After much site checking, ridiculing and general chaos, we’re pleased to announce that G2G9 East Midlands will be taking place on 11th-13th May 2012 at Drum Hill Scout Campsite in Derbyshire. We are able to offer 36 places* at a cost of £40 per person for the weekend. Payment details will be released at the same time as your booking information. Drum Hill is a beautiful site and we will get the benefits of a patio area and altar fire, as well as access to the site’s free activities – the assault course and low ropes – in addition to ones offered at an extra charge. The organisers who visited the site fell in love with its facilities and, just as importantly, its badge! But no venue is perfect and we, unfortunately, did have to make compromises. Although these compromises don’t include coffin bunks, the venue only has five 8-bed rooms* with no “leader accommodation”. The site staff have kindly agreed to let Ben sleep on a camp bed in the store room so that we are not restricting places but this does, however, mean that we are currently unable to offer places to male members of the forum. To give everyone a fair chance of getting a place, even if they only visit the forum once a week, we are posting the information now, but we will not release the email address or payment details until 7th November. Any PMs, emails on a personal account, carrier pigeons or flying squirrels that we receive in the meantime will be discarded. I hope you’re all as excited as we are! TJ, Ben, Emma and Hannah * I'm not going mad. There are 40 beds, 4 organisers and 1 QM. Therefore, there are 36 beds available!
