Would dearly love to make this one, and thanks for all the Ponds Forge crew coming to Soulsville on Friday, it wouldn't have been the same without you all. Hope you enjoyed it.

I'm dying to hear Steve in action, so full reports please.

Rich & I will be down in the new year, that's if you'll have us!!!!!

Have a blinder,

Jamie :thumbsup:

Gutted can't make this. For those of you who've never been, can't recommend this one highly enough - absolutely top notch venue with one of the best sprung dancefloors I've seen in ages. Brilliant music, atmosphere and beer :thumbsup: and run by Mark E and Errol - 2 smashing and fun blokes and with Steve Mannion also guesting, looks like it'll be a cracker! Mark E also claims he can play pool, so the Soulsville v Ponds Forge pool extravaganza/drinking session will be arranged shortly! Have a great night guys :thumbsup: and sorry once again I can't make it this month.

Hi pornstar :thumbsup: , last month was a surprise for Brett, but this month I genuinely can't make it due to works xmas party - I know where i'd rather be but can't really swerve the works do. Will be there in spirit though! Great pics by the way from friday and lovely to see you both as usual.

See you soon and give Mark E a crunchie for me when you go to Ponds Forge... :thumbsup:

Humbled by your "big up" on this Rich :D ....

Must admit (BIG SMILE APPEARS ON FACE).... loads of peeps always comment on the dance floor and the fact that if "no talc on floor" (tis allowed) it doesn't effect it :D .... and for a city centre venue "the price is right" at the bar :D ....

Re: Works do's.... never commit to them myself Rich.... just say I'll get if nowt else happening cool.gif ....

Re: Pool.... this has "GOT" to happen mate.... told you/showed you at New Century allniter last month there was a "fair wedge" waiting from me on this.... never happened then.... can't see it happening now or soon :D:thumbsup: ....

Respect :thumbsup: ....

Hey Mr Bicknell that is a challenge, seriously thinking of getting to the Ducie all-dayer (Jan) for an 11 am start, fancy some of that "Big Daddy" :D . Think Little Stevie had better put me on early or it could be an evening where i have to attach a "Bell" with "Indian Hemp" around my neck, just as an early warning before i collapse into a "Catatonic" state!............. thumbsup.gif

Hi Mark hope you have a good one on 10th, nice to meet you at Wilton, enjoyed the chat, especially about Clifton Hall,

Was going to ask if BladeforLife was an old Clifton Hall dj but think thats been answered somewhere else! All you need is to find the Preston St Dancers and you could have a full on revival! :D

I wont join in the banter on your football team as its too easy a target at the moment, all will say is you will be glad all the Hull fans that used to go to soul dos seems to have dissapeared!! :lol:

Cheers

Hi Jock....

Yeh.... sure was good chatting about the Clifton Hall days.... BLADEFORLIFE is Steve Mannion, one of the residents there....

Preston Street Dancers.... now that would be something :D ....

Re footy :D .... not a good word for me after last night.... being honest.... we were shite.... jeckyll and hyde compared to last few weeks.... still, it's always nice when your 10 yr old lad is still innocent enough to not be "pissed off" about it.... in fact he got 2 free tickets via school to go again on Saturday and remains optomistic that that will be a better result.... youth eh :D ....

Catch you out and about sometime :D ....

i am afraid you may have to do without me this Friday. Broken my collar bone in a car crash this morning. What makes it more interesting is that it wasnt my fault, it was the other car - A COP CAR!

Police have accepted blame, said goodbye to my classic Austin and back home in agony!

What makes it worst is that i can't type left-handed so it took me nearly an hour to type this.

Sorry to hear that Shane.... and you were just telling us how you wanted to join the "allegro owner's club" as well :D:D:D:D ....

Seriously.... broke my collar bone a "good" few years back.... worst part was only being able to have a sling on and being told by the "docs".... try not to move it or knock it.... easier said than done mate....

A few of these :D:D:D:lol: should "kill" the pain :D ....

Steve.... your such a kindhearted "piglet" :lol: ....

Seriously.... Shane "knows" he can count on his "kin folk" from the Steel City to sort him out :D ....

P.S. I suppose this means when I set up for the night I don't have to "get out" Shane's "midi hi-fi thingy" for peeps to listen to his tunes for sale :D:D .... more time for "me" :D:D ....

P.P.S. Need a lift anywhere over next month Shane.... no doubt myself, Steve, pikeys dog (keeping "real id" quiet), etc., will sort you out :D ....

P.P.P.S. Any new "soul sourcer's" manage to get down to PF.... hunt me and others out to say hello :ok: ....

Spoke to Mr Higgins yesterday, and have offered to take him to Ponds Forge from his front door (which is miles from my home address!) and push him in a "Steel Wheel Barrow" to the Vault Of Soul, then get Mark E and a few others to plonk him in a comfortable chair and we will then spoon feed him Guinness :)

ONE TIME OFFER

Must be wacko.gif ....

Being as well it's Christmas (well nearly) I've decided that as a "thank you" to the SS's who will be in attendance, and for their past support, the first drink's are on me :D .... can hear Brett, ShaneH, Pikeys Dog, billytheboot, etc., saying "about time" after 4+ yrs :D ....

That and the fact that the "mrs" has put a "christmas curfew" on record buys so I will actually be able to afford it :) ....

If I don't see you first then come find me :D ....

Also on offer, following phone calls for tables, will be the usual sales boxes, memorabilia and clothing :D ....
