Well, we're back from the (seriously excellent!) Spring Gathering which means it must be time to plan the Autumn one! For those who haven't attended one of these weekend bashes before, most of us usually assemble on the evening of the Friday for food, ale, a chat and a look at people's prints. The Saturday is generally spent wandering around the locale doing a bit of shooting at whatever takes our fancy. The Saturday evening is generally used as an excuse for more food, more ale, more chat and more prints, whilst the Sunday usually involves a bit more shooting until people make their farewells and head for home. It's a formula which has served us well in the past, the atmosphere is always very relaxed and informal and a good time is generally had by all! Previous venues have been the Lake District, Wiltshire, the Yorkshire Dales, Norfolk and Herefordshire. Nominations left over from the last selection process are Canterbury and Northumberland. At the last Gathering, John (pyrometol) had another suggestion which I'll let him put on this thread himself. Geographically-speaking, we seem to have visited the North of England a couple of times and each side once, so there is a case for saying that the next Gathering should be in the south. However, all suggestions are welcome! Whoever ends up organising this one, you've got a tough act to follow!
