HI,
CAN YOU PLEASE INCLUDE ME IN THIS EVENT.
I have not made the last 2; but incidentally I have already contacted the Westfield Court Hotel to make my booking.
The lady in charge of the bookings is requesting a name and contact details of a member of the Club,.....preferably on Monday,.....as the lady has not yet opened next years diary.

Best Wishes

Ken

As a side note, if your wondering why we are not holding this meeting in the North East as
decided at the Wales meeting, its because it "might" be a tad bloody cold cold2 in early May
up that way, so the North East one will be held in August. thumb

Yes 'Good Call' on that one Mick, it's not uncommen to still have hard frosts up there as late as May.
I look forward to the trip in August - it is my 'Homeland' (born Newcastle - lived in Ashington) so I am keen to see where we will be based.
Really hope it is in an area where we can make a trip to Holy Island across the causeway but that would also depend on tide times on the day. Fingers crossed.
As for learning Yam-Yam for the trip in May - my advice is, -
get a head start and by the book 'Larn ya sel geordie' ready for August.

Alright folks, just a quick update...we have now completely filled up the Westfield Hotel so now need to look at the overflow options.

We have 3 doubles too many on the list so are there any folks (that have requested a double); that wouldn't mind being booked into another hotel. The two hotels we have in mind are within a mile of the Westfield Court and of course I will be arranging transportation to and from the hotel (taxis etc).

Carole at the Westfield Court has also kindly offered to do breakfast for anyone staying at other hotels, so give me a shout if you don't mind and I'll start making arrangements thumb

Obviously if we don't get volunteers I'll have to do it on a first come-first served basis to keep it fair.

Cheers,

Nick

Closer? As it stands the other hotel I've got planned is a 2 minute walk away from the Westfield on the same road; and the pub is in-between them. :dont-know:

I know it's not ideal having an overflow hotel but this was the place I had in mind due to the price, the only hotel locally available that could accommodate everyone is the Fort Dunlop Travelodge...if you tap that place into Tripadvisor, you'll see why I chose not to have it there! thumb

Let me know if that's O.K. with you

Well guys, it seems our meets are getting really popular & rightly so.

Your points are very valid Pie & it might be a good idea if we look into planning each meet a year in advance (next august is in the northeast so we're already on the case with that one).

What do you guys think of discussing the May 2017 meet at the May 2016 meet ?

It might also be worth considering only looking at venues that can accommodate up to 60 guests to give us the best chance of getting everyone at the same venue.
Obviously price plays a large part in finding the right venue but if planned well ahead it gives us the best chance of pulling it off.

The most important thing is to keep it affordable.

discussing meets a year in advance is a good idea in principle but would we all be willing to commit to a date a year ahead and arrange the time off etc...im self employed so i can say yes to any dates i choose too but not so sure about everyone else.I think once you get to around 60+ guests we are gonna struggle to keep us all in the same venue anyway,and at a reasonable price too,not ideal i know,but the more guests we get at the meets,its inevitable at some point at some meets we will need to split up.I'd prefer to stay as a group booking if possible but if we need to split up,that wouldnt bother me either as long as were not miles apart  thumb

Fair comment pie.

As the meets are getting bigger it may be worth looking at alternative venues depending on numbers & as mentioned before affordability.

Certainly worth a discussion possibly in a new topic page. What do you think guys ?
