    I am really sorry folks.. First off the site was double booked.. Looked at the earlier date and for various reasons that was simply not a viable option ( thought it would be but no .. all sorts of issues including inconveniencing other members on here )

    Tried several other venues and all are either booked already or are not exactly welcoming..

    I have no real choice but to pull the plug for 2014..

    Sorry to let folk down :xm

    you could try a site in Devon:RollEyes::RollEyes::RollEyes: or even take over the August rally here.

    Yer right.... oh.. hang on.. I meant the other thing.. :RollEyes:
    Unless you can arrange all the stuff to be shipped by small lorry down there ( for free of course ! ), arrange a cheap bar, and the site cannot charge more than £10 per head for a stay of up to 7 days ( so about £1.40 a night )

    Gosh, now we'll have to go further afield for our first official bash.
    Probably down some of those way too narrow roads.

    Just a thought John, has anybody contacted the Canine cronies to see if they'd be willing to swop dates? :Smile:

    Sorry news indeed, John.
    There is no doubt you pulled all the stops out, just not meant to be this spring.
    Thanks for trying.
    Put us down for whenever, be that later this year or next year.
