I've got my Small Person that weekend, so won't be able to ride anywhere. The campsite is probably going to be too noisy for small kids. However, if the weather's good, then it's not too far to bring him down for a while to look at the bikes. What time is everybody expected back at the site after the ride on Saturday?

Hi Ian, I'll ask Supervox about timings but he's bringing his small ones, and Saaed may also bring his little girl so no reason why you can't join in. If you can't make it in the evening then there is always the lunch stop - my sister is goig to come for a picnic with her two boys of the wether is nice - which it will be as there isn't going to be ANY rain. If you want to camp then no reason why you can't set up in the other field with the less noisy normal campers - well away from Dave Preston.

Although I cannot be there I will smile safe in the knowledge that Dave will be taking his own megaphone this year just in case he needs help finding his tent at 3 in the morning again.

I could borrow a megaphone from work. But I'm not going to. Instead I'm thinking about a gag and straitjacket.

No, she didn't say she would borrow them from work, just that she was considering using them instead of a megaphone borrowed from work.

She keeps the gag and the straight jacket in her cellar.
