Once confirmed I'll start sorting out the curborough website (rather than the week before), we'll be there in 2013, ready to autotest the pram ;)

Hopefully we'll make it - by then we should have had time to get the car in a reasonable state to drive that far, fingers crossed. Does everyone camp there for the weekend?

Yes Liz, camping and caravaning makes sense if you have the equipment. There are showers and toilets too AFAIK :D

Liz, have a look at http://www.rssoc-curborough.co.uk for details on what's happened in recent years. Curbs always follows a similar format with a good handful of surprises thrown in long the way. Come along for the full weekend, i'm sure you won't regret it

Only 295 days to go :hurrah:
