All would be well if if if if say the green bells of Cardiff.

Actually I was disappointed by Piggy on Sat in that there was pretty well nothing I wanted to listen to all day - too much contemporary, americana and dippy-trippy - for my taste. Perhaps it suited others better. But it was an extreme set of circumstances and I have suggested instituting a "balance" policy about the types of music on the PA rig. We shall see...

Rachel and Sam will not be coming to Knockers - they will be bigging it with Sam's fams.

HELP !!!

All of my spanking new camping stuff has now arrived, including a campingaz bistro burner, but I've a problem tracking down butane gas cartridges size CP250 or anything compatible. I thought I would get them locally, but ALL argos stores (10 nearest) are out of stock (summer festival season)and Milletts in Eltham have closed down - is that camping supply shop near Knockholt still trading? Anybody got any pointers?

The caravan shop near Knockers is long gone. PC plod said they were ringing stolen vans.

Three sellers of CP250 on ebay. 3598 on amazon and if you use a mudcat link mudcat gets a commission.

Camping International have the Sungas equivalent at £7.99 for 4 but will not post them. Their phone number is 01634 577 326 and they are only a few miles from me.

We collected £25.50 towards funds on Sunday which I will give to Sue. Thanks for coming to the BBQ, it was a brilliant afternoon. Woodsie, where were you?
I also seem to have aquired 1 cooking pot, i small sharp knife, and a beer mug, all of which I think belongs to Pete. I will bring them to Knockholt unless you require them earlier, but you will have to come and collect them.

Panic over I managed to get a pack of 4 gas cartridges. Funny Sunday Argos online say "out of stock at 9 stores and only 1 left at Bexleyheath" then yesterday Argos online said "Out of stock at all 10 nearest stores" Checked again today and it said "only 3 left" at Eltham! I rushed up there and bagged mine! So thanks to all the offers of help but there is no need to bring any extras with you - but thanks anyway it's good to know that they would have been there for me if needed. Really looking forward to tomorrow - a word of advice when driving into the field, make quite a wide arc when tuning right keeping well away from the area on your immediate right closer to the road/hedgerow as this is the area that can get boggy after heavy rain - but hopefully we've seen the last of that ...

Now back home. I managed 2 nights and got completely soaked through . The grass in the field hasn't been cut or grazed and is up to 12" long so even when it stopped raining and the sun came out briefly your feet and legs got a soaking just walking a few yards. If you are tempted to brave the weather, It's more suitable for campervans and caravans. Tents should be very, very sturdy with a porch area and really tough strong pegs hammered well in. The wind is blowing like crazy and last night I was concerned for my safety the way the nearby trees were bending. My crappy little tent was not suitable for this I thought I was gonna take off! but being a fat bastard and the additional ballast from the small lake in the middle of the tent I survived! Oh yrs and bring WELLIES, several towels and plenty of changes of footwear/socks - I got through 6 soaked pairs yesterday! I'm aching all over ...

Independent Knockholt was very good fun again - with quite a lot of hangovers but not including me! All logs were personhandleable - just.

There is some damage to the marquee which blew away twice - half a dozen joint pieces and some slightly bent poles. Mick will have a word with the makers to see what repair costs might be and I will be researching awning straps or lorry strops to tie it down with. It is a useful facility for the feast and/or singing if it rains.

Subject to marquee costs we covered costs (probably - not all figures are 100% certain yet) and everyone took their own rubbish away so saving the cost of a skip. Up to my time of leaving today there were no field entry/departure mishaps or disasters - it being slippery rather than deep mud.

A point raised was whether we should offer to lay a 1 tonne bag of shingle or gravel in the firepit - to make the safe-tea-elf less worried about people falling over into the fire. This is probably up to the farmer.

Subject to such expenses we broke even leaving a small surplus and enough money to defray Mick's petrol costs for taking the marquee away to storage. The funds collected over the winter by Linda and me are so far untouched, so I will now look into opening a post office account to put them in - possible applications being (1) marquee repairs (2) gravel (3) tough trestle table for feast (4) subsidy for September.

The working party will be considering whether, in the case of (4), what charges if any should be reduced. A delicate balancing act is how many loos to order for September particularly since a sun-drenched event is overdue!

Sorry I couldn't make it but the high winds put paid to me towing the van up there on Friday. We were intending to come down for the Saturday evening, but I'd been dancing all day and after reading Woodsies description of the field Alan was loath to take his car on the site. We'd prepared all the food and loaded up with chairs and tables etc.

Woodsie was exaggerating. And even Emily got her car on and offsite.

I certainly was not exaggerating in my description of the two nights Weds & Thurs and I did not say that the ground was unsuitable for bringing cars onto the site. I DID say it was more suited to caravans and camper vans and that tents needed to be sturdy. When challenged about the grass being UP to 12" long I pulled a blade up right by my chair and it was 15". I and all my gear did get thoroughly soaked. Remember I was CAMPING in a tent not in a nice dry caravan.
