To quote Tom Cruise (sort of) - I feel the need, the need for a visit to a canal! <_<

Whats happening over the weekend? I lost track of what was on, what was cancelled, and what might not happen due to low water levels!

:cheers:

If my opinion was correct, true and valid. We would all share the same opinion. Then it wouldn't be an opinion.

Is the Historic Boat gathering a private event? I hadn't realised there was one, I thought about going but seem to be struggling to find any details, except that it is at Droitwich?

Unless I am looking in all the wrong places !!

REALITY IS AN ILLUSION CAUSED BY LACK OF ALCOHOL.
IT IS NOT POSSIBLE TO CC ON ONE CANAL.

It's a gathering of like minded boat owners. It is not a 'public' event in as there will be no stalls, beer tent, entertainments etc but you will get to see many lovingly restored historic boats.

Many thanks, just what I wanted. I have never been to Droitwich but assume even I can't miss a large collection of boats together on a canal!

It was someone who's always picking arguments and talking rubbish, as opposed to the Dog House, who sometimes pick arguments but more often than not has the redeeming feature of being right!
