I don't want to interfere guys however, what we have found with threads which are very popular like this one, is that initially there is a lot of chat to encourage the event.

When it gains momentum, start another, more specifically aimed at the topic.

Hope this helps...

I have a feeling the barbe may never be truly finished, not until there is a smoke house and steam room attached anyway.

Cool!

Do you need an Alderney marshall to make sure the boats pass Alderney outside of a mark, or are they allowed to come inside the reef if they feel brave enough?
