Wish you well for the future Jim, we never had time to talk etc but I admired the fact that you took on that huge challenge at P1. Thanks for your valuable support during the RB08. Can't come to your bash Thursday but hope to meet up with you one day for a chat!

Profits, what profits? the tiny amount that was left after the RB08 will shortly be gone by having to pay CERTAIN COMPETITORS who are suing me but that, as they say, is another story!! Great sport this isn't it, you meet such charming people.

Sorry Mike I was taking the P. I don't suppose there was any and it's not my business any way. I knew my entry fee and it was my choice to pay it and we were very happy.

If you are being sued then that may aswell be the final nail in the coffin. Why would anyone wish to organise any event with that risk.

Heard a rumour someone was sueing Mike, I hoped it wasn't true.
What a nightmare.

As you say Jim Arrivederci, and all the best in future ventures, looks like if some of the Americans had their way you would be doing more of the same on their side of the pond ...

Good luck

As you can imagine I can't say right now. I would rather that this is discussed later on another thread as it's not fair to Jim and his fairwell notice.
