I used to have a few hard steel pegs made from spindles out of an old wool mill similar to yours and someone stole em by borrowing

Garragh Mhór is absolutely excellent. Someone should nail this while it's flying.

Joking aside for a moment, if at first your "standard" peg doesn't go in, try about 3/4" to the left or right. My suspicion is that under the green stuff is the Easdale equivalent of type 1 compacted to "below runway tarmac" standard. There are peg sized holes in it, and so far I've never failed to get a standard peg in using nothing more than my foot - granted in some cases after 4 or 5 tries.....

Having said that, it's still airbed territory!

Update !! 30 registrations so far.

I have emailed everyone who hasn't yet registered but have attended previous years so hopefully that will remind some more people ..... I'm loathe to list the people already registered in case some people don't want their activities published !!!!!
