DSC May 6 - 8th
« on: Apr 18, 2016, 14:01:39 »
I have heard from Pete that he will be able to accommodate us in May, he says the previous wet ground is drying out. 
I know it's 2 1/2 weeks away, but who is up for it - weather permitting?

I shall be going
I have a friend from Kelling who would like to go

I'll be back in France.

So is no-one else interested in coming, or are you waiting to see?  It would be useful to know who is thinking about it.

I am thinking about it but Ian is going to Yorkshire with the tent!  If I knew for sure the weather would be OK I would investigate hiring a caravan.

Hi Delphine. 

There is the Glamping POD on site, normally Fay reserves it but it is first come first served.  Also the owner has a B&B 100 yards away and you could stay there and leave your kit on the field if you wanted to.

Current state of play:

A heatwave is predicted for the DSC weekend, but at the moment no clear skies, though this could easily change before then.  Clear skies are predicted on Tuesday and Wednesday evenings this week but annoyingly I can't go early.

Those who have said they are planning to attend so far weather permitting:

Carole
Fay
Julian
Delphine is thinking about it.
Doug and Rose might attend one evening

Can't attend:
Robert, Mark, Duncan

Sorry but won't be able to make it this weekend as I need to finish some work off on the house.
