Paul, the original idea was to use Davie's people carrier for "peep ferrying", but we appear to have added a few names since then. Can peeps (and peepesses of course...) let us know if you require transport from Glasgow to Greenock on the 21st before the end of next week (14th) and we'll arrange summat based on the numbers and arrival times. We'll also try to arrange a return journey that night, although there is a regular train service a short walk (stagger, crawl...etc)away for those who retire early... wink

Mike, We can get the Train to Greenock if neccessary. We would, however, need a lift back to Glasgow after the gig is possible.

Cheers.

A word of warning. Anyone planning to use the trains, can they check that their service is running. RMT have planned a 24 hour strike from 12 noon on the Friday, and this looks like it is going to affect several services. I am going to see if our train to Glasgow is affected, and we may need to cancel and book National Express coaches instead. We will definitely be in Glasgow this weekend though, and hopefully we can get to and from the gig.

Well, we got home at 4 this morning! Just aswell I didn't stay and talk any longer!
What can I say guys, FANTASTIC! Big well done! My ears still haven't recovered yet,lol
I know it will be a while before anybody reads this because you're all off having fun at John Foxx today but......
Shirl, great to finally catch up(ish).

Caroline, great to finally meet you, maybe we can actually have a proper conversation next time!? Have a safe journey home.

Stevie/ Exile, thanks for the drink mate, nice to meet you (sorry I called you Davey, you just look like one)

Thomas, Nice head mate! Like you said, it's nice to put a face to the name! kiss

Scott, nice to meet you too, safe journey home, maybe the missus will come next time?!

Mike, REALLY REALLY sorry I didn't get a chance to talk to you properly, would love to have had a blether with you! Nice tash! think you should keep it! wink laugh

Roy, thanks for the reassureance, I know we'll get there (eventually)

Don, I'm really sorry I got dragged away mid conversation! I wasn't being ignorant, I'll email you or give you a tinkle in the next few days ok?! You take care of you and yours!!! (hugs)

Chappie, I didn't even get a chance to say hello properly.... again I wasn't being ignorant, I'm a bit pissed off we didn't chat actually.. think there was a big hurry towards the end because of the hour and a half journey home. (John had been up since 4am and already completed a 12 hour shift before we arrived, poor bugger) hopefully next time! kiss

Pip & EG, GREAT to see you again after all this time, you seriously brightened up my evening, feel like I did nothing but laugh (you've missed you vocation in life mr standup!)

And a big shout out to DANCING HOMER, who had my sides sore with laughter, glad you enjoyed yourself mate, whoever you are!

I would just like to say, I had a little tear in my eye when you dedicated Visions in Blue to Ari... excited

How did everyone else like it? She asked, full of curiosity... laugh

Out of solidarity, I watched Ari's brilliant MONUMENT DVD that same night. When everybody arrived, they inquired. And after explaining, I also showed some UV videos... wink (Ultrawho? :rolleyes: )

This is the first time I've ever read the Monument thread. It's speaking to others in the MU chatroom that I realise I may be actually be missing something good. It seems people who go to your gigs have a great time. excited

Next time you guys do a gig down south I'll definately try my hardest to attend.
