    Hmm, I wonder if that will have anything to do with my driving or not? :p :D

    Thanks Steve.

    Absolutely, that's what I'm doing. Hopefully pick up a few tips before our drive ... ;)

    Cheers

    My cheque also in he post. Brother is sending his direct to you. You should have them both tomorrow. And as for lurking, oh yes, if I am going to make a fool of myself (again) then I want to see how others do :D

    I'll be there mid-morning-ish with a bit of luck - in time for a laugh look at the AM people's drive :D

    Will be there mid-morning myself (as soon as I can get the wife out of bed as she likes a lie-in at the weekend). As for having a laugh, that's a sure thing too as well as generating a few as well.

    Wife has been warned that if she does better than I do she will have to walk home!

    Looks like I'm not going to be able to make this one after all :(

    At the moment I have to be onsite for a sheduled maintenance router rebuild on that date. I'm desperately trying to get out of it but as one of vry few peole who can actualy do the job it looks like I'm in trouble.

    The overtime will cover the cost - but basically wont make up for effectivley losing the overtime or missing a cracking day out :(

    Have PM'd Andrew accordingly

    Mark

    Pissed off !

    Sorry to hear that Mark :( Here's hoping you get out of it somehow.

    Thanks - it may come in handy if I have to pay for the tickets anyway :(

    It does look like there will be 2 spaces left over after all - but I'm still not sure about the implications as far as I'm concerened

    If I have to pay for these 2 then obviously they will be available to anyone here who wants them. If they are currently not paid for and I can get out - then there are 2 spaces available for those who want them and can sort it out nice and lively :)

    I've let Mark know that we can find other people for his places. It will mess up the groupings somewhat, but hopefully we can sort it out to everybody's satisfaction.

    I forgot to ask: can those going either PM me, or answer here with the names you want on the Certificates you receive confirming you have done a skid pan course?

    jimmy, got your PM, thanks. Scott, got your PM, will call later. Iced-out, not heard from you mate, can you contact me ASAP, confirming you've sent payment?

    I've contacted Sasha to see if he wants an extra space, but there is at least one space available. Anyone?

    Sasha's mate Matthew has taken a space, which means that there is still one available. I've shunted Sasha and Matthew into the PM group, so the one free space is for the AM group. *OPEN TO ANYBODY*

    Iced-out *please* contact me ASAP!! Getting a little concerned that I may have an extra two spaces to fill!!
