Our official allocation (25 slots) is fully booked, no cancellations. But I spoke to the site last week and they said to contact them direct if you want a hard standing pitch. It's on a lower tier than the 25 pitches we have booked, but not far away.

Thanks Ian

What pitches are your 25 in ( a01 etc), as there is a number of grass with electric and hard standing so would choose the closer one

Thanks

Even though it was a wet , windy and muddy Bongo Fury meet-up. It was made all the better ( bearable for my surffering wife with 2 kids (3 years and 9 months) in tow) by the help from Ian and Carol as I looked confused at my new Kyham 5000 awaning , maybe a bit big for 2 nights???

Thanks for the good chat from Barry, Mel, Ed, Darren and the ladies Libby , Sam ,Anne ... Too many to recall)

Weather pendant silerdale and tackeroo will be call before we hang up the overnighters till spring.

A great intro to the world of the bongo ( if not a bit bogy).

Thanks for the kind welcome.

Your

Good end of year meet. Both Pat and I thoroughly enjoyed it. Thanks to Bongo Central for organising. Also thanks to all who helped me unbog. Serves me right for not having a bongo.
