As requested at the Sleepover, I've set up a Messenger Group for those people who are coming on the Kaper. If I've missed anyone, please feel free to add them to the Group.
I've posted the spreadsheet from the site on there - I'd be grateful if you'd confirm that your dates are correct and that the costs look right too.
@harryhornet has volunteered to lead the Konvoy down to the island - if you have any queries about the route, I'm sure he'll be happy to help.
The site can't confirm which pitches we'll have yet, although they have confirmed that we'll all be together - as soon as I know I'll pass on the info. It may be that I don't find out until we're on site, in the week ahead of the arrival of the main Kombi Krew, but I don't think we should be precious about the actual pitch number we're allocated within the group. I'll do my best to get an advance check in for you before you arrive, but I imagine they'll need to check passports, etc.
I know there'll be some of you who'd like to pitch next to each other and, wherever possible, we'll try and make that happen - similarly, maybe those with children will want to be together.
Probably the only ones who won't be able to switch will be us, as we'll have the same pitch for 3 weeks. Having said that, if it looks better that we move after a week, when you all arrive, we'll do our best to accomodate everyone else.
Finally, don't forget to let me know if you want to make any changes to your booking as soon as possible. @Happyhouse - I know you mentioned adding another person, so if you let me have Jordan's full name, date of birth, etc I'll contact the site.
I was able to get DazDub's deposit back for them when they cancelled, but only by persuading the site to allocate the money to my booking and I then refunded Daz separately. I really hope no one will cancel at this stage, but just bear in mind that if you do, after we've all paid the final amount, there won't be a return of your deposit.
The extended Bellamy family is getting a bit giddy about the trip - thanks to everyone who made Gabbie and Jay welcome at the Sleepover - they can't wait to see you again in France (and to come to the 2018 Sleepover!).

On the subject of refunds, remember to make sure that you have travel insurance in place before the balance is paid. That might at least give some cover if you need to cancel for reasons outside your control.
