Alternatively we could stop being so damned stubborn and just use Euros!

(What went wrong with the doughnut??)

well i wouldn't dream of telling those who stride albion's plains what currency to use but at least the pound is worth something. the thing about the euro no-one seems to have copped on to is that in every country save ireland one euro is worth more than one franc or deutschmark or kroner or whatever BUT one euro is worth LESS than one punt. so instead of going out for a few pints with 20 punts now you have to bring 50 euros so everything seems DAMN DEAR. now one pound sterling is worth even more than one punt so if ye lot in blighty ever bring it in prepare for APOPLEXY! now gavin you know the english are famous for their insularity, they have no more intention of pricing in euros than in zlotys so don't bother their heads. and as for the euro fiver it is the most decrepit piece of crap i have ever seen. it disintegrates on contact with guinness. ermm.. what was this thread all about??

Ribex 2004 or Alternatives?

Hi Guy's & Dolls',

"CRIKEY, you guys can whinge and complain!! Just like a bunch of old Grumpy Men"

I aggree with you Charles on this point, but is that not our nature?

I for one will be going to I.o.W. Ribex 04. Just to see how it works and obviously compare it to previous shows.

However, I am fortunate to live relatively local 15mins by Rib from Pompey, appologises to all Ribsters North of the Watford Gap!

I also like the idea of another Ribnet Cruise especially in the summer.

So with both feet forward and life jacket to the ready, Would you fellow Ribsters like me to put something together for next year?

Daniel I would need some help if you can spare the time.

Ideas on a pm please

Cheers

I've read through the whole thread again, and I disagree that people are whinging and complaining. People have mentioned various things that they think are good, or bad, about previous exhibitions. This is called having a discussion!

Charles, your ability to be so positive about everyone and everything is a constant source of wonder, but it doesn't help if (like RIBEX 2003) the show fails to materialise . . .

John

John
I'm very pleased I am keeping you in wonderment

If this is not whinging then I don't know what is??

"Cowes is hard to get to
rather see the show than spend the time travelling
it's a drag to get the coast
Cowes has to be one of the unfriendliest harbours in the world.
It is full idiots who have just got into boating and have very little idea how to moor up let alone handle the boat....Cowes, you can keep it...
Well thats a nice and easy location to get too!!!!!!!!!!!!
Great the most Unfriendliness place in the Solent
a RIBEX that no one can visit unless we go by ferry from Southampton.
Great Planning if you ask me.
Is a bit daft isn't it"

Hey that's handy, i was about to volunteer myself so between us we can sort something out.

I think we'll need some help from more experienced cruise organisers like Brian and Charles though.

See new thread in cruising section (havent created it yet, so gimme a few minutes)

Great idea - I think Kevin and Daniel would make a lovely pair - organise away.
ps Don't forget to order the laurel leaves to place on the walk-way where John K is about to walk

Totally agree with your posts about the euro Gavin; there is no reason why we can't offer both .

On my travels in Europe I have found the euro acceptable in places like Hungary Slovenia and Croatia -in fact you won't be suprised to know that they are preferred in some cases to the local notes.If those can manage so can we .I bekieve that some of the major stores offer the facility in London. In any event it would undoubtedly increase sales.

We can ignore the political side for now but use the euro as well.Many people I know now keep a stock of Euros because of its widespread use i.e. they dont bother to reconvert to sterling pending another trip to Eurozone
