Event number 426
25th December 2017
So Christmas Day 2017 was a bit wet. Someone, DB, was heard to comment that it would keep a few away - not a bit. Amazing to see so many of you enjoying your 'fix' on Christmas morning. Soggy barcodes - if you don't have access to a laminator then please just sellotape your barcode to a bit of card, a few strips should do it. A total of 38 manual additions had to be made.
Tokens - please don't take them home, we need them every week. We lost 3 - all unknown in the results so I can only presume they had no barcode. Please bring them back if you inadvertently took them home. No need to speak to us, just drop it in the yellow bucket. We recently spent £150 on a new set and have already 'lost' a number.
