Recent tradition has been to hold it in an hotel next to a bypass, and set off the fire alarms at 3am just to annoy Helly.

It didn't annoy me as much as worrying the others who were worried about my welfare.

Anyway, that episode wasn't that recent!

My audax brain switched off around that time. I'm trying to find the ON switch again before next year.

Do you get to see surprising AUKs emerging from bedrooms which are not actually theirs?

I hear it is rife.

I've heard that. Somewhere I have a picture of [NAME REDACTED] exiting the Ladies, at some hotel next to a bypass.

Remember that in Stirling the rule is shirts out and jerseys tucked in. 

Good luck.

Can't even get a response from the current website at the moment!

Any of my DIYers watching - I've been working my way through August rides so you can put your RRTY demons to bed, but I'm unable to validate anything with the main site offline. Bear with me!

Well, something didn't work quite right for me. I got:-

"

As you may have seen in the statement that ...

Looks like they missed the "Oh" from the start of the line.
"Yes please" said Squirrel "biscuits are our favourite things."

tl;dr: They're plowing ahead with Phase 2 with the same contractor and putting up prices, mostly with immediate effect.

The minutes suggest the only alternative that was considered is appointing a different contractor to do the same work (i.e. build a brand new bespoke system from scratch at full market rates), which is... not something anyone suggested?
