    Understandable and a great shame. Perhaps a few of us can meet up in small groups? At least we will have the virtual meet.

    That's a shame. Hoping to make the virtual meetup this year.

    Stay safe, y'all.

    I enjoyed it last yr. It was nice to see other people I've been seeing on here. I was hoping to be moved in and unpacked by that time but HR threw me a curve so now all my stoves and lanterns will remain packed away till Sept. Looking forward to participating again this yr.

    Hi @Spiritburner
    That's a great shame. I wonder what constitutes "a gathering"? I note that the Camping Club are opening their England sites wef earliest opening date will be the 12th of April (without facilities). Campers will need to have their own self-contained toilet facilities. Looks like facilities should then open from 17th of May at the earliest. Not sure what their District Associations are doing in respect of "group camps/rallies, though.
    What is to stop a number of people with a common interest from pitching up at a camp site for a weekend? Would it be possible to roll it forward a few weeks?

    Nothing. Sites may be open from 12 April but social distance rules will apply. I can't arrange the gathering on that basis but nothing to stop people camping at any venue under whatever rules apply

    I'm unable to commit beyond the current date unfortunately.
