Re: Anyone else going to pointoise this April 9th / 10th

just a thought, we have had a word with Christophe and he's putting us and Gareth side by side cos Gruffs on his own as well, why not ask Christophe if Mike could also go near us ? that way if he needs food / lavvy etc we can watch your stall ? :)
