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

If you book it today it'll be 27 return, I wouldn't advise buying it on the day, as it's likely to burn a hole in your pockets.



(You can probably pick up your ticket from the station too.)



Let me know, I'll be holding off getting my ticket for now, need to figure out exact times.

Posted:hm.. ill be catching a lift back with steaks it seems.. but im all up for catching the train there with you.. not too sure about times either smile



hug



edit: on the other hand, checking out the prices for the bus, it works out much more cost effective for me to get to cambridge with national express, so i may go for that option as im on quite a budget.



also, what time in the day does it start, and where exactly is it?



cheers, petey hug

Posted:Right, finally time for some details smile



We will be meeting at The Granta pub at 11:30am. Which is here:14 Newnham Ter, Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, CB3 9EX: http://maps.google.co.uk/maps?f=q&hl...=14&iwloc=A



Its not far from the town centre so I would recommend walking from there. Its a bit further from the train station so if anyone needs a lift PM me and I can work something out.



We will not be doing lunch as such but there will be time to grab some food at the pub, or go to a nearby co-op, or bring something along if you want. Baked goodies is coming too but some more snacks and drinks for the punts cant hurt either biggrin



We will leave the pub at around 1pm and head off up the river. This will give people time to go to the shop, drop stuff at Guys house etc before we leave.



Cost wise it will be about 5 each for the punts. BUT this depends on how many people we have in each punt as its an hourly rate per punt, so it could be a bit more or a bit less (probably less if anything cos Guy is a leg-end and is trying to organise a discount for us). We will be going punting even if its raining so if the weather looks a bit iffy bring an umberella!



We'll get back from punting about 4-4:30 I guess so will have a bit of chill out time at Guys, grab some bbq food from a nearby shop and then head down to Grantchester meadows for the evening which will go on as long as people want it to smile



I think that covers everything except to say YAY I can't wait! See you in a couple of weeks hug hug

Yes, if you park near Guys house you are well outside the stupid parking controls and a short walk from The Granta, so win win smile I'll post directions later (at work atm) smile

Yes probably, but I'd rather save car space for people who don't know the area and might need to drop stuff at Guys. So if lots of people are in need of lifts you'll have to walk wink ubbloco
