Weather forecast is pretty dire at the moment. :(
Hope there is some change before the day.

Yes. It looks dry but bone chillingly cold.

The forecast i have looked at is for some light snow possible up to Saturday but Sunday has Sun and Cloud

For anyone who hasnt been to the meet before, a few pictures below to help you find the venue once you are in Long Lane, and a reminder of the postcode which is WS6 6AT

You can access Long Lane from either the A34 or the B4210

From the A34:

From the B4210:

At the moment please beware of a mother of potholes which is located a few yards over the bridge on the left hand side and a couple of feet from the kerb, it is visible in the picture 2 above. It has been reported but who knows when it will be fixed. You will not be able to veer over to the right as you approach the crown of the bridge in case something is coming the other way but if you approach slowly you will be able to see if anyone is coming the other way and will have the time to veer over and avoid the pothole if nothing is coming. The picture below doesnt do it justice, its deeper at the back of the hole than the front

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

Catering for Sunday:

Breakfast - approx 10.30

Sausage Baps cooked and prepared by swmbo at home which I will collect and bring over to the venue

Lunch - approx 12.30

Burgers/Cheeseburgers cooked at the venue on the BBQ

All day availability - tea/coffee/biscuits , just help yourselves from the urn, cups and milk will be provided

The honesty box will be there for contributions to the food and BBQ fuel and when I have bought the supplies at the weekend I will have a better idea of how much it will be per person but approx £4/£5 and for that you will get all of the above

Well, I finally sourced a DMC M22520/1-01 crimping tool, complete with the correct turret :)

£600 to buy retail price, mine cost £35. WHAT a bargain. That completes my collection of appropriate crimping tools for use at nano-meets and I now no longer have to rely on borrowing from work.

I know, I know, boring... but I'm chuffed :)

Remember to remove the magnet before you set off and have a safe journey Jürgen, see you on Saturday night.

Do you know where the meal location is now or do you want to meet somewhere near and follow me ?

I was driving past there last week and there's lots of trees with lights in which you cant miss and looks very Christmassy, so find the lights and you are there !
