    Folks nothing that's already been announced has changed. It'll be a great weekend, nobody has died or anything...we just won't have a hooker popping up out of a giant cake. 

    (Although,  put a few beers into the face of @modellista and anything's possible!)

    I don’t need to bring my giant cake now then?

    Sorry, I'd completely forgotten about this.

    I'll drop him an email and let him know that he's no longer required.

    Got to say guys, I’m really disappointed there’s been such a poor response to this - I appreciate people are busy and have families - but this is a great opportunity to meet some of the people who make this place what it is.

    The venue is great - everyone I’ve met on here is great in ‘real life’ - if there’s any possibility you can make it, you really should. 
    Other events have been well attended. A big factor will be the date. Many people are on holiday during August. Personally, I’d be there if I hadn’t got other commitments.

    I think it's also because there ARE so many other events. So folk will go to the ones closer to them and forget about one that is a bit further out (but which allows us Scottish warriors to attend lol).

    That's very kind @Snags ;; and I would have loved to take you up on your kind offer - but I'm now committed to some other social & domestic arrangements made by Mrs Voxman that I can't get out of. cry
    I started out with nothing..... but I've still got most of it left (Seasick Steve)

    Bear in mind also that it's a musician's forum, so Saturday night is the worst possible night for some of us!

    I'm trying to wriggle out of a gig, but it means I'm asking my bandmates to forfeit a ton each...

    To balance, I like the Saturday - I don't have to take days off work :)

    All the other jams have been on a Saturday - and all finished late enough that it would be difficult to go do a gig afterwards.

    I've been asked in private by a few people if I'm going to this.

    I'll reiterate here, I would LOVE to but I've signed up for the last 3 Jam sessions, going back to Leicester last year and missed/had to pull out of ALL of them.
    The reasons why I couldn't even make it up and the disappointment for me and those who were depending on me was horrible and it leaves me cold and very depressed.

    If I can be there and take an available space, I will do but I don't dare sign up for this, knowing my life is still fairly unpredictable and might well be for the rest of this year.

    I have no money, no car and unreliable health although that last one seems to be getting better treatment now I'm in Liverpool and there's some hope there now where before it was much worse.

    I'm sorry I can't offer more support at this stage but if I make it there I'll play on as many songs as I can and do everything I can to support the event.

    I hope that clears up my position on this and any future Jam sessions.
    I'd hate for people to think I'm quiet at the moment because I don't want to support this place.
    That couldn't be further from the truth.

    I'm quiet at the moment while I try to get my life back together and make myself and my life into something worth having here and at the Jams.
    There's no talent here, this is hard work. This is an obsession. We are all equal as human beings and you can be anything you want to be if you put in the time and the work. I'm not talented, I'm obsessed.

    @Alnico if you find you can make it, even last minute, you know where I am, and I'll personally drive over there and bundle you and your gear into my car to get you there. 

    Absolutely not intended as pressure, just giving you an option. Less than 24 hours notice is fine. 

    Take care buddy!

    Some of the older patrons at the bowling club don't have teeth... I'm told that makes a significant difference.

    It’s getting more tempting, I must say..
     so if you fancy a reissue of a guitar they never made in a colour they never used then it probably isn't too overpriced.

    Would've loved to have come to this when I saw it announced, however I'm overseas then so cannot make it. Next year I'm definitely going to make it to one of the jams/social gatherings at least if I can. I thought this would be be reet popular and subscribed quickly, I'm quite surprised it hasn't been actually. 

    Good luck with the new plans anyway and I'll look forward to seeing the vids/images and reviews of the weekend. Can't wait to get to one for real soon. 

    .....and what to my wondering eyes should appear.....      nothing.......
