East Mids Meet - Sun 6 Dec 2015 Elvaston

Hello!

The East Midlands Doodle Meet Group are having another doodle dash at Elvaston Castle this Sunday (6th Dec) at 10.15 am for a 10.30 start...

Everyone meets up on the main show ground next to the big car park and the doods get to have a good romp before we set off walking. We pause again once we are through the wooded area (watch out for ponies and bikes) for the doods to have another play on the event field - chasing balls, sticks, each other and any random picnickers they spy... Then it's on to the café area. The bloomin' café has been chockablock in more recent months, though we're hoping it may be a little easier to get a coffee and a bun in the cold, cold months of Winter! There's a covered outdoor area, so somewhere for us to break open a flask if the weather is (as predicted) less than clement... Then on to the lake where the hardiest doods can take a dip, and our Ianto can search in vain for toddlers with duck bread.... Suitably wet and muddy, and with the doods in tow :wink: , we then walk down the broad, grassy avenue back to the car park - where, if we're very lucky, there's a guy with a van and more coffee! :D

There are toilets in the main car park and also in the café area. There's a small charge for parking though the machines can be a pain... if they're not working, there's a kiosk near the entrance (by the toilets).

Be aware that the postcode for Elvaston Castle takes you to the wrong side of the park and although you can walk through to the meeting place quite quickly, you can't drive through...

Christmas jumpers and hats, if you have them (but not compulsory!) Hope to see you there... Look out for the frazzled-looking woman with a crazy black dood on a permanent lead (Ianto, grounded until he's 32) and a tiny brown and white mutt running circles around the larger doods (The Baby Wyre, fuelled by testosterone... but not for much longer... :shock: )

Anne, Ianto & Wyre x
