Re: Visit to North Shields- model makers.

God I feel old. First off all this silliness and now after years of trying to keep up with the beer swilling Tyneside Massive I find out they have switched to LIGHT beer.... You horribly insensitive lot. That beer was offered as a gift from people of the SOUTH . They meant well and travelled far fr...

Re: Donald Campbell's restored Bluebird in museum home row

I'll say something, we've been extremely patient so far. We've worked damned hard and whatever anyone says the deal has always been that we'd build a boat, it would run on Coniston Water and THEN it would go into the museum. They should have been on this just as hard as we have been, knocking down e...

Re: Donald Campbell's restored Bluebird in museum home row

It's all very simple really, we have always conducted ourselves in accordance with both the 2006 agreement (which, incidentally has always had questions about its validity that have nothing to do with us) and the 2013 agreement. The museum owns what they were given, ie the wreckage and we own the re...

Re: Donald Campbell's restored Bluebird in museum home row

I have to ask, are you never going to give K7 back to the Ruskin unless you get a contract of your choice signed. Are you prepared to keep it for how many years you deem appropriate. Lost count of how many times we've explained this. The boat can go in the museum soon as the 2013 agreement is fine ...

Re: Donald Campbell's restored Bluebird in museum home row

those who want to see it run could be out of pocket. You mean like what happened to people who booked accommodation in Coniston this year? The public wants to see K7 run and we are prepared to provide that opportunity. Alternatively, we just say we're not doing it and in so doing we deny everyone t...

Re: Donald Campbell's restored Bluebird in museum home row

Bill are you saying that the Ruskin Trustees have agreed to K7 running on Bute in 2019 or is it a decision you have taken unilaterally? I am sure many folk will want to be sure holiday arrangements plane flights etc will not be wasted? There is now a much fuller understanding of where everyone stan...

Re: Visit to North Shields- model makers.

That tea was Bob on Gordon, it definitely got my seal of approval[.] Not sure you should have let everyone know you’re a closet ginger nut lover though lol Cheers Wayne First our Coniston gig is cancelled, then we have a world of silliness to wade through and now there's a ginger biscuit revolt tak...

Re: Donald Campbell's restored Bluebird in museum home row

I have never seen any evidence that DC stated that boat and Donald say together. If that was the case, why did the RN spend 2 weeks with the full backing of both the Campbell Family and Leo Villa attempting to recover his body after the tragedy. It makes no sense. This is an anecdote that I believe...

Re: Donald Campbell's restored Bluebird in museum home row

Hi Bill has the silence been deafening from the museum or is there any news?
You are not allowed to ask too many questions and there will be more to follow but keep some time free end of July - we're going back to Bute. we'll issue a formal statement in due course.
