    I think everyone agreed that last year's meet-up was a great day out. It would be a shame not to make it an annual event. 'oldboots' thoughts pretty much echo my own as far as the logistics of train travel are concerned. To that end, I came up with Derby and Nottingham as provisional venues this year. Bearing in mind the neutrality of the second city, another possibility would be to return to Birmingham again, but visit a completely different set of pubs. However, I appreciate it possibly wouldn't be quite as magical as last year. In any case, nice to see the ball rolling.

    November would be good for me, i think, assuming i survive the next round of budget cuts. Derby, Burton or Notts sound fine, but Birmingham is a little far when on the 51 bus! i can still hear the screaming kids.

    Thanks for the idea Andy,however I wouldn't be too popular with the punters or management if I arrived there with my coal burning stove going on a cold November evening.

    Back to the point,a November meet up in Derby,Burton or Nottingham would suit very well.

    To cement a growing trend November is preferable for me also..

    Also no problem with Derby, Burton or Nottingham except that Mr fastard's and my track record of getting anywhere by train is currently not good as we almost didn't make Ware last Saturday because some Toe Rag had the copper cable away on the First Capital Connect line to East Herford and we had to resort to replacement buses...
    So Boat may be a better option...

    We seem to moving towards a consensus so let me throw in a suggestion and see who agrees (or suggests an alternative):

    Nottingham.

    Friday 11th November.

    Meet up at the VAT & Fiddle (nearest GBG pub to the train station).
    Waes hael!

    Although I would prefer Sheffield for the obvious reason, Nottingham in November sounds OK too.
