    Default Summer 2020 crawl - possible venues

    As suggested by Aqualung here’s a thread for venue suggestions down south
    There are many diseases,
    that strike people's kneeses,
    Covid19! is one by name
    It comes from the East
    Packed in bladders of yeast
    So the Chinese must take half the blame.

    Apologies to Spike Milligan

    I reluctantly agree that it ought to be the South on the basis that Brum in Autumn doesn't get hijacked. I would have thought that the candidates from last time could be used but I'm going for Caerdydd, probably better known as Cardiff. It's arguably the only suitable venue in Wales and has good rail links (unless they are flooded!) with London, the Midlands and the North West. The date would depend on events at the Stadium.

    Well the two runners up in the last poll were Cardiff and Winchester, I can't see much changing in another poll, Reading is good and fairly easy to get to I imagine for most but we did it 7 years ago although things have changed a bit from then.

    Yes, but wasn't it agreed that we wouldn't do any repeats until we've done the Birmingham 10th anniversary crawl this autumn? Or have I imagined that...

    I'm not sure Caerdydd is all that, though I'd be happy to be proved wrong. I've not really done anything in Winchester, so that would get my vote.

    How about Lincoln?

    Describing either Lincoln or Cardiff as 'the south' is a bit of a stretch - I'd be very happy with Winchester.
