TLB Winter Camp 2022 - very sarf.

Discussion in 'Shows Events' started by mikedjames, Sep 12, 2021.

  1. A chat at Techenders seemed to show there might be some interest in reinstating the TLB Winter Camp - to sort of replace the yawning chasm in our lives brought about by the end of Dubfreese.

    As a starter, I have just emailed the Fort Purbrook people at Portsmouth to see if it would be possible there , as that was where the event used to take place back as late as 2013.

    If you are interested, or can think of somewhere better (like the shed in Stafford showground where TLB hid on a wet and windy night on the last Dubfreeze ), comment here.

    I'd be up for that :)
  5. Somewhere more central than Portsmouth might work better!
    Do miss a wet cold weekend in February though!

    it’s central to the south coast ;)
  7. Went to a couple of winter campers was a good laugh. Nice and windy up on the fort and a bit chilly when there’s snow on the ground and your Propex decides to pack up
  8. I'm out...:hattip:

    Change the title to Southern winter camp?
    It's a 500 mile round trip from here... not that I'd go camping in the winter even if it was 10 miles away!
  13. What's the facilities like there? I'd imagine anyone without a decent gas set-up would freeze to death?
  14. I agree, I like to think I'm a happy camper, but I prefer the sunshine. Besides, I can drive 14 miles to the east coast to get a face peel and frozen toes, for a lot less fuel ;) and just as nice views too :)

    I always used to think it looked very bleak in the pictures. Not sure I’m up for that sort of journey.

    The saturday night at Dubfreeze was great, roaring fire and a good laugh with a beer or two, brilliant!

    If it was more central I'd be up for a get together.

  18. With the Slough swap meet due in late November, could these be combined in the Newbury area?
