Well that's it for 2011. My tour ended at Coventry. Although there's been a hint of sadness tonight at not being at the finale, overall I was happy to walk ecstatically away from that gig and indeed the whole weekend.

Did three gigs, Hull, Nottingham and Coventry. Left Nottingham wanting more, but can honestly say Coventry did not leave me wanting. If it was a meal, then I'd had my fill, left fully satisfied and not desperate for more and I think that's a good place to be. (Not that I'd say no to seconds in 2013, if it was offered!!!) Wink

I hope everyone at Ally Pally had a truely fab time and enjoyed all the Specials2 treatment.

I want to say a massive thank you to this forum - to Paul, Mike and Shan, to everyone I met at the gigs and to all the people who post and make this a real community. In 2009 I got ready, went to my old hangout in Blackpool for a couple, went to the gig, had a couple more in aforementioned pub afterwards and got the bus home to my brother's. I had a fab and unforgettable time, but I didn't know any different. This tour I've felt part of something. Even the gigs I've not been at I've been at and the friendship and familiarity with forum members at gigs has made this an extra special Specials experience.

Ta folks Cool Very Happy Cool

I've enjoyed and loved reading your post Caragh and everything you have said strikes a chord for most of us, I bet.

There is something very different about people on here and we have been so lucky to find this 'home' maybe I will be seeing you near here in 2013
Very Happy - Then I can drive anyplace! that way. Love from Mary x

Went to Ally Pally last night and it was SUPERB! From pre gig to the very end, even getting soaked on the way there.

Great words Caragh, couldn't put it better myself.

If last night was the last ever then I'm just glad I was a part of it and have great memories that I'll cherish for ever! Very Happy Crying or Very sad Very Happy
