Well that's the more blunt way of putting it but as usual he's dead right.

This change to Wing (assuming it's Wing Hall Oakham) is great news for me because it means I can come along. Please add my name to the list PB!

Sorry about radio silence folks.   I have been away for a few days sorting the logistics, packing and dealing with utilities, council, eta., eta. For mllePB's father who has migrated fro. Wales to England.   Busy imigrunts!*

I have a number of priority client jobs which take precedence but then I will be all over this and other things.

*  Actually, he is an Englishman  (well, a Manc  :demon: ) who has been in exile for 47 years and has now returned to lickle ingurlund.

Unsure if I can commit to the Friday, things have 'developed' while we were on holiday.

Can I have a straw poll of anyone wanting a communal cookout on the Saturday night? And, PB, if you have any 'fluence with the peeps at Wing, is there a chance of somewhere flatter and a bit more sheltered than 'Cyclone Corner'? Not looking forward to cooking with one hand whilst using the other and a foot to hold the gazebo down...

The other camping field is exposed to the south west completely so would offer even less shelter imo.

Can I please request a bit of a roll call so that we know approximately who is coming?   Don't forget, when you book online please put YACF in the 'group' section of the booking form and then you will be allocated a pitch near the rest of us. 

Torslanda is offering his renowned Saturday evening cook up so if you want so please also mention this in your 'roll call' post.

Thanks.

mllePB and I would love some of your nosh please Torslanda.

Anybody for a ride round the puddle on the Saturday?

We'll be there. 1 for food please torslanda. I'm not up to a puddle ride. Depending on weather I might do a small ride or a trip to the soft play with the duck.

I'm booked, but I'm afraid that I won't be able to make it now. Not sure how these things work, but  if anyone wants to use my paid-for pitch, they're welcome.

Edit: I now see that I have an emailed receipt with a bar code thingy, which I could forward to anyone who is interested.

Is anybody staying until Monday?   Just asking like.   I expect Cycleman and Apollo will be.

Our vague plan is to catch the train to Northampton on Friday and cycle to Wing via Market Harborough, returning the same way either Sunday or Monday.

At present the forecast is for moderate autumn temperatures, slight northerly winds and not too much sun.  I'm wondering if I can really be so lucky!!!   :D

Arriving late Friday afternoon, leaving Sunday, 'developments' have 'stabilised'. TFFT.

Won't have a bike with me - unless someone can find an extra couple of days between now & Thursday!

Will have a gazebo, tent and cooking stuff. I take it Friday night is 'fend for yourself'? Anyone want to split a Tesco curry for two?
