Chris Rudland and I have been discussing the possibility of arranging a Suffolk coast meet in late Spring/early Summer. We are tentatively looking at one of the last three weekends in June (I'm in Toronto the first weekend) or early July, but of course the date will depend on attendees' availability.
Initial ideas we've had for suitable locations include http://www.multimap.com/map/browse.cgi?client=public&X=650000.814378997&Y=275000.680229183&width=700&height=400&gride=650724.814378997&gridn=275989.680229183&srec=0&coordsys=gb&db=freegaz&addr1=&addr2=&addr3=&pc=&advanced=&local=&localinfosel=&kw=&inmap=&table=&ovtype=&keepicon=true&zm=0&scale=100000&up.x=289&up.y=8]Southwold (great for sunrises....approx 4.30am at that time of year). Other areas in that vicinity :
The River Blyth, especially the part of it at Blythburgh where it has an identity crisis and thinks it's a lake;
Walberswick, an archetypical Suffolk coastal village. I can see EPZers having a hayday with those fishermen's huts in the harbour;
Covehithe and Benacre.
There are plenty of sites to choose from in this area, and these are just a few suggestions. They can easily be changed if people have other ideas.

Not sure what happened to the Southwold link. I'll try again....here.
I'll probably be up for this - any of those weekends are OK at the moment
It would be great if you could make it, Paul.
wayhay, I've been keeping an eye out for a local meet - well I have links down there so it's local enough - it's a long time off but I'm definately interested. Only weekend definately out is 19 May.
The whole area is fantastic, and although they are not my most regular haunts, (Aldeburgh, Sizewell and Thorpeness) I'm keen to explore further afield round there!
Great to hear, Sus.
Just had a look at your website Ian - only briefly as it made me quite sad - I miss the Suffolk countryside so much and your pictures really show its beauty. I love Cambridge, but miss the coast and heaths. I know your home village - had a schoolfriend who lived there - well any excuse to get down to the coast! (Unfortunately can't make the Norfolk one in Feb).
Definitely up for this have been meaning to go down to Suffolk for ages.
I'd be up for this and can do either of the last two weekends in June (at the moment!) but I can't do the first weekend in July. My sisters wedding and guess who's doing the 'togs!
Count me in Ian.
Count me in too (and not just because of the Adnams Brewery)

Saturday & Sunday 17/18 June
Saturday & Sunday 24/25 June
(the second weekend of June (10th & 11th) is looking a little difficult for me).
Might be up for this as I sometimes work over that way, so all down to timing.
Someone can continue my "This is a landscape lesson"
Cheryl, It would be great if you could make it.
Benacre is an English Nature national nature reserve with over 100 breeding species of birds, including the Marsh Harrier and the Bittern. So, if you get fed up with boring old landscapes.... :o)
Hi Ian I would also be interested in this, is it going to be a Sunrise meet, sunset meet or all day? As if its going to be all day in June its going to be a real long day.
