Yes it's a very good idea and I'm sorry I didn't reply earlier Scratch, I thought I had - I fear my marbles have got jumbled up!

Whilst I'm here, is there anybody  else with an idea of workshop or something to keep us all busy?

Heavens, oh fornication!  I knew this crappy callendar I was given with teddy bears on was rubbish   >:(

The correct date is 13-14 April   and now since I'm here, any more suggestions for passing the time?

I have been checking with the Webbingtion and it seems we only have 5 of the rooms taken ... so now I do need to ask that if you are intending to come and have not booked yet, then can you!?

Please!

Last time, as I recall we were short of rooms so I booked the 10 again for this year and do not really want to mess the hotel about as they do put up with us  :D

Also whilst in public appeal mode and assuming we will be there are the any more offers of talks\workshops\conjuring tricks\cookery tips or anything to keep us spellbound on our seats in the infamous library?

I have tried Richard...  It seems that the webbington admin and customer service has fallen away somewhat since our first visit.  When I called, I was told that they could not take my booking without talking to the events managers to confirm prices (albeit I confirmed them from your post).  They insisted that they would have to call back.  But didn't.  I'll try again shortly!

I think there is something that I can do to fill the time- but it wont be particularly lengthy (or illuminating!)

You could go to the car park, chop down a tree and show us how to make a guitar. That should fill a couple of hours?

Prof, I'll bring my chopper...

Slim, I appreciate your efforts, if you get further trouble then let me know and I'll ring 'em.

Let's see how it goes, maybe we are nearing the end of the road.?

For a variety of reasons, I have decided to give it a miss this year. Hope you'll all behave yourselves without me and somebody else takes some snaps of the event.

That's good news Slim, maybe they were just having a bad day or !

On the other hand, PP very sorry to hear you won't be joining the festivities, we were all looking forward to your solos..

Now who else is lurking out there, yet to book?

I have to say response seems a slow this year, I still have 3 rooms left and the hotel are wondering if they will be taken - I certainly don't want to be lumbered with anything! 

For those that make the effort to come on the day a thank you, that though  that doesn't help the hotel bookings. So, sadly after doing this for many years what I am trying to say is that this may be the last event I will put on - finding somewhere to take us has always been a struggle, but with the hotel keen to fill it's rooms and a lack of weenie type punters there is little I can do and I certainly don't need the headache.

Ergo, if you are intending to come then please let me know NOW else I will release the reservation of the remaining rooms at the end of the week
