DSC 20 - 22nd March
« on: Mar 04, 2015, 20:17:21 »
Sorry to start this so early, but I am going on holiday next week and will be away for DSC, so thought I'd get the thread started to find out who is going and where every-one wants to go so I can at least make some enquiries/provisional booking. 

So who would like to go and where do you want to go?

I would like Cairds as I have a dodgy leg

Peter at Cairds intimated that we could go there in March (i.e. he was not booked up).

I'll check if that is still the situation.

I'm a maybe, but think I need to stop procrastinating and just bl**dy go. I want a hookup though. Other than that, anywhere dark and dry.

I have sent a message to Cairds asking for condition of the ground, and availability including the glamping Pod for Fay.

I think since some of you would like to try out this camp this would be the time to try it out, as he gets too booked up during the summer months.  We can then go to Running Waters during the summer. 

Could some-one volunteer to finalise the booking wherever you go in my absence please. 

We always go to camps with Hook up these days Kenny.

Reply from Cairds:

Those dates will be fine and the Pod will be available for then as well. Ground is still wet in places but improving with this better weather.

So would you like to try Cairds this month as you might not get a chance again until the autumn?
Maybe having to leave cars in the car park if the ground hasn't dried sufficiently.

I intend to be there.  But Saturday evening I will likely be out at the AAS Stargazing Live public event.
