Chaps, I would come if not for my 8 year old's rugby matches on Sunday mornings.

We play at Chobham until 12:00 then a 1.5/2 hour drive to Kettering will make it too late I think.

If you want a secure venue for the one after, we could do Cap Genini Ernst & Young in Woking (where I work). Good facilities, free drinks and close to the town centre for food and stuff.
It's a new building with loads of open air and underground car parking should the weather be bad.

We could call it the Southern region GTG. I reaise it would be no good for those of you n&orth of the midlands but perhaps you could arrange a Midlands & North region GTG.

Cheers guys.

P.S. Thinking about it, we could have a summer BBQ while we are at it and get George Fraser to brings some diagnostic testing kit down.

Just thinking out load :D

A shame you can't make it. Tell the kid he has to miss a week :p


You sure have room for it in your car park! I used to work opposite in one of the Offices along Church Street West in Woking.

I hope you have enjoyed the food in Sandie's Cafe.

Hi Graham, I was in Sandies last week for a double egg, ham and chips followed by steamed jam pud with custard :bannana: :bannana: :bannana: :bannana: :bannana:

Where are you based these days? Do you think Woking would be a good location for the southerners?

Cheers.

Sandie's did nothing for my weight, but boy the food is good. Sandie is good entertainment too.

Our office relocated to Aylesbury and I live in Buckinghamshire too now.

Woking although not as close to home as it was, is accesible enough. I know where to go anyway!

Must admit to not noticing any 'cute' things at Sandies. There is an old dear that collects the plates and hands out the food. Probably Sandies mum; now she is 'cute' LOL.

Refreshments

What is the general view on refreshments and food for the GTG?

Personally I think it would be better if I laid on some food, nothing fancy just some sausage rolls, sandwiches, crisps and cakes etc. Drinks will be available anyway, tea, coffee squash coke etc.

I have been to two big local pubs today and they are packed solid on Sundays and are reluctant to take a booking for 30+ people and would want a hefty deposit anyway.:(

Also I think the whole idea of a GTG is look at and talk about each others cars, sitting in a pub in little groups with the cars outside makes this a little difficult.:confused:

I dont mind providing the food, I will not be using any petrol money so I think it is only fair. Plus we have the room and facilities at work so I might as well use them.

It is up to you lot really, I am easy, this is just my idea, let me know what you think.

Jim,

Oh, seeing as I am the host;) I think it is only fair that the Wax Wizard uses my car as a demo:p (the whole car, not just the bonnet):bannana: :bannana:

More generosity!

Agree with what you say and Sausage rolls and cakes get my vote :D :D

(Sounds like my sort of packed lunch ;) )

I reckon you'll need to get the Wax Wizard to do a second Vivianite car Jimmy... just so you can get a 2nd opinion, I've only your best interest at heart :p ;)

I also second Dave's idea, I don't mind chipping in for food, seems only fair to me. :bannana:

I agree with chipping in for some grub :D

Anyone who has met me will know I like my food - so I'd better make a double contri !

How about everyone brings some food/drink with them ?

a couple of people could bring cheap BBQ's others could bring stuff to grill on said BBQ's and we're on our way

A few voulnteers for sausage rolls, sandwiches etc and the food quantity could grow very quickly without anyone spending a fortune

A few desserts and we are sorted !

Suggestions and offers please post below

Alternatively - ridicule and abuse re above post to koolvin@mbclub.co.uk please :D :D
