We should be there - the problem is, with holiday etc, I am unable yet to confirm for sure that we ALL will be. And it is unclear which elements of the event we can/will attend - though it is likely it will be a smorgasbord.

Suffice it to say, please expect at least a passing glimpse of....

Dick Cribb
Helen Beilby
Ken Owen
Pat Collet

Given the fact that Saturday evening includes quizzing, are there any plans for Saturday evening food/takeaway/onsite provision? I imagine that Pat and Helen will be doing their own thing (as each of them is bringing their partner - this is one way in which Pat is celebrating her Silver Wedding!), I imagine Dick and I at least will be aiming to have some kind of refreshment (other than of the purely liquid type) on Saturday night!

Can you book Pete Daniel and Andrew Hunter in for the BQC and highbrow please.

We'd both like to do the pairs as well but not together as we tend to know the same things, so can you put us both in the lucky dip bucket please.

Thanks

Pete

PS Chris - I'm sorry I couldn't make the last quiz after saying I'd go.

I'll be bringing some extra money with me to pay for the sausage rolls and pork pies you had baked specially for me.

I'll only be there for the BQC (three-line whip for Timon of Athens in the evening, make what you like of that). I'm hoping to get to the Highbrow in London on Sunday.

Money follows by Paypal, my stock of used fivers and anonymous brown envelopes currently being exhausted.

Ken, re Saturday meal....

See the original schedule: we have listed "18.15 - 20.00" as "Free time". This will allow those who wish to eat 'early' (buffet lunch is circa 2.30pm) to do so, either by ordering food from the bar or eating in the hotel restaurant, or somewhere off-piste. Alternatively, others may wish to eat late (10.00+ 'ish).

I'm not sure what my own plans are - it depends on how much packing I can get done during the Highbrow Quiz - and I'll want a quick shower before going out. I do recall though that last year, by the time I was ready, everyone had buggered off into town and left me on my Jack Todd. I had to amuse myself at the bar, watching World War III break out as one drunken young member of a party from a nameless Principality discovered her sister had been snogging her fella!

Watch this space!

Lucky you Chris! Perhaps the hotel can arrange a similar cabaret this year?

Turns out Dick can't make it - please withdraw his name. I believe I will still come - there is a possible doubt; however, assuming I can make it, I would be happy to be thrown in the gene pool of un-paired pairs (!), to see whether I can rely on the kindness of strangers to team up with me.

Ken

Hi, Chris -

I've been laid up for a few weeks & unfortunately won't be able to travel to Lichfield.
Sorry to miss the day.

Andy


Sorry to hear you're not well Andy. Chris

Please count me in for Saturday only, everything except the Lowbrow, what a surprise!
