I recently put a teaser out about possibly having a meet at Yorkshire Wildlife Park and a few people showed an element of interest, so I thought I’d post something properly. For those unaware of YWP, this is a park that is quickly growing and is home to 3 prides of Lions, Tigers, Polar Bears, Giant Otters, Lemurs and Leopards along with the usual Zebra and Giraffe’s. One great thing about YWP is that in virtually all the enclosures you have unrestricted views available so you don’t have to worry shooting through those ugly fences. I will post a link below. For those used to places like Whipsnade, this isn’t the largest of the parks as it is still relatively young, I am normally able to do 2 circuits in a day, which means that even if they aren’t playing first time round, they normally are by the time you return.

The park itself is about 5-10 minutes off the M18 near Doncaster, so access is easy for those with cars (parking is also free).

With regards to dates I was thinking of Saturday 6th April, this is a couple of weeks before the Easter Holidays. The park opens at 10 so would meet just outside the entrance at about 9.55.

THose that expressed an interest were:

@Cobra
@Rustydon (who may just jump over the fence)
@Gremlin
@michael23

Confirmed:

Maybe:

Hi everyone. Apologies for lack of updates. I’ve been a little busy of late as we are getting ready to move house, so I haven’t getting much time to get online. Still looking to head up myself

Hi all. It is with deep regret that I am going have to postpone my attendance to this. We have just been informed that we will be moving house next Friday and it is more than my life is worth to abandon the wife on the Sunday to go and have fun (she's got a list of jobs going on for miles!) I will however be re-arranging this for later in May once, we have got a little more settled.

If anyone wants to hijack the thread and continue they are more than welcome.

May suits me better, Chris - hope the house move goes ok :)
