Title: Newent 2016
Post by: TheBoy on 14 April 2016, 20:14:47
Any genuine interest?

If so, any volunteers to organise it, as I won't be around on the usual weekend.

Well, I guess there is potentially the option to use another weekend if a certain semi-retired gentleman was keen to arrange it (though suspect owner will want it outside school holiday periods) ;) :P

I'd be there as normal,

but do have time issues arranging unfortunately.

I've got a lot on this summer, including a fair bit of organising, so definitely wouldn't be very effective at organising this year's Newent.

And I can't make the normal weekend anyway.

Date dependent, I might be able to make other dates, though fast running out of weekends, if somebody is prepared to pick up the baton and sort it...   ...it's really just sorting an initial date with the owner, keeping her informed, and ensuring she gets the dough :)

Seemed strange not to have it this year, even if it would have been a struggle.... :-\ :'(

Yes, it was a shame. However, as with me having to cancel the High Wycombe meet, circumstances dictate.
Lets hope next year we can get both meets running as normal :y

TBH, there's no way I could have made Newent this year anyway but it's odd not to have the pictures and the boost in activity it brings

I was out of the country on the "usual" date, and nobody else seemed keen on organising it, so it never happened  :(

Perhaps we should meet in East Anglia then... We've had loads of good weather and very little rain
