to come down. Will go for drinks in town after it if people are keen with the option of a spare room in my house and a space in my bed for any particularly strapping young lads ;)

If you can close a Captains of Crush #3, the latter part of that offer has already been cemented.

The building is being renovated, not demolished.  Should be though.

The board will be reborn.  It will be rebuilt, but this time harder, stronger and more powerfully.

We ain't gonna have time to get them out mate.  Priority is getting the holds and bolts out, maybe the panels if we can store them.  Hopefully the whole co-op should turn up on Tuesday to help strip it, except Donnelly who's getting drunk in Thailand at the moment.

We're on the case for a new venue.  It must be done.
