What's more fun than spending a weekend camping in a damp field? :whistle:

Forecast looks ok for Saturday and Sunday.

It's a proper field - they are designed to be rained on sir... and the approach track is firm and stood up well to the rain last year with no issues.

Besides a little mud adds to things in an "interesting" way :D

Yep, but for example one of the previous meets got cancelled because of standing water (must be a down south thing). B) I was just checking !

Look out for the banner. Coming from Halford, just past an old knackered wind turbine, over the brick bridge, right at the banner & follow the tracks.

See you there.
