Roadford Lake, summer BBQ, July 15th, 16th & 17th

Post by Richard »

Calling all camper's, so who's up for a weekend under canvas ?

Long range forecast at the mo is apparently "changeable", which must include some wind if also some of the wet stuff.

We have booked our pitch come Friday, beware that we are considering taking "Jack", so if you are planning to make the trip, please keep any uneaten tip bits well hidden :oops:

Cheers, R&A

Unfortunately we're going to miss Roadford as I missed the notice for the big weekend and booked a week in Rhodes fron this weekend and won't be back until a week Sunday. I always wanted to go back to Roadford as we had a great weekend there a few years back. Its a lovely inland site, hills not to big to block the wind, and if there is no wind a great place for walking or exploring further a field. They even had a version of "indoors BBQ" if its a bit damp.

Hope there is a good turn out and you all have a good time. I'll just have to make do with the a few days winsurfing on the Aegean in the Meltemi with temps arround 30C :D

Lol, have a good time Graham!

Sorry I won't be at Roadford as I'm going to do my powerboat course that weekend in Dorset. Have a great time though.

That weekend I have a friend visiting and as he is over from Australia it sort of takes priority. Sorry to miss the summer social event.

Neroli, Axel & I are going. Axel can't find his wellies, so may have to get his paws wet.
If found, please return to the pub.

My powerboat course this weekend has been cancelled due to lack of students and weather, so we are in total dither mode! Tides are rubbish at Portland, Broad Haven looks amazing but we don't have little wave boards, there is wind around so we must go somewhere (unless work comes up) so there is a fair-to-middling chance we may end up at Roadford. If we do we will come armed with booze and burgers as we have missed the rsvp deadline!

Hi Rachael

That's a shame about the course ... hope you get to go on it soon.

There are a few off to Roadford, and some travelling down today. I'm undecided at the moment what I'm doing!!

Roadford

Arrived with the drizzle.
A few gusts around but not much else.
Good wind predicted by the staff for tomorrow.
Lots of room for tents and it's Superhero day tomorrow apparently!!

I will learn to carve! (and jump)

To anyone who's going - don't forget your buoyancy aid.

Thanks for the tip Keith. Billy now has work Sunday so I don't think we'll make Roadford just for the day tomorrow, but I hope you all have a great time.
Sue - please let me know if you have any bright ideas for either day!

Hi Rach

Sent you a message last night, but currently not inspired by the rain :( .. if it looks like clearing I may head to Axbridge, otherwise I'll just get on with other things!

Think there may be one or two Nomads at Newton today.
