shore crew/taxi driver needed sunday 25th august at Nationals
« on: August 14, 2013, 09:07:19 AM »
Hello,

Im at a loose end for the nationals, my crew is going to Reading festival but is able to leave on Sunday morning and catch a train down to newton abbot, the train arrives at 11:47.

The problem is getting her from newton abbot to babbacombe, is there someone, or do you know someone that would be able to collect her.
Google maps says its a 7mile drive with a 20min duration, if you are willing to help please get in contact, we are able to provide petrol money/liquid refreshments.
Thanks
Jamie

Jamie,

I dont know exactly who, but fear not, someone will do it. Best thing is to get your ass down there as soon as you can and start chatting up other shore crews, my mother in law is a sucker for a smile !

Absolutely agree with El Prez. Can't comment on the mother in law bit though - although she is very lovely. Rohana will get a lift one way or another. We've got family with cars in the area too.

I think Rich Hole is able to crew for you on the Sunday. This way R can be leisurely on her arrival?

Might work on the girl in the Kidderminster chippy but I have a heart of stone...

I can't promise on her behalf but Gill is there and should be free...and she's a softie  :)

Careful Nigel,
Rich Hole looks like he may be on the verge of not coming...

PS Jamie - I can't ask Gill currently but she's back tonight

(PS to Roland - she gave him more chips than me)

Gill would be delighted to pick up Rohana...I'll lend Gill a Cherub T-shirt for identification purposes  ;)

Can't help on the Sunday crew front tho'...hopefully Rich will reconsider now I'm being nice and Rohana won't need to change into her wetsuit on the train!
