Re: Donald Campbell's restored Bluebird in museum home row

Word on the street is that the BEWG has been disbanded and is no more!

If they hope to get the boat on Coniston Water in 2020 it's now going to require superhuman effort from someone.

Re: Donald Campbell's restored Bluebird in museum home row

We never demanded anything. The deal was always that we took the wreckage away and added that which was missing by our own endeavour. The project has been entirely volunteer lead and staffed. In point of fact, donations accounted for a very small part of our income stream for many years, though that...

Re: Donald Campbell's restored Bluebird in museum home row

Cheers, Renegadenemo. I'm not sparring, though. And I have no idea how this will ultimately play out between yourselves and the trustees. You're very welcome and please spar as much as you like, just let's all be friendly adversaries. All we want is for everyone concerned to get the biggest slice o...

Re: Donald Campbell's restored Bluebird in museum home row

There were two agreements at the same time. One that the museum was gifted the wreckage and only the wreckage and another to ensure that only the BBP completed the rebuild, the only caveat to that being that we were allowed to engage such specialist sub-contractors as we saw fit. The second saying t...

Re: Donald Campbell's restored Bluebird in museum home row

Hey, Jett, welcome back. It's all grownup in here at the moment and long may it continue. We enjoy a bit of sparring and a good debate so let's keep it interesting and informed and we'll all enjoy it.

Re: Donald Campbell's restored Bluebird in museum home row

If the museum trustees had any business sense, they would see that the proposal to take Bluebird out for three months of the year for running at various locations around the world is a heaven sent opportunity to raise awareness of the boat and their museum. Well you know that, and we know that and,...

Re: Donald Campbell's restored Bluebird in museum home row

Are we all a bit calmer today? I was rubbing down blue paint yesterday evening when everyone was getting excited so I wasn't going to get my phone covered in blue dust to join in. Glad I didn't! Just a few more days and we'll let everyone know what the plan is for this year. It's only fair that, hav...
