Had a lot of fun with these as the first time around and were well matched if I recall. Might look into a some bhp bumps for extra hoonage.

Can anyone make this wednesday or does next week suit better?

Shez, would like you to make it if possible as it wouldn't be the same without your smoke pixelating my screen.

Shall we push it back to Monday 3rd?

Unless shez confirms otherwise, he'll be hosting tonight so please make sure you have andyshez on your friends list.

Unfortunately I can't make tonight as I have to see a friend off before he returns to South Africa for a few years. True to form, he deemed 4 hours notice sensible...

In any case, you'll be in Shez's capabale hands.

Pappaclart, what is your PSN ID? Please can you post it on here and add a few of the regulars so that you can join on the night?


happy hooning one and all!

If so I'll be on at 8.30
