Could the couple not be persuaded to come back to organising things? (Not that Nashers not good at it)
No, I'm afraid they have moved on.

But I think and hope that 2010 could see a revival of something similar.

It doesn't matter who organised the get togethers. The thing was it was done really well (thank you Jackeens) and we had many successful years. The bottom line is that we are missing this sort of involvment and could well do with someone taking the bull by the horns and getting some venues and Ideas for next year.

The time to start is now!

... and you're still nursing a grudge 'cos they said they'd "rondayvoo" with you at the Isle of Man?

Still, good to see they went out in a blaze of glory.


anyway, I think Why Knot sounds like a good "Ents" Officer, that gig needs a "Duracell* Bunny" to go the extra mile.

I'm sure I can persuade Darren to get involved and help and I'm clearly more than happy to.

Nasher/Hightower - if you could give some steer and direction that would be good, I don't want to stand on any toes - so happy to be an extra pair of hands if anyone else is keen to take the role on.

I have to go into hospital early December and then off work for 6 weeks (nothing serious) so will have plenty of time on my hands to get a few ideas off the ground.

Emsworth/Portsmouth is probably best for us in terms of everybody else - unless people can be persuaded to meet around Chichester??

Maybe a poll to see what people think

bedajim - here's a yawn for you as we all know how much you love these "nice" conversations
