Funny you say that, we were discussing that last night.
I would love to do it, but wouldn't want to be away from the family for so long, so soon. Raising the money, wouldn't be a problem.
We wondered about what they might do in 2008, and possibly try that instead.

Why don't you give it a go??

Cheers

Alistair.

I have to admit that both myself and SWMBO are thinking about it . We are not sure we could get enough backing though .

Truly Excellent and well done to all the sponsors and prizewinners.

Not having won a single thing, Claymore is being very strong and manly about it all but is now off for a wee sob.

Thanks Alistairr , I may well hold you to that , but we tend to avoid any lengthy seperations , so we would both have to raise enough sponsorship . As you say , a lot of money , but we'll see .

Yes, that was one of our worries, Kirsty did mention that it would be great to do something like that in years to come, when Callums big enough to join us.

GO FOR IT!! I'll give you £50 each!

Cheers

I'm glad you can see my reasoning , and very much appreciate the offer . If we could raise the sponsorship money we would do it , but as you say it's a lot .
And are you sure you would sponsor both of us ? , she doesn't even LIKE the forum . In fact , she thinks I'm nuts for being on here

Hi Pauline , the final vote for the piggy was . blow it up , but as pointed out , the voters may not have had shares in it , so I'm still stuck with the damn thing staring at me /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif , but as majority shareholder , I may have to find an alternative means of disposal /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif , why ? , did you want it ?

Not an offer many would refuse /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif , however , if you want it , PM your address and it'll be sent . At least that would mean I can transfer the majority shares ( and troubles) , but are you sure Mr B wants this anywhere near him /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

Not sure we shareholders can allow this. Surely your niece will be distraught? /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif
