Still really hardly debating this. 1hr 40 mins drive for me from Northampton which is a fair haul.
Ill stay where I am on the list for now & decide.

As well as the 4 hours of nets, Merlin bowling machine, willow admiring and stroking, there is likely to be the most awesome choc brownies, possibly some flapjacks, bananas, plus if we are really lucky some samosas!! Plus there is the experience of dealing with the nature-defying swing bowling of Fattus!
And if that's not enough, you have enough willow geek chat to last you until 2018 plus there is a local pub some of us go to after which serves a very decent burger!!

I'm thinking of driving from Holland for this. I have some bats for Tom to refurb so why not drop them off?

I am obviously a yes - and you are all my prey!  (unless I am batting, then I am your bunny)

It will work out at no more than 15 each for nets! So that has to be cheaper than sending a bag via courier! Or around the same! You know it makes sense Rodney!

Right, I'm getting up for this now - I've just realised I've batted 3 times this season, so I think I might need a little time on the old bowling machine to remember which end of the stick to hold! any non-bowlers up for some feeding?

Does anyone actually know how to work the Merlin Machine - it's not going to fly out backwards or something?
