Post August 22nd and 23rd 2015 Surfing. CANCELLED Reply with quote
CANCELLED

A camping weekend next to the sea at Appledore, with two days surfing on the beach at Westward Ho! The camping will be a field just outside the entrance to Skern Lodge Activity Centre which has plenty of space and a great view.

We have access to the Lodge facilities including showers and toilets plus an outside cold water sink for tidying up. They also have a small bar we can use. In the camping field there is just a drinking water tap - it is not a full campsite so facilities such as electric hookup are missing. Accommodation and meals need to be booked in advance please. Camping is £5 per person per night.

This is not a club event with coaches or leaders just a gathering of club members for a fun weekend by the sea. We can help out and give some guidance to get you going. There is also the chance to try out proper surf boats if they are available - just be warned, you may like them!

If you don't fancy the water, there is plenty of opportunity to walk the coast paths and relax in Appledore and just generally enjoy the area. Body boarding is a popular choice too!

I plan to arrive Friday evening and camp Friday and Saturday nights. I will be there Saturday DAY ONLY.

We need to let Skern Lodge know the numbers in advance so if you would like to go please post here with which nights you will be staying.

Ideal sized waves this weekend by the looks of things for beginners and intermediates alike.

Welcome to Skern Lodge!

Notes for Campers

Please help everything run smoothly by reading the following information.

Camping
o Please drive slowly, and take care walking along the drive.
o Football – in the field please, not around the buildings.
o Please use the litter bins provided.

Toilets and Showers
Come in the drive, walk diagonally across the Orchard grass, and there are gents and ladies toilets and showers in the far corner (to the right of the dining room entrance).

There are more toilets in the left door of the dining room building – ladies downstairs and gents upstairs.

Water
Water tap at the far side of the camping field. There is cold water and a sink for washing up on the back of the Orchard building. Come in the drive gateway and turn immediately right.

Valuables
We don’t normally have a security problem, but any valuables left in tents or cars are at your own risk. Valuables may be left in the office if you wish, with access 9am to 5pm (or lock in your car).

Residential groups
It is a busy weekend at the Lodge and we also have some residential groups staying with us. Both group leaders and Skern Lodge are very aware of security when bringing pupils away from home. Please help us avoid any problems by not entering any of the accommodation buildings, Courtyard area or drying rooms. Thank you.

Activity equipment
There is strictly no access to the Assault Course, High Ropes, Climbing Walls, Swimming Pool, stores and other obvious activity areas without a Skern Instructor.

Fire Alarm
If the fire alarm sounds whilst you are here, return to your tents and account for all your group. If there is any problem, report to Skern staff by the equipment stores.

The office will be manned from 9am to 5pm each day. Please call into the office if you have any queries.

For emergencies at night, Duty Instructor– 07977 259633.

I'm on the verge of cancelling this weekend as everyone is dropping out.

Is there anyone who is actually going to be coming? If you are, I need to know if you want to stay Friday or Saturday nights by the end of today. 20/08/2015

Hi Fox

We (Alex and Alex, but no kids) are planning on coming. We plan to arrive around 0900-0930 on Saturday morning and stay the night, surfing both days. Is it going ahead?

cheers

Alex
