Yes, I admit I am panicking a little as I am worried we may not have enough people at the outset on the feed station, but I have yet to check the outlawsupport email address for final figures so am trying to keep my wibbles at bay.

Unfortunately communiction between Barlos and I is brief at the moment and, although with the best of intentions, he has rather jumped the gun and tried to rally people round on my behalf without knowing proper numbers (so there may well not be an issue at all)

Aside from the info needed by OSB by close of play tonight, I was going to send an email later this week asking what people's expectations were for coming and going throughout the day.

So please don't feel pressured by Barlos' post.  It was done with the best of itnentions but he does not know what is going on behind the scenes

Sounds like a request to pedal slowly to give you more time to set up the bar and barbie ready for me....

I think it is a fair point though, because there will be a lot to do to set up (from what I remember from the year I was there) and I don't know what the deal is with turning up later; will folk be able to get there under their own steam (i.e. by car), or will they close the road off at all, not allowing people past after a certain time?  Also I'm not sure when we have to go marshall other points, so if there aren't really enough folk to start with, then there defo won't be enough on the feed station if folk have to go elsewhere

Though as Schmunks says, it might be fine, so i should probably not suggest otherwise...

Lee - as far as I can see from the map there is a village relatively close to the point that isn't on the route, so parking there should be an option

I will be there from the beginning, or will be if I can get there - I don't do cycling any more or I'd cycle with Seren

I could fit you in my rucksack debbo

The getting there is the only issue with me too - if anyone has a large enough rucksack to get me there with debbo for 6.30 could they let me know?

I will have one spare seat in my car

Jj - you can sit on my knee, as you're not as heavy as me despite me being a short arse

except I won't be on the campsite

I may not be on the campsite but am happy to pick up a body for my spare seat. I also assume we will be aiming to go in convoy?

Whilst I remember - Lee... remind me I owe you several drinks on Sunday night / Monday afternoon! Everytime I have met you it has been whilst you have been helping me one way or another!!

For anybody who hasnt met LtP yet - she will be the one with a massive smile doing everything she can to help others!!!
