    Just to let you all know that we'll be having a winter Moot in Febuary of next year (2019)

    We'll get up more details in a short while, this is what we have for now.

    WinterMoot
    Date - Febuary 18-24th 2019
    Location - Merthyr Mawr, South Wales (Same location as the Summer Moot)

    The Winter Moot is a new event that we've introduced to give you the opportunity to camp during the winter amongst friends and for us to share our knowledge and learn from each other.

    We would like this Moot will focus on cooking and staying warm. Please note that this is not instructor lead but rather a knowledge sharing social event allowing us to share ideas, food, show each other skills ranging from fire lighting to dutch oven cooking etc. All in a relaxed location and atmosphere where we can do as much or as little as we want.

    Everyone will be able to come and camp, use the facilities etc. We'll make sure there's firewood available. some people will want to come for the week and others just for a few days or the weekend.

    Yet another thing I have to stay alive for. Still plenty of time to plan.

    Great to see this being planned already.

    We should get a deer.

    A wild boar would be nice.

    The problem is we don't have a 2019 calendar yet that I can sneak the date onto :(
    I've never been to a moot - I really should try and make the effort.

    We'll make sure there's plenty of firewood, I figure there will be less people that the big summer moot so the same amount of wood should work. I think we'll also keep the camping area smaller and more orientated around the main area and a good evening fire will probably be good as a social area.

    We'll make sure there's a throwing spike area as well :)

    A WinterMoot is a lot easier for me to get to than the summer meet

    doubt I'd manage the 2019 winter moot, but if it's still on the menu in 2020, I'd be very interested in honing winter skills :)

    I'm hoping that it becomes a regular Moot so we should have a 2020 one, umm, sounds like it should be a special one with a date like that
