Family-friendly camping meet - summer 2014

May bank holiday saw a number of duffers attend a camping meet at Rydal Hall in the heart of the Lake District (thanks to Niall for organising). We trust everyone had fun! The original details are below, for anyone who wants to know what they missed...

A Lakeland camping trip for everyone, whether you are two years old and will happily spend a whole day exploring a rock pool, or a student with too much energy wanting to tick off several tens of HuMPs in one go.

This will be based at Rydal Hall, from Friday May 23rd 2014. We would expect most people to arrive on Friday 23rd, some on Sat 24th. Some people would leave Sunday or Monday, others stay through to Wednesday or Thursday. (If you wish to stay beyond this you may be asked to move your tent.)

We're provisionally booked on sites C8-12 (see map) and we need to confirm the booking, with a deposit, by mid-November.

If you'd like to come, please let Niall (niall.mackay at know, with numbers (adults+children) and which nights you want to stay.

Please also send a deposit (£40 total per family or £20 per person). Contact Niall for bank transfer details or an address to send a cheque to.

You can also book directly with Rydal Hall closer to the time, but are not guaranteed a space near us.
