Watch that Gossamer bloke, he just uses it all as an excuse to flog his ever growing pile of dodgy hats.

The 5 of us went for a site visit last Sunday - here are some pics ...

(Alex's pics are on Facebook if you want to see Calum, Vinny, Mick and I smiling despite being freezing cold!))

Camping list will be open soon

We did a mine visit - well worth doing and many thanks to Dudley Dave for a great tour ;D





this is the field where we'll be camping, having the show, BBQing etc (in fact doing everything!)  It's much bigger than it looks in this photo!

Very exciting!

I work with solar panels and batteries etc, and have been thinking of setting up a solar powered phone / USB charging station where folk can put a small donation in the kitty for a charge of their USB devices.

Not sure what insurance issues would need to be dealt with or how to lock up such devices whilst charging, but I'm keen if people think it's a worthwhile idea.  ???

We can perhaps discuss during the conference-bonfire at Shell Island in ~10 days time.

I'm getting all excited seeing these tempting photos.

The field looks like it is huge already, but you say it is bigger than it looks in the photo?

The field, is sort of on two levels, with the main one being The larger, lower down, with the upper nearer on pic the booking in, evening entertainment, and classics car Sunday on the Sunday.
