    And I've just spoken to Jez and he's up for it too. I have offered to meet him in the car park this time so he doesn't have to go through the heartbreak of being so close but just not being able to find us again :D

    Morning folks.

    Firstly I have to announce that we cannot use Haddo for our meet this time, the reasons being that they are doing building works in the area we use as well as overhauling the pheasantry/ toilet blocks. The work wont be finished untill October so it rules out Haddo for the September meet as well.

    They asked us if we could find someplace else but did offer to put us up in another spot in the park if we couldnt. However after speaking to a lot of different people from the council, FC and woodland trust, I have managed to get us use of a woodland trust owned area called den wood which is not that far from Haddo.

    I spoke to the area manager who was very kind and helpful and she was fine with the plan of our activities and how we run our site etc.

    The only thing we are waiting for is knowing what we are allowed fire-wise and it will be her boss who will decide that. I have arranged to meet her and the warden of the area down at the woods to select a site and run through the weekend with them.

    We will keep to the dates planned Thursday 25th- Sunday 28th April.

    I also said we wouldn't mind doing any conservation work[FONT=&quot] [/FONT]while we were down there as a way of saying thanks.

    below is a map that was sent to me of the area we will be in:


    ( Ok I will need to figure out how to include a PDF file , your patience is required lol)


    Also here is the risk assessment for the meet, if your coming please have a look at this and get in contact if you are unsure of anything.

    Also same rules apply as previous meets:

    Ok folks a reminder of the rules. By confirming that you are coming you are agreeing to these rules.


    This list isn't exhaustive - common sense applies. If in doubt, Ask!

    •Forum members are responsible for themselves, the kit they use and their own actions at the Meet – if you bring along family (or a friend) then you also accept responsibility for them and their actions whilst they are on site. The site or the council will not be held responsible for any accidents that happen during our stay.

    •Rubbish: you brought it in, you put it in the bag – I will bring some bags along and if we can leave the site better than when we got there it will leave a good impression and we will more likely to be asked back.

    •Responsible drinking of alcohol is ok – drugs are prohibited!

    •‘Appropriate’ behavior: The site can, at any time, decline a booking – they can also ask(tell) us (individually or wholly) to leave during the Meet.

    •Fires: are NOT to be left unattended, If you take a turn in watching the group fire or make your own and have to leave it please ask somebody to watch it for you (we are in the woods after all)

    •Nobody is to go cutting down any live tree ( please ask if you are unsure)

    •Food: you need to bring enough food and water to feed yourself while you are at the Meet.

    •Accidents do happen and people will try to help out where they can however bringing your own First aid kit is important.

    •If you are visiting someone else’s pitch do not expect to be fed.

    •Use the appropriate tools at the appropriate times.

    •It would be wise to be carrying a torch before it gets dark! It could also be provident to put markers on your shelter so you can find it in the dark.

    •The pitch is suitable for using tents, hammocks and bivvies - use what you have and are comfortable using. There is still ample room to bring/use one type and trial/experiment with another. ( TBC ate the recce)

    •If you stick your name down and can no longer make it, please say so. It really helps me keep track of things.

    •Please note that, on occasion, the first post will be edited to include better information. Although updates/edits will be posted in the thread, the first post needs to be re-read well in advance of the Meet

    •In the highly unlikely event that I need to make use of this ... I reserve the right to stop any individual(s) from attending a Meet. Any individual(s) who I feel endanger our future use of the site will be required to leave the site.

    • Please do not leave knives, axes unsheathed/ lying around.


    The 'Touchy Subject' bit:
    The only people we can't accommodate are those who would, purposely or otherwise, do harm to others. Primarily, this means that if you would be found unfit to adopt or foster a child then you can’t come along – same goes for anyone knowingly under investigation or having had an allegation made against them and is awaiting investigation.

    It's fine if you want to:
    •be on your own
    •lay on your back looking at the sky, clouds, birds flying over etc
    •whittle
    •practice 'stuff' - except tree felling; the site has strong opinions about that
    •practice flora and fauna i.d
    •so on and so forth ...

    This is, in no way, a bushcraft course and it's for you to make of it what you will.

    CBJ,

    Still looking to make it to this one.... and atleast the den wood is a shorter walk from oldmeldrum than Haddo :)

    Something I've been thing about since the last meet at Haddo was using the Wrack woods as a venue - it's in banff to the back of Duff House, apparentley it's owned by Aberdeenshire council. I don't know much about it, but thought you've got contacts with the rangers @ haddo and maybe they'd know who to contact to see about using the wrack woods?... just a thought.

    I will be home 24/25 Apr so I'll be able to make this one now, probably Friday through to Sunday. Wife won't be impressed, but what's a few more days?

    Cheers Mark - currently floating off the west coast of Norway :)

    Mousey: yeah that was a hell of a walk for you last time lol. Good idea its always good to see if we can get to new places, I now have contacts in the council, rangers, FC and WT so any places you come across just let us know and ill see if we would be allowed to use it.

    Yeah I think I know the place I was up there not long ago. Might be an interesting spot.


    Mark: Great news mate, will be good to chat again.
