Here's a wee update from the Office on the Saturday night party situation...

We’ll dance Saturday night away with a Ceilidh Band and some rather special ceremony. After last year’s fun filled event when you showed you knew how to ‘get ahead in a hat’…. we thought we could go one step further……The theme for this year’s party is ‘WWW’- Witches, Warlocks and Wizards…. So, dust off that purple cloak, polish your broomstick, tickle your warts….. and let your imagination run riot! There’s a competition for the best male and female outfits... and something special for the most outrageous costume.

For those among you who are party poopers…. we’ll be showing a ‘new age’ film comedy starring George Clooney, Ewan McGregor and Jeff Bridges. In ‘The Men Who Stare At Goats’ the US army teaches recruits to use their Psi skills. Hilarious- and even better when you know as we do, that this stuff really works! Sadly the boys can’t be with us in person to share in the party……

I just got back after a short break in Glasto. We had a great Conference!

I've uploaded my photos onto my PC - most have come out well. One or two absolute classics!

If anyone has any photos of the 2010 Conference at Cirencester, please send them in to the
BSD office. The more the merrier !
