    Ah, the heady days of the YABB Easter trip. Sadly missed, but you can't be young forever. Besides, I'm not sure my liver could take the abuse anymore!

    Just heard the message Frank left on my answering machine this morn, that lasted for about 10mins!
    Had to laugh!

    Was speaking to Danny from Black Dyke on Sat nite, he was going to phone up for BBb Bass but I guess he's too late now!

    Any more news on the rest of the line-up?

    Christ! Thats me getting abuse flung at me even before we've even left the country!! Dont worry Laura can translate for me, well before she starts on her turbo shandys that is...!!!

    Are you flying down Lucy? Think I'll be arriving in Heathrow just before 7pm and then getting the bus to Oxford, is everybody going to Yates' bar again before meeting the bus at Franks?

    Im going to try and get to Oxford midday / mid afternoon to sample Oxfords finest orange juice. I think a couple of others are aiming for a reasonably early start too, seems rude not to make the most of the day off :p

    I don't think so Willie, I get free rail travel. Have no idea yet what trains run though

    How much is the flight?
  15. Steve

    Steve Active Member

    Glasgow - Oxford is 6half to 7hours and edinburgh is 6 to 6half.

    There are some direct trains too guys so no pulling instruments on and off the train :tup

    I booked my return flight in mid-february, it was £70 back then, just looked up BA prices, its £87 now. Ive got at least a 2hr journey to Glasgow 1st, so flying is abit easier and can leave slightly later in the day. Theres enough travelling to do as it is and it means I can stock up on minature vodkas on the plane! ;)

    Are you bringing the popcorn to go with our vodies then Steve?!!! :biggrin:

    Dont worry I usually sit on the end and make the section look uglier, and also just in case Ive a hangover, feeling rough and need to dash off the stage quick to be sick!
