Right then boys and girls, as my life is back to (ab)normal I should be well up for this one :D

Plan at moment is drop down Friday night, help set up if possible/timing is right etc (will depend on work travel though)

Footy Saturday morning then "mosey on down" (is that still legal these days??) to the woods for day and then Sunday. Overnight will depend on the weather and my aversion to camping but we'll see :roll:

I have a few bits and bobs to do on the truck so may be mixing driving with fixing but at least it will give you lot something to take this p*ss out of when the spanner slips.

See ya soon

PS. and NO the latest rain showers have had nothing to do with me :twisted:

Thinking with the numbers being a bit limited and coming from here, invicta and FB, we might do better if everyone just brings a selection of dead stuff, baps etc with maybe just one person commiting to buy some charcoal for the BBQ...
What do you think fella?

Sounds like a plan Lisa with the kitty, might be easier all round and could work well.

What about if everyone pays a fiver in the kitty per person per day, or a tenner per person for the weekend, which will collect separately...should give a good amount to get a nice selection of dead stuff to cremate...I will speak to lloyd as there is a meat supplier up the yard (do you remember the trays of stuff lewis used to bring down?) and see what the crack is there. If you and maybe Sally can handle the shop runs (might be worth doing a separate run for sunday) that would be brill. Maybe a big pack of bacon from the place up the yard for bacon sarnie brekkies for the less hung over ones?

Cheers for bringing my bumper down!

As for times, we should be commencing set up shortly after lunch on friday, so early afternoon would be brill if you can help.

Cheers

Greg

Slight change to the food organisation of this weekender....

In the past we have done a supplies list for stuff needed grub and charcoal wise for the weekend, but this is going to be too awkward with people coming from FOG, invicta, and FB....and we dont wanna end up with a 1000 burgers and nothing else...(Me man...me bring meat)

So Lisa has suggested that we do a kitty for food, which will be separate from the monies for attending.
Basically we are looking at £5 per day per adult which then go to Sally and Lisa who will do the shopping runs and get the supplies for grub for everyone.
This I think will represent the best value for money for everyone, and be the best way to manage it.

We dont want to have to monitor who eats and who doesnt against a list of who has paid and who hasn't, so everyone will pay this with their arrival fee.
If there is vedgetablearians coming, please let Lisa and Sally know, and they will gather plants for you and some pretend meat that you can then tell us how much it tastes like the real thing. LOL

Friday night food will be taken care of by a couple of the guys/gals doing a Marinos run as in the past, for Fish n ships/Kebabs whatever, which you should sort them out for as per what you order.

Hope this makes sence, this is gonna be a blinding weekend.

Cheers
Greg
