I am happy to raise my hand to be the organiser for this prestige event depending if other members decide not to. I still have all the kit I used from last years event stored away ready for use again!

One day we'll have one of those LED scrolly things that will display the result as it is drawn live at Zone 1 HQ, wherever that is.

That has to be a nomination for Post of the Year in the 2011 Tube Awards.

As the R15 is now scheduled for the following day this would seem sensible.

I would also volunteer to be the organiser but not knowing if I can make this date until a few weeks before hand does rather prevent me from being a suitable candidate. (See R15 thread for my reasons.)

Don't you mean lorry wheelnut covers taped across with some masking tape? I always knew these wheelnut covers would come in useful for something! All the ones I used last year are still in the cloth Underground map bag they were in for the starting station draw at Shoreditch, so can be easily re-activated if required!
