Font '11 - Bouldering in France - 24th-31st August
« 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.

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.

Put me down as undecided for now. I'll find out how much time I have closer to Font.

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

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?

Because Duncan has decided that he is going for an undisclosed length of time. The others are undecided about everything.

Ah, I see the subtlety!

Intelligent thinking with the small print Matt :) You've forgotten to include bread and pastries in your costing. I'd say around £15 a day :D

Lol, as opposed to the cost of wine ~€2 a day ;)
