    Aside from coveting Y's Golden Retriever ( s), I'm not doing a presentation this year - nothing to do with the rumour that the Scottish Ambulance Service couldn't cope with the carnage following my blurb on 'safety' last year - and unfortunately I can't make it to sit and heckle Richard E . So no ties/ commercial interest etc.

    Therefore I feel free to say....

    If its anywhere close to last year, you'll be missing a great day out. Very friendly and informal, with some good dialogue back and forth. Lunch break was more like a group picnic and the hall at Strathconnon worth the trip alone. Highly recommended.

    Hat off to Y for his part in making these events happen.

    PS - there's NO TRUTH in the rumour Iain Davidson isn't presenting this year 'cos the Branch couldn't afford subtitles......
