Strange, I can still see them. It's 3 video's showing what's going on at the fishery.
(They can take a while to load.)

How’s it looking there for the 23rd. Do you think it will all be OK by then.

I've just watched the videos.
Unless it's a network issue, ie download speed to your browser.

The 23rd is looking fine as long as we're not all washed away by then :)

I use an iPad and I do sometimes have problems with links, especially videos.

Looking good so far - I can't wait

Got a string of stuff to wade through, sort out, and finish first, and tomorrow's Wednesday :eek:

There's a certain inevitability about me not appearing for fish-ins at the last minute.....

So sorry guys, I'm afraid I'm going to have to cancel this weekend. :cry:

It's all to do with the brambles.

Let me explain:
I have a large back garden. A very large back garden, big as a football field, and it's starting to resemble the Amazonian rain forest. Neighbours houses are in permanent shade from the trees, brambles as thick as your thumb are taking over their neat little conifer hedges like an invasion of Triffids. The Council are sending me rude letters. It's not that I don't try to keep the vegetation under control but there's only so much you can do when you're only home at the weekend.

So, SWMBO has had enough and has decided to call in the heavy mob - tree surgeons, bulldozer, shredder, skips. We are going to clear the decks and start again -
"Why this weekend?" says I. "You knew I was going fishing!"
"Plenty of time for you to go fishing when you retire next year, this work needs doing NOW!"

Who am I to argue? I know it's all going to make my life easier in the future but it's just s** t timing....... :(

@ Dave,
Sorry to mess you about, please put my deposits in the pot for the prize fund or some other worthy cause.

The rest of you gentlemen, I hope you all have a brilliant weekend and look forward to seeing all the pics and write-ups.

See you all soon.

@Dave,
With the change in numbers for the pairs, will both days now be on Ash, or will you still be splitting it between ash and pines??
