Pendlemac, welcome to the forum  Cheers

The meet is open to all members regardless of when they joined. Please be aware that if you arrive by boat, it is most likely that you'll have to mudweight though. There will be a ferry service to shuttle people to and from mudweighted boats.

If afloat, please arrive at the island after 12 noon on the Saturday (21/6/08).

If arriving by car, there will be a free ferry service to the island. If you can supply an approximate ETA we can arrange to have a ferry on its way ready for your arrival. Failing that, a mobile phone contact number for the ferry service will be posted shortly.

Oh yes...it's best if you sign up in the Forum Events section. Gives us a better idea of numbers so we can provision accordingly. Thanks.

John

Hi Robin

The usual supply of several kegs of draft something. Hopefully will be along the lines of

2 x real ale
1 x cream ale
1 x stout

perhaps one of something else.

It all depends what has conditioned sufficiently.

There will be a couple of dozen gallons of something drinkable, touchwood.

Regards

Paul

Dear Members,

Just to let you know you have been liberated from an oft derided "meet requirement" this year - that of the sticky name label!

So many folk now know each other we thought we would dispense with them this year. I appreciate there are some "forum meet virgins" but hopefully that will mean that everyone will have to mingle. I honestly don't think anyone will be too shy to join in!

However, the meet organisers (for our sins!) WILL be labelled so you know who we are. Miss Clipboard (aka me) will be looking out for you all, and will hopefully be able to point you in the direction of members you are looking for. I will also have a supply of blank labels for those who want to declare themselves, as it where!  We'll have a list of those attending to make sure we don't get any passing holidaymakers, but its not too late to add your name to the sign up list, and although I'll be printing lists etc for Chief Moorings Manager Dibs etc next weds/thurs, I will check for any late additions before we leave home friday.

Hope this is OK with you all - speak up if you have any points to raise.

One last thought - do we need a mugshots post of organisers for those of you who don't know us by sight?

Lookng forward to seeing everyone,

Karen

Karen my dear,

Just how are the 'B.A' crew supposed to recognise each other let alone anyone else then eh ??  Blush

Bouncy Castle –

We are sort of sorted over collection / returning this from the Norwich area.

I’m determined that the kids will not miss out on having it there, to that end I’ve rallied to the call from Steve n Vicky, but it’s far from ideal and will involve me re-arranging our plans to suit the bouncy castle.

We were planning to be overnight at Thurne Dyke / Horning with a visit to P.H as some of our crew onboard don’t get down that often and we like to get them about to see some of the system whenever possible.

The situation now is that when we arrive at Stalham v.late on Thursday 19th after dropping gear off from the ‘GriffTile’ van I will then drive it round to the Maltsters car park, one of my crew will have to follow me there to bring me back via road to Stalham. Friday night now means that we will now have to be at Malthouse Broad for the evening so that on Saturday morning I can jump in the van and go off to Norwich somewhere to collect said castle, back to Ranworth and then over to the island with it and drop it off along with the rest of the gear we are bringing.
We will then depart with ‘B.A’ for P.H hopefully not too late, and return to the ‘Meet’ at a time instructed by our Harbour Master for either a mudweight or land berth.

Sunday lunchtime we will have to get the lot over to the van again, I’ll then drive to Norwich to return castle, I could then do with one volunteer to meet me at Stalham and drive me back to Malthouse Broad.

So it will work in a fashion, the key for us is to get away early enough from Malthouse Broad on Sat forenoon.

Griff
