Yo!  I'm hoping to be there too...  Life has been stupidly busy so quite hard to plan...

I'll bring whatever demo gear is left over from the month before (Manchester Bass Show), so will definitely have my Casa rig, probably the new Vintage D2 head (which I am thinking of selling the Casa to buy...  its that good!), and I'll try and bring Markbass instruments and some packs of the new Markbass strings to give away...

So what do people want bass wise when not eating spuds.

Home-brewed stuff looks interesting!

Its looking like another great turn out.

 

I've shared a room with you when we went to the London Bass Show a few years back - I certainly won't be anywhere near the vicinity when you have a turn out!

For anyone wondering whether they should bother, I'd just say that this is a very friendly and good-humoured get-together, extremely well organised, with a wide range of interesting gear on show, and some fabulous, home-cooked food.

Don't hesitate!

And any of you with a plant based dietary preference would have been delighted with the grub the year I went - so never fear. 

I have booked myself out that day, no gigs - just bass, good company and good scram.

I may be able to be in South Wales that weekend; is anyone playing a gig nearby on the 4th or 5th to make a mini-break of it?

How do I manage to keep missing these posts up until just some weeks left to the meeting?! Glad I always book it in the calendar 1 year in advance!! 😃

I'll be there of course (Corona allowing for it)! @scrumpymike can I please have the payment details?

I'll bring:

Basses: Fender Elite Jazz, Status Empathy 5 and PRS SE Kestrel

Combos Markbass CMD 151P, SWR LA15, GK MB112-ii and GK MB212-ii (the last three are for sale so they may be missing from the bash). And yeah, I'm fighting the combo addiction...

Helix LT & IEMs

See you all there!

CORONAVIRUS

Just thought I'd better open up a 'C' debate re the Bash.  Clearly we are all desperately keen to have one (Bash not virus) on April 5th but my current feeling is that postponement may be the sensible option.  What do you all think??  In any event, I'll have to make a final decision by the end of next week latest and post accordingly.  As you will realise, we'll have to avoid a situation where we decide to go ahead but nobody turns up!!

Personally I think postponement is the best option, this is honestly not something to be taken lightly

It provides clarity early

I was dismissive towards the Corona thing initially, but reading the sensible stuff (rather than the media shitstorm) I’m inclined to agree with postponement.  Sorry.

I agree to contribution to offset any loss that may have happened.

I am basing my view not just from media, but working in healthcare

Future gazing is notoriously inaccurate but I'd have thought the way things are going would seem to point to a postponement?

I think by the end of next week it will be apparent how things are going and the answer will be more obvious. If we are truly only 2 weeks behind Italy, then it seems unlikely it will be able to continue, but if for some reason we aren't - who knows.

Goes without saying that I am perfectly happy to help with any loss that might happen

There are many factors as to why we may or may not behave like Italy, and I get the point about future gazing, but even before lockdowns, isolation etc.

The question has to be asked, what can be done to minimise any form of spread when there is not an essential event. Point in case, the idiocy of Cheltenham races either going ahead or being attended

I am out of the loop entirely as I never watch, read or listen to the news. Just asked my landlady about it and she heard its only people at specific risk need worry.

There are people more at risk than others but those not at risk potentially become ‘super spreaders’ as in they don’t feel I’ll still all or only have very mild symptoms so carry on behaving as normal thus spreading the virus about.
