Filled in the questionnaire today.
Is there any reason why we cannot send the link to people in our address books?
Would only take a few minutes and might make a difference to the number of replies.
And I'm on my knees looking for the answer, are we Human or are we Dancer.

Send the link to everyone - the more voices the better. Well, so long as they're with us.

Spreading the word throughout this Country and even wider will have an impact on the LDNP. The area is of National and International interest (as is K7).

The public meeting appears to be intended to allow those attending (from the locality and further away) to learn more about the need for a bye law change and to express their views to representatives of the LDNP. I would not expect there to be any form of voting as the on line poll should be the place for that. I would hope that hard copies of the questionnaire will be available for those not used to the internet & websites.

The Bluebird Project Operations have produced an 'information sheet' which will back up what is said at the meeting - assuming democracy allows us to speak or answer questions.

It would be good to meet forum members if they attend. I will be the grey haired person standing alongside a near hairless Geordie engineer.

Could the bye law be got round by inventing a water speed record with a 'clause' - say 'the world waterspeed record for 40+ year old craft'?
