Right then, Lyndon and I went to chat with the "Gaffer" at the Ashes last night. All systems go. Saturday evening meal, the kitchen usually closes at 8 on Saturday but they will keep it open until we're fed but we need to give him rough numbers and an estimated time to dine.
The Field is booked for the camping and caravanning, there are no electric hook ups as they're not fitted as standard to Football pitches Nice flat site with plenty of room.
Sunday Brekkie, there's a brick built outside kitchen next to the nano-meet work area where the Gaffer said they would do breakfast sandwiches etc and burgers and the like for lunch (not free I'm afraid ) or they do a very nice Sunday Carvery in the Pub.
Think that's everything covered for now.
Looking forward to a good meet.
Regards
Mick.

Planning is an unnatural process, much better to just get on with things, that way failure comes as a complete surprise instead of being preceeded by a period of worry and doubt

I think Lyndon and Mick need a vote of thanks for going to the pub on our behalf. It's a thankless job but somebody has to do it :D

But seriously, cheers chaps for sorting all this out for us :D

With the potential number of cars attending, catering for ourselves would have involved a rather large investment in food etc. and also quite an onerous task for the chef-in-chief so the pub kitchen is, in my view, a perfect idea :)

I did volunteer to change 3 of them 'over there', so I suppose I should. Do the same for the others here. I don't mind shredding my forearms again really.
;) Would be good if someone with nimble fingers could give a hand if necessary, I don't have a lot of feeling in my fingers.
I don't like signatures, they take up too much screen space.

Don't mind helping Bernard. Just talk me through whatever I'm doing and I'll do it.

I really didn't have the cheek to ask. Thanks to Paul for shouting out. I'm happy to get stuck in, just haven't a clue with coils pack and all this modern stuff. My skin is a bit papery due to being on steroids so have to be a bit careful in the shredding dept.

So don't forget to bring your new plugs with you Mick :D

I'd be happy to help as well but I suspect I'm going to be up to my ears in electrical wiring on the day ;)

I know about steroids, Mrs L has been on a high dose for a year now. Quite horrendous if she even gets as much as a scratch as she is on anti-coagulants also.

Don't envy her that. They got my INR wrong and I ended up with blood escaping from every orifice. Even my eyes were bleeding :(

Luckily surgery solved the problem which required me to use anticoagulant and I don't need the vile stuff anymore.

So long as I'm there' I'm willing to be involved too. Have done it on my own car. Hardest part was getting the rear coil packs off, had to resort to a bit of rope around them!

I am truly overwhelmed by the offers to do the plugs on my motor, knowing what a mean and nasty little job it is I felt really bad about asking, and if all it's going to cost me is few bowls of salad and some wholesome brown bread then I will be very happy to supply same. :nurse:

Thanks a million gents, as that is what you truly are "gents". :)
