I can't believe it's only a week away and we don't have a thread on whose going, whose doing what, where and at what time..

I shall be up Sat morning as usual and will be bothering the new single hander stands as well as the usual suspects..

I shall go and test myself on the 505 stand to see if I know what anymore of the ropes do than I did last year, then ditto on the Merlin stand since I shall probably be accompanied by at least one of the Bandito's, I'll go for a quick 'be ignored' on the IC stand, sign up for my class membership on the Alto stand, then see if I can visit the RS and Suntouched stands without committing myself to huge expense, that's going to be tough.

I'll be there both days, spending lots of time on the Lightning stand. Sat I'll be there with rupertson, Sun with the whole family.

Pop on by the Lightning 368 stand and say hi!

Elaine and I will be there on the Sunday manning the British moth stand.

Grf, pop along and say hi. You're ok, no wood or aluminium on display, only frp and carbon Smile
Though there may be some wood botherers manning the stand on Saturday LOL.

I shall visit both the British Moth and the Lightning stand, in my quest for total lake domination, without having to resort to a Miracle..

I shall get a Ronseal or Cuprinol spray tan just in case I get near enough to be infected by a wood botherer..

I have the perfect British Moth project for you GRF. Its 80 years old and made of "solid" planks of wood, not plywood, and the wood has shrunk so much there are quarter inch gaps between the planks. At the moment its slightly less sea worthy than a brick, but given a year or so of dedicated wood bothering I expect it could be restored... Its sitting in my lock up garage in the hopes that someone wants to take it on before I need the space...

Sounds like nothing a good can of paraffin couldn't solve permanently Jim, happy to oblige, would you like it dealt with on site?

I'll be there Saturday morning/lunchtime- reasonably keen to speak to any actual builders/people wit composites knowledge. If I'm not out hunting them, i'll be on the b14 stand, so do come by.
