Thats right! Poi in the Punt will happen again this year on the earlier date of Saturday 31st May. I have tried to find a date which doesn't clash with anything (much) else to try to get maximum participation and also hopefully a date which will be fixed (i.e. last saturday in May) for the forseeable future.

The day will include a punt trip (funny boat with big stick for those who dont know- see the vid below) on the river cam involving much sillyness and possibly some falling in (yes thats me falling over in the vid redface ).

Theres usually time for a bit of lunch, some spinning in the afternoon followed by a burn and BBQ in the evening. Theres even talk of a tea tasting workshop with a variety of teas all the way from China courtesy of myself and Lazyangel. I'm sure we'll think of a few more as the day approaches too (ideas welcome) biggrin

There will be limited crash space available on the saturday night and if we get a lot of interest we can investigate local campsites to accomodate.

We've had a lot of fun doing PITP the last two years and this year will be no different. Look forward to seeing you there!

I'll post more details as the day approaches. In the mean time I encourage you to post your interest (so we can get an idea of numbers) and take a look at last years vid! weavesmiley

Dom, you need to be a facebook friend... but I don't think you're allowed on until you're 16?

Thank you muchly to everyone for a wonderul (and much needed) weekend in good company.

Tom, I believe you have my blue travel mug? Which I left by the barbeques when I returned to guys to crash out.

Dom, sorry for giving you a bit of a ribbing on here as well over last year. You actually did pretty well with the punt, even if you were a little silly and giddy with it wink
Will get you powering one next year though smile hug

Ahh no problem. I didn't do anything too stupid this year, most of that was Alex getting stuck on the tree - so i'm sure i'll make up for it next year!

See you all then!
