    I've been very interested in meeting up with all the APUGers across the Irish Sea for some time and their Autumn 08 meetup is very close to Holyhead and absolutely ideal :D

    I'll be going and wondering if anyone wants to come too?

    I've been hoping to go too Fintan, but also trying to fit in Ilford's factory tour on the Friday and get home on Sunday (it's what you call having my cake and eating it). So at the moment.. I'm trying to work out the logistics of it all, as it's a bit of a distance from Mobberley to Angelsey.
    Are you going to go via Holyhead or Manchester?

    I could go via Manchester, I could take 3 or 4 others in the land rover. I don't mind driving.

    They've tarmaced the A5 since the Romans left, so the Holyhead road is much better now :D

    LOL Ian, I've driven to Manchester a few times and its pretty good.

    I've had a PM from Peter [thefizz] so I'll hold a spot for him while he goes on bended knee to his missus :D:D:D

    Guys, do not worry about getting from Mobberley to Anglesey - there are several of us doing that trip and I am sure spaces will be found for everyone without their own transport.

    Looking forward to seeing you.

    Cheers, Bob.
