Hi, I’ve not heard anything from the committee as to Shuttleworth 2017 happening again or not, but after speaking to Lewis Onions at last years event it was decided that I could contact Abbotsholme school and see what the position is to going there again in 2017 as long as it wasn’t the third weekend of August which is the normal gathering weekend. This I have done and I have provisionally booked the 11th to the 13th of August 2017. This will allow those who do not want to travel too far from up north to attend Abbotsholme and if Shuttleworth does go ahead then those down south do not have to travel all the way to Abbotsholme. No it will not please everyone if there are two events but you cannot please everyone and the biggest moan I’ve heard is the travelling. It may work having possiably two events but it may not, who knows unless we try it. The next Yowl will have more details, cost etc. Or if someone else has a better idea please feel free to voice your opinion. The second biggest moan that has been voiced several times is the lateness of advising on events so I tried to get an answer for the October Yowl but didn’t receive confirmation until the end of October, it is in the December edition.
Now you have the dates to plan for Abbotsholme 11th 12th and 13th August 2017 if this is where you would like to go. I hope to see most of you there.
