It has been brought to my attention that folk are not staying on the Knockholt site in the afternoons for the afternoon sessions around the fire.
Instead they are all following Pete the Hat and fellow drinking partner down the Tally Ho.

This is nonsense. We go down the Tally Ho and others come down in our wake because they so wish to. We used to have well attended and not so much well attended work shops in the afternoons but they do not seem to happen now.instead folk sit in there tents or out side playing guitar the fire side is empty. get some workshops up and running and I will attend.

alturnately we could have a game of .....Base ball...Rounders..
Thats it how about a game of
Its a Knockholt Knockout. the first game we could call
PORTA LOO PAR-LARVA.
The Idea of the game is to get the porta loos to the other end of the field by towing them behind a car. and navigating them over various
obsticles. just to make it a little bit harder we could have the opposing teams throwing sheep at each other.

I miss the afternoon fireside sessions too. The last one I remember was with that chap who has since died so young of a heart problem I think it was who had a lovely little Martin 00028 (or maybe it was an Orchestral model with 28 decoration) who certainly knew how to use it, and I suprised him by identifying "20 flight rock" before he was a couple of bars into the intro..

He played some nice blues and ragtime that I was able to mess around on the mandolin to

That was Tony Horncastle, who we dearly miss. We can still do the sessions by the fire it only takes two to start, then the others seem to join in or come along and listen. People did seem to prefer sitting outside their tents at the last one though. I don't know why, I always prefer sitting around a campfire even when the sun is blaxing (high hopes) it just has that magic feel.

Rafflesbear.
I did mentioned the broken pallets to some committee members at the Folkmob club Tudor barn last Wednesday the problem seems to be that we know no one with a van or a pick up truck to collect them?

Believe me they would come in handy due to the fact that our wood supplyer from Dover has kindly blown us out with only a few days to go and has only told Debbie at the last minute resulting in her having to phone round frantically trying to find another supplier.

The way its looking we will be burning that old dead Oak in the centre copse.

I have just checked the Ten day forcast and Septembers Knockholt does not look too bad this year.

(If you enjoy water sports? I am going to bring me Rubber Dingy this year so I can go White Water Rafting down Stonings Lane.)

Anyone who enjoys filming Extream nature The electrical storms above the camping field should be excellent this year.

Has far has the afternoon sessions round the bonfire lets get organised and get them going again.
See you all there.

Thank you Mr Fish, So whats new having camped every weekend (nearly) this year I now have trench foot and have decided that wellys (sans sheep) and plastic macs are sexy.(still can,t find one low cut enough though)
What happened to global warming when did it alter to climate change which actually means it pi**es down all the time,
The Answer is to get drunk and stay that way for the whole time so I,ll be folking again this weekend will bring brolley so drinks don't get too wet.

Richard, Mick was at the field last night dropping off the marquee and other bits, he said some of the logs were very long so bringing your chainsaw would probably be a good idea, he also said that the grass is about 6 inches high but I don't suppose there is much we can do about that..... you don't happen to have a lawn mower tucked away in your caravan do you?

We came home this afternoon. Thursday night was the only decent break in the weather. Had to come home to run Friday Folk. The long grass has been largely flattened by Brian's mobility scooter, but is getting muddier by the minute. We had a small but largely non-performing circle around the fire on Thursday night. Kev The Clogs was there one minute and gone the next. Norcsalordie were excellent, and happily took turns with us, Richard B and Royston. Lady Raffles sang one song, as did Martin, before the rain started again at midnight. More people arrived today. We wish them well in the Glastonbury-like conditions. BTW Bessie has laringytis, so no Dealers tonight at OFF either.

sitting here in Romany Man's caravan drinking - what a surprise! It is pissing with rain and blowing a gale! The sheep are safe as no bugger is venturing out. The fire is still burning. Lots of little groups eating and drinking in a variety of dry areas. Several hardy folk in the large marquee. Forcast for Sat and Sun looks crap as well! Can we have a Winter Frost Knockholt to make up for it.

The chainsaw got a lot of work(between showers) once I had had a very blunt conversation with its choke mechanism.

Many people would still be there if it were not for Romany Man and his Shogun (and my towropes) extracting the less fortunate from the mud...

Frank had trouble on entry. Mick and Sue Ford had trouble on entry.

Royston bogged on exit with no van on.

Essex Girl bogged on exit with a van on.

Frank bogged on exit in his campervan.

I was luckier than at Pig's Ear and made two runs out (I had two vans there, one for me and one for princess daughter), with the Volvo singing nicely, but I was able to get a fair lick on down the field and take the gate on a trailing throttle.

Alas the turbo (that was the Volvo I had there) has clearly eaten a head gasket.


Manymany thanks to all who provided my birthday celebrations - and in particular to Dilligaf and Essex Girl who did a curry for 30 as my birthday meal - and also for all the wonderful presents and cards.

Despite the weather I think Rachel and Sam must have seen some of the heart of Knockholt, and I think we may get them back another year if the weather is better.


One family nearly spoiled the event with a gratuitous display of racism and bigotry, and a range of other antisocial behaviour. But with care it was possible largely to avoid them.
