Hi Dominique,

I had an idea that films were going to be shown on Saturday afternoon - but nobody told me about times and where this was taking place - as I'm not going to the convention dinner this year - I hope I will get to meet everyone at the screening on Saturday and also in the convention.

Hi Simon, it would of been nice to meet you, and others, but I don`t think I will be there now.

My sons other half booked a family day thing on a group on for Sunday they have to use that day, thinking we were going next week ( !!! ??? ).Well ahem etc.

I`ve not been too well so thought shall I try on my own, but today a screeching noise is coming from the passenger side front wheel.

Its maybe in cahoots with the non cine ladies at this end !!!

We will try to go to Farnsworth though, so maybe a few of us will meet up there.

I can`t use public transport so looks like it will need to be February after all. But thats a very nice event that needs the support too.

But really looking forward to hearing what people do and get at Blackpool etc.

Best Mark.

i am very dissapointed at once again not being able to attend, this was the year i was going to ensure i did but unfortunately there are too many things going on at home and tomorrow we have a big meeting at work so i will glad to get to Friday evening after work if its still open for business.
I will look forward to hearing what films you have all got and hopefully see some pictures of the event on here and will keep fingers crossed that there will be another next year [Wink]

Phil from Classic Home Cinema has confirmed he will come : "We shall be there with a first class selection of films and equipment,, most is not listed on our website. We will also have film cleaner , splicing tapes, lamps etc to stock up on. We have unusual items like CIR splicers in s8 16, 9.5 and 35mm.
We also have speakers by Craven and Elmo pairs. We have a super curtain motor as well as lenses, parts, and bits & bobs
We look forward to seeing you there. Our website is up to date, and we hope to upgrade the list with all the new stuff that's not sold shortly after Blackpool.
We don't plan to take much 16mm, so it you want any tell us now.(Dave Guest has a vast 16mm library to liquidate)
In the meantime we are busy packing and will load up on Friday."

Come on Brian, keep up with the times, you don't lick stamps now, they are self adhesive. Though it could be difficult peeling them off the backing with those gloves on. [Big Grin]

Hi Simon please thank your uncle Geoff for me, that would of been so good of him, though we are a bit out of the way here.

But I still can`t come without my ( nutty ) van and my sons support really.

I don`t want to get too into my problems, but I feel I should explain to a degree, I can`t even go in my sons car for various reasons.

I have two plastic garden chairs in my home I sit on I wash regularly, that I have very large towels on I wash each day.

In my van its driver seat and one in the back I can sit on, that have various covers on, then cotton ones over those I can wash each day. Some days I can get 2 days out of them, but still need to shower and change as soon as back in the house anyway.

Those 2 house and 2 van seats are the only places I can sit down. But I can`t really say relax on.

Also I can only use my toilet, or the small one in the van for anything, that I have sole dominion over if you will.

I go through 10,000 to 20,000 disposeable gloves a month. And to be honest it was going to be embarressing if I needed to touch anything with them, at Blackpool etc.

Also I couldn`t shake hands or sit down etc. I also needed my sink in the van there too.

Thats just the tip of my iceberg, it can be very wearing.

But thats enough about me.

Its going to be a great event.

Thank youy again Simon, that was so very kind and thoughtful of you and your Uncle.

Best Mark.

Mark,

I regard you as a friend - you have sold me 2 digital projectors - which are still giving me loads of viewing pleasure along with my Super 8 and 16mm - please look after yourself and hopefully we will meet at Blackpool again in the future.

Hi David same here and glad they are both still doing so well.

It would of been nice to meet up David ( G ) too. But sure we will sometime.

I honestly thought I would pull it off this year.

At least those of us who don`t make it can enjoy it through the forum and pics etc.

Best Mark.

Got to Blackpool at 1.15pm - good look around on the promenade and winter gardens and cracking food at The Imperial. I'll pop into The Grand Saturday afternoon.
