Barlos! Fantastic idea I am not sure that the camp site would be on board with that? Who would we have 'on the door' ???

Ive been thinking As this will be the official pirate championship event we need to make it special.We've all saved money on not travelling overseas so im going to suggest having a whip round to hire a marquee, we could use this for gatherings, eating, storage, post race party etc etc. Ive already asked OSB to reserve an area for us to camp at this year race but I think for 2012 we need to go one better. Im thinking pirate village, large reserved area with pirate flags at the entrance etc etc.Obvioulsly planning is in the early stages but its going to be fab
Moving a rowing lake would be a massive logistical operation.
Love the idea of the Pirate Village but keep in mind that many have opted for the stay at home race because we are a bit financially challenged, so please don't get too carried away!
Fantastic idea though. I'm sure the campsite will go for it if we are willing to cough up!

A decent hottub is about £200 for a week, includes delivery set-up and collection Marquee's look to be about £400-£500 for a decent one, though probably could get cheaper or find someone via the forum that knows someone etc.
If we are camping anyway then the cost of having us in one area should be the same as having us spread out. Would just make it easier for 'them' to keep an eye us in any case.
The cost of a marquee, or big tent should hardly break the bank when spread around. I found one hire company that also rents hot-tubs! They also do silent discos - they rent you over 100 wireless headphones - that would be bizarre.
Plus as it will be our own beer rather than a pubs beer the cost of the marquee will be paid for in reduced beer prices.
