Is it still by a lake?

Ha ha ha! I didn't like to say anything.... :mrgreen: "Bluegrass by The A438". :wink:
The views from the pub campsite do look very nice though.

it is indeed "bluegrass by the A438" no longer on llangorse lake. maybe "bluegrass-on-wye" might be more appropriate. but so as not to confuse people about which event we are running(not a new event on the bluegrass calendar) we kept to the old name...rather, errr...confusingly.

i will check up on the position regarding dogs on the campsite.

at the moment our local weather forecast looks reasonably good, especially in light of the recent weather, friday's likely to be a bit wet in the afternoon but sat and sunday pretty good all day.

colin, chef/proprietor of the radnor arms, is tailoring the weekend menu for us- nothing over £10 for the posh food.they will also be putting up a marquee in the pub garden to expand our picking area options.

general consensus: a great weekend in spite of the heavy rain on friday and sat.we were made very welcome by colin and his team at the radnor arms and will be returning next year, third weekend in june , for another weekend of picking.
i have a tuner which was left behind if anyone in attendance is missing one.
