Me too
You really need only two tools: WD-40 and duct tape. If it doesn't move and it should, use WD-40. If it moves and shouldn't, use the tape.

By the way, Steve (Boxered) and I have been chatting about the idea that he put forward last year of running two groups if the weekend gets well attended.

Basic idea is a tourist group for those who want to see the scenery and a quicker group for those who want to focus on the quicker tarmac :)

Hopefully that way the concerns some have of the event becoming over subscribed will be allayed and we can tempt them back :)

Oh and if anyone's up for it I'm happy to act as guide for a pub crawl on the Friday night of Llangollens hostelries :)

Steve

Due to advancing years, can I suggest an upside down pub crawl or "Australian" as we call them here in Shrewsbury.

Ie. have the curry/chinese/etc. first and then the beer, instead of a skinfull then the curry at 11.00 o'clock?
