How many does the bus fit? How many cars are going?
Where the hell am I going to park? 😛October 16, 2013 at 21:52 #375RonanKParticipant
Michael, apparently I’m giving you a liftOctober 16, 2013 at 22:52 #376nbrowneModerator
There won’t be room for the large tent. The numbers going to the trip are roughly the same as last year, so in theory we should not need it anyway. The fire pit is overgrown and you need a petrol strimmer to cut away the brambles and briars etc. WOn’t have the time to do it…October 17, 2013 at 09:30 #382
There are more people going this year for sure but its not my problem. I have a bed and no responsibility 😀
There should be enough room in the barn. put boards down over the filth that will be generated and it will be fine.October 17, 2013 at 10:06 #387nbrowneModerator
No boards in barn anymore. Also, rave is in there, so nobody sleeping in there. Should be grand!
I have a bed as well, so I don’t overly care 😉October 17, 2013 at 10:28 #388
last year was the first time people didnt sleep in the barn on a trip I have been on and the house was packed. no way everyone will fit in the cottage.
not my problem but it is your problem Niall. You are still a committee bitch so you have to keep people aliveOctober 17, 2013 at 10:49 #391Andy Hedgy HayesParticipant
72 people going (as far as I know)
bout 35 in house, assuming people double up, lie on floors etc… can maybe stretch that to 40.
leaves 32. then about 12 will sleep in cars etc. (maybe a bit more)
still leaves 20 bedless.
Barn and tents might cut it. But the barn was in no state last year. and is no boards to put down?
so say bring the 2 F10s and whoever else brings a tent. but as you say is limited room. So how over grown was it? and is there not some sorta clean up trip a few weekends before freshers? then someone post to facebook saying “Guys need volunteers to go up and clear overgrown crap, and if time we can climb the shit outta the mournes, weather looks like X which means Y would be fun to do.. etc etc”.
can that be part of next years plan? Zero downsidesOctober 17, 2013 at 11:01 #394
can we get hold of boards? guessing not. I didn’t hear anything about the cleanup weekend. If people are counting the number of people that can go on trips using their fingers next year then make sure that you have 10 fingers and not 12. Bloody hunsOctober 17, 2013 at 11:04 #396
I’m sleeping in the car, I’ll be grand, I may have space for one more but it is a mini…October 17, 2013 at 12:06 #410
Just for reference, while the f10s will hold 3 people each, I wouldnt encourage it for a weekend, particularly one when you might be drinking

hey the area around the back of the cottage was well strimmed about 3 weeks ago by myself and roisin. there should be room for plently of tents, theres lots of cars to sleep in and like folk said everyone has managed to find somewhere to sleep last year with similar numbers. andy,please bring down your big tent. will bring 3 club ones. worst comes to worst folk can sleep in the barn but hopefully wont come to that. stuartOctober 17, 2013 at 13:33 #422QUBMC NormKeymaster
