The Wombat Anniversary Tweetup, June 23rd


I’ve given a brief notice of this before, but since the date is getting closer, I ought to flesh out the bones. Mmmmmm flesh….

DSCF4524Ahem. Mark the date in your diaries, and PLEASE do come to the Yorkshire Sculpture Park on Saturday 23rd June for a Tweetup to celebrate @little_mavis and my 33rd Wedding Anniversary. (Edit by LM: The anniversary thing isn’t really important, we just needed to pick a date & this swung the vote, so don’t let that put you off). Feel free to bring kids, dogs, whoever you like. Although there is a restaurant, bring also a packed lunch & drinks, as we’ll find a few picnic tables or grass to eat on and socialise before exploring the treasures of the place. And your camera, definitely bring your camera.

DSCF4569The YSP is near Wakefield, a mile from the M1 (junction 38). Admission is free, but parking is £5 using Pay & Display machines, so bring enough change to make life easy for yourself. It opens at 10am, and we’ll meet up near the easy-to-find YSP Centre from about 10:30 – 11, then move to a Picnic Area to eat. I’ll also be discoverable by phone once we’ve moved on from there. You can click the map below (which I’ve annotated using Comic Sans, purely to annoy @captain_doodle) if you want to see a bigger version, or there’s a humungous PDF map on the YSP site itself (page 5).

Need a lift?

DSCF4638Please let me know if you’re planning to come – it’d be good to be able to look forward to seeing you. Also, I’ll try to co-ordinate lifts for anyone without a car, so those needing a lift and those with room to offer one should tell me. Can’t promise anything obviously, but I’ll do my best to sort this stuff out – oooh, I could use a multicoloured spreadsheet a la Martin Bryce!

Any questions, just ask me. Now watch it rain…. not that I’ll mind. I’ll just get wet and enjoy it.
