    Hope to see some of you guys there.

    Was just syncing the World Cup fixtures with my phones diary and realised that the night before (Thursday 19th) there is an England game on. If anyone fancies a few beers in the hotel bar in front of the TV give me a shout

    I don't know if you veterans drink with commoners, but, sport and beer - I'll be there anyway.

    Count me in - are we sure they are showing it? Do we need to book a table at a sports bar?

    When I spoke to the hotel they said they would be showing it in the bar, but happy to do sports bar if you know of a decent one Trev
  7. Sorry I will miss the BSS 2014 coming up this weekend but it looks like a great seminar with lots of good lectures. To those who will be attending, please give Tom McPoil my best since I haven't seen him for many years and I always enjoy hearing Tom lecture. He is a very smart man.

    Good luck also to my mates, Simon Spooner and Simon Bartold with their lectures at the conference. The lectures look to be very interesting.

    Wish I could be there in Manchester but I'll be lecturing in Anaheim with Benno Nigg in a few days at the Western Foot and Ankle Conference. Hopefully I'll see many of you next year since I have already committed to lecture at BSS 2015.:drinks:drinks:drinks
  8. Thanks Kevin, good luck with your lectures at the Western too.

    My first lecture at BSS 2014 is on Zone of Optimal Stress (ZOOS). I just looked back at the thread on Podiatry Arena where between us we came up with that terminology and acronym. It was 1st June 2006 (where does time go?). I'd forgotten that the basis for that came from our STJ axis locator paper.

    Anyway, looking forward to the meeting and catching up with colleagues and friends.

    Well, I'm not going to arrive until after ten, but I'll happily partake in a nightcap after a 10 hour shift and a drive from Kent!
  14. Well, how did the seminar go? Am interested in the lectures and the after-seminar extracurricular activities.

    Seminar went well Kevin, I think it safe to say we drowned our sorrows after England leaving the work cup. :)
  16. Sorry to see England (and Spain!) out of the tournament so early....hope it didn't dampen the spirits too badly at the after-seminar parties....hoping that USA makes it to the next round...keeping my fingers crossed....:drinks

    ....and don't forget what the All Blacks did to England in the rugby last night!
  18. It was great to finally put some faces to the names that contribute regularly on Arena and particularly enjoyed the musical contributions from Dave and Simon - a real pleasure. Many thanks for the kind invite to the meal from Bel and Langer - much appreciated.

    Flew a long way for the course, and wasn't disappointed. The lecture quality was great, but really really enjoyed the workshops. I was going to single out a few but they were all great. Simon spooners testing for clinical prescription was good. The informal discussions about gait analysis with David Pratt - great. Christian Barton and Simon Bartolds were great also. And all relevant. An absolute smorgasbord of tips from experts, and colleagues participating. Well worth it, and will definitely pencil another in for a few years time.
    As for the poms losing, well, since I am heathrow departure lounge, I can now say that the silence as Suarez slotted his 2nd goal (and, really a great strike) was priceless.
    However, chatting with Tom McPoil about the Denver broncos and the Super Bowl made my day.

    Some other breaking news from the last few days is that Trevor Prior and I have declared ourselves Belgian for the next 3/52. Delighted with this evenings win over Russia.
