RIB event / conference

I would like to float an idea.

We have been talking about next year and are considering organising a RIB weekend here in Southampton to coincide with one of the RIB shows.

Aimed at Leisure Ribbers we would run a number of workshops with a few guest speakers and maybe an evening RIB blast before a few beers. The following day would be free to attend the show. The plan would be to keep the cost low.

Does this sound of interest?

Doug, great idea. A social event in the evening would be good too,

Pete

Thanks for interest. Parking is no problem, neither is trailer storage, we don't have a slip on site but there are plenty near by, I can organise overnight berthing if necassary with the marina.

Evening social is an absolute definate

Hi Doug

Sounds like a great idea.
If I can help in any way please don't be scared to ask, happy to help out.
Maybe run a DSC/Radio workshop?

Good luck with the project

Best regards

Jon

Jon thats a good idea, do you have the equipment to actually measure a VHF output to confirm its somewhere near 25 watts, can a radio ariel be measured to see if its working properly, sort of a health check on your VHF system for a nominal fee if peeps bring there ribs along ?

Sorry, only just read this. Great idea, we'd be up for it (assuming it doesn't clash with any sailing!).

Doug,

If you could give us plenty of notice of dates please. I need to book time off work if I'm on shift. Not a problem with a decent amount of notice.
