    Just an idea for a G2G during the centenary - a G2G held on Brownsea Island. I was thinking that I'd really like to go during teh centenary, then thought it might make a good location for a G2G!

    I'm off to Brownsea island this weekend for the centenary launch. I'm really looking forward to it as it's been in my diary since before launch weekend was announced! You could have come with us Jenn!

    I'd be up for this.

    Would have come to G2G4 but wasn't sure where I would be living or anything so didn't like to commit!!

    Yeah, I know, but when you first announced it, I didn't really want to commit to anything at the time. Plus I start my first teaching job on Monday, so don't want to go too far from home... Stafford will do nicely!

    I got invited to go camping with my Ranger unit from home, but even though that is only 100 miles away, I still didn't want to risk getting stranded anywhere...

    I had this in my diary too but never got round to say yes to go there this weekend! As I wasn't 100% sure what my husband was going to do as he was thinking of going to Gilwell Reunion too!

    Anyway I recently visited Brownsea Island last Friday and we had a good day out there. Hope you get nice weather this weekend!

    Sounds good fun - me too if it's a week-end. I'd be happy to take a car full from this area (there's quite a few of us on here!) to share costs / keep costs low!
