Event Description

After last year successful climbing festival at Wilton 1 this years fest is well under way and weather willing it will be even better that last years meet.  Last year the Mob played an important part which I know doubt we will do the same again this year.  I have been assured that the raffle won't be quite as long although Tim didn't complain getting first prize a new rope. possibly we could camp again.

Hi Derek, looking like a nice weekend. I am hiring a marquee for Saturday, and everybody can sleep in there, if they like. It is on the BMC car-park, so tarmac floor, but still might be better than a tent. I'll be there about 7:30, Rob Dyer is showing up about 8:30, so from that time and on-wards we will be setting up. Looking like a fab weekend. Tim

Hi Tim looks like we'll have a good turn out on Saturday, all we need now is for the weather to play ball.  Have you thought anymore on camping or just camp on the Plato same as last year.  See you Saturday. D

Hi all. There will be a marquee in the BMC car-park from about 8 am, so parking there is extremely limited. Either park on the top road, the car-park further along Scout Rd, or in the far car-park at the Wilton Arms. If, people want to sleep in the marquee overnight, they are free to do so, I am. Please, bring a chair for sitting on, for the evening entertainment, their will be a slide show with Callum, and 2 films, one from Nick Bamber on Wilton/Lancs climbing and one from Robin on Ousel's Nest, routes and bouldering. Also, we are meeting at Ousel's on Tuesday 2nd Sep for some last minute filming if you want to come along. And, could you all bring your own mugs if you want brews during the day.

Just had word from Nick Bond the main man, he's planning to be up there for 9 am to start getting set up.  Last year the Mob did a Stirling job helping out, I will be there to lend a hand if anyone else wants to join us.  Tim has mentioned that he was looking at the camping side? Give me a call if you want to know more. Last years was a great day on the Saturday with over a 100 turning out.  Regards Derek

Looking into ways of improving the camping for this event, will keep you informed of the outcome.
