Kelling Heath Star Party - Autumn 2015 Roll Call
« on: 14:44:25, 14 August, 2015 »
Less than a month to go to the Autumn Kelling event and I think there are a fair few of us going to be there  :big_clap:

The UKAI gang have had to move due to Kelling tarmacking over some of our pitches so we are on Yellow Field around pitch 166 (we will have the UKAI sky flag flying and there is bound to be some Pink Floyd playing too). Thats the new bit of the yellow field near the toilet block towards the red field. We are there Thursday to Sunday

So who else is going to be there and whereabouts are you so we can look you up?

Chris

ps start crossing those fingers for a clear spell, we are surely due one!

I'm on pitch 365 from Thursday to Monday, but as I did last April if the weather is good I might come earlier/stay longer.

No pitch booked for this year, however may pop down to see people again as I did in April. Will look into it and speak to The Long Haired General to see what she wants to do ;)

Hi Rog,

Thank you for the very kind offer, unfortunately the boss has reminded me that we are actually in Sheffield visiting friends that weekend. Doh!!

Filters all cleaned, various batteries charged and the pile of "stuff" in the garage is growing by the day.

Tuesdays not looking too good Rog. Wednesday night looking OK but with the moon rising after midnight, Thursday night possibly a little cloudy and then Friday is looking cracking. Stable High Pressure conditions so forecast is pretty confident.

Excited!

Good stuff,   Although we all know that the weather could change at the drop of a hat.    As long as it's not raining, I still may head up there Tuesday just to get away really.   But help is needed to pitch the tent, it may be a bit big for one person.

Hey Chris,
That's excellent news about the high pressure.
Were coming down early Wednesday morning. So if any off you, fancy meeting up for a pint during the afternoon. Let me know.

I can't wait  :thumbup: :thumbup:
