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.

Any nationwide plans for Friday 08-May-2020 - 3 day long weekend?
Just been reading that it is the Bongo Silver Jubilee - is that right?
Also May Bank Holiday and 75th anniversary of VE Day.
Worth a few mini-meets I would have thought!
Thoughts?

Would it be worth posting on the FB groups with a comment about membership requirements ?

It's on my things-to-do list. But I'll wait until Scotland and Summer Camp are confirmed.
