OK Mark, we'll make an exception for you. You can come in normal garb just as long as you promise not to laugh at the rest of us.

Froglover - Sorry you, Kev and the tadpoles can't make it. Hope to see you soon.

Sorry to hear that Dieseluser - have a good show!

Hope you (& Wiesia?) can make it Andre. It'd be good to see you again.

Update

Informal plan for the day

10.00 - meet at Calshot, in vicinity of lifeboat
11.00 onwards - arrive at Yarmouth, purposeful mooching around
12.00ish - lunch in The Wheatsheaf
13.30 - depart Yarmouth
14.30ish - arrive at Ryde, more purposeful mooching, refreshments, toilet
16.00 - depart Ryde (a drying harbour, timings take account of this) for River Medina
17.00ish - arrive at The Folly Inn for tall tales, fishy stories, etc.

Here's an added incentive to persuade a few more of you to come along: Paul (Timboli) has been working hard on our behalf and secured discounted rates for launching at Calshot Activities Centre. On arrival you must stop at a booth. If you say that you are attending the informal 'RIBnet Treasure Hunt' cruise you will be asked to pay just 8.25 to launch & recover a boat up to 6m and park your car & trailer there (usual cost is 11) and just 10.50 to launch & recover a boat over 6m and park your car and trailer (usual cost is 14). Of course you do not have to launch at Calshot but hopefully this might enable a few of you to be extra generous at the end of the day!

Pencilled in participants (in sort of alphabetical order):

Andre
Andy
David Manning
John Kennett
Jono (t'other one)
Mark Halliday
Nauti Buoy
Neal
Nick Hearne
Noddy
Peter J
Richard B & Louise
Rich L
Robin
Rogue Wave
Simmons 0
Timboli & Runaground Sue
Whiteshoes

I know some of you are not able to confirm yet but it would be useful if you could give us a definite 'yay' or 'nay' at some point. Later this week I will PM Richard's mobile number to all participants so any last minute cancellations can be made. Sorry to sound a bit bossy but we don't want to leave anyone behind, but equally so we cannot wait around for no-shows as Ryde harbour is tidal. Tide and weather info to be posted soon.

It's not too late to join in! Please post soon if you would like your name to be added to the list!

See you there!!

Hi Louise
We are camping at either Gosport or Warsash over the weekend and, weather permitting, we will join you and launch at Calshot around 9.30am.
Looking forward to this one but havent managed to get a "pirate rig".
We will just look "Mean"!
regards
Martyn and Ann

Looking forward to meeting you Martyn and Ann. Have you been practising your 'mean looks' and growling? Just promise you won't laugh at us in our costumes!
