This would require valves, wouldn't it. I mean, you just couldn't have this in your room and stream on some wirless transistor contraption; you'd need a proper record player with valves and a really good needle.

I've been rumbled Nigel... it has a false bottom with a pimped Crosley Crusier cunningly hidden away. Back to the drawing board :)

Oh dear, and there I was thinking you’d hidden an actual record player inside!

Four pages overnight on pies!!! This is what happens when wrong information is supplied, PM's flying back and forth with total speculation.

1. A pie thread was opened as per Scalford and for years we had a few boxes of pies, distributed. It was sanctioned by the then owners of Scalford as a long standing tradition. Rachel and I even bought and organised it all 3 years ago.

2. First year at Kegworth (last year) a few brought some and it was said by someone that next year we could get it going again - a few orders as per Scalford.

3. I only looked at the 'Pie' thread a few days ago to see not only different sorts of pies but also pasties and quiches....75 in total. This 'tradition' of a simple Melton Mowbray pork pie has expanded into something altogether different.

4. The hotel allows us to basically re arrange the whole place for the weekend, give us a big discount on food (and then we bring in food), it's like bringing our own beer and expecting to use their bar and glasses to drink it in.

5. I have never said to STOP the pies at all, this is ok as long as its only pies, the same as we've done for 10 years. I can pass it off as tradition and charity. Turning it into an outside catering food fest cannot happen.

6. And just everyone is clear the hotel has nothing to do with this - I am saving a problem before it arises (as Rachel and I also run a hotel). I'm fine with the pork pies as long as its kept discreet.

Thankyou Peter.

Well if Paul is still up for this? @Maverick Then happy to leave my pennies in the pot and have my pork pie order.

Anyway I'm sure the hotel won't lose out on food as they're just snack items for late at night/elenvensies. Am sure main meals will be ordered by the captive audience as usual.

Surely all sensitivites can be avoided if it is made clear to the hotel that pork pies are for "offcomers" to take home with them as a ritual celebration of having been (historically) close to Melton Mowbray, and not for consumption on the premises as an alternative to coughing up in the bar/restaurant.

Haha love it Paul, nice one.

So good I have to repeat it, it is genius:

Pies are flying in all directions at the tented forum as rampantly commercial owner, Pie-Food-Pete, got himself into a gelatinous state over the idea that the Kegworth Conference Centre pie munching ritual could descend into rampant commercialism. Pete, who owns a different hotel that you’ve also never heard of, hastily put together the rules of WAM ‘Pie Club’:

  1. You do not tell the hotel about WAM Pie Club.
  2. You do not talk with your mouth full.
  3. You do not talk about anyone else’s mouthful.
  4. Quiche is not pie, you dirty f*cking b*stard!
  5. Super Wammer pies will have extra storage space.

Member reaction was mixed. Lurch told Pete “I’m happy to p*ss in the pot for my pie” but The Flash said “Please avoid my sensitivities, I don’t want any off-comers pulling my pork…”

Bye, bye to my Keggie Pork Pie
Drove my system to the Keggie but the pork pies were dry
And them good ole boys were talking cables ‘n’ shite
Singin’ this’ll be the day that I get diabetes
This’ll be the day that I die…
