Although I have a commitment on the evening I might be able to make it to this bake off. I'll only be able to confirm closer to the day.

I have a Beresford Caiman that I could bring.

I have just had some nice-surprise news. My eldest son, who has been travelling around the world, is going to spend a few days with me at Easter.

It does mean that I will have to put the bake-off back.

I will PM attendees...and post a new date, asap.

You could add a little time on the end and combine it with interconnect cables. Invite to Bigboy and watch him try to ignore you.

In fairness to Oliver, he has already contacted me to say that he would like to attend...

I will believe it when I see it. Fireybum will talk him out of it.

He has come back here to reply to posts regarding his interconnects and he has contacted me by PM to express interest in my bake-offs. He's not doing the best job of backing out ;)

I aim to do 3 bake-offs a year, so there will be other opportunities if this one doesn't work for him.

Paul, I'm sure it will be an enjoyable weekend with your son.

I've replied to your PM. It looks like the proposed dates rule me out again due to work if those are all that are available. I've given some that I could make just in case there's any flexibility.
