2008 1 Week GB - need to change the date
« on: March 25, 2008, 01:13:29 am »
OK, sorry to have to do this, but circumstances have been altered.  The 4th annual 1 week Group Build was scheduled for the 9th to 17th August, but Mrs Nev has just gone and arranged for us to go on holiday that week with her parents  :banghead: 

Because of the vagaries of my shift patterns that leaves the above 2 dates as the nearest alternatives - please select your preffered, and with the approval of Comrade Anatoly we will move it to the most popular.
Cheers.

I like the July date, actually preferring it to August.  In August-Sept we're always pretty busy with the kids getting back to school etc., whereas it's always nice to find an excuse to spend a week holed up in the air conditioning in July here in the south!

So I got that going for me...which is nice....

July works better for me too as I scheduled a couple of vacation days around the 4th. I'd already scheduled a couple of days off at the end of August thinking that was the traditional time for the Annual 1 Week Group Build (U.K. Bank holiday/U.S. Labor Day).  :banghead:

July 4th is a public holiday in the US, yes?  I think that would probly be best for our stateside members.

In other news, I thought I had a 1/72 Revell Typhoon F.1 in the stash - for this GB.  But now I can't find it.  Maybe I didn't buy it after all?  :banghead:

Actually, with July 4th falling on a Friday, I'd say that's ripe for either the end or the beginning of mid summer vacations (at least it will be mine!).  I'd go for September, when the weather's turning, and I'd be more prone to staying inside.

Comrade Anatoly, the time to execute the Plan Orange is almost upon.  Please could you fulfill your patriotic duty to the Motherland and set up the appropriate forum.
