Hi Harv

We'd prefer it if you used the form in the events tab at the top of the screen Smile 

Makes it a little easier to keep track of who's who, what boats we have to fit on the moorings and gives us contact details should we need them

Prof, Ken has sent me "your" database of Thames attendees to print off the name tags as before. At present having difficulties with printer (hopefully just the cartridges, ordered new but not arrived yet)  When/ if I get printer going Ken will probably be on boat by then.
When will you be going ? as may need to send you the file to print or the printed labels if I can get it working.
We probably won't arrive until later Saturday as driving down Saturday morning (bank holiday!) and also need to book in at P&P pub.
Did you get Sheridan's round robin email publicising the event ? May pick up some more visitors from that !
Derek

Hi Derek

We'll be on the boat on Friday morning, Sheridan is a good days cruise away, and if the locks are as busy as they were this week in that area we'll be late.

By all means send them to me either hard copy or electronically.

Hi Pat/Ken, would it be possible to stick us on one of the ends of the mooring so that we can have somewhere to peg out the dog so that he doesn't pester other folk? Really looking forward to next weekend.  Currently down at Hurley making our way back up stream. Rewind at Henley so expecting to make slow progress through there today. Weather improving.  All the best Sneddie.

Shouldn't be a problem Kevin Smile

We have plenty of space though, so you can pretty much peg him anywhere you like. 

Watchout for the crazy water taxis at Henly Captain

We may have to raft a few boats, we have some 32's and a 33 on the list that will take up a large section of the moorings.

Buy one, leave it in the bottle for a couple of years beyond the best before date and see what happens Twisted Evil

No convinced that's where the brewery is though as that street is residential iirc

For those arriving by car, RG8 OJL should put you at the end of Ferry Lane, South Stoke. Follow that lane to the river, we'll be on the left Smile

There will be some burgee style signs showing the way.

Hey guys and gals...unfortunately it looks like Blue Peter will not be making an appearance this afternoon/evening as planned. I have been called to work and will not be able to get away in time Sad. Gutted as I cleaned and sorted the boat in preparation for our trip, and the boys were well up for it.


What time will people be leaving tomorrow...?


Hope you all have fun Rolling Eyes

We had a fantastic weekend Very Happy


Started with an impromptu meet at a local pub.

This lasted a little longer than anticipated

So led to a night cruise to our moorings

Paid our respects to Sheridan on the way past

The moorings were fabulous, mown lawn, built in BBQ, water, elecy if we needed it, very private and secure 

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

A restaurant on the opposite bank...one or two tender runs over there, and a village pub in walking distance.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

Needless to say, we were keen to book it for next year, so that's done

And we departed on Monday morning
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

Anne got back as far as Abingdon and decided that was enough. I switched her off to wait for the lock and she refused to start again affraid 

Swapped the plugs for a new set and she purred into life....we all know to keep a spare set of plugs in the boat....right Question

Thanks to everyone who attended and made it a very enjoyable event.
Commiserations to those that couldn't make it in the end, you missed a cracker.

We have a few plans for next year already Wink

Whoops..... definitely a smart move to carry spares then!! The ignition coil wasn't too hot by any chance?  hammer

Probably my fault for having the buttons so small.....my worry was that if I made them larger all of us using touch screens would be clicking away unintentionally

Pat, is it possible in the grand scheme of all things " forum" to actually remove the - minus sign completely? (Leaving the + of course)
I would hope in our gentle world of Freeman there is no need to neg anyone Rolling Eyes

EDIT~I tell a lie, no more - Very Happy
