OK, yesterday evening stuff as agreed as follows...

1. The date is confirmed as Saturday 5th January running into Sunday 6th.  jibers can now make it - hooray!  :thumbsup:
2. We're NOT having karaoke, but then again  :demon:
3. We ARE celebrating the happy union of Jem and 'fandango but doing the whole wedding thing all in one day from stag / hen night to wedding reception (happy couple then retire to tent for shagging - remember to keep the noise down!)

Other stuff may have been agreed but I can't remember what it was.

Yep, just checked, I land on 3rd so that's OK for me..  :thumbsup:

I think item 4 was BYOC for the after party (Guest list, RSVP GenSec/Chief Fire Officer)

I fly back on 4th so I’m sure I’ll be around for at least part of the day.

I was too shocked to reply.

What responsible retailer would even sell a Trangia without one ?

Oddly, Trading Standards aren't interested, I've just phoned them.  Shocking!

BTW there are a few Trangia Facebook groups where filthy Trangia porn is readily available.

Brew-off participation is perfectly possibly using a pan.

You might, but more than made up for by the increased difficulty rating, I'd have thought.  Similar to attempting a triple rather than double somersault in a diving competition.

I think we can safely say tippers will win the brew off if he manages a triple somersault dive into his Trangia pan.

Right then my lovelies, listen up...

I have been in touch with Dee at The Compasses and booked the Green Room, camping is booked too  I have also booked a room for The Current Mrs R, there seem to be a few left and are reasonably priced.

Does anyone have any thoughts on where we might go at lunchtime? 

EDIT: perhaps we should check out The Chequers at Roxwell on Wednesday evening?  Or what about The Three Elms at Chiggers?

Annoyingly Junior 2 has her birthday on Epiphany, and it looks like its going to be that way EVERY YEAR!   :facepalm:

So whilst I'm likely to manage a pass out of the night of the 5th, I'll probably need to make like a pumpkin around midnight.

Fear not, the tried and trusted Epiphany concept allows for folks to dip and out as REAL LIFE allows. The important fing is you’re there for as much as you can manage!
