Looking good so far, Bore Booked "not the best forecast".
Frampton fair going ahead.
Skittles sorted.
Chip butties sorted.
Need games for field.
Bringing jewellery making bits.
We will need to order Sunday lunch with pub if required as they do get busy.
Always be ready for a Top Up!

Bore looks better on Tuesday evening but might be a bit hard to see :-)
Minsterworth 10.12pm, Stonebench 10.27pm & Over Bridge 10.47pm**** its a 4-Star one!

Presumably we can book Sunday lunch on arrival ?

I can bring quoits and a croquet(or karaoke as my grandson calls it) set. Both child sized but still fun, for the games field.
Seems to be turning into quite a meet.

I've never sung the 'Panda Song' while trying to get a ring on a stick or balls through a hoop. 8)

Hi Barry,

Sorry, no Boules set. Used to have one, seems to have disappeared!

Agree with Fatcat.

Good week-end. Saw the Bore Sunday morning with 5 surfers making the most of it.

Thanks Baz for arranging and for the good company of all those that attended.

Indeed an excellent little meet, I'm still mobile heading towards Looe, but found time to upload some pictures of the Bore so here are the links for both activities over the weekend;
