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.

Brilliant... late in for lunch I fired up an off-brand pot noodle and while carrying it to the lounge successfully spilled it all over myself, burned the piss out of my hand, soaked my phone with the juice, soaked a load of expense receipts I was also carrying and it hit the hall floor and just fucking exploded....it was literally dripping from the ceiling in my newly decorated hallway. The obvious and considered reaction was to throw an immediate, massive paddy and boot the fucker down the hall while screaming, which has made the whole scenario about 18 times worse.

That sounds like a swell venue. 

 

It's a long, long way from me but would make for a good adventure and I could probably make a bit of a week away of it. 

 

It would be quite a convoy from the Frozen North.

I'm even further away! Would still be up for it, though. I'd need two days' travel time each way though, so as not to over-stretch myself.

The venue sounds ideal.  Life/family issues mean I can't really plan stuff at the moment so fix a date and I'll come if I can!

I should be able to manage that. It would be good if the date was confirmed this year so I can bag the time off as soon as our holiday sheets are issued, which is the first day back after Christmas.

 

I think I might do the journey in two days as well. It's only 500 miles for me, but I might as well try to arrive in daylight.

We're a broad church. As long as you can look slightly uncomfortable, stomach square sausage, and talk utter nonsense with/without the aid of gallons of cider then you'll fit right in.

I've turned up on foot before, Hairnet uses odd two wheeled cars, AnthonyOG rocks the modern Jag look. It doesn't matter how you arrive.

I was only thinking yesterday that it's about time we had one down south, as I've not been to Cornwall or Devon for a few years. So a perfect excuse!

May or early June preferable for me, both to avoid clashing with holidays and also avoid cooking in the Stellar *too* much...
