AOB (any old bollox)

Richard has a new car

Keith has a very low golf handicap but Lynn has sent him back out to work

Ian provided the initial answers. I believe KZW

Paddyís garage is in the way.

This last item received much attention, so much so that the situation was such

There will be no car rally, however we are going to shorten Paddyís garage !!!

We are

We had to stop the 3 Engineeroís from doing it Sunday night.

A feasibility study has been carried out by the Golf professional easing himself back into work with a low key project assessment and we will shorten Padís garage.

The reason why

Paddy bought a house with a garage in the wrong place, I mean it faces the wrong way for starters !!!

This is a garage facing the right way !!!!! attached to Padís house



And this is Padís house with the garage facing the wrong way.

You see the problem canít open the doors and if he could, heíd just drive straight into the side of the house !!!!

 So Pad wants this sorted and the FMCC will undertake it.

 Mr Lattimer  said short job, knock it out in the morning.

 I am taking bets for the duration of this task

 Under1 hour                                                 500-1

1 hour to 3 hours                                           20/1

3 hours to 5 hours                                           5/1

Over 5 hours                                                  2/1

Mr Rowley is providing beer, this went down well with the non-technical members present.

So some how we have all been talked into moving Padís garage. Pad to arrange times and light refreshment see you there !!!


No skittles, no talk of car rally, no subs paid as Al wasnít their to collect them in person, he even tried to mug me outside a cash point in Ickenham one Saturday. Our cash is in good hands, bad knees but good hands. Next meeting 02 September The Tickenham.
