    Cornwall June 2018 anyone?

    Posted by Dell and Les on May 13, 2017, 8:20 pm

    Hi all. If I booked the Counthouse near Bosigran in Cornwall for a 5 (or more?) night jolly towards the end of June 2018 how many would be interested? This would be in addition to the monthly weekend meets as I appreciate that some members of the club aren't as old as me and can't swan off mid week. I'm afraid that Kindred clubs (that's us) can't take children to the Counthouse.

              I've previously found April cold but happy for May.

                    Yes interested and I'm sure Alison would be but too far ahead to give a commitment now

                      My reservation isn't about Cornwall in June, but to committing myself to Cornwall in June, given all the other places we might want to be in June...

                        We would be interested in Cornwall in June 2018

                          We haven't been to Cornwall for years and I would like to go. June is a good month to be anywhere and I would be happy to commit to paying for a place just so I have the option of taking it up sometime next year

                            I'm puzzled at what April in Cornwall was too cold for (see Dell's post) we weren't planning to camp were we?

                              When we went to Cornwall one Easter we stayed in a farmhouse which was fne but the weather was cold. It's April .... Personally I'd rather go when the chances are it will be a bit warmer.

                                I'm quite happy to book a club trip whenever a group decides they would like to go. We'll go at another time maybe.

                                  If you wait until the group decides when they would like to go then you should make a booking for an early date in the next millennium but one. Or possibly the one after that. We may reach a consensus by July 3018, but if you wanted to be sure I would leave it until late July 4017.....

                                  Have been x 3 to Cornwall, in 1973, 1986, and 1992.
                                  Easter, summer, April/ may, and summer
                                  2008. Don't recall being too old t all. But have never stayed in Counthouse. What is its history? Once we stayed in a farmhouse with the Rudeforth four Terry&Jen plus their two. I even was taken climbing bu a very fit, keen Terry at Bosigran, he was grumbling about other climbers going over his rope, and how there is a climber's etiquette, impt to observe at all times when climbing. I was both scared and a bit exhilarated. Enjoyed my beer when we got it at the end of a long day. dDave H was out too wearing stripy skintight legs!

                                  I remember it well! But it was a cold house. It wasn't too cold to climb, or to do most other things except swim in the sea without a wet-suit. Cornwall is usually warmer than most other places go for hut meets in April.

                                    Yes Andy, but if you have a chilly hut meet for a weekend you don't mind - if it's a week of it and you've gone all that way....

                                      Just had word there will be a large retrospective of the artist Patrick Heron at Tate St Ives, May to September 2018. One of Cornwall's most acclaimed abstract 20th C artists. A must see I think.

                                          Yes, we'd be interested in a trip to Cornwall, however another month would be better, as we are planning to do the AV2 in the Gran Paradiso at end of June. Anyone want to join us? Any tips from anyone who's done it? Rob & Dave
