Not a great deal of activity in Bagshawe this year from Team Average.
Trips have been limited due to work commitments, however after last years distraction of the La-La dig, this year we had to decide if we should remain at Dead Ahead or leave and carry on with the lower series dig.
We dragged all the kit needed in during the winter months, to get cracking at dead ahead. The plan soon changed when the water levels dropped. Our quick referendum decided to leave Dead Ahead and have another crack at La-La.
We have made good progress over a few trips, and have now opened up a standing room chamber. The way on seems to be upwards still, so I decided to consult John Taylor for details of the sump survey’s. On speaking to John we now realise our referendum may have been a sham (typical). We believed we were digging towards a tube, when in fact there is a good possibility it could go to surface close to the resurgence.
With water levels now back to normal, the Dead Ahead(xit) may be over after all. 2019 looks to be a return to Dead Ahead, although Mr Eavis informs me in a vote of no confidence that the dig is full of water.
To make matters worse, the Bowling Green has changed hands, and we are now left without a suitable watering hole. We should have seen this coming and arranged a proper backstop, maybe Mr Farage could help us with that one...
Onwards to glory (even if we are a bit slow).
