Discussion in 'North' started by Spike2002, Apr 22, 2007.
Should we suggest a date for this??? A Saturday perhaps?
A Saturday would be good.
And speaking of Subway, I missed my sub on Saturday night in Durham 'cos we were running late for our taxi
So are we still doing this and the meet for your B'day Sie?
Yes. Bday curry mid month, Durham the weekend (or two) after.
Or we could do Durham early July. Durham is one of those meets we can shuffle around to suit ourselves
No prob, though I might have to do one and miss the other but I'll see closer to the time.
Aye. Well, I can't move me birthday But Durham can be moved about. Our big concern is, as always, money. I can't expect everyone to fork out for meets/events all the time. Plus there's Al's charity event that we'll be attending (30th June). You know, I think I'll change the title to Summer 2007 and let everyone else decide when we have a window
Don't forget this might be Jase's last big meet (aside from CE) so we'll need to do this before Aurgust
Well wont he be busy with his new youngling soon?
Sorry, my brain was switched off. Yes, you're right of course.
Did say to you about that a few weeks ago Sie
I think it's gonna be all change after August, and some people may be less active (I am on a "wait and see" for myself), which is a real shame but tis life.
So I am up for this meet asap, especially since my best pal Jase will be too busy training new jedi in the ways of the potty and such. Plus I have to really check my expenditure when it comes to going to places further afield than NW, so bigger meets like Durham or Glasgow are definitely worthwhile.
As long as the North lives on, I'll be happy.
Next thing would be to think of some Names for his youngling !
Im Happy to go with what ever Saturday you come up with for a Durham meet
Dude, the North can't die
Dont worry about me....I'll just be 'out of action' probably from beginning of Oct to end of November....for my 'Youngling Tutorials'
I have my orders...
Could we not have the Durham meet on Sie's birthday??
Have a meet and birthday meal on the same weekend, therefore it may be more worthwhile for people to come up (not that your b/day isn't worthwhile on its own, Sie, but I'm sure u know what I mean) Just a thought......
We could do I suppose.
But I don't know any curry places in Durham
We could always travel to BA from Durham for the meal....? It's not that far.....
But how would we all get there from Durham?
True. There are bus services (if we don't have enough cars for driving) that pop up every hour or so from Durham to Bish.
Well, I could bring the car, so I can take 4 people....
I know of one or two curry house in Durham - But I could eat something other than Curry
I know this might be a problem just for me but when sorting out my tickets, where would I be heading to and where would I be returning from?
Let's send Coz somewhere funny ... it'll be like a Stag Do without a stag!
If we did an Indian restaurant in Durham, here's a list - http://www.durhamtourism.co.uk/eat_indian.html
However, just mentioned something to Sie, he's happy with the idea, so I'll post it here.
If we had the Durham meet on Sat morning/daytime (that would mean me coming up on Fri and staying in Durham) then, well all get on a bus (or some in a car, whatever is planned) and head for Bishop Auckland for a curry in Sie's hometown. Then after the curry people head to Sie's house for films/fun/etc and people stay over till Sunday when everyone gets kicked out. I'd stay somewhere till Monday morning, then travel back home.
I think it's workable, what would be the best thing for me. Should I just get a open return to Durham, then just pay my way from Bishop to Darlo on the way back?
