    The original bootcamps were basically a weekend away where you bring books, dvds, music, games and your packs and we all spend a torturous weekend getting into ketosis with company! We stay in a big house or cluster of cottages, so no food temptations around. :cool:

    The main issues around organising Boot Camp are:

    (1) Lots of people stating interest but not coming up with the money. This means that booking a place turns into a nightmare, or someone take sa financial hit which is unacceptable. So it would be necessary to say first come, first paid, first served and keep it that way....

    (2) Location - a lot of people hate travelling, so it needs to be somewhere with good public transport for those that don't want/can't drive there;

    (3) Dates - give a small selection of dates, and the dates with the biggest amount of interest is it - no changing it afterwards!

    I (and a few others) would love to do something like this early this year - it can be really cheap because in essence you are just paying for a room and travel, you bring your packs with you.

    What we need to do now is ascertain interest - is it something you would want to do? Would you be willing to pay upfront? How far would you be prepared to travel?

    To register your initial interest, just post your name. :)

    Right, so this doesn't lose impetus, I reckon we need to put down some dates, and as Happe says start looking for somewhere to go! :cool:

    I can do alternate weekends starting from 31st January.

    Are you happy if I add a poll with dates on?
