I would be more than happy to open the Field of Dreams up to Autoshiters again this year.

 

Last year after Shitefest 16 we had 2 further open days and these were very enjoyable and I realized that traveling to rally fields when I have my own is not always necessary and all I need is some friends to join me.

 

From just somewhere to camp with your family - small gathering working on mine or your own stuff - larger group with maybe a visit off site such as the excellent idea David Fowler came up with of Bletchley Park just 15 minutes away, is all fine with me.

 

The only issues are toilets, a few blokes using the hedge on a day visit is fine, we have a caravan toilet we can set up for a few guests, but larger camping groups will need to hire a plastic box.

 

My free dates at the moment are:

24/25 June

1/2 July

8/9 July

12/13 Aug

19/20 Aug

9/10 Sep

23/24 Sep

7/8 Oct

14/15 Oct

21/22 Oct

28/29 Oct

 

Pick some dates it does not have to be limited to just one date.

 

If Mr DW or anybody else was to organize there own version of a gathering using our field that would be fine.

I'm up for this, any of the dates suit just so long as I have a bit of notice, so I will go with the masses.

I might even get the Solara to this one!

We are not sure who is having the hay this year yet, but last year the farm did not take it until early September.

Not got much to work on really, though the Yaris could do with a coolant change at some point.

Always up for another field of dreams gathering. Will check those dates but it's not exactly far away so we should be able to make it if we're free.

19th / 20th August is likely* to coincide with the back end of the Anglo-Cambrian 3-litre Calibra lickers' return from a high-speed European road trip of unrestricted Autobahn sections, interesting WW2 locations and rude place names, so there's a good likelihood that we'll be passing Southernshire on our way home. Probably on ADAC / AA trucks.

To be honest, my summer is looking pretty crowded, so later in the year suits me better. Not that this should stop you having a gathering earlier, obviously!

You need to go to the Esso in Thame, where you shall be blindfolded, put into the back of an Ldv pilot then driven there in secret, then the same on the way home.

Its less than 5 miles from Buckingham for Google maps use!

Muddy SF16 coincided with Glasto I think, so all good porta-loos in England were there I guess. The one we had was a minger.

Whoever supplied the ones at the Welshfests did a very good job, they had the cleanest, least wretchworthy shit box I have ever experienced. Can you remember who they were, Ian?
