The sun is shining, the weather is improving..
Does any one fancy a picnic type affair on the common in S'hampton on a saturday day to evening and maybe beyond??

I tried to get something together for this weekend - but it all went a bit flat..

Anyhoo.. If you think it could be a good idea.. lettuce know.. and I'll try to sort it out..

picnics by close to the sea side..

Mum , dont worry about the kids, remember the old saying safety in numbers.......also like you said big stix will help! the common seems to be a hot spot for the late night wierdos, i go there every week!

Looking 4wd to it!

Well, I'm letting them know. I'm not going to force them at staff point or anything . I'm guessing there will be a few poi'ers at Decadance on saturday as well, so I'll be running around telling them all about it as well!
Not sure if I'll be driving over or getting the train, but if anyone needs someone to travel with, I'll be heading over early. I'm not scary or anything.

If you're not confused, you're not thinking about things hard enough.

Watch out, this thread's going to fall off in a minute!
Phew...just in time
Well my other half has agreed to me having some time off from being mum so I can go. And should be bringing along another new convert so it's looking good. Now all I've got to worry about is the weather...

Hey guys,

Was at the common the weekend, and found out that we will not be alone on the 26th, seems the fair will be there to, so if anyone gets bored of spinning you can go get spun by a machine!

I checked out where they are located and there is still miles of room, however parking the car outside the cowherds may be a problem, you may have to stick the wheels down the road a bit.

Just thought id let ya know.

See you all soonz!

So important he posted it twice

Soooooo, who do we have down as definates?
I'm coming (obviously) but I'm not sure how many of the Guildford crew are - Did we actually mention it to them Stixxy? I don't think I did...

I'll have to find a bongo or two to get some funky rhythms a-going. Sadly, I can't get my kit and my staffs in the car at the same time

The LAST train from So'ton main station to London Waterloo is at 00:15 and gets in at 01:52.

I think it costs 22.70 for a standard return, or 15.40 with a Young Persons Railcard.

If anybody fancies giving me a lift I'll be well up for coming down.

This probably isn't very helpful, but I can give you a lift down to So'ton, but I'm staying with friends down there over night (altough I haven't told them this yet...) so can't offer you a lift back.

I'll speak to my mates though and see if they have any spare floor space (It might be flea ridden though, they are students )

I'll need a lift off either you or Durbs if thats cool. I'm gonna try and get my house mates to come down too so lifts might not be possible.
Are you guys going to be out to play tonight in Guildford? I'm gonna try and get my arse on the train over there.

I'm sure I've had drinks at the Cowherds before without eating but never mind, my college local came up with the It was lovely to meet you all! Thank you to everyone who let me play with their toys. Durbs has especially inspired me to make my own staff As I left the common I could see the fire nearly as far away as Boldrewood. Hope we can all get together again soon when the skies are clearer!
