Wednesday night is good for me, too. We need to book, since it is usually packed.

I can definitely do next week. Week after forget it until end March
Do you want someone to text Churchy as he's presently banned?

I PMed Spod, and CM, but if you've got his number then drop him a message. Dunno if he's still in this neck of the woods.

TickTock's not been seen round these parts since the Christmas do. Perhaps we scared him off.

HyperD says he's up for it.

I'm convinced Churchy is getting banned on purpose to ensure he doesn't have to meet us again, plus he's embarrassed because of the kicking I gave him in the carpark afterwards.

Looks like you can book online - even better - I don't have to speak to anyone :)


What time is good? I'm off on Wednesday, so pretty flexible. If people are coming straight from the office, we probably should go for early rather than late - how's 6:30?

If Scruff is driving I can call shotgun but I will need either a crane to get me out of his Boxster or 15 minutes notice and some nice cream to rub on my back.

But not MF's again...

I could have used the Panzerwagen (BOOM!), but it is sitting laid up in my garage at the moment...I can't use either of the lawn tractors, too (I am reconditioning the engines).

So, its either your legs or squeeze your Lancashire Body into the Beetle, again?:tantrum:

Fine! Let's get there ten minutes early though so I can plan how to get out of the front seat. I'm thinking hands and knees this time, I'm thinking it's a whole lot more dignified than my previous effort...

I would imagine everyone else works a single job within standard British Hours. You however work both British and Californian hours to induce an early death via heart attack..

I could assume Wednesday, but until confirmed it was conjecture and open to assumption.

This may be sadly true.
