    Nope, just the evening. Although some were there from 5.30 I think the last time. By all means contact Steve on the flyer and he'll give you the gen.
    One of these days... I'm going to cut you into little pieces.

    I reckon that they'd be just up his street... Hope you get your website up and running again soon!

    Marco.

    P.S Enjoy the bake-off if you go to it. I know that the guys will be in for a treat when they hear your gear...
    Thanks Marco,

    As I'm winding down some of my operations, I can only offer the Arcam 5 and 5+ players as upgraded units - call for details 01246 200096
    or if I'm off wandering: 07950 324075

    The website will be down for the present as I'm altering the way I work this year so I'm putting systems in place to ensure the smooth running
    of the business after I've retired/expired. There are many new projects nearing completion so there'll be a fresh look to the old company.

    I do look forward to joining the members at the bakeoff and we'll be trundling the caravan up to the north east on Thursday before the bash.

    All the best,

    Les

    Once again, a quick plug for the bake off as the time draws nearer.

    From what I gather from the organiser there should be a wealth of kit and expertise in attendance and all AoS members are welcome. As previously stated there will be a nominal cover charge of a few quid to cover the food and drink the venue are putting on. Anyone interested in taking gear or showing off DIY work should contact Steve who's put the time and effort into making it happen.

    (Unfortunately I can't attend this one as I'm taking Mrs B away for her birthday thus earning browing points which I'll cash in for the eventual AoS show when that happens)

    Having been to the last event, this one promises to be even better and I hope to see everyone again at a future event.

    I don't think Rich went at all, Marco. But maybe someone who did would like to spill the beans?

    Brilliant evening, great sounds and good company. Thanks to the organisers for making it happen. Hope there's another one soon.
    Lots of budding David baileys were there so Im sure someone will post some pics....
