Match Report
The Downs School DAS vs  Caving
On: Wednesday, 30 Sep 2020
Venue: Away

Due to particularly inclement weather we abandoned the gorge walk and the group took a first trip in to Goatchurch Cavern instead, enjoying the wild life that inhabit the cave (spiders and bats) and finding their feet and nerves in this new, challenging and exciting environement! They were introduced to the geological history of the Mendips, cave formation and the formation of cave structures such as stalagmites and stalagtites - I wonder how much will be remembered as attention was more focused on the practical experience!

Both boys were fully engaged and each challenged themselves to overcome any trepidation and fears if any and embrace this new sport. We look forward to developing their skills and extending their experiences as the year progresses.
