    I hope I'm alright posting this, I've been waiting for the others to start a thread.

    We were a bit tispy in an Oxford pub when we (Tony, Chris, Loiuse, myself and maybe Alex) decided we need to meet up in a slightly more northern place. Blackpool was decided with the aim of making it last a couple of days. Hopefully staying in the same place so we can enjoy the local liquid together.

    Obviously next year but I don't think we talked about exactly when? I know I can't do the middle of September as from the 10th to the 14th I plan to be driving around Europe. Depending on the car I use and how much crap you bring I can offer 1-3 seats to people to get there.

    Thoughts, ideas, suggestions?

    You all may have been a little tipsy but I wasn't & remember everything! :lol:

    The idea was to do it in Spring 2009 sometime & book a whole B&B for the night.

    Blackpool is good for network links like air, rail & motorway and has the benifits of entertainment, nightlife, lights and the promenade.

    I remember a fair amount too. I'm just pretending not to, I feel it's a wise choice. ;)

    If you can get the right dates sorted, I could do that too, as I only live around 5 miles north of the place (when in the country obviously).

    To the North we go!!
    Should we start learning to talk funny?

    I put my hand up for a spare car seat to get up there - preferably in a car!

    Having read the old mans Rutland thread I think it has to be a few weeks before or after.

    Was thinking of April?

    We could hire a bus and start in Blackpool and move to Rutland - or vice versa.
    We could do the whole charabanc bit with the crates of ale in the boot, kiss-me-quick hats, donkey rides and all the rest.


    We could do the same in Blackpool, too :lol:
