EMS 5 Star Party - 2019 - BOOKING THREAD

Recommended Posts

Daz Type-R

All,

 

The staff have managed to find the time to arrange another star party, as it has been a number of years since we last had one!!

 

See this link for past EMS star parties......

 

https://www.eastmidlandsstargazers.org.uk/forum/72-past-events/

 

The site we picked was of a medium size with 21 electric hook up pitches, that takes tents, caravans, camper vans and motor homes.

 

Due to the size of the site (21 pitches) and as one of the perks of dark site membership, we opened pitches up to the dark site members first.

 

I need to make the next statement clear, EMS used it's own funds to hire the entire EHU field, so you will be unable to book with the site during the dates listed below directly, if you wish to come, you need to book through us.

 

So over to the rest of you to get the chance to bag the last 2 remaining pitches.  Dates, location and information is below.........

 

 

EMS 5 Star party.

 

All,

 

We have now purchased the entire EHU field at Halse Farm using EMS funds.  We have done this so we could secure the entire field to reduce the chance of a random muggle being in the middle of us.

 

We have confirmed, booked and paid for the 25th - 26th October 2019 (2 nights) with the site.  The price is £18 per night, which includes EHU (Please note the EHU is 10 AMPs, NOT 16).  EMS requires paying for the 2 main nights by 24-25/10/2018 which will secure your booking and refunds will only be given for the first 14 days after purchase, after that, if you can no longer join us, please let a member of staff know as we may have a waiting list in which we can sell on your pitch for you.

 

This has initially only been opened up to current dark site members but may be opened up to regular members if numbers cannot be met.

 

Conditions of EMS 5 (there are hardly any).

 

  • Children (under 18's) are NOT allowed, this is for their security as well as EMS's.
  • Dogs ARE allowed on site, if kept under control.

 

The list of names at the bottom of this post have shown an interest in attending.  If you still wish to come then we require you to initially purchase your 2 nights at a total of £36, while making your payments to EMS (methods below) we require you to provide the below information....

 

  • How long are you attending EMS 5 for, just the main 2 nights or longer?
  • What will you be staying in, caravan, tent, motor home or camper van?
  • Will you be doing visual astronomy or astro photography?
  • Will you be sharing a pitch with somebody - To clarify, we mean 2 persons in 1 tent / caravan / camper van / motor home, not 2 tents (for example) per pitch.
  • We need your full name and your EMS user name.

 

Payment can be made via PayPal to swhysall@aol.com (this is the preferred method) or if any other method is required, then please PM Sheila directly. Please do friends and family so there are no charges.

 

If using PayPal, within the payments section is a facility to add notes to the payee, can you please add the above information into there.

 

Once we have the above information from all those who showed an interest in attending, we will publish a site map with pitch allocations, showing you which pitch you will be on.  This will be on a separate thread.

 

Once the pitch allocation plan has been published, you will be able to book additional days (if required).  To do this, you will need to contact the site (details below), stating you are with the EMS star party group, on pitch ?? and what nights you would like. Quoting East Midlands Stargazers is important, as we have arranged a discounted rate. Please inform EMS when you have done so and also let us know of any changes to your stay dates that you originally notified us of.

 

Can you also please take note of any extra charges that you may have to pay, especially around extra cars, extra people, awnings ETC....

 

Caravan/Motorvan,Tent, 1 car and up to 2 people with hook up per night ......

 

  • With 10amp hookup    £18.00
  • Extra Adults    £7.50
  • Awning / Gazebo    £3.00
  • Each additional vehicle    £1.00

OK everybody, that looks like we have completely filled the entire EHU field, so thank you very much.

 

The staff will now complete the pitch plan and issue it so that you can book any extra days that you wish.

 

There will be a new EMS 5 section created and all future information will be in there.

 

I will post a link in this thread once done.

 

Thanks once again.

Who has booked the 'play area' ? Or is that for if we decide to do some Shakespearean themed evenings, or monty python style light hearted re-enactments  of pearl harbour > in case it happens to be a tad cloudy.

No 'tad cloudy' = The Royal Oak.  Play area is for those who can't get to sleep.

Just a bump for this for folks who want to book extra nights. Dec and Jan are when folks decide to sort their next years breaks so you need to make sure you have the days you want before a muggle books in before you. ?  I note that some folks who indicated they wanted extra nights have not booked them yet

Booked in from Wednesday 23rd p.m. to Tuesday 29th a.m.

Laetitia wasn't expecting many other (muggle) bookings because at that time of year most people want a hookup, and we have booked them all.

Yep, as Sheila mentioned my pitch is now available, due to my double-booking incompetence.

 

I'll see some of you in Kelling instead.
