The Old Website

 

Back in the day we had good old www.gass.org.uk  but it got old...

THE OLD GASS WEBSITE

From September 2006 to September 2017

 

The original website at www.gass.org.uk was about to fade into history and disappear forever

(although if you click the link it will still be there until mid 2022).

 

The problem was it was on a really old programme called Microsoft FrontPage 

which was no longer supported.  That meant it had to be updated to this new site at www.gass.uk

where you can find JANUARY 2018 to the present day.

Rather than lose our records, and rather than write a whole new book,

I choose to patiently download the whole bloody site, word for word, picture for picture,

from the old Microsoft ‘FrontPage’. 

 

And so saved our amazing and in many ways surreal history yet again for posterity

in a Word Document which goes on for pages and pages and pages,
although to be fair it does cover some 11 years.

 

The formatting is crap because the website was never designed to be downloaded this way

but it works, just.  You have to use a PDF viewer to read it but you'll manage.

Even some of the weblinks work to videos etc.  Amazing!!

 

The original GASS book (which you can also view by clicking here) covered the period from 1982-2014

but in shortened form picking out the highlights, it didn’t include everything this record has

– which is abso-bloody-lutely everything!!!! 

This tome is the full record of our adventures during the years 2006- 2017, nothing excluded.

 

THERE ARE FOUR VOLUMES ON THIS DRIVE

Mainly because they are monster files

 

VOLUME ONE

SEPTEMBER 2006 – AUGUST 2009

 

 

VOLUME TWO

SEPTEMBER 2009 – SEPTEMBER 2012

 

 

 

VOLUME THREE

OCTOBER 2012 – SEPTEMBER  2016

 

 

 

VOLUME FOUR    

OCTOBER 2016 – DECEMBER 2017

 

 

 

 

 

In all a total of 134 GASS meetings,
all lovingly recorded, warts and all!

Enjoy!!!
