    Save the date!

    I blooming well hope there will be GTGs between now and this date, but I want to organise a bash for CFs 7th birthday. As a lot of people cite either non-availability or lack of funds for not getting together and meeting with the CF alcoholic (mainly a) fraternity, I think a date 9 months in the future is something a lot more of us can book in and turn up to :biggrin

    I also plan on organising something a bit more than the usual day long bender, though fear not, drinkies will be involved.

    I have chosen two activities that I feel could appeal to CF members - select whichever is most favourable, and highest number of votes wins. I will be doing all the organising, so all you'll have to do is pay and turn up. Simples!

    So, please select from the poll, and let's try to have a GTG to beat ALL GTGs :)

    Only if it's a console game where I can kill you all online.

    Or is that not in keeping with the spirit of the occasion? :oops:

    I think something along the lines of Halo (I watch too much Big Bang Theory) would be acceptable :biggrin

    You wouldn't necessarily win though..... :twisted:

    You's will have to let me know if its a FPS game before I come because it wouldn't be fair on you all if I came. . . . . I'll just come for drinks in that case. . . . .

    I can't see any reason why there can't be a variety... but that can be a different poll after this one closes, as a gaming day is the runaway winner at the moment :)

    Sounds cool, but where would it be held?

    Just wondering if you would accept mainland Europeans as well :P

    I'm sure that could be arranged :biggrin

    As for the 'where' - that depends on how many accepts, and cost.

    Inevitably we'd aim for somewhere large and accessibly - invariably Birmingham or London, I should imagine.

    why isnt there an option to do both?

    How about paintballing followed by a session playing an fps? get to shoot people twice?

    Also ya forgot to put a where, that makes all teh difference. It too far ahead for me to say yes, but i'd love to do this once (CFgtg i mean!)

    Unfortunately Twizz it'll be easier for me to figure out 'where' when I know what we're doing, and what kind of numbers we're looking at.

    It's a chicken and egg scenario, but if I can at least get an idea...

    Put it this way - it'll be somewhere you can easily get to by train. Even from Norwich :biggrin

    Cardiff is accessible.

    Like I said, I need to know what we're doing and how many, before I can look at what kind of venue to book.
