As mentioned by a few other members, seems like we are due for a gathering.

It's coming up to a year since our last 'big' GTG when we had about 20 or so people turn up in the Cotswolds.

Any ideas or dates for the next one?

My initial suggestion is maybe February time in the middle regions of the UK aiming for 10% of the boards members say......

Good to see another GTG in the planning.  <img src="http://www.mbclub.co.uk/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/banana.gif" border="0" valign="absmiddle" alt=':bannana:'>

We need to establish who would like to attend, and where they are, so we can arrange a location central to the majority, without excluding anyone through choice of location that has to travel further.

M40 Junction 9/10 gives an approx. idea of my area.


Any date should be OK with enough warning.

I’m interested. Don’t care when it is.

Northamptonshire / Cambridgeshire.

u can put me down 4 it 2


Gotto come from London so anything north of Luton is like Scotland to me  <img src="http://www.mbclub.co.uk/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/blush.gif" border="0" valign="absmiddle" alt=':blush:'>

Would be good if someone had some space/land to host it on rather than meeting in a Macdonalds car park or something <img src="http://www.mbclub.co.uk/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/omg.gif" border="0" valign="absmiddle" alt=':eek:mg:'>

Yes - Without a member offering to host (my modest driveway will not accomodate!!!) a pleasant open space away from traffic and pedestrians is what we need ideally.


I am conscious that Shude (and others?) may want to attend and had to travel a lond distance for the 1st GTG and has been unable to attend the last two, due to distance.
I am not saying we should all go North so one person can be on the doorstep, but some mid ground can surely be found.

How are all those interested so far, OK about travelling to somewhere here? :-

A needle in a haystack I know, I have nowhere in mind (suggestions?), just thinking we should get some idea. Location will always sway people and it would be good to get some definate votes.

EDIT: I happen to be central, but am willing to travel further if that is what the majority wants.

I am looking forward to a GTG.

As mentioned before, I am willing to offer a venue that is quiet, easy to find and has plenty of room and most importantly tea and coffee <img src="http://www.mbclub.co.uk/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif" border="0" valign="absmiddle" alt=':D'>

Slap bang in the middle of the above map, Kettering, so pretty central. It would have to be a weekend which I guess it would be any way. I would have to discuss and clear it with my colleagues but it shouldnt be a problem.

All have a think about it and post your views, if it is not suitable/acceptable I am willing to travel anywhere for a GTG.

Here we have it, an offer for someone to host the event - EXCELLENT!

I believe that most of us are within about 100 miles or so radius of here?

Good to count another vote though. Perhaps you can do a before and after?

Dates....pretty much any weekend is good for me...as long as there is a few weeks notice.

Venue is fine

Just have to hope dates dont clash with work - but most weekends are fine by me <img src="http://www.mbclub.co.uk/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif" border="0" valign="absmiddle" alt=':)'>

Ok, so before we start on specific dates, anyone have a preferance to Saturdays or Sundays?

I don't mind either.

Looks like Kettering is favourable then. <img src="http://www.mbclub.co.uk/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif" border="0" valign="absmiddle" alt=':D'>

I am thinking that I could host it at work, and as we work Saturday mornings it would be better on a Sunday or at least a Saturday afternoon.

As far as dates are concerned I am quite flexible, a few weeks notice would be OK.
