Rich's 50th, Watlington camping weekend June 7th - 11th 2018

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
The unwilling rider and the one who leaves each control in turn without reluctance, with no desire to come back, obviously cannot be making the same journey, even though their brevets are identical.

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.

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