Thread: North West/North Wales 8th August meet.

  1. #1

    North West/North Wales 8th August meet.

    Hi People
    I will be holding a meet on Fri 8th August, running until Sunday afternoon.
    The location is Flintshire North Wales. The site is fantastic. A huge mixed woodland, which hasn't been managed, rather, left to its own accord. It's wild but wonderful.
    There is a stream running through, so while water procurement is possible, it is still advised that you bring your own.
    As its my first meet at this location, I'm keeping the numbers reasonable.
    12 person limit. All are welcome. I'm hopeing for some of the Northern Soul Bushcraft Group, and North Wales bushcrafters, will come. You've made me feel very welcome at your meets, id very much like to repay your hospitality.
    RULES.
    #1 If you pack it in. Pack it out.
    #2 Please act in a manner, that you would expect from me, on property that you are responsible for.
    #3 Enjoy yourself.
    Look forward to seeing you fireside.

    SATURDAY TIME PLAN. ( for me, you can do as you wish )
    Not being regimental, this is so i can commit a set amount of time, to different activities and not leave regretting that i never done, such and such.

    11am. WOOD WALK
    Not so much a plant identification, more for you to learn the landmarks and be able to find your way back to base camp, should you go exploring.

    1pm. ARCHARY
    Any one not doing Archary at this time, PLEASE ensure that you are accompanied by TWO members. One either side of the range as spotters.

    2pm FIRE-CRAFT ( talk and demonstration )
    A chance to learn or improve our fire-craft. I will show 10 different ways to start a fire. Anyone hopeing to achieve fire by friction or improve their technique, should enjoy.

    3pm. SHELTER. ( simple lean too )
    We may say it takes half an hour, and while we are enjoying ourselves makeing it, it may feel like, half an hour. The simple fact is to find a spot, gather wood and erect a simple lean too, takes over an hour. Let's give ourselves two.


    6pm. GROUP MEAL
    I will cook a group meal. It will be a stew/curry. Kebabs and salad. The rest of the time it's self service.



    DISCLAIMER
    Anybody attending the meet, does so on the complete understanding, that neither i or the landowner will accept liability or responsibility, for any accidents or injuries incurred attending the meet, or partaking in the above activities.

    He who says "he can" and he who says "he can't", are both usually right.

    There is pleasure in the pathless woods, There is a rapture on the lonely shore, There is society, where none intrudes,
    By the deep sea, and music in its roar, I love not man the less, but Nature more.
