If it's on Anglesey again (again again again), prepare for galeforce winds.Apart from that just turn up, have a walk round and talk to as many people as you can. I think in ten years there's been one Dragon you might consider a bit nasty weather wise, so while it's worth checking the forecast there's no need to dig out the studs and Swedeish ski frames.

I won't be there this year, heading for the Elefant and can't get out again a week later. Look for the Thumper Club guys they always give a warm welcome to anyone who's not been before.

Usually you'll be offered hot soup when you check in. The "bar" is a table served from a van load of cans on a good year, there is a sort of club house if they end up on Anglesey again. There is usually a burger van. So, if you are happier travelling light, having a few cans of Boddingtons and the sort of burger most people will only eat after fifteen pints, there is that option. If you want a nice Martini, Moules Mariniere, Meatballs and tagliatelli, treacle sponge and a nice bottle of Bordeaux, followed by port and cheese (that was what I had this year!), you need to bring your own.

I'll be there too. Due to time constraints I'm cheating a bit as I'm flying in to the UK and being picked up by a friend whom is also providing me with a loaner bike. Still beats not going, though I'm very much looking forward to it!
