Hi All, i'm looking at campsite in the Dartmoor area for the Bovey Tracey weekend now it's NEXT YEAR. Would be shame not to do anything now we all have a free weekend. Come back to me with your thoughts and interest.

Abs and I are definitely up for this. It would be nice to have a social get-together and maybe a bit of sword training.

According to Tom Aldwinckle Tiverton Castle is worth a visit for 17th century arms and armour:

Quote:
If you happen to be in Devon at anytime then take a look at Tiverton Castle ( only open a couple of times a week) as the owner is a collector of original 17thC arms and armour. You can get really up close to the pieces as they aren't in glass cases or so high on the walls you can't see any real detail, he's also quite happy to come out of his private apartment and talk about his collection and the ECW itself. When Rusty and I went we had a lock in after the official closing times and were allowed to handle items and take photos for our own archives.


It might be worth getting in touch and seeing if we could arrange a regimental trip(?)

Afraid we're unlikely to eb there. We get back form Cyprus on the Wed/Thursday before - the free weeekend will probably be spent cleaning and the like (p'raps it's a good thing for us that BT is NEXT YEAR!)
