After the positive feedback from my earlier post, I've been in contact with the manager at Southern Counties Leisure who was delighted to hear from us and is more than happy to welcome us back again.
All the details remain the same as last year.
We are going to be camping at the Southern Counties Leisure complex and as it's a bit bleak in January the manager has once again offered to open up one of the hotel function rooms for us to eat and drink in on both nights between 6.30pm and 11pm. We will have our own bar area and they have a very good bar menu with meals priced between £8 and £12
All the pitches are on grass and all have an electric hookup and water. We are also welcome to use a hard standing pitch if we prefer. There is also a brand new shower block onsite for us to use.
The only thing that is not allowed is an open fire, but, as we will hopefully be indoors in the evening I don't think this is a great loss considering what we're going to be getting in return.
So, the details are;
Southern Counties Leisure
January 24-26 2013
Camping will be £7.50 per person per night.
Max Number Of Attendees - No limit - the more that come, the bigger of room we will be given!
Shower block with toilets, water and electric on every pitch. Hotel onsite for the softies!! There is also a karting track and clay pigeon shooting.
Saturday Ride Outs
I will lead a road ride during the day with various stop overs and Steve (tea007) has kindly stepped forward to lead an off road ride on Salisbury Plain. It's early days but he has suggested that knobblies are a must as well as a willingness to get wet and muddy and a good sense of humour! He also asks that you meet him near Salisbury, which is about 45min to an hour away. Details for these will be available nearer the time.
Either towards Dorchester or towards Yeovil on the A37 both about 10 miles away.
