Ray D (SGL) will be coming to DSC for the first time and says while he has all the gear he has no idea....but he is referring to camping not to imaging ha ha! 

He has offered to go out and get a take away, so I wondered what every-one thought about that for perhaps Saturday night.  I think Chinese and fish and chips are possibles, but I think he needs to go to only one place as they are each quite a drive in different directions.

So assuming he is OK with this, what are the votes for Chinese, Fish and Chips, Neither.
I will also separately E mail him and Dave T who are not on the Forum, though I think Dave T is currently at SGL star party in Hereford, talk about a glutton for punishment, but maybe he can pick up E Mails.

Saturday after midnight and Sunday night are looking good ATM except there could be a moderate breeze.  friday night is part cloud and part clear up to midnight.

OMG I didn't know about that.  Need to keep an eye on things over next 24 hours then as no point in going if its going to be really windy and the forecast not great anyway.

I think it's going to be a NO GO in that case, can every-one planning to go keep an eye on this forum and "check in" a) To say you have seen this post and b) Once a decision has been reached.

I will keep in touch with Ray and Dave as they are not on this forum.

It'll be disappointing if we don't go but the forecast does look a bit "lively" :(

Today's update on the weather at Ticehurst on yr.no is:

Friday - partly cloudy until 1am then cloud & rain (up to 4.4 mm) with moderate breeze 6 m/s

Saturday - Rain all day until 7pm then some clear skies until 1am with some cloud but a strong breeze at 12 m/s (I have not learnt all the wind rates but I think 12 m/s is pretty darn strong for our purposes).

Sunday (for those who can stay) - no rain during the daytime and partly cloudy 7pm - 1am and then clear through the rest of the night.  Wind rate 6 m/s

The forecast is changing frequently, at the moment it doesn't look great for those who can only come Friday and Saturday.

We'll make a final decision this evening, can you all make you comments so I know what you are thinking?

If DSC is cancelled and the forecast remains the same I might go down for just the Sunday night.
