Re: January's Virtual Winter Event 2021 (Covid lockdown edition) Jan 9th and 10th

I've even pre-paid the "design fee" for us! As JC says, a bit nearer Crimbo I can email the design PDF to anyone who fancies one, but no sneak previews until then, sorry :wink: .

PS. If any new recruits would like to get a flavour of how Winter Events have unfolded in the past, you could do worse than have a quick squint at last year's Dam Busters: viewtopic.php?f=7&t=16062

Re: January's Virtual Winter Event 2021 (Covid lockdown edition) Jan 9th and 10th

Just had a nice little chit-chat with our John, and we thought it was worth recapping the time line, apologies if it's all blindingly obvious already: Sunday 13th Dec: JC & Reg get drunk and do the draw for who pairs with whom and post the list up on here for your perusal. w/c 13th Dec: pairs contac...

Who indeed? Well Reg for a start. One February I very nearly missed it. Forgot only 28 days. On last morning suddenly realised, slapped all the gear on the bike, and screamed round to the station. Consulted my ladyfriend Eileen in the office - suggest somewhere I can get to fast please. She chose Ma...

Hmm. About to be in T2 despite being in an area with one of lowest infection/population ratios. No overnight stays 'unless for work'? Work you say?

That'd be lovely thanks Stu :smile: . In the meantime I'll think up some fiendish anti-squirrel defences so I don't waste them. I reckon some little "derw" labels will baffle her.

Re: Yay, it's cheery Friday.

Right it's Friday tomorrow, so I'll get my pissed-offness out of the way now in an attempt to start cheerily tomorrow. No it's not about tiers at bedtime. Don't even want to go there. No, I went down the garden for something or other - check on the fairies probably - and thought I'd inspect my ten p...
