Evening activity will centre around Windermere as that worked well last year.

Spring Bank Holiday Weekend that is Mark…busy busy.

Of course you are right Phil. Maybe given that it is a known quantity we should keep it on the same weekend as this years then, 16th-17th?

That is likely to be a popular date in my opinion Mark - the weekend after the early May Day Bank Holiday weekend.

End of May is difficult for me due to a family wedding (hope to take my radio though for some foreign activations). I thoroughly enjoyed this year’s weekend and am sorry I can’t join you in person. Maybe catch some of you S2S though.

Good luck and enjoy…

Gigging in London - again!

Phil has very valid points about both dates.

OK, next try, what about the 6th and 7th of June? No bank holidays around.

Cheers, Mark.

How about 20th & 21st June summer solstice weekend?

I’ll check to see if there is anything significant on event wise for those dates.

20/21 June will do me very nicely!

If we do this on summer solstice someone is definitely going to have to pull an all-nighter. Looks like lots of people are considering this solstice as ‘special’, see this page for example.

June 2020 :+1:

Camping on a summit; only if my wife doesn’t come :wink:

Sounds good to me camping, radio, and birthday. May try to sort out a beam to do some SSB for the event.

As we have had no more input in terms of event clashes and the like I think we should set the weekend to the proposed date of 20th-21st June 2020.

Will be great to see everyone again.

You are Winston Smith and I claim my five pounds! :slight_smile:

Modifying the original proposal in-situ gets completely lost, I saw no notification of the change. I guess a few other people will be unaware and wont have commented either. Had I seen a notification, I’d have commented when you made the change.

For me, (hey and this is my point of view) that’s unsuitable. I already will be out of the UK 25th June - 2nd July for the Friedrichshafen Rally, then I’m back a few days and away for VHF field day 6-8th July. Now this would be another weekend away the week before. Can’t be done in my case. The dates in May are better.

Hi Andy

I thought it was fairly clear in the trail of messages below the immediate proposal about the changes in date. Changing the original post clarifies the proposed date to new readers, I was expecting the dialogue below to cover any changes.

I can’t see any other way of doing it other than a vote. I’m not precious about dates but clearly we do need to set one fairly early on to allow people to make travel arrangements.

Father’s Day. Fine by me. The chances of pleasing everyone are less than the chances of getting VK S2S during the event.
Thanks Mark
