Re: Meetings in 2020

Tough Northerners meeting in March will not now take place at West Stockwith as site does not have enough electric hook ups. We are seeking an alternative venue.

Re: Passing of a friend, Alant54

I've just got off the phone from Dee. She's bearing up OK given the circumstances, and we shared a few funny moments from Alan's colourful past. I will post here details of funeral etc as soon as they are received.

We will miss you, Alan.

Sorry it's sold out. But you should be able to get pitches direct with the site.

Charity Auction: Chrome Mirror Covers

Ben Bruce (“2Sticks” here on the Forum) was the club’s unofficial video-man until his untimely death a couple of years ago. He was also keen on keeping his Bongo in tip-top condition and recently his wife Pat discovered a pair of unused genuine Mazda chrome mirror covers. She has instructed us to au...

Re: Bongo Fest South West 12th to 16th September

Crabbing competition. Jayne Newsome (crabber of the year 2018) can't make it this year. Nor can Baz who normally organizes this. And nor can I as going to Polperro on the Saturday.

I have the trophy, and I have this year's prizes. All we need now is someone to organize it. Any volunteers?

Re: Bongo Fest South West 12th to 16th September

Have now returned 20 pitches to the campsite. We have just 4 places left to fill. As to future years, I have already booked Camping Caradon for 2020 but have reduced it to 55 electric and 5 non-electric pitches. I would be interested in hearing suggestions for 2021 perhaps on the North Devon coast a...
