Entries done and campsites arranged this week
Seems to be the usual lakes event good mix of venues and terrain- here’s to some decent weather up there!
I’ve booked my accommodation. This will be my 3rd Lakes week, if I make it there. The last two were very good
Yep campsites are booked and looking forward to it. I took the family to one at least ten years ago and enjoyed the mix of technical mountain and forest areas. The areas this year move from north to south so have gone for two sites.

The next deadline before the price goes up again is the end of this month!
I am now planning to go Any suggestions for campsites?
It should be a good week We have booked into club sites at Keswick and Coniston it may be worth contacting the event team for recommendations, they’ll have the local knowledge and may be in the process of arranging a site.
Thanks Brian - all sorted now. 2 nights camping, a night in a lake-side pub/hotel, then 3 more nights camping.
