    Hi Will

    I'll plump for the 28th, but I will probably be able to attend on either date.

    Cheers

    when it looks like and overwhemling majority:rolleyes: have gone for the 28th of March, so the 128th it is.

    hopefully should turn out to be a nice relaxing paddle and camp.

    Just need to know rough numbers of who will be tipping up.
    So a list:

    Put me down as a possible - depending on work / where I am / whether I've got transport as all 3 of our company pool cars are currently in the garage for repairs :rolleyes:

    http://www.igreens.org.uk/canoeing_the_wye.htm << lists legit camp sites on the wye

    http://www.wyevalleycanoes.co.uk/ << canoe hire in glasbury may be a little high up if wer starting around hereford

    http://www.ordnancesurvey.co.uk/oswebsite/getamap/ <<<<<< this is a really good map link click on the big pink button click on wales/builthwels/lower right is hay on why you can follow the river corse all the way to the sea

    just a thought......... if we do start in hay on wye the canoe hire place ive listed above ^ is only 5 miles from hay about 1hr 30 mins on the river so would be an ideal place to rent from.
    they may even drop it off in hay for you, but i suggest you familliarise yourself with it on the way down to hay if your not used to canoeing its a gentle section with only 2 or 3 parts where the water actually moves you more than 1-2 miles per hour
    the cap park in hay will take 25 cars or so and should be realetivley empty in march i woudnt suggest leaving your car there however, it is after all a town center more or less.
    anyone needing a lift from abergavenny train station let me know,or some place to leave a car (but only if you have a space in some one elses canoe or are renting as i cant transport 2 canoes at once)
    anything else i can do to help let me know guys and gals went with 4 other ppl last time and it was fun im hopeing its more the merry,r so make an effort and ill do all i can to help
    oo no longer a tenderfoot woot me !!!
