            I can take four passengers and luggage in my van if that fits in with other people's plans.
            I'd like to take my roadie bike - I could share transport with someone else if they have a bike rack.

              We can't go on the meet but our bike rack can! Will bring it tonight to see if it fits your van, Paul, or anyone else's car.

              9names so far, so 1 more space.

              Is there space for Moa and me?

                One more space, it said.

                Does Moa count as a half space? In which case, only one half space more needed.

                  Can we have an update on this, please?

                  Who is still planning to go? And can anyone give me and Moa lift on Friday?

                  Thanks.

                    Hello everybody,
                    I'm afraid Moya is not feeling well so I m responding on her behalf. Sorry we haven't been active in responding to this thread but we've been busy driving to Strasbourg and back.
                    Anyway, as far as i can tell the following people have booked places:
                    Paul S (1); John and Fiza (3); Declan and Margot (5); Alan and Pauline (7); Wendy (8); and Moya and I (10). I don't know why Moya thought there was one more place but it looks like, as things stand, there aren't places for you or Moa, Dan. If you want, however, Moya and I could drop out and you could have our places Dan. In which case, would you like to take over as meet leader?

                      Hi Andy,

                      Well it seems a bit harsh to kick you off the trip. But if you don't really want to go, just let me know. I do not know what being meet leader entails, so I cannot give an answer on this right now. Also, I would need a lift there, so until that is sorted I will have to hold off on giving a definitive answer, sorry.

                      Dan

                        I can book 2 more places if needed, Andy / Dan.

                          Dan, she can give you and Moa a lift?f you don't know what's entailed in being meet leader, it's time you did! As far as I know, this onerous role comprises three principal tasks: drawing up the list of attendees, taking the money, and coordinating Saturday's evening meal, assuming there is a communal one. I would have thought you could manage that Dan!
                          If you want to go - take our places, Moya doesn't feel that she'll be up to it, and I'm not bothered- or will camp.
                          Paul has offered to drive- why don't you ask him if he can give Moa and you a lift?

                            Looks like the gremlins have struck! Dunno who 'Andyn' is and why he is getting involved in this discussion, maybe it has something to do with trying to post whilst watching the cricket on TV!
                            Anyway, thanks Dell but no thanks, I think Moya and I will have to drop out. Dan, I was teasing you about taking over as meet leader, but it really isn't such a hard job and if you read the thread, you'll see that Paul Smith is / was offering to drive, so I suggest you ask him

                              Hi Dell, Andyn, Andy B, and all others.

                              Thanks for all the offers. Yes, if you are sure you don't mind, I will be happy to go and do the rest, which I guess consists of collecting money and organising the meal. Do I have to call anyone at the hut? Can someone give me the number, please?

                              I have called Paul, he is waiting to see how many will go.

                              Cheers,

                              Dan

                                Yes, I'm sure I don't mind. No, I don't think you have to call anyone about the hut, but someone will have to liaise with Dell about the key

                                  Dan, the easy thing to do is to see who may be there 1st (Declan, Margo, Wendy ?) and let them have the key/instructions so that they can open the hut up etc

                                    Hi all,
                                    I've emailed the hut booking lady for Caseg Fraith to ask if we can have a couple of extra parking spaces as there should be room. She's due to send me the hut key code this week anyway, at which point I'll email all those on the list so everyone knows how to get in no matter what time they arrive so you won't need to worry about that, Dan.

                                      Many thanks for all the help from everyone!!!

                                      Just trying to arrange transport now. We will see hopefully Tues who is going for sure.

                                        Dan..if you and Moa get a lift with Paul, Declan,Margo & Wendy go together (see Declan's post),and we will either travel with John &Fisa or perhaps take two cars if we can get extra parking spaces.

                                        If there is a problem parking I think its possible to pay to park car at the adjacent campsite.

                                        Will try to get to pub tonight but dependant on wind conditions...and folk deciding on Shepherds or Cheese..

                                          Thanks for the update Alan P! The other potential snag is that I can't leave till after 6. But hopefully this will be met with only mild disapproval.

                                            Guess you need to talk to Paul about departure times.

                                            We'll most likely leave Friday morning just after rush hour if the weather is looking ok, and mid afternoon if its not.
