Hi Dave,

I have booked up to go. If the forecast is total cloud cover for the entire time then I probably wont make the 4 hour+ drive. I've booked to be there wed to Sat night. We will have to meet up again if both make it.

All the best
Jack

Hi Jack/Gary,
Yes let's hope the weather is kind to us.
We will be in the top field. Was hoping for a "hard" pitch but these will all be taken when we get there (Thurs to Sun.) One of the party I will be with lives around those parts and he had a trip to the site a couple of weeks ago and he told me that the conditions are already "October-ish" so it looks like it could be a bit muddy :)
Will look out for you guys.
All the best
Dave
