    Echo Maverick's comments - Sid, it's a real shame that running the event has left bad memories for you and Ann. I came to the Wee-kend in 2010 and had a great time, with a fantastic welcome. I wasn't at the event this year, so I won't comment on the, er, 'workshop management' problems you faced during the weekend.

    However, I'm not going to apologise for not coming down. I posted that I couldn't make it on the "I'm in" thread, about half way down this page, post #120, over a month before the event. At that point there were names on the reserve list to take my place. My reasons are f*** all to do with anyone on here, but I believe a clear month was sufficient notice.

    I think Judge's suggestion is spot-on - maybe a non-refundable deposit in advance is the way to go?

    I think

    We should put this to bed now before comments are made that sours what has been a great event over the years.
    Sid, it's your call but it is and always has been a great event, if you feel it can or can't carry on it's up to you. For the rest of us I think we all agree if it is to continue then maybe an up front payment is the way to go.

    OK, with hindsight, I now agree with BHT's decision to edit my post last night. As rightly noted above, I don't want to overshadow what was a great event with lots of fantastic people present. I have lots of good memories of the event and sorry if my moaning on here has been out of proportion.

    Might be best if I close this thread now?
