As we got to the top of the hills the sun started to shine but the wind was still cold.After a few miles one of our main stars realised he had lost his camera and went back to try to find it, which luckily he did(told not to mention his name so done worry Looi i wont say it was you).we eventually got to our lunch time stop and had a nice cuppa at the cafe.Having warmed up and fully refueled we were ready for the rest of the walk. We set of torches at the ready incase it got dark.Having climbed a few large bolders as all kids do on the way,we eventually got back to the car park and said our goodbyes. A great days walk organised by Rachel.

Norfolk BBQ 16-September-2006 Submitted by Adminton
The weather was good for us. Cooking and eating seemed to go in many phases, but Penfolds Lamb just had to go on at exactly the right time, I don't think he planned for it to be Smoked Lamb! Some one decided to have a Hairy Leg competition, so the wax virgins lined up with a very FAB pair of legs to show them how it should be done. Looks like someone was a bit confused when they got dressed that morning though. The Naughty cupboard was put to a lot of use although Garfiled appears to have enjoyed his punishment !!!!! All in all a fun day and evening.

Even the poor waitress got dragged into taking photo's of us all! After the meal it was off to yet another pub for drinks (thanks to Geebabyrabbit for organising the venues for the drinks). On the Sunday most of us met up again at lunchtime for a delicious BBQ at Twinkle's house. Shep and Trees had fun in the garden putting up the Gazebo, whilst Coffeelover helped out with all the food preparation and tidied and washed up afterwards (she was a star!) Shep entertained everyone with his practical demonstration of how to "tickle" a fly! Much fun and laughter was had by all!

"Another very successful meet! JanInAVan held a camping weekend in her field, with BBQ on Saturday night 22 July 2006. What a lovely setting, rolling hills and a beautiful pond (we soon got used to the sound of the M42). It was so hot when we arrived but got to it straight away, putting up tents and preparing for the fun - although Jan had worked so hard and had everything under control - thanks so much Jan. As soon as someone arrived there were lots of willing helpers for which we are all very grateful. A battle ensued as to who could pump up their airbeds the fastest. The guys were doing the macho thing and using their brawn, they won but the girls had technology on their side and quietly let them think they won whilst taking a siesta as the compressor did the work! Friday evening was spent down the local pub and then round the imaginary camp fire (it was too dry to risk it). Chatting, giggling and drinking till we all fell into out tents (or over the guide ropes). Saturday saw the arrival of more members. New friends made and acquaintances re-kindled. Football matches and more siestas. Then the fun began in the evening, great food, music (or cheese as it was described), dancing - oh the dancing - best thing I've seen in ages, the aeroplane dance to the Dambusters! Lots more giggling, drinking and frolicking, all done in the best possible taste. We all had a fantastic time and are very grateful to Jan for hosting this. Lets have another!" Thanks go to Polly for some of the photos and to Sophis2cat for sending in more piccies and the terrific write-up!

"What a mad time we had. The theme was Saints and Sinners - but we had more Sinners than Saints. Great costumes, the photo of Bright Spark in his naughty schoolgirl outfit flashing to the train is the most comical thing I've seen in ages. Good job the train was on a rail or the driver - who obliged by sounding his horn - could have been put off his driving, he was most likely put off his dinner. It was sad that the Host, Tall Trees was injured and in hospital but Kate did us proud with lots of lovely food. We drank his health and his ale! Get well soon Mike.

A two-dayer, organised by Steve and Penny, took place over the weekend of 28th and 29th May. On the Saturday we went to the White Hart is Bagshot, Surrey, for some food, drink, and conversation. Many people stayed over, and the following day we all met up again, in nearby Virginia Water. A good few more folks arrived as well. Our Sunday morning stroll was followed by lunch in the Wheatsheaf pub, where the afternoon sort of melted away! A great time was had by all. Some of the folks present included were Stephen, vinny, penny1, Immpy, capricorn lady, Susan, Leyson, LAFF A LOT, Jay, Historiban, Solstice. And I'm sorry if there are people I haven't mentioned!

Henrys Bar London 8-Jan-2005 Submitted by Adminton
A meeting of like-minded Midsummer's Eve lads and lasses took place on 8th Jan in central London. Near the Ritz, no less - we're that posh. Henry's is the kind of place where your pint of bitter is presented to you on a serviette and your change comes back on a little silver tray. See you at the next event everyone! :-)

The Postern Gate York 4-Jun-2005 Submitted by Adminton
A bunch of about 25 Midsummer's Eve members and friends congregated in the beautiful city of York, at the Wetherspoons Postern House pub in Piccadilly. A rumbunctious time was certainly had by all. The prize for furthest distance travelled went to "jive time" who came all the from Weymouth in Dorset for the event. Some hardy folk even went onto for some after-hours dancing and fun. Whew! A big hello and thankyou to Leyson for organising this one (and others). Photos were taken and kindly sent in by Kolocat, jive time and spiritOfAdventure.
