Posted: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

Posted:well I've got a load of crash space at mine, and there are other potential spaces for people to crash in if need be, depends how many people turn up really shrug

I have beds for 12 people, so long as some people don't mind sharing a bed (2 double beds, two single beds, one double air mattress, one double futon mattress, two single futon mattresses) but bringing sleeping bags is advised.

It would be lovely to come to this and see some old faces, and hopefully some new ones too smile

Guy, it would be lovely to have some crash space at your house. Help with cooking, tea making, washing up and skinning up fully provided.

And Sim is a sneaky bugger by bagsying a double bed specifically so he can get me in it too wink kiss

You all have to come its been sooo long since I've seen most of you.. Play last year I think. Thats rubbish!

Whats this about free punts Guy? That would be cool.

By the way it usually works out to about 10 a head for the punts depending on how long were out and the number of ppl per punt, so if your coming assume this cost, if Guy manages to organise something, thats 10 more to spend on food/drinks/presents for me and Guy biggrin biggrin

bounce

P.S. Siege, "might be tempted" isn't good enough, I havnt seen you for aaaages, which considering we live in the same city is baaaad! so you must come, oh and we should go for a pint soon too biggrin

If there isn't enough space at Guy's for everyone then there may be space for 1 or 2 at my place; but it's always more fun if we can crash in one place if at all possible!

i second your motion, with added suggestion that i saw on some cooking show, this guy made raisin rum by pricking the raisins with pins then putting into the rum and leaving it for a week.
