    Right then

    The staff have been talking long and hard about this and decided on a venue. All we need from you guys is a date you all want to go. I have posted 3 dates that are available. I have tried to get the dates during the summer hols. If we can't decide on a date then, we can postbone it until September. However, that may be a bit close to a winter meet up.

    Dates as per poll

    Venue will be Northampton, which for those of you that are geographically challenged is inbetween London and Birmingham. The meal will be at the Cripps Recreation Centre which is found in the ground of Northampton General Hospital. I know this sounds a strange place, but it is where I used to work and I have managed to get a pretty good deal (menu and prices to follow but should be around the £16 mark) and drinks are club prices rather than pub prices.

    The Cripps Recreation Centre is sited in the J area.

    Now I know this sounds like a silly place, but it is close to the town centre, quiet and a nice place.

    Lets fix a date and I can start to organise this quality event in more detail.

    Thanks AJ

    PS the 25th Aug is Bank Holiday weekend

    The hardest thing in getting the previous events organised was getting somebody to organise a venue make the bookings and take deposits from people etc, AJ's put himself forward and made a start at getting the day to happen. Without AJ making that first effort we really would have gone around is circles again just like the previous meets.

    This wont be the last meet so we do need more volunteers to organise future events so hosting one in London isn't out of the question its just not this time.

    The 25th is out for me but I should be able to make any of the other two dates, I'll drop my vote in later though as I need to check that it doesn't clash with any birthdays etc. :)

    Sorry folks, I'll be ducking out of this one, finances are still tight and I have something else planned at the end of the month.

    Fingers crossed I'll see you all at #4 :D

    Yeah, thats fair enough, but the price is still dependant on getting a cheap fare to brum aswell :)

    I've cast my vote, but I will honestly try to make any of the dates.

    I should be going to a wedding on the 10th, so I'll be in a party mood for anyone that wants to be harrassed :twisted:

    I too have not voted as at the moment I can make any date

    I suppose in hindsight it would of been better to have multiple choice and then pick the one with the most votes :)

    A London one is still in the works, It may be the Christmas one, or an autumn one if the demand is there
    there's a fair bit of logistics involved in sorting out a London meet that's affordable to everyone whilst not being in the middle of no where, hang tight, CF will make it to the big smoke!
