    I beg to differ sir.i think your negativity about the negativity about the negativity is wrong

    Just unbelievable.

    2 days after a hugely successful show. I just cant believe it.

    We should be doing NOTHING but reflecting in the glory of what happened.

    Yes, possibly some things could have been improved. But now is not the time.
    The guys in charge did a fantastic job. leave it to them . This isnt a democracy. It wouldnt work. If they want ideas debated, let them suggest it in 6 months. Not now!!!!!

    Next thing we will be hiring in PR folks. appointing a project manager. a financial advisor. a man in a yellow jacket, directing traffic. Someone on the front door inspecting the suitability of any music brought in. Sorry sir, I cant let you in with that tie and suit on. Jeez, its an enthusiasts show, for us. Rough edges and all, it is fantastic.

    Lets savour this, not start in-fighting.

    Both spot on! I had a little rant earlier that probably didn't help, but I'm more calm now I've had extra medication!

    Moans about the show? Only one really. The fucking bar ran out of real beer. Again.

    Negativity about the negativity is positive, surely?!? Or would further negativity negate that?

    I was drinking Timothy Taylors on Saturday afternoon after the Bishop's Finger ran out. They did have some for a while & it was rather nice.

    Next year, we should check in advance if Rabski is planning a bender, and let the hotel know accordingly

    Not entirely Rabski's fault as me and Sam and a few others rocked-up around noon on Saturday and hammered the Bishop's Finger pretty hard - we were knocking on the door of double-figure pintage by 5pm...

    Any problems involved a very small minority of exhibitors (who were fabulously understanding - thank you) and as far as I know were almost unnoticed by visitors.

    I think they affected the organisers far more than anyone else.

    Beer - I will discuss this with SH as I made a point of asking them to ensure there was enough. I even suggested they could get a keg of real ale from a local brewery and bill us directly for it!

    I'm sure the 60th birthday brigade were also hitting the bar pretty hard.

    Let's ask Castle Rock from Nottingham to sponsor the event next year. I got them to provide 3 barrels for Mrs Uzinusa's birthday the other yr for a bash at the Boat Club in Nottingham and it was, as ever superb! Superb. Oh, and there were only 120 of us. That's a keg between 40 and not counting the 3 cases of wine etc etc etc and the odd, very odd driver :-)

    By the time they got there, the Bishop had a severely depleted finger I'm afraid.

    Next year I'll be exhibiting again, if all goes to plan, so in view of the kit (and especially the Well Tempered) I will be going a tad lighter in terms of consumption. Best cancel about three kegs.
    I know that you believe you understand what you think I said, but I’m not sure you realise that what you heard is not what I meant.
