I no longer have to check with anyone, so providing I get my act together, I will also be there.

Yes, campsite 2wd capable. Wild camping type - long-drop bog, no showers. Basically a field 5 mins walk from a great pub.

Hi Rob,

As it's an official Syncronauts event we'll be taking registration and payment via the website at some point, like we do for Syncropendence.
Coming soon, as they say.

Poop. Overlooked this one. Would love to make it but the mem'sahib has got to the diary before me and there's a family gathering booked. I should be saving the pennies for the tribal continental assault in August anyway.
I'm sure there's something else...







Oh yes it's our 16th Anniversary on the 4th too :-D

He replies
"Why don't you just stop shaving?"

Does anyone bring their kids along to these events? I usually have my son over on the weekends, and was planning on him coming with me, but he's a bit wary - the usual "there won't be anyone I know" routine. So I just wondered if anyone else bring their kids with them. Is it suitable for young teenagers? I would have thought so, but what does everyone else think?

Also, when are the venue details to be announced?
