DSC May 15 - 17 (or longer if you wish)
« on: Apr 30, 2015, 21:50:10 »
With the imminent moving of the Website and it being only 2 weeks away, I thought I'd better get started on this. 
Please check your posts haven't got lost in the move.

It appears that Cairds Campsite is available including the Glamping POD.

So who would like to go?

I will go if I have not had the call from the hospital, and would like the pod

It's entirely up to you Roger.  I just wanted to say that you don't have to go on the Friday and come home on the Sunday/Monday if the weather is good and you wanted to (pitch availability dependent of course).

I sometimes go early/stay late and Fay has done so in the past as well if the weather forecast is good, but then we are retired and are more flexible.

Alas this is the weekend of my 50 mile race(http://www.centurionrunning.com/north-downs-way-50-2015/), might try and pop down on Sunday to say hi if I can move.

Long range weather forecast is looking good for Saturday next week on my favourite weather site yr.no  but we all know you can't rely on long range weather forecasts.

It would be great to get at least one clear evening next weekend. 

So far the following people are interested:
Fay (already booked the Glamping POD I believe)
Carole
Mike & Petra
Roger?

Can't go:
Ivor
Robert

No-one else has replied.

Great, added to the list.  It will be good to try out Cairds as a DSC venue and the chances of getting it over the summer months are pretty small due to the size of the camp and summer bookings.   They have been extending the camping field into the allotment which will help a little.  Not sure if it's ready for use yet though.
