    information on the moot can be found here: http://www.bushcraftuk.com/community/announcement.php?f=10

    there is plenty of space for hammocks, there will be large communal fire and small cooking fires are fine if they are in fire boxes, kelly kettles etc

    fires are allowed on the site but with this many people in one place we ask that people refrain form lighting their own personal camp fires and instead join us around the central fire, there is more of a community spirit in a getting together around a large central fire in the evening than having dozens of little fires throughout the woods with only a few lonely silhouettes to each

    I would also like to come, to finish off the bow I started last year. I worked on it a bit but then got a bit scared I'd ruin it - so I thought it would be best to leave it until the next moot where I could get some advice.

    There is no set amount..... the guys and gals running the workshops and demos supply the materials out their their own pockets, so any contribution is very welcome to help them cover the costs.

    I'm happy to do a walk on birds songs and calls (dawn or evening) if anyone is interested :confused: I would recommend that anyone wanting to do this brings along a bird identification field guide for reference though.
