31st March 2018 (One Day Only)

Ok, we had a boat race, of sorts on 30 April 2016 at Coate Water in Swindon, with friends in a race to build and sail their own boats. This year we are doing a rerun of that event. We are totally amateurs at this, and there are few if any rules for the event, other than turn up with an RC boat of some description.

If you happen to be around and would like to join in, be my guest.

Not far for me to travel and I should be able to get along there.

It's about time I showed my face at the water again !

Can you confirm the date is the 30th April which is a Friday, also the time, as if in the morning and on the 30th I have a previous appointment and cannot make the morning, a bitter blow as Coate Water is my sailing venue.

Having read this assortment of messages my questions are ......

1 Is this a rerun of the 2016 event at Coate Water to be held at the same venue ?

2 Is it definitely to take place on March 31st ?

3 Will there be cheerleaders ?

Sorry looked at March 30th not April the 30th anyway it is immaterial as I have just seen the date as 31st March on the original post on this thread which is a Saturday which is great as I should be free, and I believe I am correct at saying this is at Tadpole lake just North of Swindon, even closer to me.
