I can confirm I will be there, not sure whether Friday night or Saturday morning. Also not sure in what, maybe new toy or in van for sleeping purposes.

Please all wear name badges as there is no way I'll remember who is who after all these years.

Tom, you'll be fine mate. :D

I have a couple of bits of Capri memorabilia. I'll bring them with me.
6' x 4' Ford Flag, two coal models and a pewter 2.8i.

Hopefully that will make up for me arriving in a BMW Z4. Not sure which one yet, currently got four :xd:

I have a bit of a problem!

The dates clash with my mothers birthday and my stepfather has (seemingly unbeknown to anyone!) arranged a surprise family gathering in Northumberland (good job we hadn’t booked a holiday abroad!).

Let me know if you’re out of pocket as a result of my late withdrawal and I’ll sort something out (I can’t remember the booking arrangements). Apologies all, we were rather looking forward to it!

Mother's birthday! That's up there with 'the dog are my homework' :lol:

*mutter mutter, discuss, crinkling papers etc*

I suppose the Camp Council can allow him this one year off, considering his exemplary attendance record so far. We'll have to get somebody to cover his shift though. And we'll need another pry bar.

Has anyone heard from Nige?
Need to tell him how much my Tesla shares have fallen after he told me to "put all the money you can afford to into Tesla shares"
