    ..and the cans of Stella Artois, gin and tonic, Tesco Basics Brandy, red wine etc. I remember we also ate something at some point. I seem to recall a picture of me, you, Henry and Gary was taken at some point but whoever took it was has, mercifully, decided not to post it...

    @jeremy :

    I had the pleasure to attend the meeting a year ago. Unfortunately, I did not have the opportunity to meet this pleasant gathering group before

    I had two bottles, reduced to £8 apiece - I think you drank at least one of them over the day/evening/night/early hours! :D 8]

    I seem to recall seeing David with a bottle of budget brandy in his hand and also seeing poor Roland propping up the drunks. :lol::lol::lol:

    Funny I remember being there and seeing the photo taken, but I can't for the life of me remember who took it. I guess I must have been on the sauce that night as well.:oops: Perhaps a retake is in order next year.:thumbup:

    Well, between 50-100 lampies and stovies turn up in a field at Newark with their tents, caravans or whatever. Some folk turn up as early as the previous Tuesday. During the day, they cook food on camping stoves, fettle lamps, lanterns and stoves and talk a lot. At night they do the same but illuminated by pressure lanterns. Some folk put on a display; others don't. We had a pizza oven last year which was great. There's usually some stove wanging (don't ask!) with a prize for the winner. It's a very inclusive, hugely enjoyable and friendly gathering. Folk generally pack up on Sunday morning and head off home. I think that's about it - can't think I've missed anything out... ;) :lol:

    @D williamson

    Hi

    Make the effort and you won't be disappointed.
    It is all very informal.

    In the past 'newbies' have turned up with no lanterns and no stoves but that does not really matter.
    They have had a great time and have usually left with lanterns and stoves at 'friends' bargain prices.
