The half-birthday is the 10th August. We had a picnic in Oxford the weekend of the 8th/9th August in 2009. It was good. We had it on 15th August 2010. The writer did not attend so has no comment as to if it was good. We didn't in 2011. That was bad.

The plan is Sunday 19th August in Oxford at Parson's Pleasure starting at 1pm. Back up location is the Fenton-Mays' house in Marston should the weather be inclement.

Bring partners and 'birthlings' and picnic food.

1. Location

Preferences for location expressed as follows:

Art would like us to watch him racing at 3pm and 4:15pm, probably, from Christchurch meadow or "marker B". Not that this is a lot later than lunchtime, and he's not planning on lunching, and it's quite inconvenient for those with pushchairs who are planning on lunching.

Tim Greaves would find PP/Marston quite handy in location, as would (I guess) the Fenton-Mays.

Amanda Kerr-Munslow and Ganesh Sittampalam need to deliver a bunch of stuff to the Fenton-Mays.
