    Anyone going?

    Although Abbot was just the second course I ever visited (after the pre-desecration Wolverhampton), it’s been 18 year since I’ve last been. Time to put that right, methinks!

    It’s not exactly next door to Hertfordshire, but then I am an idiot where taking on long trips is concerned (I’m back in London for the GBBF the following day, and music festy-ing in South Wales later the same week), and I could use a trip to Devon as a recce for mileage / petrol in case any of my point-to-pointing activity compels me to pop down that way this winter.

    With typical brilliance I’m arranging this trip just after Mesh, whom I’d mentioned catching up with for a chat at some West Country venue on several occasions, has moved from Exeter to London. Bah! No matter, if any of you are likely to be there and fancy a meet up, just drop me a PM.

    Cheers,

    Jeremy

    Jeremy, I would imagine Mully will be there taking some snaps.

    It’s one of her local tracks.

    I’m not trying to avoid you, Jeremy, but my brother’s getting married and I shall be in the old country. Altogether now "And it’s home boys home……."

    We’re trying Newton Abbot for the first time at the end of August and really looking forward to the West Country.

    Whilst driving to Ascot today I was listening to Radio 2 and there was a mention for Jeremy Grayson off to Cyprus to get married this weekend – is there something we should know?!

    I’m actually back from London for a while (in Cornwall, I’m all over the place) before I move up there on a permanent basis. I would love to come but I’m not sure if I can make it as yet.

    Newton Abbot isn’t the greatest track in the world but it’s small and friendly, and evening meetings are good. I won my first ever bet at NA on the placepot when I was 12 :wink:

    I’ll keep you posted
