    In recognition of Nick and Tom heading down to the 13th Century for the weekend of Sat 27th/ Sun 28th October I thought I may steal Lasers title for one year only. Nick and Tom have claimed the 2 single beds in the West Wing of Manea Towers. Francis and Claire will be occupying the Bridal sweet double bed in the East Wing, as befits their status in the Capri World. As many of you know Manea Towers is situated in the rolling acres of East Anglia, so plenty of room for anybody wishing to pitch a tent overnight. We did have an erection competition a few years ago, but neither Rambo or Simon could get it up. The lower floors of the Towers is carpeted in Shag Pile, so bring a sleeping bag and snuggle down amongst the Shag. I would love to fill West Field Road with Capris as we used to several years ago. There is ample parking here and also parking will be available next door and across the road, so no problems there. I do realise that some CP'ers no longer have Capris, but treat it like Santa Pod, run what you brung, even Vauxhalls!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! If you have been here before, please come again, if you have never been here before come along for a brilliant night of fun, frolics and general silliness. See you there. Finn.

    Would it be possible for all those contemplating to attend at Manea to let me know please. Need a rough idea for sleeping arrangements, camping, beer purchasing and a small bottle of Chinzano for the Ladies. Finn.

    Unfortunately due to me treating Clare to her birthday Celebration and a last minute surprise weekend away we are terribly sorry but I now have to work this weekend to make up for a wild weekend away last weekend it was a milestone which she took full advantage of !
