    Bardsters Spring Bank Holiday May 27th - 30th

    As usual, we are all invited down to sunny Kent for the Spring Bank Holiday weekend, 27th - 30th May.

    If you've been before you know just how wonderful the place is and just how accommodating Paul and Huw the owner are.

    If you haven't been before just look at the previous meet-up threads and you'll see what we mean.

    Whilst this is called a Bank Holiday meet it is usually ok to turn up a day or two earlier but as the gate is now locked this has to be arranged with Paul/Huw.

    These are the details which will be updated/verified as necessary:

    Bardster now has the shooting rights there (non FAC air rifle/pistol only) and with his BASC insurance he is covered for organised shoots.

    Costs are 5 per pitch, per night.

    Site location postcode is TN27 9EY

    Map for site once you're zooming in on a map:

    .............the very point of the white arrow is down a lane off the tarmac, the corner of the field.

    Ideas of what to bring:

    - water, as much as you need for the weekend
    - food, there will invariably be a fire to cook on and there is also a communal bbq. Otherwise bring your own stoves.
    - booze / soft drinks depending on your own preferences.
    - a bag of charcoal for BBQ
    - sharp and shiny toys for the "show and tell"
    - anything relevant you have for trade or sale

    This site is quite large, very rural and peaceful with plenty of space for pitching tents, tarps or hammocks. There are composting loos but no other facilities. The nearest pubs and villages are a drive away.

    Hurrah, and lashings of ginger beer!

    I'll try and head out on the Friday this time as long as I can escape the M25.

    No bother at all Steve.

    Toby hopes to be there and maybe another mate as well.

    This time I should be there
    The paradox of work is that many people hate their jobs,
    but they are considerably more miserable doing nothing.

    DD, if the thought of footwell puddles puts you off then just Google the Uriwell Unisex Travel Urinal. Come to think of it, it would be handy in your hammock too
