You can count me in too, I can't do enough to justify my own ground and this would be great.
sikamalc said:It is great to see so many members interested in this proposal. It is something that if we achieved it, we could all be justly proud of and would help a great many novices and people who have no ground of their own.
IF this did come about, and it is an if, I would expect it to be open to all members of the Stalking Directory, with or without Level 1, depending on their experience. However as PeteE mentioned this may not be possible through insurance purposes, or the conditions of the lease.
This is all a bit of a way off at the moment, but we will keep this on the boil and hopefully something may turn up in the way of a reasonable lease. I have a contact in Till Hill and I will Email him next week and see what might be around in the future.
I think this would be a great idea trapper.Trapper said:Why not ,I would be happy to contribute,
Perhaps with all the knowledge available here, we as a Group would be in a position to offer our own DSI 1 /2 , rather than the BDS/BASC and Colleges getting all the grabs!!Plough the money back into the Group, and really make a mark!.
(Don't throw that bottle ) well it would mean we can be a force to be reckoned with, Just a thought !!!.
Trapper(Pete e ) well done that man!

hi griffgriff said:There is a large estate close by, we have in the past considered approaching them with an offer for the stalking, but was unsure if we could fill enough days to pay the rent! they have red,roe and goat..
It is to late in the season now but we could make enquiries for next year,that would give time for all things relevant to be in place..
There is also a cottage that would be available.
The big question is would people be prepared to travel those sort of distances and how many?
We do have an inroad to these people as we have dealt with them for the last 10 years so there is a possibilty!
I will make tentative enquiries..
