Thank you for this notification.  It allows time for me to have the tuxedo cleaned, brush down the pith helmet , reassemble the opera glasses and unblock the snorkel. All of these actions may be necessary after last years performance.

I believe popcorn is banned after zenrat's efforts last year? :unsure:

I'm not sure Captain Canada's pet moose is ever going to recover! :o

Is it a “pet” or a “companion animal”?   Just wondering.

Look, if someone with as little impulse control as me has his drinks spiked before being tempted with an industrial sized microwave and a corn fed moose then the outcome is never going to be pretty.
Just make sure this year that Weaver and his home made mushroom brandy are not allowed anywhere near the punch bowl.

24th Feb is also Naked Sunday so i'll have to make a booking to get my leg hairs permed before the show.

Now you mention it, it could be either ... or both. ;)

Nah, nah, laddie.  Not since they introduced quarantine regulations for them.  They pined for me the last time I took them to the old country.   However yer must watch out for me Sporrans!  They're feral, Antipodean descendants of the Scottish variety and quite vicious if roused.  Being near to me cobblers, I have to watch out!

I'm sure that  "...wee, sleekit, cowran timorous beasties..." will be acceptable if kept under close control.     


 Given that it was the celebratory night of one of Scotland's great poets last night, I wonder how many inebriate verse declaiming Caledonians will have been led away by the blokes in white coats to the SERIOUS BURNS UNIT.

Hi all,

Apologies for the delay in getting back to you with an update/timetable of events, my time has been taken up with working on my 1/1 scale F-4J Phantom project, but thats another story!  :wacko:

So here`s the run down,

Polls will be up and running on Sunday 3rd February from approx 10pm GMT.

They will then be closed on Sunday 17th February at approx 10pm GMT.

The Awards show will then take place on Sunday 24th February at approx 9pm GMT just before that cheap knock off Oscars event starts.

Any questions, let me know.
