OK let’s get crackin’

The first thing I want to do is to create my own e-mail list.
Rib.net does not show me your true e-mail address and more importantly, it does not allow me to attach documents to e-mails.

So I want all of you who wish to express an interest in a trip to The Scilly’s this year to e-mail me DIRECT at:
bdmelliott@aol.com
with the answers to as many of these questions as you can.
This does of course not commit anyone.

We don’t yet have any dates. Daniel suggested 16/17/18 April. Others think June/July.
So Question No. 1. When would you like to go? (It will be a 3-dayer). When I have your answers I will distill a best-fit date from the replies and then impose it.

Q2. Where would you like to start from? I will then draw up a rolling start schedule.

Q3. Would you like/or accept, to be the leader of the cruise on the day. You don’t need to be Captain Bligh, just sensible. I will organise the cruise for you, but cannot promise to be there.

Once I have created this e-mail list, I will then send you lots of information via e-mail in MS Word and MS Excel format.

Alan Priddy and John Kennett-would you like to be cc-ed on the e-mails?
This is not a BIBOA cruise and is open to anyone who wants to go.

We need to move fast chaps as booking your accommodation in the islands is your first priority.

So far the following have expressed an initial interest via this thread:
The Bryster, CJL, Biggles, gingercoastie, Delta.Charlie, Searider, Cookee, Daniel, Peter J., pettal, Roy Smith, mstacey, behaving (already there!!), Andy Cox, Nick Hearne and Steven Barlow.

Crikey if only half of you turn up it should be a real outing.

OK, I have 6 replies so far.
Most people seem to prefer end May/beginning of June or later.

Any more expressions of interest?
I would like to set a target date by Monday if possible.

After polling for preferred dates and a leader, I am pleased to say Andy Cox has stepped forward and agreed to lead a group down and around the Scilly’s on the 9th, 10 and 11th July, which is before the school holiday starts.
I am e-mailing all those on my list (and by request to anyone else) a “route down to the islands” map with suggested RV points for those who wish to join.
I anticipate starters from Torbay, Salcombe, Plymouth, Falmouth, and Penzance, at the moment.
I am also supplying documents dealing with all other items relating to the cruise.
Please read them carefully and be aware the most important thing to do right away is to book accommodation. The dates have been picked, in part, because they occur before official school holidays begin.
As participants clarify their intentions, and nearer the time, I will publish details of meeting times and of each attendee.

Thanks Brian (& andy), in my diary but i am unable to commit this early since i may well have sold top-banana by then. If that happens i'll think about chartering a tub for the weekend.

Peter J. (and Others)

I appreciate what you are saying about childrens school holidays.

Two points though:
Firstly accommodation in the Scilly's is very expensive and a lot of people want to minimise this.
Secondly. Just because these dates have been chosen, does not mean you cannot go when you wish. The dates above are when Andy can commit to lead.
If you (or anyone else) wants to go at another time, I am totally happy to forward to you all the info I am posting to those on my e-mail list. But you MUST give me your e-mail address. I cannot send you enclosures via rib.net.

I also will not be able to attend outside of school holidays, but if the other half agrees we could go for the whitsun weekend and make it a pre-scout for the main cruise later on.

Cruise 9/10/ and 11 July

I now have a number of possible/ probables for this trip.
Bryster, CJL, Biggles, Delta.Charlie, Searider, Cookee, Daniel, pettal(?), Roy Smith, Andy Cox (Leader), Andy Micklewright and Richard/Louise.

The following have indicated that these dates are not good for them but would prefer a second cruise, maybe at Whitsun.
gingercoastie, Peter J., Nick Hearne, Steven Barlow, and Peter-Joyce.

Is anyone prepared to lead a cruise for this second (but select) group?
