Flags are these coordinates from the same source of the Germany trip ones? If so I'll keep a look out for stray buggies in Southampton

And I`ll keep the kettle on down here just in case  ::)

Just added the route to Google Maps and sent to my phone. Looks like a good one. ;-)up ;-)up


In case we do get late joiners and missing folks (which is very unlikely with this one) I suggest that several of us switch Glympse on and share our location as usual too.  ;-)up

All I can say about that is at least it was in the right country!

Dave, you'll be fine, as a rule of thumb.... follow the other 30-40 beach buggies!  ;-)up ;D ;D ;D

IBW proved you can all end up in the same place at different times after taking a wide variety of routes when travelling in a convoy. However as we later found out it may have kept us legal and fine free.
We all got there and all got back just saw different scenery

I think I have cracked it I set my navigator coordinates up properly and they all seem to work I've just walked to the football club so I even know where that is now

All I have to do is find somewhere to wash the car it's bloody filthy after the car park at the Tank Museum

Looking at the forecast for Friday the buggy will get washed on route

Not like you Keith to be as pessimistic as this. Friday's rain is going to arrive in Swanage just after we park up at the football pitch.

And the stuff forecast for Sunday afternoon is going to chase us north !

Spoke to the Club head honcho earlier and we have good news.

Our Top DJ Jazzy and his No.1 assistant have been given the all clear for the whole shebang.

The scheduled Match for Saturday has been cancelled and the toilets have been cleaned (yea I'll believe that when I see it)

The Buffet is sorted for the Disco and breakfast is booked.

On my side.....

The Disco/Buffet is a ticketed event, you can grab these when paying for camping or collecting your T Shirts, camping prices are the same as previous years £6 per night for adults, £2.50 per night for kids and under 5's go free. With anyone that is staying for the clean-up getting Sunday night free (means that you help cleaning up). 

NO chemical toilets that have been used for anything but liquid are to be emptied into the club toilets as they just cannot cope as we found out the hard way!

Please keep your camping areas small, if you want to put up party shelters or gazebo type structures please do not be offended if the camping police request there removal to fit in tents.

Tents have priority over camper vans on the flat grassed areas and motor homes are in the car park.

Dogs are welcome but please keep them off the pitch.

Cruise leaves at 1100 (route on page 5) if anyone is going to be slightly late this may slip but not by much.

There will be a small prize for the best fancy dress on Saturday and if you’re up for it wear them on Sunday for the Carnival too.

Up to you but I was planning for T shirts on the cruise?

Show us what you've got will be on Sunday starting from 1030 and all buggy drivers will need to register if you want to vote.

I'll be there to take the facilities over from 1400 on Thursday so see you all from1430 onwards.

It's looking like I'm going to have to work Friday and leave here at about 3am Saturday to arrive in time for breakfast. Can anyone tell me exactly where the campsite is please? Is it at the football club?
Who needs prozac when you can drive a buggy?

Don`t Google the Football Club, as the address often takes you to a house round the back -

Head for De Moulham Road, drive into the long term car park at the end, and as it dogs legs round to the left, drive through the small gap in the wall
