I'm not, and I'm not currently aware of any plans???

I've left the Cotswolds now as I've started a new job elsewhere, but I'm not too far away and I'll be back over the Christmas and Twixmas period.

OK, thought I would see if I can set an AL route with a bonus round our village and have the Event at our village hall.

As Christmas falls on a weekend this year, the bank holidays are on Mon 27th and Tues 28th December. So, I would plan the Event for one of those days at the hall. The main hall is spacious and airy and has a good kitchen for hot drinks or warming mince pies, plenty of parking as well  :)

What do we think (if anyone is listening)?

I'm waiting on HQ to reactivate my second AL but I'm hopeful they will, I do have a fall back plan so there will be a/some new cache/s.

The Monday or Tuesday is easy for me, so I can do either.

Our village hall has recently had a Covid measures inspection by our local County Council and were impressed, which is good  :)

I'll start putting the Event page together, ready for publishing very soon. So any more comments for any one ..... any one?

Sounds good - just one query, what is an AL route?

Does your village hall allow dogs in? We can't leave geopup Pickle alone for the length of time of a Twixmas event.

It would be good to catch up with friends after so long. Jenny

AL route - Adventure Lab route.

The village hall does allow dogs in the main hall only, which is the one I'll be booking :)

Thanks for the info Walktall - we were being a bit thick!

We hope to make it [ Tuesday 28th would be best for us], though family arrangements are still being planned!

Have an Adventure Lab credit, so started building the AL. The walk will be round the village on good paths and will be about 4 miles, about an hours walk. It can be very windy up here, sitting on top of a hill at 220m. I would like to place a physical bonus cache as well, so looking for a suitable location that the kids will leave it be.

As the 28th is the prefered date, I will make the event this date, starting at 10am till 1pm, this will give time for the optional walk, plus plenty of time for chatting in the hall afterwards, unless people feel they want longer?

Event listing posted to Reviewers  :)

While creating it, I decided to have the walk start at 10am, meeting up at 9:45am and the Event from 11am to 1:30pm, all this on the 28th December. This is a Community Celebration Event as well as a CacheWalker Twixmas Event  :)
