Tan-Y-Garth, 24th-25th February

Post by DavidPonting »

We have 20 places available on the alpine bunks in this forest-girt hut on the outskirts of Capel Curig in glorious Snowdonia! Moel Siabod out the back of the hut, a short drive to any of the three main mountain ranges of Snowdonia - Snowdon massif, Glyderau and Carneddau are all within striking distance.

The hut is one of our favourites for this time of year, with a comfy lounge and roaring fire, a pub showing the Six Nations (Wales-England... 8) ) just down the road for those cheeky post-walk pints, and a kitchen perfect for cooking a big communal meal in!

Booking opens on the 24th January (details here viewtopic.php?t=6575), and post up below for psyche, lift shares (please share as much as possible and in small cars only; there are some close-spaced trees to squeeze between and a relatively small car park) and communal meal ideas

Updated post with the first-day signups - still places available, get keen!

Communal meal thoughts - does anyone have a favourite theme, or one we haven't done for a while?

Italian?

On the subject of cars - just how many spaces are there?

Can we please try and get more than 2 people (and DEFINITELY no instance of only one person) in each vehicle this time please?

I'd be happy to drive again, can offer 4 pax from Leeds area.

On food, I'm happy to do my Sweet Potato Dhal enough to feed everyone. It's veggie/vegan too, but tasty enough for the carnivores!

There will in fact be a ballot tonight - there are now more people signed up than places... The places of those who signed up before today are safe; those that signed up today can find out who got the last space by logging in to the website after midnight; I'll update this thread when I wake up!

As there will be a reserve list, can those that have spaces please pay up ASAP if you haven't already done so.

Hi David,

I've just withdrawn my place so please give it to Ben.

I may come over and hang out but stay at the CC hut if that's ok? or could I go on a reserve list in case a space frees up.

that's really kind of you Will, thanks! Coming over and staying at the CC hut and hanging out would be fine, as would going on the reserve list for this meet - your call.

In the interests of tasting Ben's Sweeet Potato Dhal and the absence of any concrete offers for Italian, I'm going to propose Indian as the theme.

So we need (and open to other suitable ideas) - anyone who hasn't replied yet, volunteers for poppadoms, rice and puddings would be awesome:

Poppadoms
Chutneys - JR
Rice
naaaaansss [sic] - Maddie
kachumba salad - Dave C
An assortment of curries:
1) Sweet potato dhal - Ben
2) Lamb curry with plums - David
3) Halloumi and butternut squash curry - Graham M
4) Aloo Gobi or something - Tom
5) Chickpea curry - Harriet

Pudding 1 - tiramisu - John
Pudding 2 - caterpillar cake - Huw
Pudding 3

Who's in for food?
Ben
David
John
? Huw (maybe just for pudding!)
Graham
JR
Maddie
Dave C
Tom
Harriet

I've not done a weekend meet before. How/who/when do I pay?
Looking forward to some welsh rock too.

Foodwise I might end up doing my own as my stomach is tempremental. Always keen to get involved on the pudding front though (seperate belly innit). Caterpillar cake is the classic curry desert right?
