Well this is it, La Forge IV is approaching like a freight train, and we
are just about ready to roll...
You'll see that the t-shirts are ordered, the beer is on it's way (thanks
to the Bad Manners Brewery), the band is ready and Lards's Disco is
So to make sense of all this we've put together an itinerary which you can
follow for the weekend's entertainment:
Friday 12th July
We'll be meeting you at the ferryport in Cherbourg at 13.00 French time
ready to transport you to La Haye du Puits. There you will be able to pick up
some additional items (probably not amaretto!) from the supermarche or local
shops; and then partake in a relaxing afternoon experiencing French cafe culture. We'll do a quick reconnaissance (why can't the French come up with
words like that?) on what's on/open when we arrive on Wednesday.
Then it's onto La Forge for a relaxing evening of cheese, wine, and UNCLE
ERIC'S quiz. We have some returning former winners. We hope to have put up

Saturday 13th July
A lazy continental breakfast followed by some energetic kayaking at
Saint-Sauveur-le-Vicomte. Some of us will be remaining at La Forge (and we may

The evening is the BBQ and Fancy Dress party (theme British pub names), the
band and the disco courtesy of Lards! We'll have the full band set up so if
anyone fancies doing a few numbers then feel free!
Sunday 14th July is Bastille Day so after another breakfast it's open plan.
There are any number of options available as long as we catch that ferry at
17.00! Beach anyone?
Hopefully we'll have enough beer, wine and cider to keep the show on the
road, but if you need spirits to get you into the spirit we'll be stopping so
you can get supplies.
