Ok - St Abbs is only three weeks away!! Can I have a show of hands of who is coming along with how many days you are planning on staying. Also, times of arrival and accomodation plans please.

I'm off to pack my stripey swimming costume and get the wheels on the bath-house covered in goose grease in preparation. Tally-ho!

I'll be there, most probably with my brother in tow and I think we'll be arriving early Saturday and leaving late Sunday (weather permitting of course)

I think we'll be camping at Scoutscroft, sorry but nothings concrete as of yet, I'll be able to give you a better idea after this weekend.

Looking forward to it, all those who don't turn up will be getting slagged off in a BIG WAY!!!  ;)

C'mon peeps!!! lets see some hands please..

Jay, can you give an update on whats happening, boat hire etc, do you want any money off of us? if so please let me know and I'll send it off forthwith.

Where are you staying? did u say Scoutscroft?

sixty plus members now, where are all of the responses??

I'm hoping for a big turnout so heres hoping there's gonna be more people responding

C'mon people, St ABBS, boat dives, shore dives, beer drinking, more dives, more beer, and some more diving, oh and a beer or two all combined into a nice long bank holiday... don't delay, decide today  :biggrin:

Ok - spoke to Billy tonight and managed to wrangle a good deal I think:

We have 6 places booked twice on Saturday and again on Sunday (and Monday if needed) so it looks like we can all boat dive the whole weekend.

Dive times are either:

9am and 1pm or
11am and 3pm

I have told Billy that we will fit in with his schedule as he has managed to fit us all in at such short notice on such a busy weekend.

I NEED 6 divers for this PLEASE

So far we have:

Jay
Andy
Dave
Eddy

I have another few divers coming form Huddersfield (another dive club) so we can pan a few places off on them if necessay BUT it would be nice to have a strong contingent from Yorkshire Divers to make up a good dive team.

Billy has checked the tides and they are perfect all weekend for diving the Glanmire (30m+ wreck offshore) so I have asked to do that on one of the days if possible.

I'm really looking forward to this one so lets all make sure we make it up and have a great weekend.

I would also appreciate some cash from each of you so we can buy a bottle of scotch for Billy for helping us out. Not going to be much each so hopefully this is ok with you all.

Regards

Ok I can lay my hands on a 6 man family tent type thingy with bedrooms or a simple 2 man tent... which should I get, understanding that it'll be a big job putting the 6 man tent up and down again, which I don't mind as long as there are hands on deck, or do you think caravans will be available at Scoutscroft? I'll probably just bring the 2 man if everyone else is sorted

Anyway lemme know...

Eddie, if your reading this, what are you doing for sleeping arrangements??

Who's bringing the barbie??

So whats it going to cost for the boat Jay?

working on the premise that we fill it up with 6 divers, how much per diver, per dive?

Yup I can get one, not the best tho as the flash is integrated and I've found that unless the subject has their nose pressed up against the bloody lense, they are wiped out by backscatter, so unless we have crystal clear 15m Viz your not gonna see much.

Didn't Eddie mention something about having a good one??

BTW haven't heard from the old Scouse/Dutchman in a while, is he still coming?

Jay, you suggested that if Abbs is blown out that we move on to Loch Fyne, great idea I thought, till I checked where it is.... bloody ell mate, its nearly all the way to Oban, isn't there somewhere further up the East coast that we could hit, salt or freshwater, doesn't matter as long as we can pitch the tents, get wet and get pissed around the fire.

Hi all, I have had so much trouble with my cable modem (2 new ones in two weeks) unbelievable! I am hoping to return to normal on Monday morning. Ok about next week, I am coming up with the wife! she read that your wives are going so she has decided to come aswell, but she will not be diving! she is on beta blockers for her high blood pressure, anyway, I am bringing a two person tent plus loads of beer, do you want me to pick up a bottle of scotch for the captain? I can get it cheaper on the boat! let me know, Andy mate, everything ok? and Dave, I will not forget your computer! even though mine hasn't arrived yet! I will use my wifes! we are both looking forward to the weekend, we will be leaving on the Sunday about midday though as its my wifes birthday! ok thats about it untill I get back on line again on Monday!
