    I know it seems like ages away but missed having a GTG last couple of years, so who's up for it?

    Preferred dates? 26 August is a Bank Holiday Monday so maybe the 25th? or are people going away that weekend?

    Also anyone know if any major sporting or motorsport events on any of the Sundays in August?

    For those that dont know where I am, its Home - Mercland, we are located in Nuneaton (between Coventry & Leicester)

    Cheers

    Jay

    Nice one Jay.

    I'd say go for mid-August because first and last weeks will be most popular holiday weeks.

    There was talk of a drive to AMG on the last month of the year but it has not been organised. I would agree I prefer non Bank Holidays as that tends to be family time for me.

    Should have allowed multiple choices on the poll? I can make the 4th (which I voted for) or 25th.

    I'd like to come also, I enjoy the GTG's and meeting forum members. Preferably not bank holiday though.

    At present any of the above, though the B/h w/e would be the most likely to be going away if in August.

    Worth noting MBO has already arranged a GTG on 17/18 August seams a shame to clash

    11th or 25th would be what I vote for as I may be cycling in the London 100 on the 4th and my sons birthday is the 17th, so will be busy on the 18th.

    Either date should be ok.
