2010 UK Meet - Date and Venue Confirmed - Bookings now accepted!
« on: February 15, 2010, 03:07:24 PM »
Ladies, Gents and Ben,

The date and venue for the 2010 multitool.org UK Meet are now confirmed as:

Saturday 22nd / Sunday 23rd May 2010
Shipston On Stour
Warwickshire


Precise details of the site, including maps and directions are available by PM to me, but we feel it's best not to publish exact details on the 'net in case anyone dodgy like Mike LOTS is reading.... oh, hang on  :think: :)

The owner of the site we have chosen seemed like a friendly chap, and didn't hang up when I started telling him about what we are and will likely be doing, which is good. I can summarise our chat as follows:

Knives - Check
Camper Vans - Check
Fire - Check
Arrive / Depart when we feel like it - Check
Ray Mears wannabe activities - Check

We've chosen this venue based on location and a number of factors that should make it perfect for our event. The pitch fees (including the camper van) will be a fiver. If anyone brings a big top (or 8 berth jobby) he might want a bit more :D

All multitool.org members are welcome to attend the event on either day free of charge, however tent pitches are limited. To that end, I'd be grateful if people could confirm their bookings, by sending 5 GBP by PayPal to the e-mail address on my profile. Please use the "Personal Payment Owed" option so I don't get any fees, and make sure I have enough info to link your PP payment to your multitool.org user ID! - ta :tu: Prompt payment secures your pitch!

If anyone wants or needs any more info, drop me a PM and I'll do my best to sort you out.

In previous years, these events have been great fun and a number of good friendships have been created amongst the membership here - let's hope for even more attendees this year  :cheers:

Wow, I don't even qualify as a Lady!  :rofl:

Great work Dave. You will receive my payment in a moment.  :tu:

Like Dave said, the previous ones have been superb.  All the guys that go are superb (yes even including Mike) and I can guarantee a great day for anyone that attends.

Look forward to seeing you all in May  :cheers:

I'm back!!

Payment sent :tu:

Talking of big tents.  If the weather is inclement a large tent might be a good idea.  I have such a beast.  If you don't mind giving me a hand putting it up :)

I'm not taking any more mod orders at present, sorry.

As a communal dry area you mean? That might be useful Neil. At very least we should think about a decent sized / decent weight gazebo or something. I'm sure we'd all chuck in for any extra pitch fee.

And tables  ::) I always forget tables and chairs!

The end wall is 2.4m wide.  So it not huge but you can walk in it and set up a table and chairs in there.  There's two separate sleeping pods off the side as well, so if someone doesn't have a tent they can use one of those.

 



If anyone has a bigger one then all the better :tu:

I can also bring one of these...



Cheap and nasty but so long as you're not over 95Kg it should survive :)

 :-\ Hmmm. I was thinking beer storage....

That looks a good idea mate - bring it along!

That provokes a thought actually. Car sharing.

I'm not sure if it makes sense to car-share this time Neil - what do you reckon?

EDIT: Scratch that. It makes perfect sense! Same again Neil?

Its about an hour to you and about two to the venue so from that perspective it probably is.  However it could be tricky with kit space if I've got the big tent with me.

From all reports, that would be about the size of a 2 man backpacking tent... ::)

Paul, that is the closest, and probably will ever be the closest meet to you. Gareth comes from Scotland so the Midlands is about as fair as we can make it.  It's a right laugh so make it if you can.  :)

I was thinking the same thing about a large gazebo/tent just in case it starts peeing it down.  It also adds some necessary cover from any passers by.

Mike, we good to nab your tent again this time? (remember it all this time please  :rofl:)

I'm back!!

Nice one Dave.  I'll go scrounge together some PP.  :tu:

Try not to be the person who blunders around and causes everyone else to get out the way.  Everyone else thinks you're a utter...

Hmm, guess we don't want Greenpeace on our backs again.

 Let's think, all in the course of one evening we had pollution of the waterways, violation of the clean air bill and to top it off causing navigational issues for several pods of whales  ::)

Man's an environmental liability :D
