Socialising has always been an important part of Mendip caving, from beer and songs in the Hunter's Lodge Inn to the more formal Annual Dinners. Being more sophisticated than other clubs, we have a reputation for drinking tea rather than beer!
We usually arrange a social event on the first Fri/Sat/Sun of each month, ranging from a BBQ at the Cottage to the Annual Dinner in March/April
The tradition of singing caving songs is diminishing, but occasionally the Velvet Bottom Band will be found in the back room of the Hunters on a Saturday evening or Sunday afternoon
Cottage games are still popular, and you will often find MCG members attempting the Table Traverse or the Broom trick at the cottage, usually after a few pints!
