A friend of mine has two spare tickets for The Dead South this Saturday at Manchester Apollo.

Face value is £27.50 each plus fee but she'll take £20 per ticket. I can email you the pdf tickets.

Is there a reserve list or something I can join in case someone can’t make it?

Re: Pubs near Bear Bones Towers

Penrhos Arms is decent I was going to suggest the Penrhos could be an option or the Aleppo in Carno another. They're the two nearest. I think you'll find the Dyfi is nearest after the Wynnstay (from Llanbrynmair, turn left at the Cemmaes Road (Glantywymyn) roundabout, it's on the left before the po...

The Bear Bones winter events merch

Has anyone got a good memory regarding the Bear Bones merchandise from the past winter events? What have we produced over the years? Better still if you have a photo :-bd

I remember the hat, towel, bum bag and buff (did we do buffs twice)?

Cheers in advance

Whenever I rode with Mike, I reckon he'd probably put away around 3 times the amount of food I would per day. So how many fags...
