Any plans for a HIP trip for 2017 can be made here!   :socool  :duck

I hope this will be the biggest and best HIP trip so far!   After learning that Hornby is a treasure trove of ammonite and other fossils, I am keen to do some fossiling this time also.  :thumbup: Anyone else?

Jeav, in that case I suggest that you look at the tide tables before booking a date. I don't know much about fossils, but those rock hounds sure love coming here on a nice low tide!

Jeff the weekend that was chosen  by the last HIP trip members was the second  weekend of June.  That would be the weekend  over June 10, 11th. The following weekend would be Father's Day and not many would want to leave home that day. That also is the beginning of high season for most airlines, making travel costs greater. Never-the-less we should try to find out if that works for the majority.  Thanks for bringing up the subject.  :heart

Hub and I will be there.  Obviously the second weekend in June plus or minus days on each side.  Who else is in?  😀
We're looking for places right now but who's going will be important. 
Jeff - Ford's Cove?

Unfortunately for me, I will have to cut my stay to 3 or 4 nights this year. One of my granddaughters is graduating from university that same week. I see lots of signs that point to a good year for our nest, so glad I can be there for the end of the week and the weekend. Looking forward to seeing lots of chatters too.   :eclove

Hey all!

I guess we'll have to plan for a big reunion next year.  However we'll be there 8th - 12th this year.  Look out Booni & Wren, we're comin' at ya.  lol  We'll be staying at Fords Cove 'cause we can afford it.

Now that we have eggs and can look forward to eaglets I  hope and expect that more  chatters and MODS will join the HIP trip. If you havent already made plans to do so, please consider this amazing and gratifying experience. Every chatter should consider themselves invited.. no invitations go out. :eclove
