    Hi folks

    Thought I'd start a new thread for general meets in 2009.

    How are people fixed for a get together on the 17th / 18th Jan?

    A chance to show off those new toys and gadgets we're all getting for Chrimbo.

    Location to be decided (depending on mud levels)

    Hope everyone has a good chrimbo and has loads too much to eat and drink.

    :beerchug:

    HI Stewart,

    i'll be able to say yes or no later but arewe going with the idea we had at the last meet about a get together 'Theme'? Just so we have a skill focus for the weekend? Just a thought.

    May i just take this opportunity to wish all the South Wales Posse a Merry Christmas and prosperous New Year, thanks for a great 2008, here's to a fine 2009!:rolleyes:

    Sapper - yes this will be in addition to the Feb meet.

    Jed - Theme for the weekend sounds good - if those attending would like to post any preferences we'll see if we can get a list of skills we would like to practice and then work through the list during the year.

    Its strange but no matter how much I practice I never reach that "expert" stage. I suppose I'll just have to keep practicing.

    How about we start with the basics and do some shelter building?

    great idea.

    im in wanted to get out before christmas but have been limited to just day trips out from other comitments so it would be good to get out before Spences leaving/joining weekend.

    Id like to have a play with fire from friction but using materials foraged for on the site, no bringing 6 monthed seasoned in the airing cupboard floor board :nono:

    happy christmas to you all, cheers for the warm welcome

    Will

    I'm rubbish at it, after four cans I get annoying then two more and I'm snoring.

    I liked the other sort of practise I saw Lloyds lad getting last time we were there ;) :D

    Hi Steve

    Lets see if theres any life left in this one: Sapper / Will are you still up for this one or shall we consign it to history?

    Glad to hear your feeling better Steve, but you better not bring any germs with you.

    Regarding the location - If Jeddadiah is OK with us using the site without him - how about the Cowbridge site but at low level this time.

    Lloyd has said he may join us, his back is playing up at the moment so he'll have to wait and see how he's feeling.

    The bugs won't be a problem as long as you bring plenty of alcohol (for disinfection purposes, obviously :D

    I've not been to Cowbridge yet.. we can make the high/low call dependant on weather - Is Jed not coming then? - I have to see him about a hi-fi ;)

    Would be good to see Lloyd again - I'm sure we can lug his kit between us if need be :)
