So there IS a continuation to twist my words. Perhaps that is because I am a confused person who is poor at expressing himself? Let me be clear - the message of my postings on this matter
<ul type="square">[*]was NOT in any way or word a criticism of the people organising the event, I know how thankless it can sometimes be when you volunteer[*]was critical of the Yacht Club restaurant with regard to a high price for an undisclosed menu, and for the principle of making you pay for guests who can't make it.[/list]
I am very glad that everybody had a great time, and that the meal in the event turned out to be perceived as good value (though I suspect that fish and chips might have gone down almost as well, given the good company). I enjoyed last year when I was able to go, and would have liked to be there this year, if only to say hello to folks I otherwise do not get a chance to see.
I referred to the tendency to slap people down when they have any criticism, constructive or otherwise - pity to see that you, Roger, have joined the unhappy few, even if you do it with a smooth pen.
This post is intented to be an expression of good humour. Any implied aggression or bad-feeling is totally due to the medium and not the messenger.
