someone is going to attempt to block BB's return and run by way of high court appeal.
Oh no!

I got a text earlier saying, 'possible type-III activity on forum'.

I panicked initially, fearing the re-emergence of the dreaded, Bridget Jones of the 'Group Opposed to the Running of K7... or whatever stupid long-winded name they dreamt up in order to deliver a not so anonymous, thirty-thousand-word trilogy to the park authority whilst leaving their names and addresses in the file properties of the document. But then it emerged that the whistle-blower this time was none other that other cartoon villain, the man with the magic shovel.
Yet to the best of my knowledge they've never been associates and such an unlikely collaboration would be like Lord Sugar going into business with the bloke who runs the hot dog van at the match so I'm not buying it.

So... High Court appeal, eh? Appeal against what, exactly? have I missed an action that's climbed all the way to the supreme courts without me being invited to defend our scurrilous scheme? Or has the British judicial system altered to the point where you can nip down to the Strand, bash on the door and say, 'Hey, Judgie, I'm a bit miffed with what this hydroplane lot are wanting to do!'.

I'd say we can lower our state of readiness, folks. It's only type II activity.

A "High Court Appeal"?

Anyone so opposed to the trial of Bluebird K7 could have forced the issue of the bye law to a full judicial hearing - if their case was of merit in the eyes of DEFRA or LDNPA - during the consultation. The democratic process has run its course to the point of the byelaws being (re-)enacted. That process has run for three years, so waiting until after the publication seems to be an interesting 'Type 3' shutting of the stable door.

I am sure the BBP would have been alerted to any serious legal activity because others would want us to pay the costs involved :lol: .

I am reminded of the discussions (sometimes getting a bit heated) when a stakeholder told me that the wording of the original byelaws for Coniston Water "were not correct" because Byelaw 4 had not been intended to allow such an activity as Records Week (World and National Record breaking, by a number of boats)! And that statement was being made over twenty years after those bye laws had been enacted.

If anyone is planning on stopping the trial may I suggest they wait to pay any lawyers/QC/Barrister until we publish the operations plan for them to get upset about.

Now I know why the LDNPA felt they should explain the term 'inter alia'..... ;)

I will check the lake out for you ............ but the water depth has been reducing over the years and launching has not been as easy. Is the attraction the nearby 'strip' at Las Vegas?

You'd all better get geared up for Wales if they cock this up...

I work in IT, specialising in network communications both technical implementation and project management, would be happy to be involved in any way. If you are still looking at subscirption based communications services for trials week, I would be happy to lend a hand with investigating available options, talking techy with the techy people and translating for the tin bashers (kind of used to IT translation lol).

With a passion for the lakes and an obsession in all things K7 I'd be honoured to help out in anyway possible.

Probably the final time to bring this thread on to page 1

As the Ops team are starting to work on the Trial plan if you have not yet offered to assist on this thread or by PM then please do so.

Do not repeat an offer already made please.

I expect that there may be BBP contact during the first four months of 2012, but do not hold me to that!
