Jambo I'm assuming that was a genuine question not a sneaky dig...

I think it refers to the Facebook thing ... Rigid hulled inflatable boats ... You know the boys from here who took their ball home when they got told off for being too rowdy in the sailing club bar analogy...

Thanks SS. It was indeed a serious question I was just curious incase it was something important that I had missed. I am not interested in who's ball it is!!

Yes we try not to mention the fb thing as everytime it kicks off, I think the dust has settled finally lol. we have had a very good year on rhibs and tbf post several links to ribnet, as both are great places imo. Whisper is an inspiration to all ribbers so I see no reason why both forum and group can't collaborate as in his words' it's all our story'

It looks like we have been selected from tens of thousands of applicants, ITV are going to make a film about our fundraising next week in southampton!

I think the film will be shown to a celebrity panel who will choose the regional finalist. We are the Southwest Region.

So I guess that we will be on TV soon...

Filming will be on either Monday or Tuesday next week and they want to interview some of you lot too.

Looks like I'll be off to Biffs to clean the workshop up a bit incase they want to film where the Macrib was built? I haven't spoken to ITV, Mrs W is doing all that.

All I can do is tell them what you lot did and how we did it.

If you know or were involved in our fundraising and want to be on TV then Please can you let me know.

Thanks

Alex
