Just did a basic split into a new thread as most subsequent posts related to the No Confidence motion which I also added as a front page article.

New thread here:  http://ukbouldering.com/board/index.php/topic,27926.msg547374/topicseen.html#new

Is the BMC really not interested in promoting climbing etc to the masses?

If so, then why do they create this kind of content?

I don't believe for a minute they are only interested in trying to get those who already climb/scramble/hill walk to become members.

An update on the 'Mend our Mountains' campaign would seem overdue, if anyone is reading this!

I feel pretty up to date on Mend our Mountains. Kinder, Exmoor and Brecon work already done, others ongoing:

I seem to remember the biggest circle on the Venn diagram of BMC members self-identified as hillwalkers. How isn't that content aimed at them?

So who is this targeted at? BMC members who are self-identified as lazy boulderers?

That's excellent about Mend our Mountains. I had (wrongly it seems) assumed that the actual work had been held up by red tape etc. Odd that there's hardly been any follow up since the campaign a year ago.

Umm, again how is it not content for hillwalkers?

Maybe they've been a bit remiss in not emailing MOM updates directly to contributors, I don't know. Plenty via @BMC_Walk on twitter.
