This Autumn's Meet

#1 Post by Freemans of the Moor » Tue Nov 03, 2015 10:00 am

We visited this years Autumn Meet on the 25th. October and was surprised by only seeing 4 Charity walks for sale.

1). A Bird's Eye View of Dartmoor11 - Row Tor to Sammy Arnold's Lane.
2). Monasatic Life - Cox Tor area.
3). Dartmoor Wild Wood - Horn Hill area.
4). Dartmoor Roundles - Crockern Tor to Wistman's Wood

We could walk freely around the hall with no congestion. The weather was decent with good viz.
Kountry Kit's stall was also absent.

I wonder if the cost of the tables/pitches along with the time of year has anything to do with it.
Sadly not everyone likes Lee Moor, and wishes it would return to Princetown. Personally I like both venues, Lee Moor is cheaper, but Princetown has a lot more to offer.

It's a shame that there are only 4 charity walks. Presumably winter walks are less profitable due to lower sales.

Unfortunately the meets are just too far to travel for us, but i did just come on here to look for charity walks to do when I need to come to Devon with work. Are the contact details available anywhere?

Charity walks and No confidence in this Forum

Most of the "guests" are bot programs looking for places like this to dump spam on
There are a few genuine ones who actually register, but they are few and far apart.

Just had a look at the "guests" now and all of them are bots from the USA

I used to get the updates, but I found that I wasn't getting to the moor anyway, and consequently I wasn't having the motivation to keep my records updated.

I suppose I should start again, really.
