    Im in the middle of Nottingham.
    Anyone interested in maybe going out to Skegness or similar?
    Just an idea, or maybe there would be a chance of a GTG at Wollaton Hall or similar.
    Regards, Andy

    I'm only slightly North of you in Doncaster so I would be up for it depending on dates, also visit the EC regular so again no problem, please keep me posted

    Its an idea just thrown up in the air so lets just play it by ear and see what comes of it.
    So far it is positive response, and we are heading for the busy time of year so if we decide the meet is in the new year, so be it, and I am sure we will be ready for it.
    Keep your thoughts coming!

    The interest is positive, looks like we just need to throw a few dates around.
    With the christmas period descending on us at a rapid rate it will probably end up being in the new year when we are all bored, see how it pans out.
    Has anyone got a date in mind?

    Best out of season though so we have the roads to ourselves instead of sitting in traffic jams.
