Perhaps if we arrange the weather one day, you could use the triumph :D

Running a bit close to Christmas now, so both folks and pubs are getting booked up, but if there is an appetite for a get together then how about the Airballoon at Birdlip.

http://www.airballoon-pub-gloucestershire.co.uk/

Weekends remaining to us this side of the festivities are:

1 Dec
8 Dec
15 Dec
22 Dec

Choices are:

Lunch or evening
Drink only or Drink & food
Members only or members & significant others

I haven't looked at the menu or prices, check the website and have a think

Personally, despite some ongoing personal issues that should be resolved by then, I'm game for any date (though the 8th makes most sense), lunch with SHMBO assuming I can book a table. And I care not either way if it is the Christmas Menu or just the static.

Any interest?:

1. Pete & Maureen - 8th - Christmas lunch
2.
3.
4.
5.

Of course, there is always the associated Sunday but the pub will be even busier then!

Thanks Pete

Thought it might be. Chances are though I will be away skiing if it's between 15th and 22nd. And I will be at Club Lotus NW post Xmas bash :smt114 :smt030 19/20/21 Jan too. (Yes I know Warks isn't in the NW but I used to live up there!!!) They are at Stirk House Hotel again: nice venue.

Might actually make it one day.....

Sorry Pete, not going to be able to do December, too many other commitments I'm afraid.

Ok, lets pass on this then and somebody can think up something for January. Bearing in mind that we're supposedly in for the most severe winter for 100 years it' maybe wisest not to be travelling anyway! 8)

My daily is now kitted out for winter with Hankook Icebear winter tyres and a set of chains in the boot. Throw anything at me I'll get through, exept 2ft+ of water: it doesn't float!

If you've never used winter instead of summer tyres in snow , you don't know what you're missing :smt023

Okay, so I've definitely replied too late for the 23rd November! I can do 1st December at the air balloon but none of the other dates, and it sounds like there's not much interest so far.

Given Nov-April was hibernation time, :asleep: do we all try for a May meet? 2nd(if cambelt change goes ok otherwise daily tintop) 16th 23rd good for me but am going to Ypres meet on 9th.

Any proposals for venue, given West Midlands seems to stretch from Birmingham to Weston on the Mud via Chippenham!!!!

Darn good question John.

I'm busy up until about the 15th May, so some time after that would be my personal preference...

As to location, what about the Coach and Horses in Weatheroak??

And do we have a day of the week picked out? Thursdays would be my pick.

All of the above, just my 2p
