Think it's August 28th - 30th

So camp over Friday night 28th and Sat 29th possible.

If I get to it it'll be possibly Saturday over to Sunday.

I can't make it, I'm in France, so I'm looking for a volunteer to sell as many of our GSF vouchers raffle tickets there as they can. Then we'll draw it shortly after Stratford.

Not bad James, possibly half the size of the National (well a normal national as this years was a poor turnout). Historically a few spares. concourse event, and alot of people camp over.

I was at last year's Stratford and had a good time but I was only there for the Sunday so don't have a complete picture of the whole thing.

I might be able to make this one although my insurance runs out on the 5th, and I'm not renewing which could be a [big] problem!

This is the big event of the year for people in the know. There will be a considerably bigger group of BXers socialising at the event, typically just look for the small marquee away from everyone else (and probably a Ford focus) or follow the noise.


PS i suggest you camp well away from the rabble if you expect to sleep. The year before last we started changing spheres on the back of my car at 2am, didn't quieten down till 4am, and somewhere in between test drove a HVan with a bull horn on!!

and a tatty black P2 valver with dead cow seats, where nearby will be a pissed doc hitting stuff with hammers.
Smokes lots, because enough's enough already!

Far too many BX's, a bus, an ambulance a few trucks, not enough time and never enough cash...
