Chatroom Meeting

We're trying something new!.. On Monday 18th at 8pm we are trying to get as many of us who are attending this meet to turn up in NaturalBushcraft's Chatroom to discuss the event; talk about stuff we can take and try at the meet, just creating ideas and discussion so that people can think about what they might bring with them. So at 8pm on Mon 18th, we're meeting in the chatroom which you can find in the top-left corner on the menu, or click here. You need to be logged in before you can access the chatroom. Don't be shy, pop along and say hello, its great fun having a yak! Wink
