Do you know what i really like about this Bake-Off more than anything else is it contain Wigwam and Audio Abattoir members as well as HFS. So does any AoS member have the guts to defy Marco and ask to attend, then we have a full house.

Rufford is full, lots in Southport. Loads and loads in Blackpool from £10 per night :shock: don't fancy that though.

Hi Andy,
plenty of room!
But my TT only has an MM cartridge on it...... Rega Super Bias



I'd be interested in hearing the Integrated amp, especially if it has a pre-out...

Quite a few of us are on AOS as well as Wam/AA and here - there will definitely be a mix! So no fighting :)


I'd probably avoid the £10 rooms in blackpool myself....
There is a premier inn at bamber bridge as well. or an Ibis at Walton Summit i think it is, an another Ibis at fulwood. If you feel fancy there is a Marriot at fulwood, which might not be too daft on a saturday night depending on xmas parties etc.

where are you coming from? its easy to get to chorley m61 from the M6, southbound it has a dedicated junction and northbound you just cut the corner using the m65 but its all clearly posted. Chorley is about 15-20 mins from mine.

I will pm everyone how to get here nearer the time. Its not hard but some satnavs will take you to a field :D

Hi Andy - apologies I don't remember you, but then I've had quite a few people here over the years ! And not everyone uses their real names which doesn't help

The road I'm on is generally clear of cars so as long as people all park on my side and leave driveways clear we should be fine - I'll move our cars out of the way so we can get 2 on the drive, one across it and go from there....
