Here is some initial thinking on the next Campfire Circle weekend, scheduled for November 4-6th.

Most have suggested they would prefer something more rustic / DIY in a central setting if possible so in that respect I have offered my barn again for a maximum of 40 (approx) people. 

Here is my proposed plan for the weekend :


Arrive from late afternoon at mine (Dog & Gun) or hotel/local accommodation.

Sparks were flying at the third Campfire Circle at my house this weekend - team coming together for two days of meetings and socials, some we'd never met before now. Inspiring themed discussions, open chats, new initiatives, resolutions. Much to think about, work on and take forward. Thanks to all who came, those who organised and brought the food, drink and good vibes...
