Boot Camp is cancelled 

Unfortunately, I am going to have to cancel the boot camp. Although we have had a few more deposits since December, I can't make the numbers viable.

I'll be returning deposits forthwith and thanks to those who supported us in this. I am really sorry that it didn't work out and I will not be organising another in the immediate future.

Yes, thanks for giving it a go Simon.

It was a great idea and a fitting tribute to Ron. Real shame it didn't pan out.

really sorry to hear this ... even though I wasnt on the list due to family stuff ... i was still looking forward to hearing about it or seeing photos and Videos etc .,,,..

I still think you should keep it in the back of your mind and see if there is enough interest in the future to try again .....

it was a great Idea after all./....

Exactly my thoughts too.

And just as much really sorry for your vain efforts.
This was some serious input, and you are not even through yet.
I feel with you, amigo.

Awww! Reading this has made me so sad :( this was a brilliant idea and I was really looking forward to seeing pictures and hearing about all your adventures!

Lets not scrap this idea completely though and save it for another time. I know I really wanted to come, but sadly buttons and bits of string aren't legal tender. Definitely going to start saving up incase this trip comes back round again :)

Thanks for trying to organise this Simon, your efforts are very much appreciated.

I think I am going to have to look at how we can establish a "fund" to save up enough deposits, a more attractive time slot (although Summer is very hot and expensive to fly) and a better economic outlook

Damn. I was hoping some people would jump in at the last minute. That's really a shame. It was an amazing opportunity.

Thanks again for trying Simon.

About this, were you thinking about setting something up for this summer? If so I would like to know because I have a limited amount of vacation time in a year and if we are definitely not doing something this year then I need to start making other arrangements.

Cheers,

Nenad K.

Appreciate the work involved Simon... Mighty effort.
it was last week I decided I could make this happen..( sorry about the 1001 questions via PM ).
Just too slow of the mark I guess..yep.. Jumping in at the last minute..did the budget.. Putting feelers out for child minding...
Such a great idea..
I hope it eventuates at some future date

It was a great offer, thank you. My problem was a big family birthday towards the end of it I couldn't miss.

Can I suggest setting a date NOW for next year and taking deposits now, members can arrange their lives to suit it and away we go. You can have my deposit as soon as you like.

My family will be coming, so I would arrange our accommodation

That's a timeline I could work with. As well, I'd be willing to be a deposit faaaar in advance.
