That looks a nice camp site Stefan with a bar. I am tempted but not keen on packing up sat eve after the event to re set up at the wishing well. If others do it, then I could be persuaded for a night on the lash.

I have looked at the wishing well b and b and the rooms are £65 or £75 if shared inc breakfast. There are some still available to book on line but may need to sort this quickly. I am up for staying, have a couple of beers and meal. I am also up to visiting Lincolnshire Road Transport Museum on the Sunday before heading home.

I've just booked in to the Wishing Well both nights, £55/night. Hopefully I won't be knobby-no-mates on Saturday!

I have booked Saturday at the inn which looks nice and should be a good night.

Looks like Lincolnshire is awash with car museums and history….the Bubble Car Museum is 45mins from Bourne.

The bubblecar museum look a great venue for the Sunday. I'm sure they would appreciate a collection of CK's in their car park, might get a free entry? cheers, Geoff

I should be there by 6pm on the Friday if I do a full day at work. Is there a time when we can get there and start setting up?

I am booked in for the Saturday night at the pub. Are we all meeting there for a bite and a pint?
I am really looking forward to this meeting having given up trying to finish the Beast for Brooklands, too much to do on it and I cut my finger quite badly yesterday. The Beast will be with me for the trial though!

You should have received an email with information from VST.

I'll send out info nearer the time once everything has been confirmed with the organisers and the venue.   We are finalising the details of an uphill display sprint of about 250m for cyclekarts on a road next to the castle and just by the main arena.   A hillclimb is over stating it, but it should be a bit fun.
