By the previous thread I hope I have got your attention and for all the Ladies & Gentlemen No offence is ever intended nor implied
This is at the express wishes of Alan P & the Crew of "The Jolly Sailor". As you are all probably aware the Team are due back in Portsmouth on Saturday August 9th.
I have been asked to help organise a Homecoming Party for the team and help celebrate what I am sure will be a major achievement by both men & machine.
The idea is that on Saturday the 9th as many Ribsters as possible meet the "Jolly Sailor" & her crew and escort her back into Portsmouth Harbour.
The Boat would then be lifted from the water and towed by the Portsmouth Field Gun Crew through the streets of Southsea back to the Jolly Sailor Pub where the celebrations are being held.
As part of the procession monies will also be collected from the public to present to the "Make-A-Wish Foundation", a charity for terminally ill children.
Our very own John "Pyromaniac" Kennett, will be providing an excellent display of his skills & large volumes of Wine, Woman & Song, will take us through to the wee small hours and Beer of Course. Not that Ribsters needs an excuse to drink & party.
So, I am asking all of you personally, & on behalf of Alan & the Team to come along and join us on the day; whether by boat or on foot, for a tremendous day of fun & merryment.
As there are certain logistical elements to this event, I would be very greatful if those of you who intend comming by water to let me know ASAP. Limitted space in the Camber Dock.
As the QHM Portsmouth is getting very nervous about a large number of Ribs entering his harbour & upsetting the sailing fraternity, God Forbid
As soon as I have more news I will post it on this thread ONLY so watch this space.
