Nine years is one hell of an advanced notice for an Arrse social!

You reckon most of us will still be alive then????
I'm sure we'll be out of the sand pit by then :roll: but it will be great to see it finished.

Yes I know. Mine was an observation, on if we'd actually have anyone available to attend then. :wink:
