Taken from the PWS web site
   
 
 
  UK 7 Day Forecast
Valid from Friday May 28th 2010 to
Thursday June 3rd 2010
 
A mixed forecast, but no Bank Holiday washout.  The emphasis being on 'dry' weather, where people can at least get out and about.
 
For the north, some rain around, but the percentages lean towards there being more drier weather than wetter weather.  Daytime temperatures will be on the cool side compared with recent values, in the 14c to 16c region, falling away to no lower than 8c/46f overnight.  The daytime values will revive themselves as the week progresses.  Winds start north westerly, eventually ending up south easterly.
 
For the southern half of the UK, more encouraging.  For the bulk of time looking dry with some sunny intervals.  Daytime temperatures in the 17c to 19c region, and no lower than 10c/50f overnight.  As with the north, daytime values will revive themselves as the week progresses, climbing possibly into the mid 20's.  Winds start north westerly, eventually ending up south easterly. 
 
Sun cream it is then :-)) :-)) :-))

For those of us unable to stay overnight is there anywhere on site that we can get something to eat during the day.

What is the 'form' on the BBQ?
Is it a central thing?
Do we all 'chip in?
How do we contribute or
Do we all do our own thing?

Sorry about the 'dumb questions' but this will be my first Mayhem event and I don';t quite know what to expect.

 :embarrassed:

Looking forward eagerly to the weekend.

Hi Mayhemers,

Great news - the paint has just dried on this winters secret project and I hope to have yet another maiden voyage at Wicksteed (last year was the computer controlled flash steamer "Vital Byte").

This year's steam boat has no computer, no engine, no propellor and, also, no rudder and is somewhat .... different! (although the shape may suggest it, it is not pyramid power!).

Hopefully, if its not too rough, I shall be exploring its performance (I'm as much in the dark as anyone else as to what might happen).

Looking forward to great Wicksteed 2010.

Ian.

Rex, we all get to the side of the lake, have a few beers and carry on sailing the boats (fit lights on it). Bring your own food and chuck it on the barbies. Don't know what's planned for this year but last year we had about 6 disposable ones.

Ian, going by that description it's a pop-pop boat? {-)

Best thing I can say to all these newcomers to the event is go with the flow, it's a brilliant weekend out and is about the most fun you can have with a model boat :-)) Most of what you need is what you'd take on a camping trip, but with the addition of model boats. The main aim is to have fun O0

Hi Andy,

There's no "pop-pop" with this boat! ( it might "glug-glug").

Keep guessing...

See you there.

Whatever it is, I'm in no doubt I'll be the one sent to fetch it when it does go 'Glug Glug' {-)

Rex
I am bringing a couple of disposable BBQs so there is going to be some spare space, bring what you want to eat. As Andyn has said while we barbie we sail some boats into the darkness as well, and we might have a beer or three. Bring some food for lunch over the weekend, otherwise you might miss something as you wander off to get something.

See you there
