Suggestions for dates? Need to avoid major sports events like the British Grand Prix, Cricket and Wimbledon

I value everybody's opinion...especially when it's the same as mine

Lol. Father's Day was ideal for me... 'It's your day Daddy, you can do whatever you want'... Right, help me load the car, see you all later, call a curry for 7pm'. :)

As long as there are no family obligations I'll make every effort to attend any other date, these things are great!

I'll look at the possibility of re-scheduling for 25th June - no Tennis at Wimbledon, no Cricket as far as I can see, F1 is in Baku, Azerbaijan.

Let me know if this is better...

Looks clear on the calendar, obviously this is not quite the same as it actually being clear... will check with the master. If I can't make it you're welcome to my entry fee and the gas it would have cost.

Folk take along their basses and rigs for others to try out, and everyone has the opportunity to try out a sorts of gear that you won't find in the local mucic shops.

You also get to meet other BCers for a chat and put faces to names.

Thanks for the info - that sounds really good. I don't have much in the way of gear as i am just starting off taking it seriously but it would be cool to meet up with more experienced bassists for a chat and advice.

I'm devastated, Mick, but can't make it, I'm afraid.

Like NickD, though, would be very pleased if you accept my entry fee and diesel money anyway. FOLKS - if it is ANYTHING like last year's bash, it is such a well run and hugely rewarding experience.....

The new date is my daughter's birthday, so unfortunately I'm going to have to give the bash a miss this year.

Maybe we could persuade them to celebrate their birthdays at the bash.

Unfortunately it looks like there are insufficient numbers to justify putting on this years event - I had overlooked the initial date coinciding with Fathers Day which clearly affected the number of those who were able to attend.

I have, reluctantly, been to the venue today and cancelled this years Bash.

At the same time I donated the de-fretted Spector donated by Spectoremg and the Hohner Beatle Bass donated by Thunderbird to the Club for their rehearsal room/studio. At least these have found a good home.

I'm sorry if this disappoints those who have attended in the past and were looking forward to attending another. From mine and Chris' point of view we have missed this opportunity to raise much needed funds for what was our local youth club when we were growing up.

I must thanks those who had agreed to provide support in the form of photographers, seminar facilitators, canteen staff, etc and hope that we can rely on your support if we put on similar events in the future.

Mick.

What a shame, after all your efforts.

All the best to Chris and you Mick.

Let's look forward to a bigger and even better bash next year.

That's a real shame Mick. Really enjoyed last years bash but unfortunately couldn't make it for this year.

Sorry to hear this Mick, I was going to struggle with dates like many others.

Can you post details of the club so I can donate my attendance money to them - they provide a great service and deserve support.

Hope the next one isn't cursed with diary clashes.
