Well got ou of Olympic village through the tunnel I have been digging there there for the last 7 months, so now I an free. And as a first ever this year I am well ahead of the game.
Boats all checked and ready, caravan loaded and stocked (beans and beer) Tea Urn clean and shiney (thanks to new better half) large stock of Tea bags, coffee and cups  for Mayhem central control, radio gear seems to work, but what do I know. Waders checked for leaks, yes they do have some. Camping booked (I will be arriving Thursday and leaving Monday--see well ahead) Markers for the straight running all ready (not sure but rumor has it Stavros has a holigan straight runner....oh  :o !!)
So all in all ------ I'm ready , pity that some of our chums will miss it, but I'm sure we will have a little toast to them.
PS Do we know if a camping area has been marked out for us Mayhemers (as I'm probaly going to be the first there--followed closely by Stravros and Mrs Stavros)
BBQ Friday night---good idea----now where's the duck  {-)

I am sure there are members that will let you have a run of one of their models, I for one do not mind you running one of my models. As long as we both do not need the same transmitter

Come to Wicksteed this weekend,
  It's fun experience we all can recommend.
Lots friends, lots to do and lots to see,
  Bring a boat and you'll too, will agree.
Don't stay home in your big armchair,
  Cause Phill & Bill, Savros & Andy will all be there.
W begged and pleaded but sorry,  no entrance discount this year,
 Something about a recession is on or the end of the world is near.
Navy & Tugs & Yachts & Springers all on show,
  Old friends, new friends and the odd weirdo.
Sun, rain, wind and snow is all a guarantee.
  Well apart from getting in, Mayhem at Wicksteed is all always free!


... I'll get me coat.   :embarrassed:

:) Don't think I'd be able to control any of your boats! except maybe that rtr tug! lol

I'm holding out hope of having the duck fixed in time, but my Flower Class has a burned out motor (6v monoperm), so I'll have to order a new motor and mount. Will still be there, just maybe not with any of my own boats!

I suppose really I'd better start putting something back together to sail? Oh, and pack some gear...

If you're not up to controlling Scoop's Apache there Bikerdude, I could always bring my OPS 45 rigger? ;)
