    64000 rupees sent to your offshore a/c to cover me and my little airhead, looking forward to seeing You and Ann, hopefully whilst enjoying a 1976 style heatwave.

    Cheers John.

    PS. I will call you nearer the event.

    Many thanks for the further bookings, it's coming along nicely now.

    I'm off on holiday from Thursday 2nd May until 28th May but I hope to be able to get online and keep in touch most of the time. Problem is with my email as I switched my home Broadband from Orange to BT and still have a few technical issues.

    If anyone has contacted me by email only, then please either send me Private Message or post on here and I'll get back to you.

    Other things are all coming along nicely so I'll post separate threads and keep this one "clean" just for those who are booking in.

    Still plenty of room for everyone and remember, all are welcome and this will be the best value UKGSer event of the year!

    Apologies to anyone who has been trying to contact me during last 10 days. Only managed to get a few minutes of free McDonalds Wifi in Valencia and then nothing for a while. Even my super new smart phone has given up. Not viewed any emails in last ten days now so not seen any paypal receipts.

    There appears to still be plenty of places still available as several people have posted on the other thread that they want to come but have not yet confirmed for definite. Last minute bookings are not a problem as it is easy to buy extra food etc at last minute. Obviously what we want to avoid is the situation when people say they are coming but drop out at last minute.

    I guarantee that this event will once again be one of the best social events of the year with good food, good booze and excellent company. See previous years reports for proof of this.

    And now the bad news

    Everytime we get near to the event, I have a family crisis. Previous years have included my oldest son cracking his head open.
    I just heard this morning that my 83 year old father has been taken into HDU (High Depenancy Unit) in Jersey as he is seriously ill and it doesn't look good. My sister is a senior hospice nurse and she has told me to get to Jersey ASAP so I'm currently in St Malo on Tuesday night waiting to get 7.00 am Wednesday ferry over to Jersey. Latest news is that my father is "stable" but on a respirator so I suspect he may not have long left. Several times I been told to fly over to Jersey and everytime I get there the old git is 100% OK. My presence usually worries him. "If you have flown over here then I must be seriously ill" Joking aside, we both know that he is on borrowed time and I am the executor of his will so I have to be there. If the old git is inconsiderate enough to check out just before Gentlemen's Week-end then I'll have to ask them to put him on ice until after the event when I can return to Jersey to sort things out.

    However, I know that all my good friends on here will help in everyway to ensure that the event is unaffected by anything my family throw at me.

    Sumprat is coming down to Devon from Saturday 1st June so he can assist with all arrangements to do with food and accomodation. Arrive whenever you like, and Sumprat will ensure that you are fully taken care of.

    Also, Proff remains a valued friend who can be contacted with any questions regarding the event and the logistics of all things Airhead related.

    Its at times like this that you reallyappreciate all your good friends especially those from this site. A huge thanks to all those good friends that I know I can rely on to help me at this difficult time, too many to mention.

    Sid

    Sid, really sorry to hear about your 'Auld git', if there is anything I can do to help, please let me know.

    Sometimes in these situations you just want folk to 'Feck off' and sometimes there is something that folk can do to help.

    All the best mate, looking forward to seeing you all.

    Many thanks for the kind words and the various fresh bookings that have come in.

    My Dad really does appear to be immortal. My sister never thought he would survive as his pulse and blood pressure were so low but he appears to be recovering. He was in Intensive Care but they have moved him to a normal ward. He was last heard bitterly complaining that the BBC were not showing the Monaco F1 qualifying live and the hospital TV did not have Sky Sports F1. He's not missed an F1 race in decades so he's not happy. We might have to try to spring him from the hospital in the morning so he can watch the race at home.

    Meanwhile, my mother has been taken into the local hospice.

    I've just collected a massive Fruits de Mare (Seafood Platter)for this evening and will be having an enormous feast and booze up here in Jersey tonight.

    Less than two weeks to go now.

    Travelling from the North

    If anyone is travelling from the North on the Friday and wouldn`t mind me tagging along (I`ll buy my own coffee, refrain from farting and behave myself) then I`d be pleased to meet them on the route down?

    I should be traveling from North Lincolnshire, leaving around noon..............

    Any kindly fellow travellers please PM me.

    Ride Safe.
