Have not been on SGL for a couple of weeks and was surprised there has not been any guff posted on this thread, considering it’s only a couple of weeks until this gathering. Having stalked Mapstar I can see he has not even booked yet - am sure he will manage to squeeze in.

Looking forward to meeting regulars and newbies alike.

Just need to sort scope out and decide which medicine to bring ?

Hoping to get there late on Thursday if I can get the van defrosted.  

Last time, I only arrived in time for the cracking Saturday dark sky event and missed the refreshments.  I understand the whisky stuff but what’s this about pies? Are we supposed to bring home baking?
