So North, East, South, West and City Centre
but i think the one in the east (dalmarnock) has fallen through as they're looking for a new site.
Do you know what day(s) this falls on?

Cheers James. Will be in a group, and wrangling children and festival noobs so may be a bit difficult for me to get away, but will try and remember to message you on the Friday in case we can meet up.
Sorry, just realised I was being dumb, didn't read your post properly. Is just me and my wife today, so can easily meet up. Think rimmer is also going?

dropped you a message on FB - we will be to the left of the soundboard i think... heading up there for about 3 - 3.30 i think. Hopefully see you both there!

just watching some old favourite tracks on youtube from the early 90s - where does the time go and how was that 20 years ago because it seems like about 5 minutes :?

Morning, just been catching up on this thread. Good to see all the chat about sleeves, will be looking for some further down the line. Next noob-ish question, once in the sleeve what's the best way to store/keep them flat? Cheers.

Or between two pieces of acid free foam core with bulldog clips.

It's largely down to your budget/space. Ideally, a flat file cabinet. Whatever you use, the main thing is to make sure it's acid free (MDF is meant to be bad). Many use acid free foam core as a cheap solution, or clip frames. I had to stop using that kind of solution when I got the sleeves though, as they slide about a bitt too much. I few of us have built custom boxes out of wood/ply

yeah I thought about putting mine in the garage and even though its part of the house I still decided against it - just ended up wedging it under the bed as best I could manage.
