Default 7th Basildon Bash 2018

We have been having a get together in Basildon every year since 2012, so I suppose we had better think about organising one this year.
I am proposing the 25 Nov 2018.
Please let me know if you can make it.

cheers
Mike

Hello Mike,

Iíll endeavour to get along this time, but with the passing of my Dad end of July and now with the passing of my Mum only two weeks ago I may struggle to do so because of family commitments etc.

Regards
Terry Bateman
Southend, Essex.

Count me in please! Happy to share/provide transport with anyone from the West side of London. GJ, I’m very happy to drive you onwards once you get to me as usual. Others wishing shared transport please just PM me.

Many thanks for the invite Mike!

There should be room for a couple more.
Who fancies a browse around the KB Museum... see and hear the wonderful 1930 KB 214 Transportable working!
Everyone is welcome.

Hi
Westcliff has replied on GVR and said he is coming, so we are getting near a full house.

I have a few items that I will be putting out which could be yours for a reasonable fee.
Or if you wish to bring a few items with you we can have a mini swapmeet.
Here is a list of what I have available. (its always amazing how they mount up, despite my strict rule, nothing but KB)
Click image for larger version

Name:	stuff for sale 2018.png
Views:	44
Size:	24.2 KB
ID:	172249
I will add some photos soon for those who can not make it to the get together.
If you can guarantee you can arrange collection with someone who is coming to the get together, or you can collect from me at the next Harpenden, then you are welcome to make an offer on an item.
Sorry, there will be no postage on any of these items.

Mike

Hello Mike,

I'd be interested in seeing the KB Museum and saying Hello to a few forum members.

Do you have space for one more?

Kind Regards,

Stuart.

Jeffrey, ( ppppenguin)
Trevor, (TNC)
Graeme, (GrimJosef)
Rich, (Sideband)
Dave, (Unrealdave)
Terry (Valvepower)
Jeremy (Pamphonica)
Gus (Westcliff)
Stuart (Stuart R)

I think we have had more on previous occasions but I reckon that 10 is just about a full house. (but if anyone has a KB radio for me, that I don't already have, I am sure we can squeeze you in)

Thanks guys, I look forward to seeing you all on the 25th Nov, any time from 10am should be fine.
If anyone wants my address please PM me.

cheers
Mike

Hi Mike,

I won't make this one- these days it's a 400 mile round trip!

Sounds like a full house of the usual suspects, I'll miss the craic!

Just to say thanks once more for Mike's and Mrs Mike's generous hospitality - it was a pleasure to catch up with old friends too, albeit briefly before I disappeared into Mike's workshop to help with someone else's project ! Thanks too to Jeremy (Pamphonica) for the lift there and back and a few other places in between .

Cheers,

GJ

Yes, thanks from me too for Mr & Mrs Mike's hospitality today.

Good to meet and chat with some like-minded people, plus excellent home-made hot sausage rolls for lunch.

Great to see Mike's KB Collection and meet the pets too, especially enjoyed seeing the Discomatic up and running.

Kind Regards,

Stuart.

Thanks for coming guys, it made an interesting day with lots of conversation. We had 2 who could not make it and sent their apologies, but there were 8 of us in the end excluding Gill and myself and the young lad and his dad upstairs with Graeme in my work room, trying to get the coil gun working and firing on all 3 coils.
Gill says thanks for the gifts you brought her. (and me yum yum)

Mike

Thanks from me as well. It's very kind of Crackle and Mrs Crackle to put up all of us. The sausage rolls were scrumptious and the rock cakes were divine!
thanks again
Jeremy
