'Spirit of Cardiff' Return Arrangements



Hello folks,

Thought I'd get in early.

Has any one made any arrangements for a welcome home RIB & SIB gathering yet?

Cheers

Keith (it's not the size that counts) Hart

Okay, despite several 'problems' SoC is well on it's way now and we can look forward to a triumphant return. We knew the start date at Cardiff so we could make arrangements to get down there for the weekend. With the return date not being set in stone this is more difficult to make arrangements for.

I am presuming that the record actually finishes in Gibraltar on whatever day of the week it happens to be. Does this mean that they will actually return to Cardiff on a weekend, or will they return on a weekday? Are there any arrangements in place at CBYC for use of the slip? Will PoB (jools) be there again? Will Bill have an engine for his Avon by then?

Help, Nadia, where are you?

Cheers

Keith (even more questions) Hart

Nothing has been planned yet, but it is likely that the return to Cardiff will be on a weekend, and we'll probably have a week or so notice -- possibly longer.

Keith, I thought you would have stayed well away from PoB?

Just a thought......

At the send off weekend (happy and painful memories), Bill and I had crew badges. Yes, this was a bit of a larrf, but it was also that people would know WHO we were. I met loads of people and it was often a bit difficult to tie the real names to the RIBNET and boat names. I know I met a few people who I couldn’t place!

An aside……

Geoff, we met on the pontoon, it was only some time later that inside my thick skull (proven by the resistance to impact on PoB) that I put the Geoff and Boatlaunch together. Well, I’m presuming it was one and the same.

Back to subject……

So how about me doing badges for us all in time for the return. I know that the PoB crowd eventually figured out who everyone was but there were others who did not stay with us. There will also be MORE RIBs and SIBs there for the return. The badge could state the forums name, real name and boat name. I’ll provide the laminated badges but you’ll have to provide your own badge holder (Staples have them).

By the way, I haven’t forgotten the certificates.

I think Badges are a great idea.

As you say you will need the persons's real name, Boat Name - would you need the Rib Net name as well to link up?

If you make them a little more 'generic', rather than SOC based, we could use them at any futre cruises / get togethers

Go for it

Graeme
