Hi, we have recently joined the forum and interested in attending the 1 August 2015 meet at Sailhouse.
We would love to stay the night.
Can we pay on the day or do we need to pay in advance.
Our New Boat is Called Idle Hour.

Hi, 

You should be able to pay on the day.  I think all pre-payments have been made.  Just let the wardens know you are with the Freeman group.

As an aside, if the wind does not drop, I won't make it, and have already paid.  If Liberty is not there on Saturday morning, feel free to use my paid mooring!!!

Hi Kev and Debbie,  my boat (Pierro Gianni), is moored about 50m from yours - stern on the left  as you drive down the track  Last weekend, we dropped a couple of flyers off into your cockpit with details of the meet and the forum.  We saw you about a few times last weekend.
Pleased you have joined the group and hope to have opportunity to say hello at some point in the future.
Prof Past Pending will be helming my boat for the weekend of the meet.
Enjoy the forum, enjoy the meet and most of all, enjoy the Freemen.
Please lookout for a PM I am about to send you....

Very Happy Personally I can't see why Dave and Marie can't just hop on a shuttle and pop over for the Broads meet on the 1st, plenty of time to get the training in, and they could be back in Houston for Monday work kick around Twisted Evil

It would likely be quicker to take the shuttle from here to Salhouse than it would be to drive to the Space Centre on the other side of town.  The traffic is horrendous - Norfolk, it ain't!!
Notwithstanding that, the locals are friendly (well the ones I deal with are anyways, not talking about the ones who commit the 5 or so murders everyday).  The bureaucracy is awful, hopefully things will improve when I get a bank account and social security number.  Meeting with the nice people from the Bank of America this morning

A week to go to the Salhouse Meet...........and to stop raining  Crying or Very sad
Deanos on his epic voyage to get there, so please make the effort.
If anybody needs the use of the wheelbarrows that are at the carpark end, let me know in the next couple of days and I will get the padlock code when I ring Salhouse office Tuesday to confirm some points. (Note, if you need a Barrow to move something from your car to the Broad, it must be returned immediately as they are in constant use by the campers)
Dave's boat Piero Gianni will be skippered by Prof Pat, so he will there in spirit if not body  What a Face

Hope the weather improves for y'all (oops, slipped into yankish there).  Its anywhere between 100-110F here, blue skies, fluffy white clouds Cool .  Should I start a thread for a meet in Galveston for next year - Deano would probably be the only attendee, unless TonyT offers a special to bring boats here Very Happy
PG is out on the water as we speak, my daughter and her boyfriend have her for the weekend, apparently pouring down with rain, but they wanted to leave the mooring in Woods and get off down the river so he can fish early in the morning, brave souls indeed. ** Stop press "which ropes do we use to moor up" just came through on the mobile phone - have I done the right thing I wonder Rolling Eyes .

As this event draws near, I thought I'd just sound out logistics, Will most boats going there have BBQ's of some sort, I'm happy to bring one, but seems pointless if there will already be 12 on site, likewise,  easy light briquettes, tables, spare chairs etc etc, not sure how many of us Thames types are coming over, (assuming Visas granted)definitely 3 of us from Stravaigin, Chris, Ian, Mick, but all making our own way there, possibly meeting up with TonyTB and blagging a lift from whichever slip he launches at.   Thoughts please, looking forward to it, especially meeting Deano, who's efforts I feel should be rewarded with at least 1 pint of Rebellion Mutiny (as served at the bounty)

Chairs for us two only sorry, I think Jim and Katherine .will bring their own chairs, we are taking them via Gorse meadow as not v mobile, am speaking to them later this week.
Anybody by car need the wheelbarrow ? I can get the lock code when I speak to Salhouse office Tuesday.

Looking forward to meeting you again Derek - 12.30 at car park, because of my 'instability' the boat has to stay at Brundall.

Long range forecast suggests showers on the Saturday, and we know the met office ALWAYS get it right, is anyone co-ordinating or will we all just do our own BBQ thing, suspect that might be best as probably a bit like herding cats, I'll work on food for 4, beer for 12 Very Happy, have camping pitch booked, I see Tony will not be getting there on Freya but good ol Mabel will be there.

Haha,  they said other Freemans waved and hooted, they didn't take a note of the boat names or know which models.  They also had a visit from Kev and Debs on F26 "Idle Hour", a neighbour from Herbert Woods who knows we are overseas.  Thanks for that Kev and please do keep up the excellent neighbourhood watch scheme, I appreciate it.
Really jealous of you folk back home, but good to read about the daily exploits of the Freemaners.  Looking forward to pictures and reports of the Salhouse meet.

Update, Mabel has a problem too, so I don't think we'll be seeing Tony, unless he comes boatless, shame,  I'm aiming to leave Bourne End, crack of dawn and get over there early, before all the trolleys get blagged, may actually just chuck a wheelbarrow in the back so not dependent. Ill put my tent up and have a look round the area.  What time are people likely to start turning up? I'm planning on chucking a load of stuff in the car that "might" come in useful and leave in the car if not needed,
