    Devon Christmas/Winter Camp Saturday 10th December

    Ok, the three amigos that are myself, Orinoco and Bazzer, invite those hardy/foolish enough to attend a winter camp on Saturday the 10th of December.
    The event's at Hennock, Devon, which is to the East of Bovey Tracey.
    The campsite's basic, but has hot showers, flushing toilets and firepits. Cost is a fiver per person, per night. I'm organising this for the one night, but if people would like to arrive Friday and be taken on a rideout, I can organise/lead, but need to know who'd like this option so I can book mysef in accordingly.
    A short stroll from the site is a great pub (I believe there are three B&B rooms), that serves nice food and a superb pint of Jail Ale.
    I shall initially book a table for four (the three amigos and possibly Sandy), under my name and the UKGSer group. If you're coming please book with the site direct - speak to Kate - and book yourself a spot in the pub (The Palk Arms - speak to Jane) and they will then know how many are coming to join the group and whether they'll be able to sit us all at the same table or group us in the same area in the pub. Try not to leave it to the last minute as, due to being on the run up to Christmas, the pub may end up fully booked.
    Please ensure you post on here and/or the FB Page to let me know if you're coming and for how many nights and if you'd like a rideout.

    Oh, and the pub will do cooked breakfast for the hardy campers in the mornings, if required. Ask Jane for more info.

    It's a great site, overall gently sloping with some flatter bits. I did a ride by earlier this year and it looked good and was busy/popular. You'll be fine taking the road of your choice to get to the site on your bike, but for any one in a tin box, follow the site's instructions and drive up from Chudleigh Knighton.

    Paul Wong aka PWCymru is the latest confirmed attendee.

    Sadly can't make that weekend, real shame as it's not far from me. Hope you have a great weekend and that the sun shines on you.

    Great to see there are some hardy GSer's still out there, and it will be good to see one or two new faces.
    C'mon Tim, you're almost there. I'm going to the pub later this week in order to confirm the maximum number they can cater for, and possibly a spot of lunch, will report back.

    Rich - rather than us all ask Jane, would you ask about the hardy breakfast (or breakfast for the hardy?!) - i'm in for that - unless you're cooking for the masses on your log burner?!

    Like I said, if there's going to be a few there on the Friday, i'll camp as well. Please book your breakfasts and dinners with the pub, but let them know you're with the UKGSer group, so they know how many are coming and can try to keep us as a group in the pub.
    I'd also appreciate a heads up if you have a confirmed booking at the pub for the Saturday, so I know who's coming.

    If you're a possible and can't commit at this earlyish date, that's fine, but please understand if this becomes over booked, you'll be fine coming for the camp, but you might not be able to get a meal in the pub. That said, it's a shortish jaunt down to Bovey for some takeout or a pub meal, then whiz back up for a pint or two.
