If you're newbies like us...

Louise & Rich have some brill lists on their Blue Ice website about equipment etc. http://www.blue-ice.me.uk ...(some nice Solent shots too).

So far, with at least 3 Advanced PB Instructors & the Forum 'Paramedic' as well as some experienced Skips, electrical/ engineering/plumbing folk, some excellent crew and a student (hide the drink!!!) we should all be able to look after each other!!!

Anyone got news on weather yet?

Lovely piccies and you're showing off with your oval 'mounts'! Thanks for the mention of the website. It's gonna get an update (well, a few things added) in the next few days. Still haven't found anything green in my wardrobe - looks like I'll have to wrap a curtain round me or summat.
