Getting Started

Competitors setting up under low grey skies, no rain on the radar, gentle breeze from the East.
All set to go.


Wind forecast now much lower for the morning getting stronger in the afternoon, Sunday should be quite low breeze but still saying showers.
Has been about 6mm rain overnight so wet underfoot for sure.
Will blog from the field.

Another Field?

Well another site has been discovered for possible purchase!
I haven't seen it yet, but by all accounts it's excellent.
Just a little bit closer to town than the last attempt.
Fingers crossed.
