Who's going and what day? I'm not sure Sunday or Monday yet - last year I left it a bit late but then it was tipping it down!

Nothing much yet on the weather, met office says:

Quote:
UK Outlook for Friday 1 May 2009 to Sunday 10 May 2009:

Initially we are expecting unsettled conditions across the United Kingdom with locally heavy outbreaks of rain, although by the Bank Holiday weekend this rain is likely to have become confined to northwestern areas as drier, brighter conditions spread across southern and eastern parts. Then as we move through the second week it looks likely that the weather will be mainly dry and settled at first, but tending to become less settled later with an increasing risk of showers or outbreaks of rain turning up. Initially the afternoon temperatures will probably be near normal for the time of year. However they may well become a bit warmer than average over the Bank Holiday weekend, but rather cool overnight.

We hope to be there Sunday afternoon and possibly Monday morning as we are making a weekend of it and staying in a local B&B on Sunday night.

I just hope we don't have to use my new hood and windscreen wipers too much?

Hopefully it will be a big turnout as it is the Marlin's 30th anniversary

We are also staying locally in the camper. Perhaps we can have a beer Sunday evening?

Hi Robin,
did you mean the MOC site area? Marlin are not exhibiting this year.

Yes - that was what I meant. Not sure we would be all welcome on the Marlin stand (If it was there.....)
