I would like to suggest Port Solent as an alternative weekend meeting venue and leave the Churchillian as a Monday meet for the time being.

The down side to this, is that the "Minority" feel undermined and left out and so try to act-up (you know who you are) for resons only known by themselves. For these resons the couple decided that they would move away from organising this type of event and did something different. A sad loss in my opinion as the following 2 years were much quieter with regards meets etc.
Always wondered where they went? No animosity there then? They just moved on?

Thanks for the history lesson folks.

It has always been interesting to keep in touch with you lot. A bit of background always helps.

Sorry I can't pop over for a pint! (But will be in Poole in May for a wedding).

It is always good to connect / meet up with people who share our interest. I always love to get out in a group here (as at Halloween). Just a pity there seems to be only Willk an I from the other side of the sea posting here.

never worry about the begrudgers KN - just go round em.

best of luck JSP and KN and hope your stay in 'Prison' is short and changes things positively for you.

They bought and renovated a house on the Brittany Coast on the beach I believe. I never had the pleasure to stay there, but there was a RIBnet get together there once when Whiteshoes navigated by Sea Via the Channel Islands and along the Coastline. The others Towed their boats there.

Priory Bay
Saw your Xmas thread Chris, and if I'm here, I'm there

Have also been thinking today we should rearrange the Priory Bay BBQ and camping weekend again... the 2 I went to were both great fun... so started a post on that... might be changing job again in Jan, so could get a bit more time in UK March to July

I have high hopes for young Zube. He has What it Takes. He may even be made of The Right Stuff. Frankly, he scares me a bit...
