October South West Starparty - including during and after discussions :-)

Recommended Posts

I'm looking at arranging a South West starparty for the weekend 12th/13th/14th October 2012..Here.. http://www.halsefarm.co.uk/index.htm

The Starparty will be at a registered dark sky location on Exmoor at a family run farm/campsite, which has good reviews with all the amenities..

I'm just looking at a general who's interested and would like to come along to an informal, family friendly starparty.

For those who don't know me, i'm used to organising starparty's as any of the MODs will verify as it was myself who found the Lucksall site and did most of the arranging of the fist one.

Anyway any one who's interesed then post here...

Cheers

Greg

Hello Greg,

Kai has just alerted me to your post in another post on the Devon and Cornwall group pages (might be worth re-posting there as well). Although it is still some time in the future and it is difficult to be certain that we would be OK to go, I would certainly like to put myself/family forward as a definite/possibility!!

I don't think I know the Halse Farm camp site, but it's not very far from here at all so I may well be up for it. Be interesting to see how it compares with home.

Yep count me in, looks a great site.

An added bonus for me is that the mother in law was planning a visit on those dates. :grin:

Hi Greg, my wife and I would be interested if you can supply us with any further information when available, such as prices etc as the website doesn't give them for October, and booking arrangements. Cheers

Hi Greg,

Definately interested. Would need to sort stuff out with work and transport issues but it is a great idea and it would be fantastic if it all falls into place.

Hi Greg, not just me and the wife, but my daughter, son-in-law and family, 2 sprogs, also want to come, and we're looking to see if we can hire a caravan or fixed chalet on the site for six of us, not sure if this is possible or they have the facilities. I am partly disabled anyway and find it difficult to camp in a tent.

No problem Robin, I'm going up to the site over the next week or so to have look for myself and meet the owners and I can find out exactly what the facilities are like. I'll report back soon.

They phoned me today and were very receptive to our needs and are keen to get involved with the astronomy crowd.

Hi Greg, I wrote to the site, they do not have any fixed dwellings, so my wife and will camp, whilst our daughter and family will look for a local B&B, they have a small baby and so will not be able to camp. Thanks for keeping in touch.

Hi, 2 of us definately interested but would be on a 'day visitor' basis from home. I love camping on the summer but circulation problems mean Oct in a tent is not on.

Thanks,

Thats no problem... In a month or so I shall confirm numbers and book the pitches. I think we're up to about 10 so far..

Hi Greg. Like Robin I would be happier not in a tent (at 6'7" either my head or feet will be out one end or the other :smiley:)) but couldn't see any chalets mentioned on the web site, so any further information you can furnish us with when you are next in contact with them would be good
