I'm really looking forward to it. Some of the trips are rare opportunities, and the lectures look great.

Plus the free drinks on Saturday night for early bookers means I've already booked my place! Big Grin

Goodness me, the bookings are coming in thick and fast, which is excellent.

There are now additional spaces available on the trips which were already fully booked - namely The White Cliffs of Dover and Bedlams Far East trips, so if you were disappointed, go back and amend your booking to get a space. We can lay on more trips if the numbers continue to come in at this level, so don't fret.

Looking forward to seeing so many familiar and new faces.

I notice that there is a hog roast - I hope you have better luck than we did in 2007 when our hog roaster dropped dead on us. IP: 86.136.235.33

Poor fellow.

The resulting BBQ alterative was very good though!

Very kind of you to say so. Have you managed to blag delegate number 1 this year?

Just a couple of weeks left to take advantage of the early bird booking discount for the NAMHO Conference 2017, in Godstone, Surrey over the weekend of 23-26th June 2017.

Book by the end of February to enjoy the delegate discount rate and enjoy free drinks on the Saturday night ! Yup, that's right, free drinks!

Places are filling up fast, so book now to join us for a lively and exciting weekend of underground trips, lectures and social events, hosted by the Wealden Cave & Mine Society, in their 50th anniversary year.

There is plenty of b&b-type accommodation nearby, but the camping field for our exclusive use will be supplied with hot showers, decent loos, various marquees for phone charging, the gala dinner, sitting, the band, trade stands, all sorts of good stuff.

Get your booking in by the end of the month for the discount and free drinks.

Hello

There are two options for the celebration dinner. Hog roast with all the trimmings and pud, or a vegetarian option with all trimmings and pud.

The NAMHO conference is coming soon, and we're really looking forward to welcoming delegates to the South East. We're all ready and have our fingers crossed for fine weather.

I just wanted to let everybody in the London, Kent, Surrey and Sussex areas know that both the Starless River equipment shop and Moore Books will be there with us for the weekend.

This is a rare opportunity to collect things locally, so if there's something particular you'd like them to bring with them for you to look at, please contact them in advance to ensure they put one in their vans. Tony and Ursula of Starless River say especially if you want wellies or Etche canyon boots, advance notice is good to get the right sizes. And you can save postage costs on Mike's books by ordering in advance and nipping over to near junction 6 of the M25 to collect them.

Anyway, their websites are: http://www.moorebooks.co.uk/ and http://www.starlessriver.com/shop/ or you can click their logos on right of this post!
