Default Dartmoor in january - 2014

DARTMOOR IN JANUARY, 2014 - Weekend 24th to 27th of January.

Some of you who attended the previous Dartmoor gatherings have expressed an interest in having another one in January, 2014.

So I am looking for a date and currently January the 24th to the 27th is being targeted. This suits me but if you wish to come along and the date is not convenient do let me know (within a few days please) and I will see what can be done.

We shall again be using the Riverside Inn, Bovey Tracey as our base. The rate currently quoted for single en-suite accommodation is £45.00 per night. The cost of en-suite accommodation for two sharing a double or twin room is currently shown as £75.00 per night. A full- English breakfast can be obtained for an additional £5.00 per person, per night – book when making your booking or at the hotel when you arrive.

When I have finalised the date I would advise early booking at the Riverside Inn as they only have 10 -12 rooms.

The hotel's website is:

http://www.riversideinnbtracey.co.uk


*DO NOT BOOK ANYTHING UNTIL THE DATE HAS BEEN CONFIRMED*

Alternatively, a variety of accommodation in the form of Inns, hotels, B&Bs and camping / caravanning sites for the hardy is available within the area to suit all pockets and tastes.

The format for the weekend will be the same as our previous visits –informal and to do some photography. There will be three days of landscape photography, with plenty of time for socialising in the evenings. Hopefully we shall have another print sharing session at the Riverside Inn on the Saturday night – please bring along some prints if you can.

The general idea is to visit some moorland locations that will provide good photography and to accommodate the wishes of the group. The locations will be decided on the day and will be chosen with the weather in mind and the wishes of those there. But if you would prefer to do your own thing that will not be a problem. The emphasis will be on maximising image making opportunities rather than trekking miles across the Tors. As the weather on Dartmoor can be unpredictable, and the going often muddy, sensible outdoor clothing and walking boots / shoes are recommended.

If you live locally, or are able to travel in, and would like to join us for few hours on one or more of the days / evenings, you would be made most welcome. Just let me know what you are planning to do and we will be looking out for you.

If you have any questions / queries that are not covered in the above please raise them here or send me a PM.

I hope to see all the past Dartmoor attendees and a good few new ones on the moor in January. Why not come along to blow away the Christmas excesses and to kick-start your photography for 2014!

Neil.

I know Cambridgeshire is a long way away but that's no excuse!

I'd like to do Dartmoor again but don't enjoy January and we may be going somewhere warmer then.
I'll save myself for Hartland in the spring if that's likely to happen.

Hi Neil

You can definitely count on my support on this one. I will take your advice and wait until confirmation of the dates before booking the Riverside.

Cheers

Stoo

Jon,

You will be greatly missed but I must admit I did notice you suffering a tad last time. Hopefully we shall be there again later next year and you can get along to that one.

With Hartland it is the next one to do and I will soon start looking for dates for the spring or early summer. It will all depend on what the hotel is doing - they are very popular with weddings and other functions and finding a slot can be difficult. But watch this space as I'm on the case.

Neil.

Hi Stoo,

Thanks - I have you on the list then

Don't forget to book your favourite room with the photogenic chair in the window!
