    Since theres been talk about doing a joint meet in Blackpool and also in Whitby.
    So I thought I'd start the prep for Blackpool. As theres going to be a lot on this year the best time would be some time at the end of the year, which is also when the Blackpool Illuminations are on (31 August - 4 November 2007) But we could always do it in 2008

    I think to do this would be best done over a weekend as there is a load of things we could do there, but if people just want to make it a one day thing then we can go down that path. I have looked into a possible place to stay though, Blackpool Central which is just round the corner from Blackpool Pleasure Beach

    When I was looking for somewhere to eat I did find this place which looked good.

    Places to go and things to do:

    Sealife Centre
    The Solaris Centre-Centre for Environmental Action
    Grundy Art Gallery
    Stanley Park
    Blackpool Tower
    The Sandcastle
    The Piers
    Doctor Who Museum
    Plus there is so much more that I could list....

    Looks good Coz. I'm up for anything, so I'll just keep an eye on this and see if I can make it when we decide on a date.
    I like the look of the eating place too!

    Well we've got loads of time to work a date so it's all good :)

    When I was looking for a place that did meat and veggie dishes, I saw that and thought it would be worth checkijng out.

    Thanks for doing all the research, Cozmic.

    I'd personally prefer a summer meet-up if we do Blackpool. We can hang out and enjoy the Sun and not have to wrap up warm. And it would have to be 2007 :p I don't wanna wait till 2008 ;)

    But, if we do Blackpool in the summer, would anyone want to do Whitby first, or would they prefer it for after Blackpool?

    Your welcome Sie :) Summers good but I was worried about it being to near to CE and I didn't want them to clash at all. Thats why I thought we should go with a later date, you'd get to see the Blackpool Illuminations that way.

    Not really bothered if we do Whitby first, never been so it be nice to go there.

    I thought it was the law that you'd had to have fish and chips at a seaside town :p

    Harry Ramsden's ain't that good anyway, they don't do group bookings there and the menu sucks.


    Nothing wrong with a proper chippy :p
