Of course we should ;)

Shall I bring my PAT tester then?  I can PAT test everyone's extensions, leads, amps and PSUs for free.

as a chartered electrical engineer I will also be able to confirm that the process is largely bollocks.

No harm in having it in your boot.  And yes, I fully understand your observation ;)

I'll bring it ( and more importantly, the roll of labels ).
In truth I do very occasionally find a missing earth or something

Just had a huge, hot, vegetable dhansak so anyone trying my basses tomorrow might get a right spicy trumpet voluntary in the left ear. That is all. Don’t say you weren’t warned.

As long as you don't discover a flat earth you'll be fine.

I've decided it's overkill to bring a stack - I'm assuming people play at civilised levels not gig volumes, so I'll bring the Crush 25...

Also I dug out my old Yamaha QY10 and it works great as a simple beat box, jamming along to it sounds vastly more 'musical' than random noodling.

I am sitting in a air bnb in Manchester making a weekend of it with the family. Getting everything out of the car, into the lift and up 4 floors was joyous.

My wife has decided that she wont be coming after all. She thought there was going to loads of live bands, not just bass geeks. Plus, she was upset that there was no Intu malls nearby.

Bit of a last minute change of circumstances for me means I cant go this time 🙁

Have a great time all, I'll try not to be too jealous when reading the reports and pics 😪🤢

My Saturday plans have changed so i will pop down and bring a 5 string and a couple of 4 stringers long and short scale. Alembics. Im still not used to others playing my basses so please understand if i look paranoid whilst handing it over. I like to keep all my instruments in pristine condition so No picks please and no clothing or jewellery lanyards etc that may damage the finish.

I just had a lovely drive from Rugeley to Doveridge, just to get my bearings really, but it’s so nice here in the village hall car park basking in the sun I might just have a kip until kick off...

...zzz.

I've already checked that (a) my blet buckle has no sharp edges and (b) my t-shirt covers it 🙂

Just a general note for the day, I’m in the caffe with a delicious latte and the cakes! Were I not diabetic I’d be on them, it’s only a 30 second stroll from the village hall, I can heartily recommend it. Cheers @jebroad I’ve got a good book.

Happy to help setting up, I’m just parked around the side facing the playing field.
