Bit late to this, can I get an invite too please Rich and also offer the services of me and my van for any larger loads - speaker cabs, big amps, fat blokes from Hartlepool and the surrounding area.
We are the love we leave behind us.
Ok, so that's all the PM's sent so far.
From the responses I've had it looks as if we're again expecting a great turn out and some world class kit!

A trend I've noticed for the last few though is that as things wind down later on and people go we seem to run low on speaker choices with my RS5 having brought up the rear to see out the night.
Would be great if any of the local guys who'll be there for duration brought a pair of speakers just to give us a few more options for the late session. (my favourite part of the whole do if I'm honest). The late session is traditionally where the old meets the new, the cheap meets the expensive and some fascinating stuff gets played. (looking round to see the lads in pain as we went from Interstellar Overdrive to Jim Reeves to Jethro Tull to Gary Numan the last time was a treat).

Looking forward to this years mate, top man for keeping it going
