Sadly not ! He has Plans of a Highly Confidential Nature.

OK. RIBnetters gathering in Cardiff at some stage to cheer on one of our premier Racers are as follows :
  • Team Bananashark (hopefully or we'll be going shopping instead )
  • Whiteshoes' Mystery Lady Navigator (he gave in and told us all about it in a pm / or another navigator if a Dark Horse enters the race today)
  • Mike B who has made arrangements to take us out to view the race (thank you very much)
  • Antoinette and Martin (accommodation to sort... will be done)
  • Ian Austin
  • Kwite possibly the Terrible Twins DM and RW in which case there will be help with the Accommodation issue (ta for pm Rogue Wave )
  • Paul and Kathleen aka The Jackeens
  • Fiona is still on the maybe list as she may have another appointment but she'll be there in spirit anyways.
Any other RIBnetters around / in the area / thinking of going to Cardiff?

Go on go on....you know you need a weekend away

Less than 2 1/2 hours to go now!

We will be arriving on Thursday sometime around lunch time - my number is 07836 268747 Kitten should have my phone when we are on the water. Would love to meet up in the evening with all of the ribnetters who are there if someone fancies finding a suitable location?
