Misquote there ? or is it ?

Was going to suggest 11.30 at some suitable bouy in the Solent so we can do group photo pics and the Speilbergs can get footage etc ?

Maybe South Bramble Bouy @ 11.30 ?

Thats half an hour of 'stuff' and then a gentle cruise up the river ?

Down to the last few for menu choices now...( I'll let Avocet off as has been doing proper good work sort of for me in the last month & 250 came up with some 'Hurricane' excuse .... ) .

Mooring space is not a concern as Biff says loads of room on the river in December I am sure.

What is a concern is I still need menu from ;

Avocet ..come on David !
Paul H- I'm guessing probably building something fast and stylish....?

I dont have a contact for Paul , but if someone can nudge him if they have a number for him please ? I'll chase Avocet down myself in due course....

Will be going to Folly with or without the choices so could end up as pot luck on the day for them ?

I'd stick on the spreadsheet so everyone can check ..but I can't upload .xlsx files...

Pete

I'll try again after server issues earlier.

I've been on to the Folly again today and they have OK'd the latest numbers of 45 to eat and 48 (ish)attending .

I have tried to contact Follymoorings about the fact about 20 boats may pitch up mid December when they have buuger all going on so can they do us a deal ? I wait to hear...............

All bar one menu choice now received - sorry for chasing but is now sorted, and Folly have said they can accomodate a small number of unplanned requests on the day so Paul H , etc can still be looked after .

I've not raised it with the folly yet but to show good form I was thinking maybe if people called to pay a deposit it would stand 'us' in good stead this year and for future years? I welcome thoughts on this idea as I've not raised it with the Folly yet so please dont call them and confuse them before I manage to speak to them. I'd add they (Alex) has been great in sorting things for me/us.

Final choices attached - again if it correct -say nothing. If its wrong PM me

If everyone could update thier profle with a boat name it may help radio traffic on the day ? I'll leave individuals to sort who they meet with & where etc But seems to be five (ish)biggish boats from Poole,couple of mid (6m) from Southampton/ calshot etc , couple of Island based boats etc

Fingers crossed for a great day (todays weather looked great across Poole Harbour when I was down there)

As always questions/comments/ abuse/ jokes etc etc all welcome.

Key points;

Meet at South Bramble at work ?

Thought on paying deposit to Folly ? Maybe pay the 'odd' amounts leaving just 10 per person to pay on day - makes the sums round the table much much simpler ? Again I've not raised this with them before seeing what the feeling is. Even if some did it I think the Folly would be calmer.

Good idea re. paying a deposit and poss paying the 'odd' amount, I'm all for an easy life

See everyone on the day; whisper sorry I missed your earlier post, it'd be great to rendezvous near Calshot and then meet up with the others somewhere suitable for going round in circles

Paul H - no problems should be fine on the day to choose as its only 4 in 45.

Menu is with the Folly , nothing heard back yet - but I will chase later to ensure its all OK

No reply form Folly Moorings yet . If anyone is near there and they can have a word to ask if they have my email it may help .

Pete

Folly have confirmed Menu receipt

Still no word back from Folly Moorings ... If anyone is up that way could I ask you to have word and see what the response is to the suggestion of a 'deal' ?

I'm in with +4 or 5 as a late entry just to be really difficult.

Andre has kindly offered me the Parker demonstrator for the day so we'll be leaving from Southampton Dry Stack. With a bit of luck we'll get down there early enough to go for a blast before the 11.30 rendezvous.
