    See you all Sunday!

    What was it that I said I would have from you for the FR when we next met, Kirk? Whatever it was, bring it along.

    I was relying on a lift back to Leeds.........

    Sorry to hear this Chris, didn’t get chance to chat much at the last one.

    I’m battling a bout of man- flu at the moment but I’ll be there tomorrow, the prospect of being branded an old soft Yorky wimp by the Mancs doesn’t appeal.

    Unfortunately, with great reluctance, I’ve had to back out, the man- flu’s got the better of me. Feeling decidedly under the weather, I wouldn’t have enjoyed the trip. Didn’t feel good last night, hoped to sleep it off but it didn’t happen. I’ll have to accept the ‘soft old
    Yorky wimp’ tag with good grace.

    Shame, I’d been looking forward to it, it’s a good event.

    Would have been no problem Paul - sadly had to sort some family stuff out today and drop the dogs at the kennels.

    Next time deffo.

    Oh, guys, what can I say? Probably my most enjoyable event of the year so far. A truly global attendance, with some undoubted TZUK royalty. Watches to drool over, but as always it is much more about the people than the watches.
    Huge thanks to Kirk (who is still out there on the lash with some of our younger members) for organising, and a personal thanks to Scott for reducing the average purchase price of my Scotch eggs to £2 each.

    We got a £2 donation from Mrs.Mattt68!!

    Also Mike Woodís QP magazines were used to good effect for (1) helping the homeless and (2) getting extra whisky shots for 008 and I.

    Really disappointed I missed it, but I definitely wasn`t well enough to come and enjoy it.

    I`ll look forward to the next one!

    Looks a great turn out - Wish I could've been there...

    Did the "Ingy" sell ?

    Sorry you weren't well Paul, and that you couldn't make it Chris.

    A big thank you to everyone there for making it a very enjoyable event, great to catch up with some old and new faces; and a special mention must go to Mike for letting me see some of my favourite, and truly grail in every sense, watches.

    Cheers

    Scott
    It's just a matter of time...

    Gutted to have missed out on this Kirk. Had I not been in Blackburn at the Adidas Spezial event I'd have been there with bells on. Until next time.
