Hi Bill, I asked your agents to book you as a keynote speaker for the Rotary North East District Conference to be held 12th - 14th October this year, and this has been done, but they tell me they are unable to get hold of you for certain info we need for the brochure and confirmation that you can attend. If I do not get this info by 14th June (Thursday) I will cancel their contract, which is not something I want to do, and the delegates at the conference are looking forward to hearing your story. Can you please let me and Oliver at JLA know what is happening by 13th June? Thank you Celia Leach District Governor.

Comments: I live in Australia. I was 13 at the time of his death. I remember it clearly and was very saddened by it. I recall him at Lake Eyre with his Bluebird car. He will always be remembered as as adventurous man. I just returned from a holiday in the UK and I visited his grave site, saw the plaque at Coniston by the lake and the one in Coniston. Also saw the one at Ullswater. I think restoring the Bluebird is a great tribute to a great man.

Comments: me n my dad are coming up to coniston from wolverhampton in a few days and we're trying to look for things to do, so far on the agenda we're going to explore the museum and have a look at the lake. if anyone has any other ideas for us to make it any more special for a father and son day please email me and let me know (firstname.lastname@example.org)
P.S I love the fact that people arent giving up on the legendary bluebird and i do believe that its spirit is very much alive, it was such an amazing machine. sadly it was many years before my time, but even to a 20 year old big kid the campbells are both an inspiration to me and my dad.
Long live Bluebird. Long live Campbell. Long live British Engineering.

Comments: Bill, Every photo you post is another slap in the face for the HLF (They must be getting pretty sore by now!). I wonder if they will ever have the cojones to admit they were wrong?

Comments: I hope to attend the test run on Coniston before she goes in the John Ruskin Museum, I have been fasinated by the water and land speed records by the Campbells all my life after holidaying in the lakes as a child from 1961 onwards, we were actually staying in Skelwith bridge in october 1966 ( I was 5) and I remember the excitement of all the adults around and talk of the records being set.

Comments: Just tried donating some money and after going through all the Visa gubbins got thrown at Paypal. I do have a PayPal account but I'm not a fan.
So, ok, I've been redirected and I really can't be bothered to think much so I hit the 'login' button on the PayPal page. Nothing happened. No link on that page appeared to work.
Oh well, another time.
P.S Good job by the way, been following you online for years.

Comments: Seeing that beautiful Bluebird come together sure indicates the mountains of careful prep-work you have done over the years. Like all of your countrymen, I am sincerely looking forward to seeing her fly across Conniston again! J-D Ft. Worth, TX USA
