    Well, lots of choice there Roger. Hopefully someone will come forward. The thing is that if the weather is good there is nothing needed other than a minibus to the beaches and collection ... we thoroughly enjoyed our days out last year .... Also there were good eating places too.

    Maybe Howie and Kath may be interested in some kind of dog show .. just a suggestion... they may be totally busy with their dog shows elsewhere...

    can you manage that without power?
    space and noise not a problem as no houses nearby

    I think the lack of power would make for a really civilised music festival. Wildman unplugged!

    We have a lot of musicians on here now and I'm sure there are some damn fine singers amongst us :)

    Can we build a big campfire and sit on hay bales? :)

    Campfire could be a problem as it destroys the grazing for several years but we have a large marquee, hay bales possible (if there are any left come a rally) as long as someone can heave them about.
    there are two golf courses and a driving range. For fishing there is lots of coastline, beaches and charter boats, plus trout lakes not too far away people attending other rallies have fished.

    Have played one of the courses at Ilfracombe - Denise had trouble with the first hole and the one over the ravine, LOL!

    I'd love a southern fix it meet. I'm sure that I could find a few things that need attention on my van!

    I'm sure you could get things fixed at any meet we have here, it seems to be the norm, even for people staying on the CL. I do have extensive workshop facilities. WE had one last year

    How about some peace and quiet and relaxing with friends?

    Just thinking about all these "activities" makes my head hurt...

    No no no no no. Hay bales are highly combustible, to put them in close proximity to an ignition source would be highly dangerous.

    If you build a campfire knowing that there will be alcohol consumed nearby you must surround it with a fireproof guard that would stop a drunken person falling into the fire. You should have adequate fire extinguishing equipment located nearby, a number of people must be trained in the operation of this equipment.

    Then you can sit safely on sturdy metal camping chairs singing to your hearts content but not so loud as to annoy the neighbours and fellow campers who may have gone to bed early.

    Remember medical advice and do not consume more than the recommended amount.

    Failing all that .... the pub is just hundred yards up the road .. LARGE pub ... could they not provide a room for a musical extravaganza one night .. think of the revenue they would get on drinks...... That way if it rains it can still go ahead and the bomfire nights singalongs could be an extra for the other nights.
