    Well guys, I will have to remove myself from the list now. As Bill and tuffy know from when I met them a few weeks ago, I can usually get the Sunday morning off until about 2-3ish but I need to work the whole weekend as sales at work have been good and I need all the staff possible, including myself! Any other time though (after Christmas) and I will be good!

    Updated list:

    Gops - 8L S3
    JoJo - 8L S3

    If we're going on 'til past 4pm, can we agree a running order? I've got a 2hr drive to get back home so would rather not run at the end of the order.

    Running order is typically in order of arrival... anyone wanting to get on earlier can negotiate with others to swap slots... I think thats the easiest/fairest way to manage it tbh...

    I can't see it being a major issue and we will always try and accommodate as best we can but obviously you need to be there to be able to work out where to slot you in as I don't think agreeing a running order on the thread actually works...

    There will be forms to fill out so we know whos who and so Bill can process the results after the day... these will get numbered in order and we can sort the logistics from there... anyone with a requirement to get into a sooner slot then we can work it out on the day... ideally you would just 'swap' slots as 'inserting' you means everyone else after you gets affected...

    Looking forward to it :D

    I may have to go for an earlier slot as well if possible :)

    But we can sort that on the day.....thats if i make it, my car went off the road last night as my fuel pump died!!

    Im hopefully getting it sorted, so will update accordingly.

    Anyone convoying up???

    I know what you mean, Maz.

    Re meeting up en route, carl-1968 & I are meeting at Tamworth services at 8.30am.

    StaceyS3 - a new aquarium? Can't you just keep the fish in a bucket or something until funds stretch to a new tank? Or get some silicone sealant on the case?

    Tbh it's mainly the family time as the only 2 days off in the last few weeks have been spent working on the car or thrashing it round a track ;)

    Did contemplate putting the fish in the bath for a day or so and repair it but tank has done a good few years and I've needed to upgrade to a bigger one so now seems like the obvious time
