Solent Gathering, 12th September

As those that regularly attend the Solent gathering will know, we sort of arranged to have a BBQ for the next meeting.

I suggest we all bring food/Drink along and cook to our own taste, Ill bring along 3 disposable BBQs unless loads of people say they are coming and Ill bring more.
Ill even get there early to light them up.

Talking of there we obviously cant set up camp and light the BBQs in the pub.
There is a public gravel car park with a view and some grass on top of Portsdown hill up the rough track from the pub, the one facing inland rather than the busy one facing the Island. Or we could go elsewhere, maybe the beach by the Ferry Inn at Hayling Island, Im up for suggestions.
My back Garden could be an option, apart from keeping the kids awake on a school night!

Nasher.

Oh Pete, you do like to draw attention to the fact that you did not take your fenders in.

Was that brolly any use at all last night?

Guys / Gals

Does anyone have any serious suggestions about a meeting place for the BBQ?

Or is it general opinion that trying to arrange an outdoor event at the moment is asking for trouble?

Pete Perhaps Old Spice should be renamed

The Mary Poppins

Oh thanks Nasher. Actually it was a bloody useful keeping all the rain off. The fenders were left out because we were travelling up the Rance so lots of French locks. Very pretty area, thinking of going back next year. Cheap petrol too, even Mark & Nasher could afford to come along with those huge thirsty outboards.

Pete

How about on Old Spice?? Large enough deck area, plus the brolly for when it rains.. We could have the BBQ at one end, a dance floor in the middle, bar's either side, which would still leave room for a 20 piece orchestra at the back..

As for a serious suggestion.. The weather is prolly gonna scupper any plans.. Look at Sunday, scorchio in the day, then bucketing down in the evening.. It mebbe an idea to set a firm plan 24 hrs before Nasher, and let peeps know then.. As for somewhere to BBQ, there's a good sized area just in front of Fort Purbrook, (up Peter Ashley Drive from Crookhorn Lane,) a sorta flat bowl shaped patch of grass.. Also close enough to the church incase of rain..

Think youre right, well see what the forecast is nearer the time.

You are also right about yesterday, spent a great day out on the Solent even though the Solent Chop was a little bigger that usual. Then got home, spent ages washing the boat, wetsuits and other gear out, then half an hour later neednt have bothered, I could have just left the cover off the boat and the wetsuits on the line.

Nah. Just turn it upside down and use it as a marquee.

Weather as follows.
