    Some people are already at the hotels, so cancelling entirely isn't really an option at this stage.

    I'm sure several people will be there at some point next weekend too/instead, regardless of whether or not that becomes a "meet". Myself, for example.

    I am going to give this weekend a miss due to the weather, but hope everyone who attends has a good time and a safe journey.

    I’m afraid that because it was me to suggest it, it won’t happen

    This. I'm planning on traveling to Towers tomorrow morning and having a good laugh before heading home. However I am sure that there will be some form of meet next Saturday/Sunday so that we can all enjoy Wicker Man together!

    :)

    In view of the weather, we'll be having a Wicker Man Meet Take 2 on Saturday, 24th March.

    We'll meet outside Splash Landings at 8.45am sharp.

    Can't make next week as I'm going on holiday on Tuesday (which will be fab, so I must stop whinging!!)
    Nice having a brief catch-up and getting turfed off the lawn today and even a mooch around Sealife beats hanging around bored at home :)

    I did a little bit of a write-up, if anyone's interested :)
    (Sorry, but C&Ping the photo links would take ages!)

    They turfed you off the lawn? What on earth were you doing? Or was this some crazy H&S codswallop, even though snow covered grass is less slippery than snow covered pavement?

    Walking on frozen grass can damage it for months.
    Snapped roots, browned blades, increased risk of fungal infections and red thread.
    ...and you might start playing on it, throwing snowballs and getting all naughty.

    Walking on frozen paths can damage you for months.
    Snapped bones, brown bruises, increased risk of fungal infections and red blood.
