    Two years ago we joined an informal New Year Rally in Butley Village Hall with some local tuggers and a handful of Funsters and I think a good time was had by all. :Wink:

    We are looking at running it again this this year from Tuesday 30th December to Sunday 4th January, but since the hall has been partially refurbished, costs have increased and the the whole thing will be about £50 including camping and use of the hall throughout, plus all entertainment. The break-even point is therefore about 15 units after which the cost will drop.

    If you are interested, please post here, or PM us. If we can get to the 15 definitely interested, it will run. A small deposit will be requested later in the summer as we will have to pay a deposit to the hall and the NYE entertainment.

    The hall has had the kitchen completely refitted, is now better insulated and heated, and double gazing has been installed, so we will should not need the vacuum squeegees this year. :BigGrin:

    Best wishes ...... Robin

    I'll have to check on the EHU situation. :Doh: Will report back.

    No activities firmed up yet except for NYE itself. We want to see if its likely to be a runner, before planning too much detail. Thanks for all the responses so far.

    Re EHU. There are two spare electric points, but it will add £10 to the rally cost as that's what they have to pay for them. It's possible you might lose it for short periods during the day to allow others to recharge batteries given the time of year.

    If Rob1Chelse1 and TeddyBard are still interested and want me to book them, please let us know.

    Thanks .... Robin

    Just to advise, that we've not forgotten this. Hoping that the decision to go or not go will be in the next week or so.

    Anyone else 'interested'?

    Best wishes ... Robin

    Hi all. Apologies for the long silence. Entirely my fault! The working 'less hours' hasn't worked out and I'm busier than ever. Good for income, but pants for getting other things done! :(

    Yes this is now definite. Attendees are asked to send a £20 deposit to the main organiser Stephen Harper who is possibly best reached by asking him to be your friend at https://www.facebook.com/stephen.harper.9849 or if you message us, I will forward. Stephen has now set up a private Facebook Group that you will be invited to once confirmed. We currently have about 15 units very interested with I think nine who have paid the deposit.

    The FB group is so that more details can be shared and to allow people to put forward any questions and or ideas for activities.

    We'll be at Malvern if anyone has any questions or just wants a chat about Silly Suffolk and the fools that live here! (y)
