A couple of things to report from the CO72 'bunker'. Firstly it is with trepidation and a touch of sadness , we have to announce that this....the 10th anniversary 20th Oct 2018 will be the FINAL CO72.....in its current guise
The three of us have decided to draw the curtains on what has been a FANTASTIC 10 years. It's been a difficult decision...but from where we started at the Ryan Hall Tunstall .
Us 3 musketeers have had an absolute ball in putting this together each year. It's been difficult promoting from 3 different locations in the UK over this period BUT make no mistake we've loved every minute of it. We couldn't have done this without the incredible support from ALL the CO72 enthusiasts over the years.
There have been times when 'fate' intervened and tried its best to 'f**k us up...but it only made us more determined. So determined in fact that being a part of CO72 .....you've managed to raise well over £30.000 towards the charities.
It really has been a labour of love and something that we wouldn't change for the world. Each year we have been overwhelmed with well wishers and enthusiasts 'willing' CO72 onwards and upwards
Highlights are TOO many to mention...but WHAT a journey, The ceiling falling in @ Ryan Hall halfway through Malcs Set, Nogger relieving himself in a milk bottle and it overflowing, Alan Days lift leaving him there and we had to have a whip round to put him up in a Hotel, Julian Bentley so pissed up he couldn't cue his records in nor talk, Swish thinking the speed control for the decks was the Volume control, Queen of fools by Pinky and Perky was brilliant, Nuns outside? The TA centre going to the Offey to buy more tinnies THREE TIMES. Weddings and Beef Burger Vans... we even had our own CO72 Mascot who like all you ole buggers managed to get there somehow each year
We've lost a few along the way who will/are sadly missed and this has helped drive us on to continue for 10 glorious years. Its almost become a little club, with new 'members' joining each year to see what these 'old farts' at CO72 are doing
We REALLY want to thank you ALL ...you've made 3 old men...even older lol !!
So this is the LAST one this year...here at this new venue In Stoke on Trent (its spiritual home of course).....
Ok secondly whilst we are laying to rest the 'Old Girl' that is CO72..we shall continue in a very very similar vein....that is a pure annual charity event..but under different promoters.. Jez will continue on..at the helm of this new venture.. ably assisted with some local 'ne'er do well's' !!
News of that later in the year....BUT in the meantime please try and attend this last CO72.....where us 3 musketeers will make fools of ourselves one more time ..!!'
So just ONE more time join us for the 2018 CO72 10th anniversary @ Florence Sports and Social Club in S-o-T on Oct 20th
Running from 1pm through till 12.01am
