Count me in Steve!

Either date.

I have some stuff to present (finally!) Although my amp is currently a bit broken. (I hate it when the smoke gets out) :oops:

Can't do this November. Glue holding the bits of my leg together won't have set by then...

We could probably do it too - we'd need to rent a vehicle if bringing the Mets though. 300B's are do-able in the Lexus as long as I bring the sack trolley. I'll consult with Meredith.

20th is probably better than the 27th for us, as the latter is just after Thanksgiving.

Hi Steve - I've talked to Meredith and having thought about it, I'm afraid we'll have to bow out this year.

We're both still a bit concerned about this new Covid delta variant. Even though we've both had the jab, we haven't stopped trying to take reasonable precautions not to catch it in the first place. We are occasionally socialising in small numbers, but still largely avoiding big gatherings in enclosed spaces, especially with winter on its way.

Thought I'd better mention this now whilst you're still totting up numbers.

Thanks for that, no problem..

I'd prefer the 27th, but I'd not rule out the 20th.

I'm popping in on Monday so hopefully able to report back on the accommodation

But I would not hold back on checking hotel availability.

I'll start another thread once I've been on Monday
Thanks
Steve

Been in today, it all looked very similar dispite the refurb..

Confirmed the booking for 27th november

Checked out the accommodation upstairs.. my view is it's more suitable for a wedding party
There is a kitchen, the main living room with 2 x sofa beds.
One bedroom with a 4 poster double, and a 2nd bedroom with 2 x double beds
it's £500 a night.. and you walk through the living room to the main bedroom.

I'll start a thread later with all the names that have commited so far on it, if there's any problem booking hotel accommodation let me know asap..

I can just see Phil and Dave, sharing the 4-poster bed, like Morecambe and Wise.
