Default Cottered Workshop.....The Poll!

Time has come for the good folk of UKVRR to decide when they next want to get a day out in the countryside.

Please vote for dates that you will be available.

I will close the voting by the end of next week at the latest

If there is enough interest for a two day event then it will have to be the weekend of 26/27th November.

Costs for a 1 day event will be 17.50 as before. A 2 day event will really depend on numbers - everything is being done at cost, to keep the prices down for everyone

I've voted - could not find my preferred option of
"turning up and not fixing anything"
So I went for the next best option

Seems that we have 8 people that would be happy to attend a workshop on the 27th November.

At that level of attendance covering costs will be tricky, but I am prepared to take a chance.

So, 27th November it is - I will book the hall today, if we have any others that want to attend then that will make life easier!

Cheers
Sean

Hi Lawrence,

In a nutshell, it's a gathering of forum members in a village hall helping each other to fix radios, televisions and other stuff.

Its a good day out, and we usually have a good time .

Sean
