    That may prove useful in the future even if not for next weekend.
    Thanks Dave.

    At all of our previous events we have asked for £10 per person for the event (although we have waived that fee for those travelling from foreign climes). It was my intention to do the same this year. However with the possibility of a slight reduction in U.K. numbers this year it may be that we need to ask a little more (and by a little, I mean £2 or £3 extra). There are still a number of people who might be attending in addition to those I have had responses from, which might offset some of this. What with the uncertainty of actually having any sort of event at all we have not managed to hold the usual raffles and prize draws which have helped raise funds to offset some of the cost. I hope everyone understands...

    Thank you
    Outrageous! Looks like Mrs G will be walking the streets on Saturday then

    I always enjoy your company at our Event.
    See you all next year one way or another I hope.
    Well done on the F1 result yesterday.

    Rob.
    We enjoyed the convention each year, nice games and good company.
    Next year it will all be different and the nice games and good company will be enjoyed again. Looking forward to Doncaster 2022.
    First Dutch win at Zandvoort ever, nice

    Hi Lex,
    Strange to say the very last time I went to an F1 race, I was taken by my Dutch cousin to Zandvoort. It transpired that it was the last race there until this year which we did not know at the time. Hope to see you all again soon. Your lad looks as if he is destined for greatness, if he don't get asphyxiated by all the orange smoke first!

    Has anyone got contact details for Andy (Hawkhurst) and Marian (Deadly M), wondered how Marian was and whether or not they can make it this year?

    Just a heads up for those staying the Friday night, might be a good idea to book a table if you are wanting to eat at The Cheswold, however there are a few more options than in 2019, including a TGI Fridays, a Brazilian Steak House (Estabulo),(not cheap but all you can eat with 15 types of meat on offer... I managed to get through most of them last week), a Tapas place, Nando’s, Frankie & Benny’s and an Urban Fresh Burger (also Taco Bell and a Dunkin Donuts). Table(s) booked from 7:30 on the Saturday night.

    Already booked Haven't had a Brazilian for a long time (fnah, fnah).

    Edit: S'pose I should have asked if anyone else wants to try it and booked a bigger table....

    Have a great weekend, the plan is now to join you all on Sunday morning hopefully before the Ace of Aces kicks off. Sean and I are aiming to be there by 09.30 latest.

    Do you want us all to take a Lateral Flow Covid test before attending?

    NOT REQUIRED DAVID... I assume the vast majority of us are double jabbed. Its certainly not a requirement of the venue.
