    That sounds grand Gary.

    Whilst I like the idea of everyone in the same field, the marquee, BBQ etc, I think it could still work with a lot less organisation a la XOTF based at Keswick - there's a few campsites in walking distance plus more upmarket accommodation for those bringing less hardy partners along. The difficulty with more organisation is that someone has to do it, and take the moaning from anyone who disagrees with some point or other.

    I can't see why you'd need lots of crates of beer for it though.

    As long as it was outside the main holiday season, mid July-August Bank, then those who wanted guest house/hotel accommodation should be OK

    a Saturday race would be best re getting bladdered on the Saturday night
    Duddon (June 5th) is obvious choice (there's even a short option on the race!)
    Borrowdale is usually on a Saturday too isn't it? but that would be in August...

    there's merry's BG late June mind - so presumably we want to go either a few weeks before or after...

    Cracking idea about merrys BG.

    But the idea with duddon having a long and short course is very wise....opens it out for more people.

    Good thinking la slug.
