Kielder Autum 2007

Recommended Posts

Well its only about 2.5 weeks till this event begins.

I think that its near on fully booked which will make it a massive turnout this time.

I am also expecting a great turnout from SGL members (many going for the first time)

As i was unavailable to go to Kelling i am probably getting over excited about it.

Its gonna be a hoot.... :occasion5: :drunken:

Hi Jamie,

First ever SP for me, I've been excited for about 2 weeks already ;):wink::(

Cheers,

Ian

Snap !! I'm already thinking about all the packing !!! Cripes I had no idea there was sooo much to take. Jamie, perhaps a daft question, but what's security like ? Are there marshalls etc around- I mean what's to stop Berty burgler and his pals lifting kit ?

Hi Karlo

There is no dedicated security as such......BUT

As well as the marshals on duty helping out and answering questions. (kielder starcamp has been built on trust) and not in a naive way either...

There are always folk looking out for one another. Some of the guys that go there are big

blokes that you just wouldn't want to get on the wrong side of. ;)

Seriously though, the site is never deserted.

I don't have a problem leaving my scope out even when i am not there because of the

guys next to you looking out for your kit while you're away. (plus i do the same for them)

You normally get a better class of human being at these events and unwanted strangers stand out like a sore thumb...

On another upside, Kielder starcamp is out in the middle of nowhere so the opportunist thief is unlikely.

In all the time Kielder starcamp has been running i have never heard of anything being stolen

Well looking forward to this ;). Already getting the gear together and organising....

If it's half as good a Kelling, I'll be in raptures!

I did say it'd be a daft question. :oops:

You wouldn't be counting yourself amongst those "really big blokes"would you ? Thanks for the reply though, my mate and I are seriously looking fwd to the party and the camping and just soaking it all up whether the clouds stay away or not ! :( Just trying to start gathering kit together as I type.

Cheers, will see you there, Karlo. ;):wink:

Don't let them kid you Karlo.

I'm as tame as a tame thing... ;)

The guys on SGL like to in a fun way emphasize the olde Scots/Glaswegian stigma.

Jeeze, Daz is a far bigger bloke than me at 6ft2" i think.

I am a petite 5ft 11"

And I'm taller than both of 'em! :wink:

I think what makes people a little edgy of our Jamie is the tatoo on his forehead saying 'DEATH TO ALL'.....

I wondered if you noticed my careful wording. Besides I've put on weight since I stopped smoking, a whopping half a stone! I'm almost slim now rather than skinny :D.

Wish I could make it Jamie. I hope you all have a great time and that you get Kelling weather. Even if not I suspect there will still be a party atmosphere ;)
