Dereham 2009

Postby More_Cats_Than_Sense » Wed Jan 21, 2009 7:48 pm

We have 20 foot of space allocated :D :D

If you could get your forms filled out, I'll collect them at our next meeting :D

That could be an issue as I think I've either lost mine or managed to leave it at the meeting. I'm planning on building the baseboard for the pizza style layout in the next week or so, so I should easily be able to work out how much space I need by the next meeting.

Any idea what shape table we'll be getting this time or is that undecided? I just hope we're not in the middle again with the punters walking behind us. :roll:

I have a spare form so it's not a problem Nick. As to the space, we'll be in the same hall as before but not as last year with the public all around us, I think we could probably have either a straight or an L shape.

If we Gneed more than 20', I'm sure we could be accomodated :wink:

Well I reckon I'll only be taking up 3' 6" to 4', that should give me space for my simplicity style layout and the oval I'm planning to build.

Yes well we were a crowd confuser so I'm sure that we could be accommodated if we need more space.

For your delectation (or otherwise) our illustrious Master of Ceremonies at the Basildon MRC has agreed to the appearance of Secciole Salina at the 2009 event. If you don't Gnock it too hard you'll possibly get Gneiss Farm in 2010. Might even be Gneiss Squared by then.:wink:

Unfortunately the fonts available with Gnatterbox don't allow the correct mathematical presentation of the last bit.
So little time, so many ideas!!!!! GerryB.

Thanks guys (now where have I heard that before :roll: ); last night the whole of the Fiddle Area that caused us so much aggro at Swanley was rewired with micro switches on each of the 5 points. Gnow works a treat. :D
We'll find out what the Gremlins have in store for us in March when we visit Shepshed.
Unfortunately we can't help out the Councils running out of Salt as the Sun isn't powerful enough to evaporate our sea water. :twisted: :lol: :lol: :lol:

If people want to write down their layout's name and a brief description then I will print and laminate them for Dereham.
pm me if so.

Houston, we have a problem......


Err, well, we DID have a problem (that we didn't know about), but fortunately due to an timely visit, we no longer have a problem :roll:

Nick, Jon, and myself, by now, will have received by post the paperwork for Dereham, Ralph will notice now that he hadn't received any such paperwork.............

OOPS!

A certain layout was missed off of the floor plan................. :oops: :oops: :oops:

All sorted now though, we'll just have to see how it all pans out on the day, shouldn't be a problem though :D

BTW, I've ordered the bacon rolls for all of us :D :D :D

Control panel now ready for testing :D

I think I should be finished on time. Although in order to do so the building will be lacking stuff like it's drainpipes. :roll:
