Cannot wait to see you all! :D :bounce: :D

Colin, I'm so sad that you aren't able to make it. :( Is there anywhere else you could meet us while we're in the area, or at the con?

Oh, and any dietary restrictions? We can arrange vegetarian or gluten-free but unburnt is not guaranteed.

A further message from the office of the Seneschal to Lady Harkin. His Excellency StJohn Cholmondeley Featherstonehaigh Magdalene-Caius.

' I have been advised by Lady Harkin, that the Evening Concert on Wednesday 6th August in aid of the Overstressed, Overdressed and Over Here Tour, will commence with the traditional Lighting of the Barbie at 1700 hours(5pm of the clock) with named meats being served from 18.30 hours(6.30pm of the clock) until approx. 19.30 hours(7.30pm of the clock). All members*, plus 1's and other guests should assemble at Castle Harkin from the aforesaid 1700 hours(5pm of the clock). All guests are asked to dress, as the neighbours get upset when naked people cavort about the grounds. I understand that alcohol will be served but should anyone require a specific beverage, they are asked to 'bring a bottle'. There will be a quiz as traditional, which will be a contest between the might of Britain and the Colonial visitors. There may be questions about books. All weapons must be left at the guardhouse and may be collected upon leaving.

* may contain nuts*.'

Thankyou
....And forgiveness walks at my side!

After consultation with the management, and some alterations to my schedule for the date in question, it is now looking much more likely that we will be arriving in time for the ceremonial lighting of the Barbie. :bounce:

See you there :D

Many thanks to Pat and Jan for the hospitality last night. The weather held off and a very pleasant time was enjoyed by all. Commiserations to our American cousins for not winning the quiz but Chris's rendition of the American version of 'Where's my Cow?' was epic!! Hope everyone has a great convention.

Had a wonderful time, had to throw everything into the wash to get rid of the smell of woodsmoke :D Had a panic attack on the way home when I thought I'd left Bert the farting hippo, baby could have been starting school before I saw it again. Loverly food, thank you to Jan :thumbr: :D
