When do we start on Saturday? We have trains every hour only, so would probably arrive either at 2 or 3pm.

I won't be able to make it, unfortunately - I'll be in the US for the second time this week

Have a great time, disappointed to miss it.

Sincere apologies - just got back from holiday and ran into a family issue. Regrets, regrets - I trust that the select group have a great weekend. At least the weekend weather looks good.

What is worse, I had offered to help Swissbobby to help in any way. At least he is organized!
