Thanks to Doug who recce’d this site and with help set up the trials etc. This turned out to be an inspired choice of venue, our first time there, and our first time at a site providing such fun playthings as a see-saw and girder-bridge. The campsite was good, weather fine for the weekend itself, and everybody seemed to find the driving and challenges sufficient and good fun.
The Dodoka was brought by Pete, got plenty of use (and abuse no doubt) and John Morrill kindly agreed to drive it back to Cambs with an ailing clutch – he didn’t get half way, but stuck with the recovery – thanks John!
What was encouraging was the attendance (over 20) and the number of first timers to a Syncronaut meeting. It was particularly good to meet some of the Irish contingent for the first time and as touched upon in the intro, was obvious that a lot of work had gone into their Syncro campers.
Although Jenny and myself had recce’d some Oxfordshire lanes it proved too wet giving bad visibility. Those routes are still in the book…
