Pines on Tour Success
Last weekend’s successful visit by Gloucestershire based Pines Outdoor Club was graced with some really warm weather and very little rain during the Saturday fortunately. Our upper camping field was populated with tents of all shapes and sizes, and there was even a decent sized marquee/gazebo erected to provide an extra modicum of cover should the heavens have decided to open up on everybody! The club was alive with smiling faces as the boule pistes took a hammering and the 60′ heated outdoor pool lived up to expectations. Saturday evening was brought to life by Pine’s member Dick renowned in The Forest and on the folk circuit as a singer/songwriter and story teller. Revellers enjoyed Dick’s musings until the early hour, when finally the rain kicked in and brought an end to the outdoor proceedings.
Sunday saw the sun shine again and this gave the visitors plenty of opportunity to dry off their tents and make sure that they were packed up clean and dry for the journey home. We really enjoyed your company and would welcome you all back again whenever you fancy making that pilgrimage out of “The Forest” (but just don’t mention the bears again, ok?)
