In reply to Jim Walton: I was at the aftrnoon gig which i agree was good value, although a little rushed. A mate was at the evening do and was very dissapointed and overpriced at £35. I was also at the launch of Letters from Everest by George Lowe and Hugh Lewis jones, at sotherans on the tuesday evening. i met venables, bonington, Scott , jamling tenzing, peter hillary Jan Morris and others and was a very laid back event. Free with wine and nibbles. Looking for ward to Doug Scott's November event. I have been to every one. Very well organised and run and worth every penny.
