It was great to meet all you great people.

A White Oozy Premium was left in the hall and it is currently in my care.  Drop me a PM if is legitimately yours and I'll work to get it back into your clammy hands.


I havent checked my kit but I was using one and left in a rush. Is it well warn? No paint around the hole? I'll check my bags now

Yeah Cand1es, looks like it's mine. [insert swear word here] Turns out I left one of my hoodies too but Ingi is bringing that up to Leeds for me to collect at some point.

Good fun, if a bit damp and windy at times.
Click click, all! :-)
If you don't want to BUY MY BOOKS 😉, then why not ask your local library to order them in, and read them for free? That would help too. Cheers!

Two favourite quotes from the weekend:
"I twiddle from the middle"
"...but I'm the ken, not the tama!"

Congratulations Rob, I'm sure you'll do great in Japan!

I'm looking forward to seeing if any dan jam runs emerge from the day, as they're always good entertainment.

Gutted that I couldn't make it, it seems to have been a great turnout! However, I'll see many of you in Almere :)

Lovely meeting you all (again).
Thanks to the Void for the organising the event and cheers to everyone for all the tips!


Such an amazing time guys. Please please let's do it again next year. Much love to those that supported ARK in particular. Happy to sponsor a little bit this year as well. Things are moving forward. Today I got sponsored by CWCS unexpectedly. Still in shock of it all really.

If anyone's making a video... this still could go in, if you like.
