    Over the next two evenings I will be sending PM's out containing my address and mobile number to all who have confirmed their attendance this month.

    The PM system allows sending to five people at a time so I will have a few messages to send to get to all of you.

    Please check that you have posted in this thread in October and if you have not, please confirm your attendance or you might not get told where it will be.

    If you have not received your PM by Friday please let me know.

    Closer to the day I will also be posting more details pertinent to having the day run smoothly.

    Looking forward to meeting old friends and new on Sunday.

    I wouldn’t say champagne is clever,
    But it is classic, and it is spring Doug3030's Open Shed Day 14 October 2018Doug3030's Open Shed Day 14 October 2018.

    Knowing I wouldn't stand a chance of getting in ahead of you consoles me.

    It looks like it's going to be a really good day.

    Just a few little items of shed etiquette so we all know what to expect -

    We live right at the end of a Court. As is the case in most courts this means a lot of driveways in a small area so it may not be possible for everyone to park at the front door. Please respect the neighbors' driveways. I have to live here after everyone has gone home.

    Once you have parked, come up the driveway and enter through the garage, through the open rolla-door. Do not knock on the front door - there will probably not be anyone in the house to hear you.

    Please bring your own chairs if you can. We have a limited number of spare chairs for those who may not be able to bring their own for whatever reason.

    There will be some fridge space available to put your drinks in, but it may fill up quickly. Alcohol is permitted but common sense is to prevail. If you choose to drink do not expect to play with any toys with sharp bits or spinning parts

    There is no need to dress up to visit my shed. Dress in your shed clothes or at least something comfortable that you don't mind getting dirty in if the opportunity arises. Enclosed footwear is recommended.

    Tablesaws, bandsaws, jointers, thicknessers, drill presses, milling machines, vises, forges, anvils and lathes or anything else made of steel or cast iron are not considered as suitable places to put your drink down.

    We are providing a basic barbecue lunch, Some other attendees have indicated that they are bringing other food to share. It is your choice whether to bring any food or not. I acknowledge that some people would rather make a cash donation to the running of the day and for that reason there will be a donation box put out. Contributions of food or dollars are appreciated but are entirely your own free choice and we will not be keeping score of who does or does not contribute and I trust that nobody else will either. We never truly know what someone else's circumstances are and I do not want anyone who cannot afford to contribute to feel at all uncomfortable or unwelcome, or even worse, not come at all.

    It is a condition of our lease that smoking is not permitted in the undercover areas. Common courtesy also rules out smoking around food. I respect your right to smoke, if you are so inclined, and ask you to respect other people's rights to not be forced to inhale the byproduct of your pleasure. If you wish to smoke please go into the side yard and stand in the vicinity of the clothes line, which is in a separate area from where the gathering will be. Please dispose of your butts thoughtfully. If I see smoke or flame coming from any part of your body or anything you are holding and you are not near the clothes line I will assume you are on fire and you will be extinguished in the most expedient manner available. Smoke emitted by barbecues and chainsaws will be considered as a normal function of their operation and no action will be taken against them unless they become out of control.

    Behavior of children is the responsibility of the accompanying parent.

    Above all, have fun, meet new friends, swap ideas and get inspired.
