Wristbands arrived here the other day as well. Earlier than last year IIRC. All the more time to panic about losing them.

And weird to be getting two the same colour for the first time.

Will probably be going by train, and between that and my implacable laziness am unlikely to be anywhere near the first on site!

I'll prob get there fairly early and will happily try to find somewhere like we did last year. We ended up on the edge of 9 I think last year, but it certainly wasn't where planned as the planned area was already all taken. It did highlight the importance of getting peoples' mobile numbers so that we could let people know where we were though!

You will find us though? I'm not sure the wee wan will be old enough for the beer tent and Winged Ox (though as last time we were there we hung around outside that won't be a problem), and besides will need to sleep in the evenings so one of us will need to be at the camp then.
Oh I have every intention of finding you [Smile]

(Actually I was planning on volunteering some babysitting services for one evening, if there was something you both wanted to go to. Though if it's Billy Bragg then I'll volunteer someone other than me cos I'm not missing him! [Big Grin] )

We're all assuming the race course won't be under water.

Getting serious now -- discussing who's gonna be there first and what area to aim for.

I recall being on the edge of 9 last year as well. There was yoof around which got noisy at points but not unbearably so. The best defense is a good offense (as far as night noise goes).

I've just signed the contract on my house. The proposed closing date is the 23rd so I'm reasonably certain I'll be sitting in an office somewhere in Houston on that day rather than at GB.

I have a ticket that I think I paid 75 quid for. Anybody want to buy it?

(This is a serious personal downer but I'm trying to do the Brit thing and deal with it -- stiff upper lip and all that)

Yes, we will be very sorry to miss you.

We haven't bought tickets yet, though, and would be happy to buy one from you (and then would still be looking for one!)

(thinks to self, how nice it would be to meet you for lunch...)

I noticed that, and wondered if Greenbelt would have a news update on its website about `monitoring conditions', etc.

Of course, the well-being of people in the area is more important than a little festival.

There is this statement on the GB front page;

quote:
Weather latest – the show goes on

Thanks for all your calls and emails concerning the flooding in Gloucestershire and how this might affect Greenbelt. Our site team live and work out of Cheltenham and we are in daily contact with the Racecourse there – which is unaffected by any flooding – and Greenbelt will be going ahead as planned.* We will continue to update you on this situation – if it changes – via the website and through email Dispatches. This is a very busy time of the year for us, so we'd appreciate it if you didn't call or email the office about this issue.

*This is not to ignore that things are extremely difficult for Gloucestershire residents at present. Our thoughts are with them.

So, it's still on, further inundation permitting.

Well, of course it will be dry - I've just purchased a lovely new pair of wellies for the occasion. I'm sure they'll still come in handy for traipsing to the bogs in the middle of the night, or for collecting water at the taps.

Bah, what kind of an excuse is being in another country on 23rd? At the moment it looks as if I'll be coming to the racecourse straight from Heathrow!

Better than a few years back when I went to Heathrow straight from the race course, because I had a meeting in Munich on the Tuesday morning. Pity the poor fellow passengers who had to share a plane with me after I'd only managed the most cursory of washes prior to leaving Cheltenham on the Monday afternoon - at least I could still take a can of deodorant in my carry on back then to spritz myself in the washrooms at the airport.

I did it that way round a couple of years ago too. But I discovered that there are showers at Gatwick. (Quite cool really, they're after passport control and there's a phone by the entrance, you call and they come down and open them up for you and give you a towel as well!) So my fellow passengers were spared the GB residue.

TME has established that my wristband is down to be going to his, but that GB are still sending them out. So I have stopped flapping (for now - I'm sure I'll find something else to flap about soon enough).

How's the weather doing? I really don't want to see all these gorgeous wellies next to my embarrassing ones [Big Grin]

The wristbands are the tickets for the festival. By having plastic straps around the wrist you can't (easily) lose them, nor pass them around so more than one person gets in on the same ticket (or, an under 16 borrows an adult ticket for a while to get into something inappropriate).

A reverend acquaintance was giving it out large a couple of weeks ago, on the qualities of the 'absolution ale' which will be one of the official drinks at this years event. Perhaps Mr M ought to reconsider?

Miff, I think you are posting on the wrong thread [Two face] [Biased]

If you and Mr Miff do decide to be here for 2008, I know a great place that has tea on tap. [Biased]

Not up for starting the suggestions,(I'd rather just go with what those who are good at planning think).

However, in terms of helping get rough numbers for how many people intend camping with the ship can I register 1 adult and 2 young people as very likely to be part of our ickle area.

Think that the numbers thing could be quite important, as would be knowing how many people have buggies, etc.

It did highlight the importance of getting peoples' mobile numbers so that we could let people know where we were though!
