As I posted a while back the venue I can arrange is Cheriton Fitzpaine Football Club (close to EX17 4HB) just off the A3072 from Tiverton to Crediton, about 10 miles out of Exeter. Not quite as remote as Saabnut's but out in the sticks. It is far enough away from houses that we shouldn't be causing aggravation.
June seems to be clear of both bank and school holidays so the motorways heading south should be as manageable as they ever are. So, any chance of getting a concensus on which weekend it should be? Can someone more IT adept than me put up a poll for this?
The FA cup is on 18th May so the local football season should be finished and if the date is decided well in advance we can get it blocked off so we don't get allocated a home game that day if the season over runs.
It seems probable that the village maidens won't be having their 50th birthdays party at the Football Club, and the birthday of the the maiden who is a Club Committee member is in August.
Going on attendance at SFs 17 and 18 there should be enough room for hard standing parking with overflow onto the 5-a-side area where tents can be. The Club house has toilets, showers, bar (£2.80/pint at the moment, but mostly lager as that is what footballers swill down their necks) and kitchen (this subject to the kitchen ladies being happy about the use of "their" domain).
Suggested £5 a night per car.
Local attractions: the farm shop down the road for the all day breakfast; Sandford Orchards for cider; Moretonhampstead Motor Museum for adventuring down single track roads to get there,
I can guarantee there will be no midges, and I'm reasonably confident that June is horse fly free.
