Err - heavy showers Saturday and Sunday still, and that's the met office? Where you getting your weather reports from?

Will be keeping an eye on the weather forecast and making a decision on Sunday morning.
Don't fancy a repeat of the first time I went to the Pod with the OC.
Some folk spent hours in the queue for RWYB and never got on the strip.
A 90 minute trip to a wet and windy ex-RAF base is not my idea of a fun day out tbh.

Met Office is now showing light showers :th:

Stunning here in Northampton at the moment though

OK, went and saw Chris last night. I now have the sails and the gazebo ready. I am picking up a genny tomorrow evening but I am going to need a hand with a few things...

I am bringing

1. Gazebo
2. Sails
3. Genny
4. 1 Can of Unleaded
5. Speakers
6. Amp
7. Mixing Stuff (For tunes)
8. Lights

Plus all my grub/drink/sleep stuff

We will still need

1. Another Can of Unleaded
2. Pasting table (Or similar)
3. Another Gazebo (Possibly)

So, I have bought, rented, covered a majority of the stuff - need some Saturday peeps to chip in :th:

Made a decision...

With the very real possibility of showers this weekend combined with the lack of a table, I won't pick up the genny tomorrow...

So, all we need is some battery lighting to hang in the gazebo for the later hours.

I think, considering the weather, it would be a waste of time and money :no:

the weather has improved since yesterday now only light showers for a few hours over the weekend.

I'll be there on Sunday as long as funds let me now as a unplanned bill came though the door yesterday.

fingers crossed
