People who are total beginners would be out of their depth and have between now and then to learn wink

People who have basics will find it challenging and rewarding and will enjoy the emphasis on how to create routines and flows from their skills.

People who have good skills will find it very exciting as 'beyond basics' workshops are hard to find.

I have booked the school for those dates. I have not been able to confirm with the lady who runs the scout hall however as she has been away the last few weeks. However I am willing to say that those dates are *GO* because if necessary we could run the event only at the school.. though those of you who were there last year will know how wonderful it was to have the scout hall for a social space, as well as camping. I am expecting to talk to the scout hall lady in the next few days though; Ok you wonderful keen bunnies!!!



(Rougie, you can be any kind of spinner you like ubblol Come along! Enjoy!) hug

Still waiting to hear back from the scout hall people rolleyes
They are changing their management committee so the booking request is on hold...I doubt there will be any problem with those dates, it's just an admin thing.

As soon as I know, I will start a new thread with all this year's details. smile
