If anybody is able to collect a box at this gathering from Sinewave, and move it towards Leicester, or possibly Wootton Bassett, I would be very appreciative.

I looks like light rain and 4 to 5 Centigrade (positively tropical) on the day, good enough for an enjoyable ride on the motorcycle, I will be there. Only two things stop me, absolute downpour (and that's only at the start, it's OK getting soggy on the way home) and lack of traction (freezing). Looking forward to lunch as well, never had Sea Bass Florentine before.

I will make a badge showing who I am too.

Sorry, getting confused, I have Anthony not coming, and Sinewave (Anthony) coming, so I should be able to act a courier to RWB.

Parking for VRATs Thurs:
First 2 cars park outside my double garage.
Rest park in neighbour's house (just past mine).
If that fills up, please park in "Kenwolde Manor", back up drive to main road and just opposite.
There should be lots of signs if my printer works OK!

By the way, there are builders doing a new wall down one side of the drive, opposite my house. Proceed with caution!

See you all tomorrow

If anyone needs a ride then feel free to drop me a PM. My route will likely be Didcot (start), Wallingford, Henley, join M4 at J8/9, leave M4 at J6, Windsor, Old Windsor, Jeremy's. I'll be leaving somewhere around 09:30 - 10:00 to get there around 11:00.

Cheers,

GJ

That was fun, lots of anecdotes, tea an biscuits and I did enjoy the Sea Bass Florentine. Faces and names to some UKVR personnel too. The weather turned out very nice indeed, sunny and not a drop of rain.

Many thanks Pamphonica for your time, tea (coffee), biscuits and the tour of your collection and workshop.

Indeed a very enjoyable day. Always nice to meet people I've never met before and meet up with others again.

Thank you Jeremy for an excellent day, it was great to meet so many like minded people with such interesting and stimulating conversation. Also inspired once again by your collection and the professional way it is presented.
Great cake too.

Thanks.

Box duly dropped off today and in storage to take to RWB. Sinewave will give me details of the intended recipient.

Great to see everyone today and have a chance for more relaxed conversation than at table sales, auctions etc. An opportunity to show off the new little Pamphonic equipment display. And a chance to put faces to some new names.
Apart from demolishing a lot of bicuits (expected) and approximately 1.6 fruit cakes (impressive),courtesy of Mrs Pamphonica, you lot were pretty well behaved!
Excellent to have such a jolly crowd here. Looking forward to the next one wherever that takes place.

Hi Jeremy, thanks to you and Mrs Pamphonica for your hospitality for our gathering.
Your display of Pam equipment is coming on and also your display of AVO meters is impressive.
Thanks also to Trevor for taking on the long drive around the M25.
