Well said!

Although I'm still sworn to secrecy on the venue, I can clarify that it's not the Racing Circuit.

Glad you're looking forward to it.

Just missed you Sam. Will pick up next week. I will be heading off to Bristol on Sunday for a "brainstorming session" with Craig and a few others to generate ideas for growth for the charity.
No doubt I'll get a to understand a bit more about the decision around its future relationship with HU.

Not much longer to wait now until all the HUBB UK event info goes live on the website - early next week all being well.

I won't be around to see it unfortunately - well, fortunately really - because Birgit and I are heading off on Libby and Putney (Birgit's 'new' bike - a 1984 R80ST) to ride the trails and back roads of Spain. Can't wait. Big kid here No plans, no bookings other than the ferry, no link ups with anyone (except travelling friends just over the border in France who we haven't seen for 6 years – met them in Africa) and no ideas about the things one 'should' see. We are just going to ride! Let the bikes take us where they will.

I'll be completely and wonderfully incommunicado for a month but I’ll be back at the beginning of October. Iain is looking after everything in the meantime - thanks mate. I do feel a tad guilty at leaving everything to him for a whole month, but the open road is calling : ) I’m really looking forward to catching-up with everything when we are back.

Tomorrow

Good news... if everything goes to plan the HUBB UK event pages, including pre-registration, will be going online tomorrow morning.

Once they're live, I'll start a new 'announcements' thread and keep this thread open for general event discussion/questions.

Pre-registration is now open!

With congratulations to Gareth Jenkins for being the first person to pre-register before the announcement had even been made, I'm pleased to report that the HUBB UK event pages are now online.

Event updates will be posted in this thread.

268 days to go!

Iain, just a quickie, I've pre-registered as an Adventure Traveller to get in early, but I was wondering what happens if between now and then I do something presentation-worthy, pluck up the courage and offer to do a presentation?

Or if one of the fora I belong to decide to try for a space and con me into manning their stand?

In other words, being a tightwad, should I pay now? Or leave it till the last minute (Oct) in case by then I would be paying less?

Oh, and a quick sub-question on fora/club stands, if it's a single marque club, and if we get some bumph from the manufacturer are we a club or a trade stand? I presume not trade as we're not trading, but then we are publicising.

I know, I'm a pain, I'll go now.

Thanks for pre-registering Alex - just seen your form details come through.

You should pay now to make sure you get the lowest rate if your situation doesn't change, but if you do end up being a presenter or one of the two people manning a club stand then we'll be able to refund you. So it's win win all round

That would all be absolutely fine. You'd still be a "Club" in the HUBB Zone.

The nature of the venue means that to all intents and purposes there isn't a capacity, so no worries on that score
