  1. Hi All, by way of a thank you from Lesley and Ralph owners of Drumroamin campsite there will be a buffet supper being served in the warm room on the Sat evening 2nd Nov, all campers/attendees welcome can you let me know if anyone requires a vegetarian or other choice in good time. I have sampled Lesleys cooking on many occasions and i can be sure it will be a winner and a very nice gesture. The time of the meal can be decided on the day,and i`m sure a pie or two will make an apperance. Not long to wait now, See everyone there Regards Mike

  9. When you have got it stripped down check the bearings on the curved plate, one or more could be cracked, the bearings and plate are available from W/O,but the plate will be okay and the bearings are widely available from the likes of bearing services for not a lot,hope this helps. Mike

  20. Well i`m onsite and who ordered the rain? The field is in great condition despite the afternoon rain. The journey over was uneventful, but i have to say the A75 is in a poor state loads of cracks and potholes,the temperatures on the way here started at 15* to 18-5 at the M6 and as i approached Newton Stewart a lowly 8* , it is for now at least not raining! Safe journey to all and i will catch up with everyone as they get here, Regards Mike

  22. Hello all ,i thought you would like to know of another astronomy related event,it is taking place the weekend following on from our event,details are here http://www.wigtownbookfestival.com/programme It is a pity that the events could not have been co-ordinated but anyone wanting a longer stay just call Lesley and it should be a fitting way to take in even more astronomy?
