  4. How many times have you been to Glastonbury! POLL

    Going since 2007 so 9 in a row. 10th this year, going strong at 64.
  5. Counting down the memories

    Although I replied earlier related to Michael Jackson news in 2009, I had to re-check the title that it wasn't just about that year. My first year in 2007 aged 54, I remember sitting on the GREEN grass at Brothers (I used to teach one of them) and thinking this was the best place in the world, enjoying a cider with my daughter - then it started raining! Been every year since and intend to go on as long as possible. Now volunteering and putting something back to the event which keeps me going, even if my wife doesn't necessarily agree about the talk which starts the day after the event and continues throughout the year (she doesn't attend). This year my sister in her seventies is attending for the first time on the Sunday (she's local) and as it is her birthday on that day we are going to have a great celebration with her children, grandchildren, nephews and nieces and in laws attending. And no, we will not be sitting in a row of chairs at the Pyramid all day. But no doubt birthday cake and lots of cider will be consumed. And in terms of memories, John Fogerty, need I say more!
  6. Counting down the memories

    Remember passing this guy and thought how quick is the human mind.
  7. I'm still going strong at 64 and once I retire in 2018 will have time to volunteer in the future and have more time to stay for the full week as well as doing other festivals.
  8. 1967

    Even had one or two of these going on 16 at the time. great teenage years.
  9. Happy Birthday Michael

    By coincidence it is my sons 38th today. we will be there in 2017 along with daughter, 27 last week, and other son 24 this Saturday. Expensive month October with deposit money as well.
  10. Did anyone outside the UK manage to get tickets?

    Technically Jersey is outside of the UK, so yes I did.
  11. Refreshinator

    Only booking page i got was auto fresh of 7 secs on Chrome on my ancient laptop. none of the modern ones got beyond holding page. Put in first number from drop down list as computer remembered numbers from last year and couldn't understand why number kept on disappearing - had forgot to turn off auto refresh! Once done, sorted, although had to go back once from payment page. Not bad for a 63 year old. All the younger generation failed to get a booking page. Just as well they rely on me! had refreshinator but tried it out in ticket sale and it was blocked on the iPad. Had no intention of using it today. 10 years in a row now for daughter and myself.
  12. 2017 Ticket Sale

    That was brutal. Managed to get tickets at 9.20 on the only booking page I had the whole time. Failed to get tickets for other people. Every year since 2007 now. Email through as well. Daughter failed at work and four other people failed to get through as well. And the old laptop was the one that got through. Bought a new MacBook to replace it a few weeks ago but old trusty is not going into retirement now.
  13. Tickets Despatched!!!!! glast-GOOOOO!
