can you get one via e-mail??not having a home adress does have it's drawbacks and would love to get a decent bankside BBQ mooring so I can see the NBT team fall in again.

Try the festival director david.montague@btinternet.com

Or try Chris B on here - he will probably be along soon :)

Lise and I are now the custodians of an 1895 Bantock boat "Coronation", this will revert to her original name all in good time

Lots of jobs to do, but we are happy to be back on the Cut with good friends

Sadly,

What makes anyone think they will now actually necessarily be able to get to Ricky, (or Wendover/Boxmoor) events with the impending closure of Tring summit for an unknown period. (Other than by the River, of course).

There is a possibility these events may suffer badly in boat numbers if BW decide they haven't got the water to reopen it for those months.

We are at Audlem for the Festival of Transport this weekend, (Sat 26th to Sun 27th July).

But all being well and assuming Ive screwed the engine back togther well enough and exchanged the broken stud,,, All being well we will be there by the bridge to show you how it's done or not - check the you tube vids ,, search for ricky etc Lincoln is in the thick it - winning but not as you would know it!!

We will be there to particpate and enjoy the
atmosphere with our chums,,,, and hopefully get some to ride and ballast the boat & we can do the same for them,

France was sign written on on side today Chris - other side on Thursday. It's looking good.
Don't think the fuel pump will be ready for Tycho though, so you may have to remove her the tug of war :( I'll still bring her down but with a tow from Victoria.

Would have loved to have been there, but no way could we organise getting "Sickle" back from Brum in time, following her other commitments.

Can't even be there without boat, I'm afraid - more "Sickle" moving has to be done this weekend.

Next year, maybe!

The sad thing is that the boats around it are OK ...
still best to not let it worry me , there are other issues to sort out
If anybody can spare some time on Sat or Sun to man the boaters information tent it would really help out
AND if you are on site Friday/Sat I may need a hand boat juggling

I'll be there with Tycho and Victoria Friday early-mid afternoon. Plan is to bring the other two down early on Saturday morning. I'll help if I can.
