    Major suckfest, but they probably made the right call...

    It is a shame but probably the wiser choice. I do agree with the money stakes though, very good news for the wallets and potential CE savings account [face_money_eyes]

    But does this stop us from having a joint meet up?

    D'oh. Someone got there before me.

    It's bad news, but it does clear a calendar date. Maggy is coming over to the country a few weeks before. I'd like to hope that a bunch of us would like to make the effort to come down to Manchester and meet up with her and show our honourary northern how great we really can be :)

    i don't think the real reason for cancelling was on the list, lack of guests! they only had 4 confirmed guests with 2 and a half months from the event, then as if by magic the excel is double booked, lets try another date, oh dear too many things are on that date st patricks day who cares if you want to drink go out on the night, ok mothers day might be hard but who spends the entire day with their mother? the footy, why would showmasters care about 'the strain on local hotels' footy starts at 3pm and finishes at around 5pm gmex starts at 9-10am and finishes at 6pm
    smells like christopher lee to me
