    A big thanks to Tony, Shelly and all the mods as well as all my friends old and new for making an excellent moot, as short as my visit was!

    I look forward to seeing you all again next year and hope to make the winter moot if it's on!

    Got back from the moot a couple of hours ago. Had a great time despite being rather unwell for several days. Lots of loverly bargains and new skills acquired despite needing a lot of down time. Thanks to everyone for a fab time and those... you know who you are ....who helped me out.
    A short rest.. resupply and repack and off to wilderness next week. See you there.

    Bushmoot newbie here, back from my first core days experience.
    Was unsure what to expect, but was very pleased by the size and organisation of the event. There are some bits of the site I didn’t even get a chance to explore, so I’ll be back next year to finish what I started (maybe I’ll also finish carving a spoon next time, too)!
    It was good to learn new things from instructors and attendees alike, and was nice to meet folks from all backgrounds as well: you’re an eclectic bunch!
    BTW, I was the middle aged beardy bloke in Minecraft creeper camouflaged trousers (actually PenCott WildWood, for those who care).

    Good to meet you all

    Thanks from my end too.

    Dad hada great time; He is not as a rule an outdoors person but the Moot is a good place for him. Chance to relax while still having things to stimulate him.

    We all had a fab time too at our first Moot. Thank you to everyone for making us feel so welcome. Kids all want to come back next year, though one wants to bring a tent instead of hammock?! (Strange child!).

    Another great Moot. Always good to meet up with old friends and meeting new folk.

    I’m looking forward to the winter Moot and next years.

    I can’t wait to see everyone’s craftsmanship in the craft competition.
