    @Grant, I'm booked on pitch 31 for Saturday night only but unfortunately I won't be able to make it. Feel free to re-allocate the pitch and my food voucher Hope to see you all next year. Cheers Derek

  7. Hi Ade, I'm not at home so can't measure mine but I reckon the legs on a UNI-18 are about 8-10cm wide and 3-4cm deep. Your tripod looks thinner in both dimensions but you might be able to modify the leg braces that the spreader clicks onto. Derek
