Posted:Ok, so the deal is, weekend meet, along the Wales/England border.



Dates: 29th Sept-1st October



Location: Court Farm Campsite , Llanthony, nr. Abergavenny for a minimal fee of 2 per person per night. 4 quid!! Two pubs within walking distance and a really old priory... Court farm have said they will cordon off half the campsite for camping and spinning, but no bonfires sorry!



All other information can be found on the wiki including a list of attendees definately and maybe, please add your name as soon as possible if you're coming because i need to let the campsite know!



Wiki is at borderpatrol.wikispaces.com. And contains also a space for arranging lifts. The nearest train station is Abergavenny and it's 15mins drive, so if you come by train at all, please put it on there, you WILL need a lift!



if anyone is coming by train, can you please please please let me know beforehand what time roughly you will arrive in abergavenny, because i am less than convinced that my phone will work!



Hope to see lots of you there!

Would anyone find it helpful to have a wiki started for this, and someone to keep an eye on it? (I've got an admin account at the site the Falmouth wiki is on.)

Is everything confirmed yet as to location?



I think so, the woman at Llanthony seems to be perfectly happy for us to spin on the campsite, it's pretty big and we get half of it. it's also near a river so whoever's on fire can jump in there...? biggrin On a more serious note, though, i reckon there should be enough space so long as everyone's careful spinning off, don't really want to ruin her grass... No bonfires though, but if anyone has an open stove/firepit that is reasonably transportable, that might be ok?

and i found out both pubs serve food, but only in the evenings, so stock up on breakfast, and extra alcomohol.

Polarity> if you can set up a wiki, it would be cool, for car lifts etc. i would also like to keep this list going here for a little while because i need to confirm numbers to the campsite (or at least get a more accurate idea about them). It could also be useful to find out who might come by train as they'd have to get to abergavenny and be picked up from there...

but there's no hurry on that, for now i just need numbers, so add your name to the list as a definate or you can be a maybe if you want to come cheers thankyou please with a cherry on top smile

Posted:in case anyone is curious, this map gives you a fairly accurate representation of the size of the place. So there isn't much there, but it's darn pretty and you can all survive perfectly well for two nights. Location wise, everything to the right of the yellow line is England, so i couldn't get much closer to the border if i tried smile

Posted:I've moved the attendance list to the wiki, (which is at borderpatrol.wikispaces.com), to save problems with the list getting out of order from people posting close too each other, or quoting old versions(At least this isn't the Fal4 thread, I had to read through about 50 pages to get an accurate attendance list for that).



It also makes it easier to keep track of who needs lifts/pickups from the station.

***wi-wi-wi wickedy wiki***

please add your name if you are a definately or just a maybe, so's i can get the nice lady at llanthony some numerical value for the quantity of invaders...

***update 2 update 2 update 2***

contacted both the bullshead campsite and court farm at llanthony, and here's the deal...

Of course they would both love to have loads of people camping there, but:

Bullshead (i.e. the pub) says they can't think of anywhere nearby where we can spin fire as they don't ave insurance for it on the campsite, so it may require some sort of scout to go visit, and find a spot. 5 per tent, per night.

Court Farm at Llanthony, which is not far away from 2 pubs (albeit fairly small ones) says they can cordon off half the campsite for us to camp and spin. Llanthony's not big, we'd be like 100m from the priory, 500m from the pub, but the bunkhouse is already booked out so bang goes that idea. camping is 2pp, per night. I don't know if either of the pubs do food, but there is also a tea room that does cream teas, and i'm hoping it will be open... nevertheless it's only 15mins from abergavenny, i'm sure we can get supplies in for 2 nights...

verdict?

I'm swaying llanthonywards....

***end update***

***Update hear ye hear ye!!***
Dates most definately decided as being the last weekend of September. 30/09 & 01/10, i repeat for those hard of hearing or with a strange concept of time... the thirtieth of september and first of october, 30th Sept & 1st Oct!!

Hope that's clear enough for everybody biggrin (not the beginning!):D biggrin

location still to be confirmed...

***end update***

Here's a speculative idea for those HoPpers in the Wales/Bristolly/Herefordshirey areas... A meet, somewhere along the border, location to be confirmed, date to be confirmed, and length of time to be confirmed. But was wondering how many people would be interested.

I was thinking more of a modest weekend event, fri eve, sat and sunday, than an epic five day weekender, and chose this particular location because i reckon it wouldn't be too far to travel for people from all the above listed areas...

The location... I might need some help on, but i was thinking somewhere along Offas Dyke (Black Mountains border) or perhaps more down towards the Forest of Dean area... and some time late summer to early autumn, when it will be very pretty smile

If anyone's up for this as an idea, please post, if anyone has a good suggestion of somewhere to go, definately please post, and if anyone had a good suggestion for an appropriate weekend please post also... then basically i need someone to organise it.... biggrin ubblol

I don't know if it would be possible to get near this place but i know that in the past i have definately both camped there, got hypothermia there on DofE, and stayed comfortably in a converted barn... But where it is to be, it'd largely depend on the who's, when's and how many's involved.

All the update bits are irrelevant now the venue has been decided upon and anyone not wishing to read through the whole thread might find the first post a bit confusing. I know I did.
