This is obviously not a 'what a great day we had' thread. It is a heads up for another big single day event in the MM Calender. Below is last years report from it.
My understanding is that they are hoping for a similar pit line up as Anglesey, that would be epic....but i do love to see some of the less exotic stuff, Tommys old 912, the 2002, the Pinderwagen etc

Anyone able to come along and help out will be warmly welcomed but please be prepared to get stuck in to any task that needs doing. Unloading/loading, handy with a sweeping brush ? etc. The non glam stuff still needs sorting. :thumb:

It'd be good to see a healthy number of NL volunteers at each event 'going forward' (you know how I hate that expression and bullshit bingo in general and don't use it lightly..:lol:)

I'm on Holiday on the 15th, sadly sleeping off a Pete Tong hangover in Manchester most probably, If I headed over when I'm awake, I'd probably do more harm than good :lol:

I've entered it in my work diary. Just need to confirm that it's OK to include it in my home diary too. I don't think there are any child/Christmas things booked in, but that doesn't mean there aren't.

Just got Simon’s email. Will have a chat with Jon. If we could only do a few hours but not the whole day, would that be any good?

I am in! No child-related activities on that day. Only available on the Friday itself, but as it's hundreds of miles closer than Anglesey, I should be OK for a day trip. :thumb:
