I expect this list to fill up quickly so do not delay if you want a place!

Hello
Its time we came to one of these so we can start to put faces to folks. No excuse not to, we only live just over t'moors.
Practical question from "the crew"... is there somewhere to empty the cassette?

Yes, sort of.

The is an elsan on the side of the canal, but you will need a BW key. (and a small donation to the canals trust)

Hi

Possibly a daft question, but not having been to a meet before...is there space reserved for us at the Pub car park, or do we have to fight it out with the bank holiday trippers? The answer might affect the time we need best turn up.

Hello,

I will be there on Thursday afternoon and will be able to help you then. We do have less vans at this meet, but we need to leave space for cars to park in between the vans in the daytime.

Hi
Thanks to Admin and anyone else involved in arranging the meet. A good weekend despite the rain, good to put some faces to the names at last and meet new folks. We only live about 10 miles away from Bugsworth, amazed we never discovered the Navigation before. Hope to see you all again at another meet sometime after November when we get back from France, Spain, Portugal and Germany, and maybe Czeck Republic. We'll be keeping an eye out for those big Ws.

Tilly Sues dog found this little chap abandoned trying to get out of the canal. The mother must have known something was wrong with him and left him to fend for himself. We took him further up and put him with some more ducks but none was interested in him. He tried to swim but just went round in circles with his head in the water. We should have left him I suppose but could not bring myself to do that so took him back to the van. Made a nest in a bowl out of paper and put him in it. Sue went on the internet to see how to look after an abandoned duckling. It said to give him sugar water but he was unlikely to survive with no mum. Sue fed him the sugar water for about half and hour, at one stage he seemed to be perking up, alas he then just upped and did a couple of little squeaks and passed away. When we picked him out of the canal he was freezing, at least he died nice and warm and dry.
