THE BIG THANKYOU THREAD! (Rib.net gathering)

OK, I know that Kevin & Daniel wont be back until tonight (cos the lucky so and so's went to Alderney yesterday) but need to register my thanks for a superbly well organised weekend. Laura and I had a fantastic time and it was great to catch up with old friends and some new ones.

Also huge thanks to Richard & Louise for a) taking us out on Blue Ice and b) allowing me to hog the driving ALL weekend. Brought back happy memories!

Cheers,
Alan

I second that. Big thank you to Kevin & Kathryn for the organisation of a fantastic weekend. Great to meet everyone and the trip round the Island on Saturday was just top banana!!

Hope everyone made it to Alderney and back without incident.

Bill & Janet

I agree Kevin and Daniel did great job over the weekend organise this venue and there will be many things to remember, it was great putting faces behind some common and uncommon names to members of RIB.net special thanks to Kathleen and Paul, SimmonsO for having me on board Treasure hunta allowing me to try their Solent rib, Jackie and Mikey for going out on R5, Andre for the ride on the Parker 900, Adam Younger and Cookee for sharing information on racing procedures nowedays with me. It is difficult thanking all of you in person so if I leave someone out it is not the intention my brain is just obviously not big enough. Willowkis and family it was great meeting you.

ps.

Oh dear now I saw Suzuki Pete is online I totally forgot to have a ride on his boat yesterday morning, Sorry PETE as described above my brain was not big enough over the weekend, we will have a go another day.

Sorry I missed the main event again, but lots of thanks to Kevin and the bunch of RIBnetters who forced me to drink Champagne when I finally arrived at 10am on Sunday!

Big thank you to Kevin and Daniel for all there hard work organising the weekend, and thank you to Alan P for the talk on Sat evening. However I think I prefer ice in my gin rather than under the keel

I would like to say hi to all the people Kitten and myself met over the weekend - despite a few little problems we had a great time and hope next year is bigger and better!


Thanks Kevin - I would have bought you another pint on Fri night but you didn't look like you needed one!
