    Default The Alan Winfield Memorial Pub Crawl - Stapleford and Long Eaton

    http://forums.pubsgalore.co.uk/showt...-alan-winfield


    I am planning on doing this memorial pub crawl on Wednesday, 5th September. Anyone who knew Alan through his contributions to Pubs Galore, or from his blog or his comments on other people's blogs, may want to join in. Apologies that it is rather short notice but my idea is that people could do this for themselves on any day they choose, if they are sufficiently motivated. It doesn't require large groups of semi-drunks to celebrate Alan's life and work. Most of Alan's crawls were by himself or with one or two companions, so I don't mind if I do it by myself - in fact perhaps it is better that way as I am not sure what sort of shambling, stumbling spectacle I will become after more than 20 pubs!

    I would love to join you on this Will, a great idea, unfortunately it's not currently logistically or financially viable for me at this date, I wish you luck.

    Cracking idea which I too cannot support due to other holiday commitments..

    But have fun and I see there will be the opportunity to sample John Smiths Smooth Crap and Worthington Cream crap on the way...

    A Wednesday isn't viable for me as it essentially constitutes two and a bit days leave, but I love the idea.

    If it was a Friday/Saturday, however...

    Although, hopefully, you will get the opportunity to say "... and this was a nice drink" at least once during the day!

    Yes, I understand. I just wanted to get it done as soon as possible, and I appreciate that this means doing it myself!

    It can be done again, though. It doesn't have to be a one-off.

    I'm going ahead with the crawl as planned on Wednesday, 5th September. But if someone else wants to propose a date far enough in the future so that people can commit to it, I'll be happy to join in and do it again!

    There seem to be some pretty decent pubs along the way, so there's every chance. Whether I'll be able to read my notes the next day is rather doubtful, however.

    I'm in the same boat as Quinno,I couldn't join in on the 5th and would need a bit of advanced notice.However it's a great idea and something I would be most certainly up for.From a London perspective there are direct trains to Long Eaton which seem to be a cheaper option for advanced fares.A Friday or Saturday would work in September/October apart from Sept 21,22,28th and Oct 6,12,26,27th

    Sorry Will, I too have commitments on that date, but we were in Alan's hometown last weekend and raised a glass to him in The Horse & Jockey
