Could we have a list of a few no-kitters? I see lawrie from the mystorm forum is interested. And Revaldinho could join as a no-kitter if a table space didn't open up.

I've got a couple of pasting tables I can bring.

At this stage, it would be easier for me if these people can add their names to the reserve list. As we get closer to the time, I will review the situation. My very unofficial position at the moment is that, unless we get silly numbers on the reserve list, I will be very reluctant to refuse anyone who wants to come.

Thanks. The more tables we have, the easier it will be to accommodate those on the reserve list.

Re: ABUG SOUTH 22 to 24 November 2019 (Hampshire) BOOKING THREAD

I'm possibly able to bring my own fold up picnic style aluminium table (the sort you take on camping holidays), assuming I can find it in one of our sheds.

However, and I will know more once I've seen the Doctor tomorrow, I noticed I had what I believe to be a hernia when I was in the shower on Wednesday morning, and even though I am still hoping to come, I may have to cut down the number of heavy boxes of goodies I bring along, or rope in some help carting stuff in and out of the venue.

I will post an update in the next few days.

It's more important that you bring yourself rather than any kit.

There will, of course, be plenty of willing volunteers to help you unload (and subsequently reload) at the venue. But that doesn't really help in terms of how you are going to load (and subsequently unload) at home.

That's not too bad of a problem. I'll get the wife to do it :lol: :lol: :lol:

I visited the Doctor on Monday morning and he said I 'should' be fine to be as normal as possible in my daily activities. He said that if I was concerned that lifting heavy items would make the hernia worse that I get some sort of belt (that's probably not the right word) which is similar to what power lifters wear, and have that on while performing the heavy lifting.

I have also been referred to a specialist to see about getting it repaired while at this early stage so as to not make it worse. I'm guessing the waiting list for this sort of thing will be pretty long, so I guess I will try to be careful without doing anything too risky to make it worse.

I then promptly drove from Hampshire to Sleaford (a supposedly 200 mile and 3 and a half hour journey) yesterday, slept overnight in the van, collected trestles and scaffold boards first thing this morning, and drove back to Hampshire for most of the rest of the day. Got home around 4pm or something. About 5 or 6 hours of driving yesterday and around the same or more today. Then I had to empty the van. Quite strenuous but not too physical for too long.

Things should be good for my attendance, but if anything changes I'll try to let you know as early as possible so you can offer the table to someone else on the reserve list.

If anyone thinks they will have difficulty lifting, there are always people who are willing and able to help load and unload kit.

Afternoon all,

Would like to attend for just half a day on either Saturday or Sunday afternoon.
Is that feasible?

Regards
Paul

I have put you down on the reserve list for the time being. However, as I previously indicated, unless the reserve list gets ridiculously long, I am hoping to squeeze everyone in. And, given that you are only intending to attend for half a day, I really can't see that being a problem.
