    Well seeing as we had people from all over the country there today, how about Stratford-upon-Avon ?

    Pete, Adrian, Colin, Liam, Emlyn, Neal, Jim, Steve, Martin, Frankie etc

    We could have a look round the town on the Sunday as well (always seems quite nice when we're driving through it to Shakespeare)

    What about the Arctic? You'd have an n-ice time there. Anyway, I don't do Christmas anything so it's the one meet I tend to avoid like the plague.

    So to start the night off all park in the hotel car park get a mini buss etc up to toby carvery after meal out round Barnsley for lots of beers and the best thing you'll get smashed for 20 and have a takeaway at the end of the night for that

    Doesn't matter where it is, it won't suit all. I've got no suggestions than maybe a day meet at a go kart track or something before the evening event...?
