    .... Carousing optional

    I've booked Consiton Coppermines YHA, from 4pm Friday 1st March - midday Sunday 3rd March 2013. It'll make a change from Black Sail

    We have exclusive use of the hostel. - 26 beds (3 x 4 bunks, 1 x 6 and 1 x 8). More info about the hostel here

    I'm pricing it on the basis that we'll get 20 people so it'll cost you £26 per personfor the two nights to stay indoors. Up to six more people are welcome to stay too - they will pay the same and the extra money will create a curry fund

    For the price you get a bunk, bed linen & use of the facilities. It doesn't guarantee you the comfy chair closest to the stove, free whisky, a parking space & a win at dominoes or backgammon, but there is a chance

    For camping, I'm told there is a bit of space outside the hostel if you want to be close, but it would be an idea to leave your stuff indoors during the day. No charge unless you want full use of the facilities... we can negotiate about that later

    Payment will be required by 12th January which will confirm your place. If you drop out after you've paid, you will need to arrange a replacement - I won't issue a refund but will help you find a sub.

    The provisional list is below, copied from the earlier thread. All welcome, please add your name if interested.

    Whoo hoo

    1. Milly me.
    2. Little Miss Maria
    3. Mini Mal
    4. Glenn
    5. Skip (representing pensioner power)

    I see there is a slef catering kitchen. Just out of interest, are there any slefs coming on the meet?

    I copied it across from the 'interested in Skiddaw' list. Is this one too close to home for you, Paddy?

    I've been away for the weekend and didn't realise things had changed.

    The Coppermines hostel is certainly easier to get to... I could walk there from where I live in a few hours.

    It's a long way from Skiddaw House though... two hefty days of walking if you hadn't pointed out the change of venue!

    HI folks, just come across this thread, it seems about time that I actually made an effort to meet up with some fellow OMers.

    I notice the YHA is full up so can I be considered as a stand by to replace any drop outs? Either that or I could opt to be a cool camper - providing theres adequate space for car tent ie. one too big for a backpack!

    I walked/ran past that place so many times over the years and always fancied staying there. Thanks so much, Mills for transferring (shunting?) me in
