Latest update from the organisers...
Hey All,
Ok just a quick update for you all. Well what a fantastic response we have had from all you amazing people. Your support again literally blows us away.
Now we only have around 20 weekender tickets left so if you are thinking about coming you had better be quick.
Please Remember if you have booked but not PAID this does not guarantee you a ticket.
The only way to guarantee a place is to pay.
We are shortly sending out reminder e-mails and if we get no reply within a few days then we will assume you no longer wish to come and the ticket will go back out on sale.
As mentioned another local landowner has kindly allowed us to use some extra fields so we will have plenty of fields to hit. They are all in crop at the moment so we need you all to wish for an early harvest so the farmers have plenty of time to prepare the fields for you.
You are not going to be disappointed with the raffles again this year guys prizes are growing by the week...
If we can have as much fun and comeradery as we did last year then we will be in for another amazing weekend.
A huge thank you again for your simply incredible support.

Latest update from the organisers:

Hi All.
Well just over a month to the Rally and its all going well.
As you can see dave and myself have been to the rally site and a lot has been harvested and its now being prepared for us. Ploughing whilst we were checking out gate entrances to fields etc.
Oh now unfortunately there is no water tap on site as its in a field so sorry everyone.
Also the caterer has asked who would be wanting the Hog Roast on Saturday so he can get a rough idea on numbers.
You will all be sent dig details by email a week before the event. Please bring your personal reference number with you along with ncmd card this will gain you entrance to the site. Its a non ticket event everyone.
Anyway raffle prizes are still rolling in..
Looking forward to seeing you all again and some new faces.
Please arrive for 12pm friday detecting starts at 2pm.

Kind Regards

A few people are staying at the Travelodge - J17 M4 - Lynn says anywhere within a 6 mile radius of J18 would be suitable....

Can`t wait for that Sunday, doing a warm up rally at the Anton, this Sunday.
Good luck to all at both events, ::g

Unfortunately yes! I can't go after all. :( I am responsible for aged and increasingly deranged parents and they are playing up. Bath is just too far away for safety.

I am slightly miffed but more concerned that I had offered to lend Saki a spade for the event so I would appreciate it if somebody else could help out please.

Best of luck eveybody

Weather watch
Currently the App is showing rain Friday and Saturday, cloudy on Sunday.
Surely it can’t be as wet as last year!
A week away so all could change.

I have just been grounded by the Hospital for 3 days that weekend, which has spoiled my weekend with you all.

After waiting for 6 months for this one Iam not a happy bunny.

I guess thats life and part of being an Octogenarian.

I will be watching and listening as the news comes through from the site.

Happy Hunting,

Jerry.

You are 80? Wow my hat is doffed Jerry :-O

Very sorry to hear you can’t go. More importantly though please look after yourself as that’s far more important ::g . If you might be able to go on a dig a bit later in the season there’s another Rodney Cook one on the 22nd - a one day one. If you can make that please say. Love to meet you and I won’t be alone :D

Is there another post for this dig's roll call that I've missed? Is there going to be an MDF gathering at some point during the weekend?
