Our usual September appointment with the Jubilee School in Addlestone was another well-attended GAS-fest with mouth-watering gear on show in the Main Hall.
Add to the mix a well-stocked raffle table, the BC sales corner, refreshments and lots of catching up with friends, and you end up with another thoroughly enjoyable meetup.

This is the bass Stingray5 was grabbing in the pic above. The effect pedal was to be added to the raffle prizes.
Happy Jack, OBBM, Stephen

It was another great day of bass-related happiness. We are already planning next year’s bash, to be held on 29th September 2018. This is what Hamster said a few weeks after the 2017 bash:
Well, the SEBB was a financial success and as usual we made a profit that has been distributed to good causes as follows:
Cancer Research UK – Specifically for breast cancer
Prostate Cancer UK – For those gentleman’s nether regions
4sight – Supporting people with sight loss
Shooting Star Chase – A local children’s hospice
I’ve already had a planning meeting, well it was actually an excuse to go to the pub, about what contacts we can approach to make a guest appearance at next years SEBB.
The short list is impressive!
The date is already in the diary. Watch this space for more info!
