Sorry you won't be there Dug but I understand your timescales weren't good. We'll raise a glass or ten to you anyway.
One of those? Oh I'm sure I have one somewhere..

You'll be missed Dug. See you in 2014 ;)
What's up with this glass? Excuse me? Excuse me? This is my glass? I don't think so. My glass was full! And it was a bigger glass!

Already in hand my dear Jan, I can book a minibus for a dozen of us and that way it won't cost so much per person. I will need to go by bus anyway as:

a) I'm buggered if I'm driving there again to watch you lot drink
b) I will be staying in the hotel as I will have moved well before then

Hey MAD - you need any subs for a deposit yet? Monday evening seems like a good time for our little jaunt :dance: :mrgreen: :dance:

I wanted one and so did someone else (Sjoerd & mC :lol: ) so there's a printable PDF Convention Timetable with live screen links to the events available for download
:dance: HERE :dance:

One thing with this document - The Pit and Dunmanifestin don't have much going on for most people, so they've been deleted where space was at a premium as they're only in use for rehearsals for the play on Monday (Eric) and as a kind of spill over/green room for the sects. Mostly where they've been cut there's nothing billed anyway ;)

I feel sick in a good way - with excitement :lol:

We're all gonna have such a great time at this I hope :twisted: I finally managed to get a call through to Meerkat today - she's really looking forward to getting together with everyone and should be in Birmingham in the early pm of Friday with luck :happy-jumpeveryone:

So, when is this knees-up again?

The rest of us are a bit crap.
