I did, and i do, but i'm stuck in Europe until it freezes over (and i mean that quite literally) so i dont expect to be back before December :( No NEC for me.

Oh dear, dont suppose theres any chance of picking it up Vanny before hand? happy to pick it up myself as it would be a nice "touch"

Am I the only one that thought it was this weekend? It was only because of a chance text message to Mark, where I said "See you tomorrow" that I found out it was actually next weekend... :oops:

I think he said he's doing development testing on the Amalfi coast in Italy.

Tim - I think Eoin is arriving at 2pm, so I'm aiming to be there then so I can start plotting the layout before we have too many cars on stand. Mike S is aiming for 7pm I think, so anywhere between those two as five hours is enough time to stand in a freezing cold hall! It would be handy to have some idea of when other folk plan to arrive as if there's a big gap in the schedule, I might skive off for a brew.

I'll collect BXclub HQ Thursday morning and head off to Tim's. So if we aim to arrive en masse, the more the merrier. Anyone know if there's a decent jet wash near to the NEC?

I suspect arriving about 1430..... We may be hard pressed to get a cuppa on Thursday afternoon. I usually arrive come into the hall on foot with my bucket and fill with water and wash the car outside the door. We are very close to the door of Hall 7 and are not too hemmed in... No problems though as we will all have your mobile number - I sms(text) faster than most teenagers (in English, Italian and French but not in Welsh). Cake iced today and looks great!

Will see if Laura can find it, but she is on nights at the moment. It needs cleaning too, it's got a bit of light mold on it. Frankly I think it will take too much effort to sort out for this event. Oh, I dont know where the base is either

I had hoped to pop down on the Friday but I now have to go for Manual Handling training in Newport (Shropshire) so that has put paid to that plan. There is no chance of me getting there over the weekend either because of my brother's wedding. Hope it goes well and I look forward to the stories and the photos.
