..............that I have to say that I'm going to have to miss this
year's National at Telford.
Without going into too many details, I can't justify the expense. If I
go on Friday, I have to also forego a day's money so it's a double
financial whammy at a time when my wife is facing early retirement on
ill-health grounds. I'm also not too keen about leaving her for that
long. It's not as if the condition is terminal, but it is chronic and
unpredictable and when it's bad I want to be there for her.
That leaves you one Manglement short.
The rooms and the function room are all in place, but due to all sorts
of personal flak I've had no time to organise anything else.
So, I'm after a volunteer or two to take over from me and just sort
out the business side of things - not a difficult task and I can
provide paperwork and info - and also someone to sort out the acoustic
afternoon session. It could even be the same person.
I'm sorry I'm not going for all sorts of reasons - the first National
is the only one I've ever missed and it's a wrench, but it feels right
for me to do this.
I'm also sorry I'm pulling out of Manglement at this late juncture but
again, I have to do what I feel is the right thing.
If you can help with Manglement stuff, please email me at:
Aw *man*, that bites.
Sorry to hear of your recent troubles Steve - I totally understand why you're doing this. You'll be seriously missed at The National, and you and Mrs. Shark have my best wishes.
