Ripley 2009

Am I imagining it, or has the date changed? I'm sure when I first checked I was actually off work on the weekend of this meet. Now, I need to put in for time off. Is the date fixed now? I realise it's early days but my shifts are fixed for many years to come, so getting a few days off out of rota needs some cunning planning.

Yes, the date is changed from 08 - the pub double booked and we lost out.

So for 09 it's 18-21 June 2009, at Ripley. Registration opens soon.

There will be other events, currently in the planning!

That's OK I'll get the time off booked early. I'll be at Ripley. Probably in the Travelodge before anyone mentions it.

I dont know whether this is of any relevance at all, but the 18 -21 june is also the British F1 Grand prix at Silverstone.

I have bought my F1 tickets so as much as i would have liked to go to Ripley, i will look out for other events with HU

Cheers

Good man! Sell that bloody ticket on the internet, then take out a Gold or Contributing Horizons Membership and do yourself a favour. And still have loads of money left over. And bring your doctor to Ripley too.

tickets on sale yet?

bit confused after the mini-meet in Somerset last weekend.
couple of guys said that tickets were already selling quickly, but the site says registration will start soon.

Is there a HU black market, or have I just been mis-informed?
