    Good idea Tim.

    You're still in the hospital, Rob?

    Hope you can recreate a bit. 24 degrees here and sunshine.

    Wish I could change the conditions. Sun for you and rain for me (and the rest of the republic).



    I really enjoyed the time we had in Prague.

    Hi Guys, still awaiting replies from 16 UK members who attended last year.

    Will the Dutch contingent make it across this year?
    See you on the Dark Side......

    This is not good news chaps.

    Due to a change in dates for our holiday this year from May/June to August/September, our 3 week trip to Canada will mean we do not get back into the UK until the 15th of September. I normally work Tue/Fri/Sat and to ask for more time off so soon after having the best part of 4 weeks off (ie Fridays and Saturdays), it would be very cheeky to ask for time off so soon after.

    So unfortunately I will not be attending Doncaster this year. Chris has taken over, as he did admirably last year, running the Ace of Aces game on Sunday. You may also have noticed that I did not put myself down to run any games either, for this very reason.

    I will keep up the admin work until August, when I will have to hand it over to someone else, I am hoping that like last year much is already in place and game slots fully organised and player slots booked.

    If the situation changes I will keep you informed.

    Neil

    Very sorry to hear your news Neil. It won't be the same without your ever cheerful presence at the tables, nor of your good lady in the evenings.

    This time it will be a combination with Leeds on Thursday and Doncaster Fri+Sat+Sun. The only thing is that we need to leace earlier then before: we are going to take off 17:25 from Leeds Bradford.
    But I am happy I can come this year. We will see what about next years, I will tell you there

    Strangely Brown and F.a.D. are otherwise engaged, long planned. Brambo is not too well and waiting a a yes/no rather than no commitment answer from CodEyes. There are still 11 others I am awaiting answers off.
