    Do you think we should book 2016 dates now - April and September?

  4. Or, dare I say it, find another venue where we can have it on a more suitable date. :eek:
     
  5. Looks like I will miss this one. Ah well.

    probably for next year i'll book aprils and septembers together so we can have a date we want? i know i can't please everyone and august isn't ideal but the september date i got offered didn't suit many either...

    tongue in cheek? i think the place is perfect for us we're never going to agree on all dys.
     
  8. Not really, it's moved a few times before, though I agree Ed's is a very good venue.
     
  9. I've not been around that long so didn't go to any of the older events but I doubt you'll find anywhere as good as eddies + he practically gives us the field. It's the cheapest camp of the year going there.

    They really look after us, respect us as we do them etc. and do a lot of running around, will you get that elsewhere?

    I have to agree - my feeling (and experience is limited and hat duly doffed to techenders vets) is that moving it is fixing the part that isn't broken.

    Not being available to book is the issue that we mitigate by booking earlier - though conversely, as @zed probably alludes to, what's the point of having mobile camping if you aren't in fact mobile with it!?

  11. Wish it was closer.
    A 485 mile round trip is a little too far for me as the only driver. :(
     
  12. Was just saying that anything is possible and it's moved a few times before.
    In reality Ed's is by far the best site it's been at and would be impossible to match.

    I think someone needs to make the point though - ideally, if the things moved about each time it would be closer for some some years, and further way others.

    Eddie's place, and the owners, do make it ideal for the techenders part of camping I agree.

    It wouldn't be the same anywhere other than Eddie's imho.

    the score is Eddy will be alone the weekend we have had, so no breakfast provided it's a bring your own or as you said a while ago "if you aren't working you'd do poptop kitchen" it seems a bit soon to start the official thread of who's coming but due to the early date it won't be long!

    Or the 25th if you will.... (At least we think it is, the count of how many is lost) it will be my 10th I think? I dunno.
