Who'd want to come?

My suggestion is a weekend in June (i'll go a day early so anyone who wants to make it a 3 nighter can join us then)

Would you prefer:

* * * Bracelands / Christchurch in the Forest of Dean

* * * New Forest, eg Roundhill

I know both areas well and they would definitely suit

It wo8ld be on a book and pay yourself basis to minimise hassle and retain good friendships grin

(Oh and I wills ve this thread and then return to it in due course to CAT people when the time is more suitable)

Bracelands would be fine for us, but I think New Forest is too far for just a couple of nights.

The forest of dean isn't too far from us, would love to come the last weekend in June as its between mine and DHs birthdays!

Definitely if it is a weekend in June.

Either site is ok but New Forest might be better.

Me + DS (4)

Oh I would love to come to the Forest of Dean to meet you all, but New Forest probably too far for a weekend. Maybe we could have the rally field on Bracelands grin

Would love to come, no preferences on time really (would prefer not end of summer as that's when the daddy long legs are worst and I might really embarrass myself).

I really can't see DH agreeing to a MN camp though grin! He will do this hmm

Surfermum Mon 06-Jul-09 20:55:57

I don't mind where we go. New Forest is nearer to us, but am happy to travel as well

Bumperlicious Mon 06-Jul-09 20:56:05

Oh, and FoD, midlands/West best for us, but I'll go pretty much anywhere nice (we were at the Peaks in May).

Surfermum Mon 06-Jul-09 20:56:34

Oh June is good for me too!

IwishIwasmoreorganised Mon 06-Jul-09 21:29:52

I'm very interested in a Forest of Dean site - not sure DH feels the same but next June gives me lots of time to work on him grin

ingles2 Mon 06-Jul-09 21:33:40

I'd like to come.... gives me plenty of time to persuade dh grin

gigglewitch Mon 06-Jul-09 21:37:19

possibly - I'm north west so possibly midlands / peak better for us smile

Well for reluctant DH's DH can offer Cobb masterclasses PMSL........

Or just sit in a corner with beer whinging about how much time is wasted on MN when I couopd be doing housework?

But is anything happening Aug this Year at all?

PeachyTheRiverParrettHarlot Tue 07-Jul-09 09:53:00

I think we need Roven for that one? grin

Overmydeadbody Tue 07-Jul-09 13:02:35

I'm up for this, deffo (provided the campsite is affordable, so no more than 10 per night for DS and I combined)

nappyaddict Wed 08-Jul-09 22:32:08

FOD better for me but it will depend if i'm driving by then.

LoveBuckets Thu 09-Jul-09 10:57:48

Wow just spotted this, would LOVE to come!!! Was just about to post if anything ever came of the idea of a MN special needs camping meetup funnily enough.

New Forest v convenient for me (don't even know where FoD isblush) but can travel. Would be me, DH, 7yr old DD, 5yr old DS and DS2 would be 22m.

4andnotout Thu 09-Jul-09 10:59:59

Im up for it, i have a family of 6 so something cheapish, can we bring our dog or not?

I've seen dogs at Bracelands before

<whispers> I didn't like the look of Christchurch when we went for a walk/nosy at other peoples tents - the facilities look a bit old......
