Just a quick reminder to everyone to check your safety/rescue equipment ie throwbags etc
Especially throwbags, the knot tying the bag to the rope should be a bowline. There was an incident last night where a yak throw bag came off the rope and in a rescue situation was not ideal. So double check all your equipment, and of you are unsure ask any of the instructors or myself

It would be a good idea to organise a quick safety session some thursday evening to go through things like that with members. How many people know how to tie a bowline or figure of eight?

Rescue one handed bowline on myself - yes, no problem. The rest - I'm very interested to learn!
