Putting this up here a bit early as I've booked the rally field at Watlington for my 50th in 2yrs time!
Thought I'd get in early as the site gets busy  ;D

I'll check my diary. Hmmm, a bit of a problem getting an advance train ticket at the moment...  :D

Today I would love to come. However, I have trouble planning 2 months ahead let alone 2 years. Please can you bump this in January 2018?

We'd be delighted subject to the usual caveats that more than two years of life might throw into the mix.   :thumbsup:

Blimey I could be retired, the kids could have left home and be working, I could go and see my daughter in Oxford. My wife would never agree; still two years to collect brownie points, negotiate diplomatically etc. That is a very tempting thought (although it might take me the intervening two years just to cycle from Limoges to Oxford  ??? )

According to my formerly-beloved's online calendar, that's a no-Cubs weekend for me.  Mind, at this point I can't work out if that makes me more or less likely to be able to attend!

Theoretically yes, it's probably enough time for me to dig out my camping equipment !

You could also go for a "last year in my 40's" party, next year. :)
Actually, it is rocket science.

In all honesty, I can't commit that far ahead. But, as of now, the only possible clash would be cricket (I don't think dates are out for 2018 Tests yet). Put me down as a tentative. Thanks for the long notice - 2 years should give me time to get my legs up to scratch.

We were there this week.  It was rather wet but I can report that the site stayed well-drained despite the floods on the roads all around; the soil is very chalky.  Unfortunately we had to cut the trip short because there's no way to dry damp towels (the site at Bletchingdon has a tumble dryer and an indoor games barn, which iare both godsends if you're in a tent for days of rain).
Never tell me the odds.

Looks like I might be joining you - I'll leave others to decide if this is good or not!

I put this in the diary when the thread first started and to date nothing is clashing.   :thumbsup:
