Make sure you; back up and delete all work from all computers, we spent several days over the holidays wiping stuff, to free hard disk space, especially on the Nikon Scanner. Don’t leave any work on any computer for ANY period of time.

When to get there
We have booked the camp from, 4:00pm Teusday – 1:00pm Thursday. Please do NOT arrive before 4:00pm, the camp is used by others and they may have not left by the alloted time.
About the camp
The Tanybryn campsite currently contains 2 buildings, a “rec” room, with pool table, table tennis table, a fireplace, 2 stoves, gas electric and a refrigerator, some couches and chairs, the couches convert to beds, and last but not least a fireplace. Obviously there is electricity, however, there is NO mobile phone reception.
The second building is the “dorm”. This is really 4 rooms with 3 bunk beds in each. Which means the camp sleeps 24 in total, of course people sometimes sleep on floors and as I said some room is available on the floor and couches in the “rec” room. Each room in the dorm block has an on-suite bathroom and toilet.
