From the organisers, John Whyman (Pongo) and Mark and Gemma Herron (Gemmasun)
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

There is a restaurant/bar and shop on site and other shops with in very easy reach for provisions of your choice/budget for the BBQ on Sat night.
An easy meal (Bolognese/salad or similar) will be available on the Friday night @€5 a head, and BBQ equipment will be made available for anyone who wishes to use/get involved on Saturday night at the lakeside. (Please bring your own Spork and plate and something to sit on!)
