Self sufficientish ers meet up - get brewing

Ok, so we are still trying to decide where abouts and when to meet up. How about we say in about 6 weeks time, that is enough time to ferment some ales to bring along.

I think that the north midland is going to be the easiest place to get to for all of us in the UK. Is this right? So Nottinghamshire sounds like a plan.

Who is with me on this?

I'm hoping to be in Bristol in June... got an appointment for J to see the specialist at Frenchay in April but trying to change it til June 10th or that weekend as there is a CLAPA fundraising barbecue...

I don't suppose June would be a goer???

Well if you are going to be in Bristol then at me you and Dave could meet up :lol: Actually there is nothing to say that we cannot have more than one meet up.

I think that weekends work best for all around so yes indeed.

We'll be there - and potentially can put people up in the caravan... Shirlz? It's 6 birth so plenty of room. Let us know the date asap?

A bit of a long way from Dorset, I'm afraid. This summer will be tight for me since Toni is having an operation in June - but perhaps when we're over that we could think about a SW Ishmeet.

Anything in May or June SHOULD be ok with me - but there's always the chance of work committments that I can't get out of... So the sooner I know the date, the better. I'm booked for the Royal Show in Edinburgh, for example, just a couple of days in June.

There's a lady in our LETS who has (according to the directory) an Eco camp in Appley (near Wellington, Somerset) she charges 5Tones/£5 per night- I could explore that if you want- I've got 40 Tones at the moment so if I had an idea how many would be interested I'd be willing to donate those to the cause- which would take the cost down a notch, and it would give us a chance to try our new tent out within dashing distance back home!

I have already started a 5 gallon bucket of Ale!

Ere Andy, Hedgy and Shirlz,

I expect Tracey and me could make it to Bristol for a mini get together. Keep us posted!

Anybody been having any more thoughts about this? Let's not forget about it! If we can't agree on one meeting for all, maybe we can have a few smaller get-togethers!
