May I wish all of you the best of fun!

End it in style.

I can just imagine dozens of people helping by casting 'appropriate gestures' in the light of many freshly repaired sets. Accompanied by the sound of raspberries that would have done Milligan proud.

Hi Aidan.

I'm sure there will be plenty more in future years to come in Devon, and perhaps, now, even one more up here in Solihull. It'd be great if you could come to one perhaps next year.

Thanks Aidan.

Kind regards.

From Mike.

Hi Tone.

That's excellent. I'm surprised you're still talking to me though after my previous slanderous tale.

Thanks Tone. See you there.

Kind regards.

From Mike.

Hi David.

It may not actually be the last one up here now - who knows what can happen. But thank you for the kind send-off.

Kind regards.

From Mike.

Hi everyone.

As usual, feel free to turn up any time after about 08:00 in the morning. The day usually finishes at about 22:00 (give or take an hour) and the usual Drum-and-Monkey lunch is at roughly 13:30.

If people fancy bringing biscuits / cakes / snacks / drinks / pies or whatever for the usual during-the-day comestibles then that would be brilliant. (Bacon sandwiches will be freely available in the morning as usual and tea / coffee etc. will be available throughout the day.)

There will be test equipment and a few benches available as well as components and vales so if you're bringing something along to fix then you should be okay.

As this is a bit of a junk-swap then please feel free to bring any TV related or other electronic type junk along to swap with other people's junk.

And finally, could I please ask people to wear name-badges of some description - to save me being flummoxed at trying to remember people's names as much as anything else.

Thanks everyone and see you next Saturday.

Kind regards.

From Mike.

Sorry I can't make it as I'll be embarking on a long journey to another part of the UK to pick up something special which will be introduced to these pages on getting it home.

Will see you all at the NVCF on the Sunday though.

Cheers,
Brian

I will definitely try to get to some Devon ones. Perhaps tie it in with a weekend away as it's a nice part of the country to visit.

I am just wondering whether to just bring my smiling self up or bring one of two jobs which I have not got around to sorting. My 20" ITT/KB VC205 with its frame fault or my Philips Tvette which I have not even looked at.

All being well I will be making it up to Solihull on Sat. I will probably find a Premier or Travelodge to stay over and visit the Warwickshire meet the following day. J.

Hello Simon,
As they are both smallish why not bring them both down? I've done a Tvette before, they give a decent picture with a good tube.
Look forward to seeing you.

Cheers

I'll be there, Mike, but will be leaving about mid-day as we're off to IoW at silly-o'clock Sunday morning.

Dave, didn't realise you were going to this, do you want to bring the stuff I was going to collect at the NVCF with you? Saves me a job at the NVCF and gives me more car space!

Hi all.

I'll get the address PMd over to those who require it now, but could I remind everyone to please wear some kind of a name badge please.

Thanks all.

Kind regards.

From Mike.
