    Sounds like a good idea,would definitely be up for that but would need a bit of lead time.I suppose the location/venue is the big question but maybe that would become more obvious when those interested have shown their hand.With an advanced rail ticket I can get around the country quite easily ,but getting the boat there may take a little longer

    I guess given the demographics we'd be looking at somewhere not much more than two hours north of the north London termini and equally accessible from the Midlands and the North with a good range of real ale pubs. That suggests the WCML or ECML, maybe Derby/Nottingham but both Liverpool and Sheffield are within two and half hours of Euston/St P on a good day and only an hour and a bit from New St.

    I realise I could be ignoring those in the far flung south who would have an hour or two to get to KingsX, Euston or St Pancras before breakfast or those northerners who would need about the same time to get into Leeds, York or Manchester.

    A little more central could be Leicester or Burton upon Trent or to be more left field........... Peterborough or Stafford.

    Like last year November would be good for me should anyone get as far as dates. (Birmingham; 12th November 2010, was the last major "do").

    We could of course make it an annual event and alternate between the North, South and Midlands with a once a decade trip to Wales or Scotland or even the Isle of Man

    Tell us, now, how and when
    We may find the bravest men?

    We've already had a few Southern meet ups this year! I'm certainly up for another national shindig if the date and location is kind to me.

    Likewise. Most of October is a write-off for me though.

    The later it is in the year the better it will be for me and I'm up for a trip oop there where the sun don't shine.

    Depends where & when of course, but if midlands, like say Watford , then somewhere with B & B or nearby Travel lodge where I could rest the bonce as I would stay over

    November is more realistic for me.

    If we said Nottingham then Bucking Fastard could moor up his boat and see it from wherever he stands in the pub

    November worked for me last time. Later in the year, train companies probably have more scope for cheaper tickets. If anyone gets wind of some good deals, please pass on the news.
