Hi,

I would like to come along to this meet, I am a Newbie but have been a member for a while.

The only thing is I have to apply for leave from work and I wont find out if its been granted until 2 days before the meet which is a pain. I would ideally like EHU as my mother who would be with me has medications that need to be kept chilled and also a mains powered Nebuliser.

Could you please put me down as a maybe and I will confirm for definite as soon as I know.

Thanks so much

Rich

I wish Carol!

It's a mates birthday bash on the Saturday. Another friend is going who is dying of Heart Disease and it is probably the last time I will get to see him. He has said he is making a special effort in order to see me before he goes. He's a long time boating buddy and a nicer man you could never meet. Very sad news and I wouldn't miss next weekend for anything.

Under different circumstances I would love to go to Upton, I am a big fan of the Blues. Maybe next year.

Like your thinking Mark, but we are a small team, and I don't have the luxury of saying 'sod it'. It will just be nice to see anybody on Thurs, if they are about.

Wrong attitude you have the luxury you are just afraid of using it 😀

Interesting angle Charlie, but if I said 'sod it', so would the whole team and then I probably wouldn't get to any Meets at all! Some might say that's a good thing!
Seeya Thurs?

looks like I might have spoken to soon, be lucky to get there by Friday now as dog has pulled another sickie so won't be able to get him into kennels unless he improves and turns out a solid turd or two, to top it all on the way back from the vets seems I've blown the turbo on my everyday van.

So sorry for such short notice but I can't make the meet. Fell onto some metal bars in the middle of Tues night and hurt my ribs. Today I gave in and went to the docs. Advised driving any distance was not a good idea so there goes the weekend. Hope it's a good one and that the weather is kind. Have fun.

Ann and I have just returned from a fantastic six days at Brandon; a lovely relaxing time. The weather gods were definitely on our side; in fact I would say, at some times, a tad too hot.......not that I'm complaining. I would like to take this opportunity to thank Paul for organising it, all those involved in the barbeque (it was lovely) and everybody else who turned up and made it an enjoyable meet.

Survived another scorching weekend at Brandon without melting... just about! What a lovely relaxing time, with good weather, great company and lots of fab food. Big thanks to Paul for organising and to all the girls for BBQ, toasties, scones, cake, etc, etc :tongue: Just remind me next time to take it easy on the Bailey's! :o

As ever, it turned into a mini-fixit at times with all the gents diving into their man-caves for bits of kit to sort out problems on various vans. I was really surprised to find no less than 3 heroes at the door today, armed and ready to persuade my sooty fridge to behave itself... I hadn't even asked! Can't thank you enough Charlie, Lee and Barrie - next round's on me.

Thanks everyone for a great weekend.
