    Default February Moot 2018

    We're thinking of putting a February Moot together (this coming Feb in 2018) and I'm interested in getting your views and thoughts on it.

    At the moment we're looking at using the same site as the big summer Moot, rent the place for a week, anyone can come and camp, use the facilities etc. We'll make sure there's firewood available. I'm thinking some would like to come for the week and others just for a few days or the weekend. I don't think that we'll have a workshop timetable setup like we do for the big Moot but we may have a theme that we share skills on, at the moment that's going to be 'Cooking' and run over the weekend. That would allow us to share ideas, food, show each other skills ranging from fire lighting to dutch oven cooking etc.

    For those that have been to the Summer Moot before we'd probably use the big sandy area by the main building as a gathering area for skill sharing.

    Not sure on costs yet.

    I expect Mr Fenna would like to come but will feel the cold so may need to be sponsored with a nice warm sleeping bag, in pink of course.

    Any thoughts, ideas etc are welcome...

    I would be up for a bit if that if it doesn't clash with our half term (and I get a pass)

    I was given a pink sleeping bag one year - thank you - but it ended up going to refugees in Syria!
    I would love to come for the week but would need to assess finances/work/health first ...

    I expect I could be persuaded to come along. Might have to bring extra fuel and keep warm by the forge mind!

    That's half term around here. I'd be up for this - probably without family for this one. Following with interest....!

    If it times in with The Dragon Rally in north Wales then definitely! I'd just have to convince Bex to drive down and meet me at the Moot, she can also bring extra supplies as I'd be packing light as I'd be on two wheels.

    It looks as though the provisional dates given for both the Dragon Rally and the February Moot tie in well. The Dragon being on the two days before the Moot. It would give me a 190ish mile ride down the length of Wales from the Conwy area through Snowdonia and the Brecon Beacons. Certainly worse ways to spend a long week in February! :-D

    That's half term for Powys.

    Very interested but would most likely be for a few days not the full week, just one adult and one child then.

    Work permitting, we'd be up for this! Might have to be a long weekend rather than the full week though.
    And certainly no lack of cold-weather gear in this household.

    I'll be there. Will be great fun camping with friends sharing skills and enjoying the fireside banter.
