Anyone goinmg this Sunday, the 17th?

Looks like we're going as a family again, probably so Mrs Nasher can keep an eye on what I'm spending

We were watching these balls on the IOM with great interest. They looked like a lot of fun. It was a funfair thingy and the lads in charge were timing the kids in the balls quite carefully.

I'm not sure if they were hauling them in before the money ran out or the oxygen ran out.

We waited for ten minutes while BruceB and I took bets on the blueish looking ones, but there were no casualties....



Still, good to know about the £5 mill insurance

You are quite safe in them for 20/25 mins we allow 5 mins at shows - 10 mins at private parties.

To be honest after 10 mins you are generally knackered!!

We are fully booked till end of October so very happy so far. That's all the summer hols, weekends and some are double booked so got extra help in.

Long may it continue :-)

Yep will be going bargain hunting. Will be bringing some friends ostensibly to moderate my spending - though in truth I expect us both to come away with some ridiculous expensive items that were on too good an offer to miss!

That's the section where second hand boats will be displayed, and yes, it is open from 9am - 10am for the rest of the show.

No they had them at a local "fun fair" last year. I did some sums in my head whilst waiting for me son to emerge and reckoned they had probably covered the cost of the kit in the first night! I assumed the time limit was about maximising revenue rather than minimising suffocation...

Surely they are the same thing?

I am not sure that suffocating customers would really help revenue!!

Cool pics, totally knackered this morning though LOL was none stop the whole day, had a queue from start to finish did just under 400 balls. Plus they've asked us back next year so will be there again.

Apart from our regular spot we will also be at Ribex and Sports Boat and Rib Show!!

Ribex we will be running into the night during the Ribfest Concert with Pool lights so should hopefully be busy.
