Unfortunately due to the event coinciding with Father's Day affecting attendance I've had to cancel the event.

Now booked for Sunday 18th June 2017 - same venue - between 12.00 and 5pm. Cost is the usual £10 and as always all the proceeds from the event go to the venue, an under-funded Youth Centre, the funding they receive from HCC doesn't even cover the annual Gas bill.

Details will be added as the event develops. Hoping that we'll be having another seminar/gear test by Lozz, waiting to hear from Nick Smith to see if he's able to deliver another seminar, but a raffle will be on and we already have some fine prizes including a defretted Spector 4 string and a Beatle Violin Bass.

For now please copy and paste the attendance list if you're planning on attending.

Need to check the family calendar tonight, but unless there's something else I'm booked in for I wouldn't dream of being anywhere else! :)

We have to make £250 to make the event financially viable - if we don't make this we won't be able to put the event on next year.

So people know, we need a minimum of 20 people come through the door to justify putting on the event and cover costs. Every year we have positive feedback for the event I know that many people enjoy the day with us.

Unfortunately if there is insufficient interest and we can't cover our costs I'll have to cancel the event and donate the stuff that has been donated directly to the Club. They may actually be better off as we've been given two bass guitars, a set of speakers amongst other items.

If you are coming please add your details to the list. If you know other bassists who may also be interested bring them along too.

We don't currently have enough people attending to make the event cost effective - if you are planning on coming or know of others who might be interested please update the list.

If we don't have sufficient numbers I will, regrettably, have to cancel the event and donate all the items donated directly to the club.

Currently there is not sufficient interest to put the event on.

Even though the previous Bashes have cost me and Chris (Bassface2k10) money, which we've been prepared to accept, this looks to be the most expensive yet - we'd have to foot the £125 booking fee bill before we open the doors. It doesn't look like we would recoup this to offset the cost as in the past.

We've had people pull out too, because it's Fathers Day.

My plan is to leave the thread open till middle of May, if there hasn't been an upsurge in interest we'll cancel and I'll donate everything I've collected to the club to auction, if that's what they want to do.

Shame really, as we generally get good feedback from people who have enjoyed themselves.
