Title: Font '11 - Bouldering in France - 24th-31st August
Post by: Novelty Matt on July 04, 2011, 10:18:19 AM
Can bus people meet at Danger Jons at 8.30 Wednesday please, we need to leave ASAP!

Can bus people please pay me DIRECTLY £50, this will cover ferry and camping.  Everyone else who's coming can you wire me £5/night you're camping please.  My bank details are here....if you don't know don't worry.  

http://www.surreyclimbs.co.uk/forum/index.php?topic=4868.0

Please buy your insurance from the BMC -you'll want Rock cover

www.thebmc.co.uk/insurance


The August bank holiday weekend is raising it's lovely head in about 6 weeks time so it's time to start thinking about Font

What is it?  A mega bouldering trip in the warmth of France, if you don't like bouldering you'll like Font, it's social and doable.  It's sandstone, but it's nice sandstone so don't let that put you off either!  The sun will be booked.

Where? We stay at this campsite, and then drive to the crags

http://www.camping-grez-fontainebleau.info/caravanning.html

When?  Hopefully we'll have a couple of 9 seaters going for 24th-31st August subject to numbers, if we can get loads of people wanting to go for longer we can extend it.  People also go for the long weekend 25/26th-29th if they can't get the time off work etc.

Rough costs?

Ferry: ~£15
Petrol: ~£45 (by bus)
Camping: ~£5 per night
Insurance: ~£20

You'll also need to factor in food and booze, but you do tend to consume this if not on holiday.

Post below if you're interested and how long you'd like to go for!

And stuff you don't need to worry about but I'll loose otherwise!

I'll be taking my bus too, currently a two seater but it should be a four seater by the time this happens. Lou has one space and I'm seeing if there is anyone else from craggy that might like to come too and/or I can fill it up with club peoples.

Think I'll be coming for full week...

What's the difference between "Undecided (but coming)...." and "An undisclosed length of time"?  They sound like the same thing to me!  :P

Post by: Novelty Matt on July 05, 2011, 11:11:50 AM
I think Dunc knows how long he's coming for (but I don't), plus I probably won't need to sort out.

Also are you happy to drive a bus of justice Marc?
Title: Re: Font '11 - Bouldering in France - 24th-31st August
Post by: Weeman on July 05, 2011, 11:12:13 AM
Because Duncan has decided that he is going for an undisclosed length of time. The others are undecided about everything.

Post by: Novelty Matt on August 01, 2011, 07:36:41 PM
Have updated the first post, all people on bus list could you wire me £50 to cover camping and ferry.  If you're camping with us it should hopefully still be £5/night again, pay now before I find out it's wrong and don't have to make the difference up out of my own pocket!

Alex hopefully I'll get to have a chat tomorow but the bus got full, hopefully someone else will be going for a similar period of time we can squeeze you in with -shall keep you posted hopefully...

I am going to go from Thursday night (25th) to Tuesday night (30th).

Jo has the same time off so we're probably going to go in her car unless mine is fixed or replaced by then.

If anyone wants a lift on those dates let one of us know

Quick note if you're booking the ferry under those names at the front, you should probably change my name to Espen, but I'm sure it's not a big deal to them anyway. Also, I gave Dave £50 on Tuesday, so I should be good.

Renew it? You don't need to wait for the actual card. Takes a second online.

Just a warning that the gas bottles for the camping stoves are apparently empty. I took a quick look in John's cupboard a few weeks ago but didn't really know what to look for. Is this the sort of thing they need?

If they are then I might be able to buy some and bring them to Guildford on the weekend. Otherwise it may be better to buy some when you get there as the stoves are from France anyway. Anyone know?
Cheers, hope you have a good trip :D

changing the gas has always been cheapest in a supermarket in france for me.  don't do it over here if you can avoid it.

OK, thanks for the info. I'm not actually going but as equipment officer it was my job I guess. Sounds like people need to refill them at Font.

Can bus people meet at Danger Jons at 8.30 Wednesday please, we need to leave ASAP!

We won't be stopping for food, the ferry will sell this, as will the services we have the pleasure of frequenting in France, or bring some snacky-snacks with you!

I'd be up for joining a last minute trip if you go with that plan.

Thanks Matt for organising and running such a great trip. Thanks everyone else for making it such fun.

I went to the GP and then A&E today about my arm and neck / head- I have to wear a wrist splint for the next twelve days at least, so no climbing (or one armed climbing) for me for while unfortunately. I guess it could have been much worse.

Just so people know I'll be at climbing on Tuesday, I think I'll be hiding behind the desk all night so you can give me cash then!
