My wife is recovering after an operation, so I'll only be there for the Saturday now :cry: , unless I find gold, then she's on her own for the whole weekend :D
I'll be wearing black trousers, (with a club badge sewn on), and most probably a green / blue hooped rugby type top. If you see me, please say hello :thumbsup: I'll probably be hanging around the food vans quite a lot :lol: :lol:

I'm here, tent is up, definitely buying an inflatable one for next year's rallies though, poles are a pain on your own.

Did a couple of hours detecting, found a bit of what the Mrs insists on calling a scrotal ball.

Few hammies have come up, and someone found a gold ring, don't know any more than that though so it might have been lost by the detectorist in front of them for all I know.

Just finished the MOD's finest chick pea curry, and about to eat my ginger pudding before I head off in search of beer, I'm told there's a hog roast, so I'm sure that will help soak up the several pints I plan to test for quality.

Coleman Instant Dome Tent, easy to put up "all in one" and robust enough to last several years. :thumbsup:

Very well organised, no problem getting in nice grass field for camping, nothing worse than stubble.
Regton and LP in attendance, giving advice a few trade stands inside, seen a few YouTubers, seems par for the course nowadays.
Had a little mount of some sort, today's field had been disced and rolled flat, nice to see.

Far too small. ;)

I know they do some big ones, but they're far more expensive than I like for a couple of weekends a year.

I like a 4 man tent I can stand up in, I have a load of little hiking tents which are OK if I have to carry it, but if I'm driving and spending a weekend in the same place I like a bit of room.
Decathlon have a decent one that I've been looking at that will do the job.


Beer van has Doom Bar which is alright by me.

You can have a look at mine Jamesey, it's probably the one you are thinking of, mine came from Decathlon.

Chap opposite my tent has one, gave me a hand with the poles, was that you?

I have a blue volvo if that helps.
