I concur and as it's JK's site and group maybe he should decide time and place and we all fall into line. But I suppose nothing in cast in stone yet.

There's always London Boat show to break up the winter months - how about 2 meets

Regarding Cowes - I must be one of the few who actually like the place.

Accomodation

Hi Guys

When ever i stay in Cowe i stay at the Duke of York pub just out side the marina. Its good accomodation and fairly cheap etc. They have about 30 rooms and i think 2 flats. The number is Duke of York Mill Hill Rd., Cowes 295171.

Or click on this link and it list lots of B & B s and Public houses that we could stay in .

www.cowes.co.uk

I think Yarmouth is much nicer to stay in but not sure of accomodation there.

Julian

It's not really my group, I just help it along

Someone does need to decide the time and place though, and it can be anyone who is prepared to make the effort to organise the meet.

Perhaps this ought to be the second OFFICIAL RIBnet conference . . .

Hi

Decide on a DATE. Stick to it. People can then make their arrangements as needed. Some people will be available, others will not. You will never find a weekend that will suit everybody.

I'm out for the first week in June as it is my 30th wedding anniversary and we will be away on holiday, but I wouldn't expect anyone to change their arrangements for me.

The sooner you can decide on a date the sooner it can go in people's diaries.

For the sake of simplicty, Just run with the dates and location of RIBEX, if you dont want to go ribbing you can look at them ,and touch them and talk about them, in RIBEX , and if you get Pissed off with HMS or whatever your problem might be? you can go out in your Rib, or someone elses???

And the socal life will be good

But most of all it means I dont have to plan 2 trips to the UK for Rib related events.......and that means I stay married a bit longer...

As "official" 2nd organiser, and since 90% of people seam to agree with this it's set in stone now. Book holiday, send wifes and kids to the inlaws...

As for my suggestion of a 2nd Inaugural RIBnet Conference, it's all part of my warped sense of humour i'm affraid.

I suggest we make this a 3 day event, try and gather somewhere for the two evenings for a social and get some cruises in as well.

Friday 4th: ?
Sat 5th: Visit RIBex en-mass
Sun 6th: Round-the-island cruise

Oi!

This is not just a MALE sport you know.

There are a few of the fairer sex doing it too you know. Consider yourself reprimanded!!
