    It was March 8th but I only object in a 'rather have another day' sense as it will be my sister's birthday so it's always useful to keep it free.

    Using a modicum of logic,which is unusual for me it looks like we have narrowed the date down to either 15th or 22nd March with the most likely venue Leicester.

    Are there any problems with either date or venue ?

    Would prefer the 22nd to the 15th but problem with 15th not unsurmountable if necessary! Leicester fine for me.

    OK let's try and keep track of this

    Below are list of people who have OK'd the date and said something about the venue:

    Quinno - erring towards Leicester. Happy with 22nd
    Roger - Leicester. Happy with 22nd
    Gill & Ray - Leicester. No objection to 22nd.
    Trainman - erring towards Leicester
    Sheffieldhatter - Happy with 22nd
    OB - Unfussy. Happy with 22nd.
    Bucking Fastard - Happy with 22nd
    Hoppy - Derby.
    Rob - Leicester, with caveats. No objection to 22nd.
    Strongers - Leicester. No objection to 22nd.
    PSM - Leicester. Happy with 22nd
    A&H - Leicester. Happy with 22nd
    Oggy - Leicester. No objection to 22nd.
    Gann/SN21 - Leicester. No objection to 22nd

    So it looks like Leicester is the choice unless there's a late swing.

    The 22nd also looking good. If others post their preferences and availability I'll keep this updated.

    I've never been to Leicester apart from Filbert Street (the old ground) on several occasions.

    So it would be virgin territory for pubs for me, which would be good.

    The only problem is that it's a bit of a sod to get to for me as it's 3 trains and a tram and 4.5+ hours to get there.

    If we're going to go for Leicester I'd probably have to stay over somewhere.

    Leicester sounds good to me. I have no preference on thed ate as I have no idea what I’ll be doing in March next year. Hopefully the beer gods will look favourably on me and I’ll be able to make it.

    March 22nd looks good to me, although as usual this will depend on whether I'm able to get he day off work.

    I like the sound of Leicester, if only so we can witness Quinno's return to The Last Plantagenet (JD Wetherspoon)

    That spectacular review got a mention on the Black Country bus. One of my finest...not!

    Leicester on the 22nd sounds fine by me.

    It really will be a trip down memory lane, as I haven't been there since the early 1980s, when a good mate was at medical school. All I can remember about the place is drinking vast amounts of Everard's Tiger in the Old Horse, trying my very first doner kebab and eating a Chicken Phal so purging, it nearly took my lungs and bottom teeth with it!...Happy days.
