Last Minute Offer

Hi Everyone.

A very good friend of mine has bought tickets to fly to the Isle of Man to watch the TT Senior race on Friday the 1Oth of June.


The problem is, he completely forgot that Friday is in fact his wedding day. This is because he bought the tickets several months ago, long before the wedding date was set.







He has asked me to post this on his behalf to see if anyone else
is interested in getting married?

Please PM with offers.

Haha, glad your friend has got his priorities right!

However, before I pm an offer for his fiancée could you please post a picture!

Re: Last Minute Offer

10th June is my wedding anniversary so I can't (daren't ) help.

It's also Prince Philip's birthday so I guess that rules him out too.

It's the day before my wife's birthday and the first day of our local's beer festival.

Thinking about it, is there really a problem? Surely it's just a matter of the venue for the wedding?

I really cannot think of anywhere better than St Ninian's near to the starting grid in Douglas, St Michael's in Kirk Michael, St Mary's in Ballaugh, St Stephen's on the Sulby Straight, St Paul's in Ramsey; all in clockwise order.

Or there's the bridge across the TT course at the Bungalow. Just don't drop the rings on any of the front runners.
