Cheers Carl. I sent them an email query for availability.

Let me know when you're coming, Might be wise to book/enquire soon for a summer stay over here unless it's camping.

You will do Paul. I'll be at the registration and will be there til the end but not sure from when as I will need to get the float tin etc as am working as weighmaster at every weigh so all you need is to catch a fish or come see the boats land their fish at the evening weigh ins and shore anglers at the morning ones (generally). I might even wear my lure forum tee shirt...

I've sorted the brochure out to a more manageable size which also includes the entry form for anyone coming over to save time at the registration filling one out.

see http://www.gbass.co.uk/Festival.html. The download now comes in at 1.4MB, much better!! (Download free trial of Adobe full program and it's easy!!)

Won't be coming over this year. I'm still without a car after a couple of lovely Eastern European chaps decided to try and steal it, wrecking the steering column and transmission in the process!

I Forgot to tell the campsite I wasn't going over, they rang me yesterday and weren't too pleased about the short notice! :oops:

Gutted to be missing it, but there's always next year!

Well it all kicks off tomorrow evening.

We had the pre-fesitval meeting last night to work out weighing duty rota's (i.e. supporting me as I will be doing all the recording). It can get a bit nuts when the boats come in.

Weather isn't looking great but it's showing force 3's Saturday so I hope the boats will take part. I have a plan to go back to Mark X where I had the 5-11. A mate is heading there tonight to see if the fish are still there. You never know...
