I'm playing bicycles at Castle Combe Sunday, but can probably make the Saturday.
Am I right in thinking that it's the bank holiday weekend?
I thought that was the following weekend, but I could be wrong

I suppose that now that we have a date and location we could probably work out who's doing what;

copy and paste the list below, adding your name where you want


Teaching the newbies


Being a newbie


Other please say what

Catsinthewelder, I'll probably give mine a service between running round (will teach the newbies if nobody else will)

I'll just lean against something substantial and get drunk, it's what I do.. Car repairs should be done at 2 in the morning after 20 pints!

Or, ya know, I'll lend a hand and teach some swear words or such!
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...

Yep me too! And i'll be joining in on the loitering and drunk scene, I can rival Paul's casualty in leaning and posing if I really don't try hard.

Cheers DW, If we can show a few peeps how to keep thier cars in decent fettle without injuring themselves than I reckon we'll have done pretty well

Starting to wonder about food, Ms C is doing something for the food festival a couple of weeks later and has cut a deal with a local butcher and a baker to supply that. She has offered to sort something out for this weekend for about £10 a head to do breakfast on the Sat + Sun, a buffet lunch on Sat and stuff to chuck on a BBQ on Sat night. Anyone interested? Anyone got a BBQ they could bring?

We thought it'd be easier just to get takeaways on the Friday night as we'll all be turning up at different times. Don't panic if you want to self cater, thats entirely fine.

I think I should probably be self catering as I am one of those annoying veggie types. Also I have no idea if I am coming alone or bringing my eldest son to learn a bit of mechanical stuff too. I can bring cake to share though, cake is my speciality. :D

I was planning on visiting a chippie etc on the way up or when I got there. Convoy to takeaway??

I don't think I can commit to the entire weekend, so not sure when I'll be arriving yet. The food kitty plan sounds pretty reasonable though! I should self-cater but I'm lazy.

Not sure if I qualify for that, but I'd like to come along. I can't commit to anything yet as holiday plans (which revolve around getting someone to look after the animals) have yet to be decided and may clash. If I make it I'll try and help the newbies. Will there be mains electricity and cover available, or is it just a field?

I'd be tempted to pop to De Greys for lunch at some point too; it would be rude not to!
