We've put the new dates on our calendar (which has pretty well nothing on it for the near future - surprise, surprise  ::) )
You've got a calendar  :) ?  I've got no idea what day it is never mind the month  :o !
Yep - and sitting in a metal tube with some cougher's doesn't sound a great idea to anyone (I suspect the hit on the travel industry (aircraft, cruises and even bus tours) is going to be pretty bad for the next few years.

We are booked to go to Crete early September.
As a Nick said being stuck in a confined space with lots of others doesn’t fill me with enthusiasm either.

Yup - little choice but to postpone I reckon JR. We've put the new dates on our calendar (which has pretty well nothing on it for the near future - surprise, surprise  ::) )
Hope everyone is doing OK in the meantime...

Good Call JR.
Will TRY to make the new dates, and
clearly have to content myself with just looking at Sparkle
rather than testing all my new engine, exhaust design  and VHF improvement work.

Inevitably  I'm going to have to postpone this event.  We are only 4 weeks away and the current situation makes me doubt that travel restrictions will have been eased by then - never mind camp sites being open or anything else for that matter!  I've set a provisional new date for August 27th in the hope that we'll be able to arrange something by then (if the date doesn't suit then let me know please).

Oh, thanks Nick. How boring. I thought that you might be starting a circus... ;D

Tis a circle of 240 volt sockets connected so that if a workshop has ten sockets, then they are all connected using one circle and you thus don't need to have three wires connecting EVERY socket back to the supply board.
They seem to be ONLY used for 240 volt wall sockets and never for electric lighting.


More importantly, WHAT is the next project--- i.e. will it hum and drum ? ;)

Right now when I'm not "working from home" I'm amusing myself by finally setting up my workshop. , next is the ring main

What is a Ring Main? thanks

I'll most likely make a decision in consultation with John in 8 1/2 weeks time. Things are changing so fast that who knows what will happen. The word on the street in the Gloucester health care trust is that things may get better in the warmer months and then another peak occurs in the autumn.

Right now when I'm not "working from home" I'm amusing myself by finally setting up my workshop. Theres now a nice new concrete floor and decent lighting, next is the ring main and some posh shelving then I'll have to begin the next project! As long as I can still get deliveries I'll be ok!

I am currently adapting to changes by "masterly disdain" ::)
People are ALREADY crossing the road when they see others walking to the shops etc, so, although
it is "NOT NICE" it is also perhaps necessary.
I think we Hovercrafty types are perhaps better placed than the average as we usually have stuff to fiddle with in the mean time?
I agree with John that matters will evolve and will monitor with each week.
I have renewed my Camping club membership, as that may be important as air travel to sunnier climes appears close to illegal ATM.
A GSOH may be our best approach?

I was thinking about the campsite, judging by the camping, caravan and motorhome web pages  that I'm on, lots seem to be closing down for the duration and discouraging tourism.  Possible  lack of provisions , pubs, cafes and Restaurants & fuel . ::)

Not really possible to make any decisions at the moment.  Provided no travel restrictions are active the event should be viable (and safe - plenty of space up here for distancing).  Only downside is that the pubs/hotels will likely be closed - luckily there is a convenient local brewery!

If anyone doesn't want to attend then that's perfectly understandable - although I suspect that in nine weeks time most people will be desperate for some distraction and  fresh air!

Just wondering what happening to Scottish hovering due to the current virus situation ? can it be delayed till later in the year ?

No Licence needed to take PWC out on the sea & tidal rivers here in the UK Eric, they'll let any idiot take a craft out (and there are more than enough idiots (present company excepted) I can assure you)
Inland waterways are a little more regulated but you still don't need a personal "Licence"
