    Hmmm.........That wasn't what it was supposed to be.

    I'll have to go all manual.

    Friday - Thunder Storms
    Saturday - Light Showers

    Right, back from my shower.

    Been giving this some thought.

    I'm not massively in favour of having a marquee as it could end up being the only place people go, and kill the atmosphere. Alternatively it could provide a focus and create a brilliant atmosphere.

    We won't have a fire in the marquee, and this would probably would end up as the focal point, and if there weather is not too bad it probably won't end up being used.

    However.............

    If you are me if I'll chuck in £22 towards it just in case then the answer is yes.

    I'm guessing that this means that the marquee is not viable as it needed everyone to contribure, so will pack my tarp

    Forecast has modified to light rain Friday and Sunny Periods Saturday, so we can reliably plan on monsoon conditions.
