    Ah yes, that does seem more likely...!

    Yes... When we said we'd lost Peter and Les we didn't mean that we'd lost Peter and Les, you know!

    If you've a Landy handy then fair enough. I'm not that keen on taking my Focus around those roads in ice and snow, though. After Sedburgh it's not exactly dual-carriageway, you know...

    (If anyone hasn't been round there before, take a look at the A684 between Sedbergh and Hawes on Multimap 1:25,000 scale and count the contour lines! :rolleyes: It's okay in good weather, though.)

    Big Spanner in Works Time

    What about meeting in May instead? No easter or other school hols - only 2 BH weekends to avoid, and the likelihood of slightly better weather ....

    Well, I wasn't going to call you a Big Spanner, but if you insist...

    Okay, at Leon's suggestion (and with apologies to those who have already responded) I'll add those dates to the selection -

    4/5 March
    11/12 March
    18/19 March
    25/26 March
    1/2 April
    8/9 April
    22/23 April
    6/7 May (clashing with the APUG conference for Les and any other pond-hoppers)
    13/14 May
    20/21 May

    Aye's and Nay's for each please.

    I'll aye for those, too - and point out that Saturday 13th May is a full moon, so potential for night shots if it's clear...?

    Okay, the one weekend which most people reckon they can make (some more easily than others) is 22/23 April. It's also one of the few weekends in the period we're looking at when the Inn currently doesn't have a band booked, so I reckon that's going to have to be it.

    The list (taken from my spreadsheet (yes, it really has got that complex!)) looks like this - Leon, Ailsa, BobF and yours truly with Dave Miller as 'not ideal but do-able' and 127 (Ian) & MandyS as 'not ideal but hopefully do-able'. AndyBax might also be able to make it, but won't know until closer to the time.

    Andrea? How about yourself?

    I've spoken to the Green Dragon (I should really have prog rock playing in the background when I say things like that, shouldn't I?!) and they currently have enough space for us all. (Mind you they also currently have a second waterfall in the bar! :o ) They do tend to book up quickly though so I wouldn't wait too long before booking.

    Their number is 01969 667392, their address is Green Dragon Inn, Hardraw, North Yorkshire DL8 3LZ and their website is http://www.greendragonhardraw.co.uk/

    Phew...!

    Les - Gutted you won't be there, sir. If you find yourself passing J23 M6 one weekend then give me a bell and I'll buy you a pint in lieu of your birthday.

    I'd love to come. I think the previous w/e i'm in Holland with my Team of "finely tuned muscle machines" [Ailsa 2005] at the Amstel Gold. So, if I have survived the tasting of the sponsors wares, I hope to be there! Thanks for thinking of me. Most kind

    Bring some back for the rest of us! Man (and woman, come to think of it) does not live by emulsion alone!

    Hopefully we can manage more of a natter this time around.
