I think it will be nearer 7:30 before we can get there. It's quite a trek from Derbyshire, especially in rush hour traffic!
We will be planning on eating as well though.

Jim,

Many apologies for not returning your email, poor show I know. I had assumed you would be coming with us and meant that there was another place not including You, Jasper, and Me...

So, one more place available if it needs to be, also I'll plan to arrive a luittle later than 6:30 so that we can all eat together at 7:30, OK with everyone?

Dave

So maybe the rest of you may know each other, but we don't. I take it we're not planning on wearing pink carnations. So if you see a couple of lost travellers wandering around with black jackets with Rainy City on the back, that's us, so please say hello.

ARRRRGGGGHHHHH!!!!

Ok problems, one of the guys I work for has just informed me that his uncle recently bought the Fishermans Arms and turned it into a posh Italian Restaurant.....OOOPS!!!

Probably too late for anyone to read this if they are going but the new venue is:

The Rake Inn, Blackstone Edge Old Road, Littleborough, OL15 0JN
01706 379 689

If you go to the Fishermans Arms there will be maps and direction available to take you the 1.5 miles to the new spot where there is food and waiting!!! You can also find my phone number with the directions!

Cheers,

Dave

All ok, I think everyone who wanted to come picked up a 'change of venue' leaflet at the old 'Fishermans'! The food was good and cheap, the was decidedly drinkable and the new pub was small and log fired. The weather definately sucked so all you folks thinking of riding there, see you on the 23rd of April for a longer chat, three hours is never enough to get to know each other and ask really pertinent questions.

See you all soon for a weekend!

Dave

And a good evening was had by all. A pleasant way to spend a winter evening. Excellent choice of venue. Keeping our options open for the camping weekend as it does clash with something else we had planned, but definitely see you all at the main event in June.

Hi, sorry I/we couldn't make it, weather looked too uncertain to venture over there on a bike!

Hopefully catch you at the Northern meet - only about 15 miles away!!!
