GaryCantley    -- Mar-22-2009 @ 8:26 PM
  Just to let you all know that there is a terrific prize up for grabs at this weeks quiz.

I will be the questionmaster having been the girly swat at last weeks affair Playful

So thats FRIDAY 27th MARCH at 8.30pm.

If you want to be in with a chance of winning there are two ways this can be done.

Take pot luck by turning up on Friday evening or try to bribe me (all proceeds towards forum funds LOL ).

If you are going for the latter make em good, I cant be bought cheaply LOL

In my case it wasn't luck at all, (more like being deranged) it was a dream and determination that got us here.

And yes, it is lovely to go to the Broads when I like, only I can't go as often as I would like (Mrs G. / Offspring / House / Friends / Tiger / Work - they all nicely get in the way from time to time and then of course there is the financial side of things  Scared  our mooring fees and river toll are due now = £2'200 BUT I'm not complaining and wouldn't have it any other way.

You can!!!  just get together with some like minded friends and go for it!!

Besides both of you could be afloat on 'Broad Ambition' for a weekend this year, just enter the raffle for a weekend afloat on the other thread via G.C and then keep your fingers crossed.

I will of course take some photo's and do a write up, I do those just for those forumites that can't get afloat as much as they would like so to keep your 'Fingers on the Pulse' as it were.

If I got one sniff of a suggestion that I was being considered

'Holier than Thou' or 'Look at Me or 'I'm an Owner Now'  

I'd stop them in an instant and would go and hide in a dark corner of the bilge in an instant

I've not changed a bit and still consider myself a hirer, (As I do every October) one of us as it were.
