All very good points Kiz, but I think we are in danger of getting ahead of ourselves here. The very first thing that must be decided is the date. That will govern who can commit and who can't. The resulting number will affect which establishment to pick.

For example 18-21 March is a non-starter for me. Too close to needing to prepare my car for a 2000 mile round trip to Scotland and back. The weekend before that is marginal and would give me a difficult decision to make.

I don't have an unlimited budget! :blink:

That's why I said we need to firm a date up ASAP. ;)

Are these dates not visible via tapatalk because I have no idea what you guys are referring to?

My apologies: I misconstrued your post. When you said cut-off date I assumed that meant for the deposit payments, not which one we decide on for the event.

What is this tapatalk of which you speak? ;)

I was talking about the organisational process not the poll.
- Decide which weekend to hold the event
- Establish committed numbers
- Choose which place to stay at
- Determine cut off date for paying deposit
- Ensure all confirmed attendees have done so
- Make booking
Regarding team responsibilities/logistics, that is only engaged after stages 1 &2 have taken place.

The specific weekends I mentioned in my post are those which I either can't do or will struggle with. Hope that clarifies things.

I am happy to cook as said previously, just so long as it's pretty much a big meal for everyone.

Kiz, don't you work for wholesale food? You could grab some pies, etc
Lee could grab tea and coffee.
Myself I could go grab some meat, there is a good slaughterhouse up here with quite decent prices.

Yep coffee and tea no problem.
Let's firm up a date as said that will give us the numbers.
Feb around half term week is easiest for us but flexible for most dates.

Indeed I do :)

Will struggle with frozen stuff (might be OK with the odd box of burgers), but I can bring any of this lot at a reasonable price ;)

Can also get 5kg trays of fresh chicken breasts, whole Pork Loins, US Steak cuts (one will feed 20) and other bits and bobs.

OK, sorry to be nagging but we need to sort this ASAP as these type of places get booked up for weddings and corporate days at the drop of a hat. We need to establish who is going and which venue to book and the weekend pretty damn quick. I'd suggest the end of the month with people committing deposits.

Can you make me a +1 too? She has a Z4, is that allowed on the run?

Yep at the back, although it's likely that's all a Z4 would manage [emoji23][emoji23]
