As those lucky settlers are going to be getting packed up and ready for the off over the weekend, we ought to get the arrangements for the Forum Meet confirmed.
As ever we call on users of this forum old and new, and any other waifs and strays they can round up, to meet up on Thursday evening for a drink and a chat to kick things off.
In time-honoured tradition, it'll be a relaxed and informal affair, and a great way for newcomers to pick up a few tips and meet a few friendly faces that you’re likely to bump into from time to time over the weekend.
Just pop by and say a quick hello, or stay chatting into the evening ... whatever suits. There’s no pressure or expectation whatsoever.
All are very welcome and we usually have a diverse bunch of young'uns, old'uns, families, friends, solo travelers, teetotalers, alcoholics, mosh pit maniacs, twee twisters, glitter babes (biodegradable of course), and the terminally confused (that's me).
Dress code is a green t-shirt/top if you have one, purely to aid identification of the group. The infamous 'All Night Disco Wrecked My Weekend' thread may be long dead, but we strive to keep its memory alive so if you see anyone wearing the t-shirt in the link below you’re certainly in the right place.
So WHERE and WHEN?
It looks like it's going to busier then ever on the Thursday evening with both Far Out and Walled Garden stages open, but the Walled Garden bar is probably the easier place to meet and find a little corner for our bunch.
I suggest we go for outside the WALLED GARDEN CIDER BAR (assuming it's in the same place this year). Consumpton of the lunatic juice is not essential .. other beverages are available.
As there's a lot happening later let's go for a start time of 5pm, but don't worry if you're not set-up and roaming the site by then as we’ll be there for a few hours - so just pop along when you can.
Anyone using Twitter - follow @ANDWMW for any last-minute updates.
Can't wait to see you all there!
