Met-check is currently showing Thursday evening and Saturday evening no rain at all - but it has been very variable and it might still go back to the predictions of 4 days ago - glorious sun.

Anyway, I'm OK with white cloud, or indeed some light rain, so long as it's not white lightning (at least the UK variant).

I have heard of Dogs Bollocks but not dogs' Baleriacs??//
anyway.
I have just this second gone to BBC weather check and Friday is forecast 'White Cloud & Saturday light rain. Tomorrow it will be White Rain and light cloud.

Unfortunately the Fire Wardens we have had in the past at Knockers sadly no longer come to Knockers.

The fact that jim was 100% Rummed up to the eye balls on that occasion the truth is he is a very lucky man. He simply rolled on and rolled out and apart from a smokey jacket he came off non the worst

Dont throw logs on fires when your off your tits on Rum. or anything else for that matter?Your likely to follow them onto the fire in drink fueled momentum. Emily told me all about it years ago.

You should have designated fire wardens and nobody else chucking logs. Myself and Graham Atwood did it for 8 years and Richard Phipps has done the honours for about 4 years now. THis is best for all concerned and dare I say it Health & Safety - remember the close shave Jim had!

I do not mind throwing logs on the fire during the evening sing around session friday and Saturday night. I have done it for the last ten years without complaint or injury. I also do not throw logs on in front of folk who are playing there slot showering them and there instruments in a sea of sparks has I recall happened last year when a newbie jumped on the band wagon and started throwing logs on directly in front of performers? and quite rightly got told to sit down .

I wont be there to erect the Marquee' but I will be more then happy to help take it down.

I really hope this Knockers will be a successful event though turn out concerns me.

I am not organising either wood or bogs. I believe bogs are usual suppliers so will know at least roughly where to put them (and how to get in). Wood is again as the last few years so should know. If there is megaproblem I will have to go home to get trailer. Don't panic Mr Mannering.

Richard and Ian may be coming from Brighton they have been coming now for the last three years they know nothing of the knockholt changes re Folkmob withdrawal and the price increases. Both have little money. Please let them on the field to pitch and I will sort them out when I arrive. They are both Knockholt mates of mine. Hold me true to this ?

last year the toilets arrived at 10.30 on the Thursday Morn. Those there on the Wednesday had nothing to go on? I dug a hole in the flint pit and sat there quite contented. I cant come till friday morn so if the toilets are coming Wednesday i hope there is someone on the field to let them in and show them where to place them> Like wise the wood pile. both arrive early.

There is also the problem of how to open the gate Re key. The farmer hides it are folk aware of where too find it? I hope they do not dump the wood at the gate? These are my main concerns usually I would be there for such folk but work this time prevents me so I show concern. Pat and Deb do not usually get there till mid day so if the toilets arrive at 10.30 no bugger re bogs and wood will be able to get on the field.

They dumped the toilets off at the gate a few years back bloody Palaver that was had to drag them into position using a sodding car and a lot of human effort pushing we had to build sledges out of wood to move the bogs? and tow them across the field. If they drop the logs off at the gate then that will be a nightmare.
These concerns are genuine.
Kind regards Pierre Le Chapeau.

We are having two. If we get a good turnout on a fine evening one will be distinctly marginal. And if we do get a good turnout on a fine evening that is exactly when there will be lots of people needing to de-beer at the same time.

I believe we are having two Porta loos I think one would suffice considering the folk who have there own loos ie caravan and trailers.
This would keep the cost down. After all we do not all go to the toilet at the same time do we?

I will be there early friday morn and Rachel coming late Friday night.

"Danger" dont use concrete it explodes "kampervan is right" dampness within causes fractures and they fill with boiling gases and go BANG SOME STONES GO BANG TOO. One of my cookers exploded and took off like a bloody UFO. dont use pebbles it causes a blunderbus effect.

an old cooking oil drum from a Kebab shop makes a ideal cooker but drill a hole in the top and stick a copper pipe in it to vent. cut one end off and reseal once meat in side with thick flour and water paste. Dont put stones in it. stick a iron bar through the middle and hang meat off it so meat dont touch side of tin. A jig saw with a metal blade is ideal to cut one end off. Drill a larhe hole so one vcan get the blade in to start you off then just jig saw rounf the top whre the pouring hole is. Simples/

No! Don't heat concrete - it can explode if it has trapped moisture or air pockets in it. Firebrick, clay or most natural stone is ok, but not concrete.

Shall I bring the big Le creuset just in case Richard? - although the brake drum, halfshaft and hubcap sound a lot more fun. I want to have a go at making gridle cakes on the fire at some stage so I'm looking for a large flat stone.

Ah yes. Must try out new burners for van oven - and buy pounds and pounds of scotch bonnets and make harissa paste in advance. I have found butcher (seemingly Arabian, although hidden at the back of an Indian market - at least I heard him exchange greetings of "Salaam alekhum" with friends) to do goat meat, so I can take one step closer to an authentic recipe for tagine.

I am inclined to think that I could make a very Knockholt tagine dish (cooking utensil) with a large enough lorry or tractor brake drum, an offcut of a halfshaft to plug the hole in the middle, and a very domed hubcap to put on the top.

Looking forward to it. Cost seems reasonable to us. This might not be so when we are retired and on fixed income.

For now, we love Knockholt. The chance to chat with people, the music, the bonfire, lovely scenery, the group meal (when we can participate).

@ Essex Girl - I have copy of That Precious Legacy (songs collected from Essex by R. Vaughn Williams) for you. Since you are not attending Knockholt, maybe the Wassail at GI?

Day trippers and night (well, evening, although at times Trevor does look a bit like Dr John) trippers will be invited to put something in a bucket. So if people's consciences are up to snuff all attendees will contribute.

I am sure that all contributions, in cash or kind will be gratefully received. For this purpose I think Lady Raffles or Mick is bagperson.

I have just stocked up on nice new bolts and nuts for the marquee (and two long allen keys to cut down so they fit in battery electric drills) so the marquee frame ought now to go zippety-zip. The wonderful Gravesend Screw (now sadly renamed "Versatile Fasteners") cost me all of a fiver including the allen keys - another few quid saved.
