more easy to clean,more stabile with blowing over.

those four sided mini sheds "blow"over my site supervisor found out. i pushed him over and the toilet landed on its door.

thats why they made them diffirent, and should be better with the smell.

I can't wait to see who wakes up in the night to find one in their tent. It will also be interesting to see how many go missing. Clochmerle was a classic....well remembered.

This is usually one of my favourite threads on here - it really gets me in the mood for W&P - but this is quite worrying. We're looking to go down to Beltring, as usual, next Saturday but it really needs to dry out a lot before then!

 

The whole site is fairly low lying (I remember seeing it in the 1968 floods when I was 4!) and the River Medway forms part of the boundary so it's no surprise that it gets a bit wet, but how wet would it have to be before they cancelled the show?!

 

A massive fingers crossed job for some drier weather this week!!

Peter,

I was down by the Medway yesterday, and the river level was not that bad, I suspect that Lee is near the stream that flows past the shower block and down alongside Monktons fields. We will await further info. The Americas Field was in very good shape on Sat morning.

It was really wet a few years back.. we still had fun.. Doubt there's any plans to cancel it.. the water level has dropped a bit already & some areas have started to drain off..

Correct Richard.. this is the one that overflowed.. down by the showers the water was over the footbridge..

 

If people have common sense & keep vehicle movement to a minimum & were capable of driving their vehicle properly (Unlike the guy Mark had to help out) then the ground should be ok when it dries off..

Year 15 for me too, I really wish the weather picks up a bit. It's no fun having to pick all the mud out of the wheels and tracks... I remember doing that in 2007 and I think there's still mud in the Spartan from that year!
