All the usual fun of the fair, juggling space aplenty, games a go-go, cafe on site, a possible return of the trebuchet, and Charlie's volunteered to run a Taskmaster at some point. All of this and more.

If any FightNighters want there to be one again on the last Sunday this year, then volunteer to run it! I don't fancy it this year, myself, so someone else can run it. (It's quite easy to run, really.)

See you all at the world's longest juggling convention!

Trebuchet will return. The old frame will be extended and a new stronger beam will be made.
This may even be the year when we don't manage to break it.

The Void - - Parent

That's a bold prediction!

Monte - - Parent

Did ''may'' need to be in bold capitals to convey it's meaning accurately for you? (:

The Void - - Parent

I was talking about your second sentence. ( <--- This may or may not be true. I'll tell you in May.) :-)

Monte - - Parent

PM May may ban trebuchets, by May we may know, otherwise it may be true that we may rebuild the frame and beam.

The meadow is currently under about 8 inches of snow. Looks really pretty with totally virgin snow, apart from the rabbit and crow footprints criss crossing it.
Absolutely freezing though, no way the stoves would heat the tents right now.
Roll on May and the lovely warm weather.

Monte - - Parent

.....and the lovely warm weather is here.
The meadow is now under a blanket of bright yellow buttercups.

10 days to go, don't forget your suncream.

White balls no good, bring brightly coloured balls.

The Void - - Parent

Bring highlighter pens. :-P

The Void - - Parent

Meanwhile, with you away for much of it, does that mean no trebuchet plans?

Monte - - Parent

Not necessarily. Depends how many people are interested in helping rebuild the arm.
Mike has moved back to Cornwall, John won't be there and I don't know about Dave TB. Those three have been the most help during construction in the past.
I don't think it is likely that the frame will be enlarged but a repair is still on the cards.
I need to buy an electric winch for cocking it safely and some timbers and screws for the arm.

The Void - - Parent

I don’t know how we all stand it, to be honest.
Another terrible terrible day at #BungayBallsUp. pic.twitter.com/j3RL1JzIMu
