New Forest & Solent - Camping Weekend - Church Farm, Sixpenny Handley, Wiltshire - 14th - 17th July 2022

1)   Thursday - Nothing planned. Arrive & chill out.
2)   Friday - Nothing planned. - Some members may wish to explore local greenlanes. - I can advise
3)   Saturday - Greenlane/Scenic Drive around Cranborne Chase & Dorset.
4)   Group BBQ Saturday night + Campfire.
5)   Sunday - Chill out/Pack up and bimble home.

The rest of the time we shall do as we feel which will mainly involve lazing around the campfire, drinking beer and perhaps looking under the bonnet of a few Land Rovers. Members are more than welcome to take themselves off for some gentle green laning localy if none of the above takes your fancy. Members also have the option to stay on the main campsite, although this will cost extra.

Rally Field Price: £17.50 per unit per night.
BBQ Price Per Person: £5 per person. 2 sausages and 1 burger per person.
Locally sourced from Sixpenny Handley Butchers.

A deposit will be required. Please see the booking form for details.

Thursday afternoon
Arrive, relax, chill out, perhaps sample some home brew.

Friday evening
Members are invited to bring along a cake/savoury/nibble of their choice. Ideally something a bit different to ensure we don't get too much of the same. Suggest attempting to make a cake using primary ingredients based on the first two letters of your postcode! Savouries/sandwiches/pies & healthy stuff are also welcome! Tea will be provided.

Campfire
If some of you could bring some wood that would be great. Like last year if everybody brings a few logs and or pallets etc then it helps greatly.
The more wood the better!

Greenlaning
Some of the lanes can be a bit scratchy because of the time of year.

Greenlaning  Groups
This year we are placing the emphasis of navigation more on you. It is desirable but not essential that you bring a copy of OS Explorer Map 118 with you. Groups of no more than 6 will be heading off at separate time intervals on the Saturday morning from 09:00. We welcome Navigators and Team Leaders to come forward.

Greenlaning  Restrictions
Quite a few lanes have height restrictions due to trees. Because of this any vehicle with a roof rack will not be suitable. I can advise you which lanes to avoid should this be a problem.
It is your responsibility to ensure that your battery is secure prior to greenlaning. Bits of the route are bumpy.

Greenlaning  Requirements
It is absolutely paramount that your four wheel drive system and low range gearbox are functional.  We have some fairly interesting hills to climb and descend.

Greenlaning  Navigation
It is desirable but not essential that you bring a copy of OS Explorer Map 118 with you.
I will have a marked up copy of OS MAP 118 with me for those who wish to take a copy of the route.
I have also mapped out the route on Ordnance Survey Getamap which means a week before the event I will be able to send an exported GPX file of the route for those of you who wish to upload it to your smartphone/GPS device.

Greenlaning  Additional Notes
Please note:  Because of the time of year some of these greenlanes will be overgrown.  Your Land Rover will experience scratching from foliage. I can advise you which lanes to avoid should this be a problem.

The 2022 booking form can be emailed to you.
If you are interested in coming along then please contact me ASAP so I can send it across.

The sooner I have an idea of numbers the better.

James, although I know your email, you haven't put it in this post for others (or at least I can't see it!)!

Looking forward to this.

Thanks for the forms all.

Some good news too... We are pressing apples and making cider again this year, which means I should have a good supply for SPH next year.  :-X

I'm not wrong, it's just a different point of view.
