Oooooooooooo - a school night meet - not had one of these in a long time!!!!

 

Depends on what time I get home from work and if the missus is going out (someone needs to look after the nipper) and the W word, I may just pop along if all the above are favourable.

There is no reason why we can't do both nights, no need to postpone any adhoc meet.  Might get more people turning up at a weekend, weather permitting of course.

On another note......

 

I would just like to give a gentle reminder to all, multiple uses of the dark sites are for dark site members only.  It is not fair that the majority of people pay for the rent of the sites and some do not.  The rent goes up nearly every year but we have managed to keep the dark site membership cost static, if people won't pay for the membership then we may loose one if not both of the darksites, as we will not have the funds to pay the rent.

 

You have to admit, £20 a year is not bad.

 

Thank you.

Wish I could come and meet you all, stuck here frustrated with a street and neighbours lights.

 

Hope you all have a good night.

Well that's great got everything in the robs car to discover the heater blower thing in the car has broke. Windows all misty, we wiped them all down but still not good. Rob drove for and 2 miles and felt it to dangerous. It would of been worst on way back.

this is getting quite depressing.

Rob will try getting it fixed tomorrow so hopefully still might be able to go this week.

Is anybody still going?

 

I was going to turn up but minus my kit as I'm just leaving work now, so it would take too long to go home, pack the car then get there?

 

If no ones there I'm not being Billy no mates with no scope.

 

:P 

 

Might just do a back garden session tonight then and try for later in the week.

Nice one Phil.

 

I'll put a post up later in the week.

 

I've just remembered it's bonfire night so might be a tad smokey.
