Kelling Autumn 2010 Chat Thread

Recommended Posts

Only one week to go. :o

I'm on standby at work so could get called out on Monday and/or Tuesday evenings. Therefore, I'll be packing everything up on Sunday, ready for an early start on Wednesday.

If there is anyone in this thread who hasnt posted their details on the mugshots thread, please can you make your way over so we can fill in as many pitch details as we can. I have lost count of how many people I see wandering around kelling with copies of the mugshots web page printed out, it can be very useful to find people and put names to faces.

Looking at the weather forecast it looks as though we might be in for some changable weather, with a series of front passing rapidly from west to east across the UK. At the moment the forecast for Norfolk seems to be for showers by day and (most importantly) clear at night. I would suggest you bring a waterproof and umbrella!

Glad to hear your guys have had some clear skies already.

Good luck with the front bringing rain coming across the next day or so.

Looking forward to finishing work at lunchtime on Thursday and joining you. My motto is, "If the skies don't clear, crack open a beer".

Good luck Bob and everyone else who's going to Kelling. I won't be there this year but I hope to make it next year either April, September, or possibly both!

Hoping it'll clear up later. :blob10:

I hope it's OK to put this request on here? I am buying a focuser off fellow SGL member Paxo and he's going to Kelling - unfortunately I am not :)

Is there anyone going there from Manchester/Stockport that would be willing to bring it back with them please?

Cheers and feel free to shout at me if this is inappropriate.

Hope you all have a great time and get some decent conditions.

Cheers

Shane

cheers Mick - you're a top bloke. Steve's quite willing to post but I always prefer hand delivery if possible as it 1) keeps more cash in our pockets and not the PO and 2) ensures safe delivery

I'll see if there's other offers over the next couple of days and if not I am sure Steve will post no probs.

Shane, I am there from Wednesday evening until Monday morning.

I am on Plot T215 Blue Butterfly Area . If it is passed onto me then I can always meet up with you at Ikea, again. :-) You have my mobile phone number if you think this would be easier. If this suits let me know.

Regards from Dave G.

cheers Dave - a really kind offer. I may have something sorted but will keep you in reserve if that's OK?

:) Keep in reserve as backup plan B.

The weather is looking a bit of a mix with clear(ish) skies for nightime, showers during the day but Thurs/Fri being reasonable sunshine. Saturday does look gloomy though but whatever I am sure everybody will have a good time. Fingers crossed eh. :blob10:

one thing's for sure Dave - if you are there you have more chance of brilliant skies than I do! also your scopes will all be cooled constantly too so everything becomes grab and go :)

good luck to all. :blob10:
