    SGL Mini Spring Star Party

    Not to panic, we're heading for the pub in half an hour. And I think it might be clearing up a bit.... Ever the optimist

    The sky last night was superb. My night was only cut short due to moisture and a little coating of frost on everything, including me. Bring your thermals it's due to get cooler at the weekend.

    It's actually been quite kind today. Raining in Bristol when I left but it was dry here while I set up. Bit of drizzle now though. Been quite mild and not windy. Forecast is mixed and changing regularly. I'll keep you all posted if you like. Man in the field (literally) better than any forecast. Think it's beans time. Maybe with a full bodied red.

    There are plenty of electric hook ups (not on every pitch though so make sure to ask for one when you book) and the toilets are quite nice. I'm quite looking forward to it. Been there so often now it's a bit like a home from home.

    Booked and booked. Extended stay for the week. Looking forward to the belly pork at Hanlegas (and Wednesday night is steak night!). And a pint with John at the pub.

    SGL2017 Picture thread

    Just to add my twopence worth. Rough draft of M31 from the Friday night (best shot I've got of it so far. Many subs of RGB, etc)). And for those that weren't still there for the tail end of storm Ophelia, the big top performed admirably. No clowns died.

    Bring and Buy sale?

    I've got an ST80 OTA (plus eq1) that's gathering dust. If anyone's interested I'll pop it in the van.

    Fyi. For the brave amongst you. Pitch 108 will have the green fairy available to keep you warm during the cold nights

    Had a practice pitch with my new tent. Spacious doesn’t quite do it justice....

    SGL 2017 Chit chat

    SGL is only 3 and a half weeks away. So why is this thread so quiet? Come on chaps and chapettes let's start the usual build up excitement! I've even bought a new tent for the occasion. A monster of a bell tent. Party at mine Friday night.

    Save The Date

    I think I'll just relaunch the Sixpenny Handley star party for spring instead of autumn. I was put off doing so when there was talk of two SGL's

    What about the spring event? Is that not now happening?
