Hi Folks.
I was told that the water taxis did not run this year. Will they be running next year or is it guess work?
I ask as a keen boater.

Earlier this year the parks water taxi's had to have various work done for the license renewal, just the same as any other taxi. Then the floods etc caused a lot of damage to the 'taxi's' and the mooring so as you say, the taxi's did not run this year. The site staff are making no promises, but hope to have them running again from next easter when the season re-starts.

Although last minute bookings are ok, I could do with confirmed names and which forum(s) you belong to before hand just to have some idea how many to expect and from where.
It will also help the site owners if they have some idea how many to expect.

It is a large field that could easily take 100 units, but my gazebo might be a bit stretched to accomodate everybody.

No deposits required when booking, I will collect o/n fees as people arrive.

Stratford upon Avon Riverside Park get together 2008

PANIC STATIONS !!
PLEASE NOTE THE DATES FOR THIS GET TOGETHER ARE NOW
FRIDAY 25TH APRIL TO MONDAY 28TH APRIL.

In the past, the Birthday celebrations have always been held on the weekend AFTER St Georges Day.
Stratford Council in their wisdom announced the 2008 celebration would br brought forward a week, the weekend BEFORE St Georges Day, so I booked the rally field for the weekend before St Georges day, 2008.
The Shakespeare Trust have now just released the dates for 2008 as reverting to the normal weekend, the one AFTER St Georges day!!!!

A few hectic phone calls this morning, trying to make sure which weekend the celebrations will be, and I have managed to change the dates with Riverside Park.

I'm sorry if this causes diary problems with some of you, but in the words of a politician, "It ain't my fault"

Voxy.

NOW FRIDAY 25TH APRIL TO MONDAY 28TH APRIL.
