I read about it, then read that it had been cancelled and out of curiosity looked at the location.
The campsite is by a major river and situated on the flood plain of the river, also in one of the wettest and cloudiest locations in the UK. Throw in that late October-early November is not noted for its fine dry weather, you do have to ask who organises these things.
One item on SGL I read was the planning of things they were doing, what was noticable was none involved observing.
Recall reading a few years back that they had managed half a nights observing in a week. Does seem to be a case of hold a star party in the wettest, cloudiest part of the UK and at a poor time of year with regards weather. The location is dark but really they need first clear skies then dark.
I do think someone needs to talk to whoever arranges the Kelling Heath ones about where and when. There must be somewhere in Somerset/Dorset/East Devon they could find. If further North and central then Oxfordshire. But the West side of the UK is a non-optimum choice. I used to live in Wiltshire and it was wet, but not as wet as South Wales is.
Does make me ask why FLO do not organise more with the NLO (Norman Lockyear Obs) at Sidmouth and arrange to host the SGL party there. At least one of the FLO people is a member of the NLO group. But the hill to NLO is a long climb up from Sidmouth. Just thought it is not a campsite so has no facilities.
Will be interesting to see what the future plans are but with the direction the weather here is taking I would say they have to change location for somewhere further East or at least East of the Pennines in effect. Or in the Southern counties of Devon, Dorset, Hampshire. Maybe the geographic center of England, apparently Fenny Drayton Leicestershire. So they have a CofE Star Party. But I suspect they need a slight rethink.
