Remi - I have sent you the details again

Everyone - the venue is the Boat Inn in Chepstow - I missed that off the invite rather stupidly!

something to do with the effects of cold and pressure on the brain

Angels rocking this weekend are Jason, John, Trev, Gordon and me - all safety diving.
Lars has temporarily left the dark side to freedive but will no doubt regroup at party time.
See you all there boys and girls.

Hi Guy, why not camping indeed :)
I have not booked any B and B yet, and was planning to drive home after the party, camping could be a better idea.
But I still don't have a tent (I should buy one this summer) do you have a spare one? or a large one?

Hi Remi.

Have got a spare tent and sleeping bag if you need it. I was also thinking about driving home after but will probably be pretty tired I reckon.

Hmm... I wouldn't want to do it if we were going to sit around all night freezing, but going out for a meal before hopping into a toasty sleeping bag in a peaceful Welsh field can't be all bad.

Don't want to sound boring, but if you are wanting a cab from Barbara's, make sure you book it several hours / days in advance. Last year we were next door at Rosie's, and we phoned the cab firm at 6pm - they didn't have any cabs until after 9 that evening.

We managed to pick one up on the way home, though, after we'd left Jimmy Dean's.

It does not look too bad, what do you think Guy?
A bit of rain during the night, but not really cold

I have got a sleeping bag, thanks, I would be happy if I could just borrow a tent :)
