    This venue is offered for family bushcraft activities only, and is not in any way offered as a course, although impromptu demo's may happen!

    Since I put my name down no one else has said they are coming....
    Should I change my deodourant?
    Is it still on?
    If it is I will bring my trade bag of commercial gear - I will not bring my craft/home made stuff unless someone wants anything in particular....
