6th-8th September 2013. Camping Les Tours, St Amant-des-Cots
Aveyron (Dept 12).
Travellers are invited to come to France’s first mini-meet on the above date at the above location. As this is the first meet we are testing the water to establish if the formula works and to see how we could expand the event for next Year. (please bear with us!).
The location is an established holiday site with both camping and fixed accommodation. HU members Mark and Gemma Herron( Gemmasun) are on site during the summer and are making arrangements. As the dates are after the main holiday season there will be minimal contact or involvement with other holiday makers. The site has excellent facilities with a lakeside environment.
There is no fixed schedule, so we are hoping that this will be a friendly get together to both meet and exchange experiences and to get ideas for future more formal meetings. There may be a speaker for Saturday afternoon to share recent travel stories, (volunteers welcome), otherwise it’s an opportunity just to relax, chin wag or explore the local area.
Costs are for accommodation. Your food/drink is entirely to your own budget:
- €19 night per pitch inclusive of 2 persons, electricity and parking.
Xtra person €3 per night.
(Pitches are sufficiently large enough to accommodate two tents if you're happy sharing to keep costs down).
Fixed accomodation if required:-
Eco Tent (4 - 5 persons) 41 Euro
Mobile home (4 persons) 52 Euro
Mobile home (4- 6 persons) 57 Euro
Mobile Home (4-6 persons) 62 Euro

Me too, sounds nice, I think I'll be on my way back from east Europe by then and in need of a lazy weekend before coming back to Aussie land. I'm not able to confirm it at present as I don't have set dates apart from when I arrive in France.
O.K. so where is everybody hiding?? Be good to get a show of hands, even from the 'not sure yet' contingent. Further enticement is on the cards in the form of some words of wisdom on short trip planning at a time to be arranged during the meet. Can't promise anything with the weather (yet!) but hopefully it will be and not One thing is for sure, it won't be. and there should be plenty of and banter.
