and will miss the peg draw and possibly for the
start of the comp. - :evil:

if so, can someone draw a peg for me??

OK so, we have myself, Steve, Donal D, Croppy, Kraken, KStaff, Teach, Lee, Donal, Derek, Gavin, Alby, POB and rumours of a guest appearance by Mb.3.... Anyone else?

Meeting time and place is as follows Lakeview filling station which is just off the Midleton Roundabout on the N25 (take the turn signposted Whitegate, Ballycotton etc) Be a right turn for anyone coming from the Cork direction, a left turn for the waterford side. Cant remember how well signposted this beach is so it makes sense to meet somewhere handy. I suggest we meet here between 11.15 and 11.45 to give everyone plenty of time to get the beach pegged and set up etc. Latecomers, dont worry, give me a call and we can draw a peg for you but if you're looking for someone to follow, we'll be gone by 11.45 as this spot is about 20 minutes from the beach.

Donal, you know the route a sight better than I I'm sure, can you give a turn by turn guide off the top of your head from here for any latecomers to follow please.

Weather forecast for the day as follows....

Hi guys,due to an unfortunate set of circumstances it looks like i will make this comp. :D ...apparently if i don't go Crow and Seancelt are going to call to my house and drag me down anyway (the thought of the neighbours seeing those two walking down the street is bad enough :twisted: :lol: ).

its a pity MC cant make it down to this one.. you could both share the blanks :twisted: :twisted:

Thu Sep 06, 2007 11:18 am

The unfortunate set of circumstances were that if i didn't go Crow and Hooch were going to call to my house..that's enough for anyone to get out of the house :roll: :twisted: :lol: ...Hooch is going alright :D

Hummm.. Turner & Hooch showing up on your door step.. sounds more like a Tom Hanks film than a threat :lol: :lol:

(i can feel the jinx starting)

Thu Sep 06, 2007 11:34 am

Yeah I'm going. Wyse promised to stop blubbering and whinging in his calls, texts and emails if I promised to bring him. I have a 4 month old who cries less than him. Suck it up Gav......Be a man! :lol: :lol: :lol: :twisted:
