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

I still say wait and see what they say rather than speculate but it isn’t good at all as it stands. I know nothing more than anyone else. However, whilst the BBP may well 'wait and see … rather than speculate', may I suggest that the various organisations within Coniston get together and start plan...

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

Richie, just hit the link I posted a page back and the statement from Steve Tatlock is there in and amongst the FAQs. I do not know what 'planning' there has been behind the scenes of the BEWG as the decision was theirs to reveal.

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

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

Can't comment on Mark-F except to confirm that he did request that his account be deactivated Before he left Mark-F and I exchanged messages. His main concern was the style of 'debate' that the BBP crew members use. Whilst I could not entirely agree with him, nor him with me, we parted cordially.

Being deluded has prevented me from presenting answers to quotes as clearly as I would have liked. In case anyone has forgotten why operating the boat on Coniston Water is an important opportunity for Coniston and the National Park area as a whole, then please review the granting of the Bye Law.
