Think we should do this, especially with RC being deported - has been a long time since our last traditional Round Table + wonkies ritual.

Maybe some people will even travel from afar (to ensure RC can't come back)!

mr_B

I'll be there

Venom will be there

Venom

I'm already there!

I won't be there until September. :(

Ships are an option.

MDA

wooden ships, on the water, very free

Mr. Bas
25-03-2014, 13:16:13
Good plan, and up for it in principle - depending on timing and all that, of course. :beer:

Nav
26-03-2014, 15:06:05
Propose some dates! :)

mr_B

that may be ok

Funko
26-03-2014, 22:26:49
Most of those aren't weekends but June 7th is good

Funko
26-03-2014, 22:27:03
The weekends near those may dates ok too

Mr. Bas
01-04-2014, 08:13:12
As it stands, 9-11 May, 20-22 June and 27-29 June are still completely free, a bunch of other weekends around that time might be possible but not sure yet.

25-27 April, 23-25 May, 30 May-1 June, 6-8 June and 13-15 June are all definitely out for me.

MOBIUS
01-04-2014, 12:40:29
can't do 9-11th May (passing through on the 8th and 12th), as I'll be in France and Belgium looking at WWI stuff but the other weekends are good - basically any weekend is good apart from the above one.

Funko
02-04-2014, 16:21:42
May 2nd is Reading Beer festival.

Mr. Bas
02-04-2014, 17:38:39
Mmm.... beer.

Funko
08-04-2014, 09:03:01
Sorry haven't been here, any other feelings on this?

Mr. Bas
08-04-2014, 11:55:31
I could do the Beer festival, probably not the entire 1-4 May but definitely a day or two. If anyone else is up for it, great - or if many people are up for a meet any of the other weekends I mentioned, that would work for me as well. :beer:

MOBIUS
08-04-2014, 12:52:57
Clearly...:D

Beer festival sounds like a tailor-made excuse for a CG meet.:beer:

Mr. Bas
08-04-2014, 13:59:45
Mike, I guess you'd prefer just the weekend days, right?

Funko
08-04-2014, 14:29:15
I am definitely going on the Friday, that's the best day to go...

Funko
08-04-2014, 14:29:34
I would say multiple days there is a challenge!

Mr. Bas
08-04-2014, 14:54:51
Alright, I hereby confirm that I am in, arriving early afternoon on Friday. That is, if I can claim a bed for a night or two :beer:

Funko
08-04-2014, 15:22:17
Definitely.

I think I might be heading to the Army vs Navy rugby game at Twickenham on the Saturday with work.

Funko
08-04-2014, 15:22:56
That potentially means I could make Saturday evening in London too.

Funko
08-04-2014, 15:36:58
Advance tickets : http://readingbeerfestival.fatsoma.com/

I am probably going to go very soon to opening on the Friday, it's right by the station, so you could come straight there?

Mr. Bas
08-04-2014, 15:38:03
Great, and all fine with me. As I said, I should arrive in Reading on friday early afternoon-ish, and I will be flying back from Birmingham on sunday evening - flexible in the meantime.

Jesjes :beer:

Funko
09-04-2014, 13:00:36
ok cool, the earlier in the afternoon the better. :beer:

Funko
10-04-2014, 08:53:19
Anyone else?

Bas - get an advance ticket, it's just an e-ticket, but there might be a queue by the time you get there and it's priority entry, and ends up cheaper with the beer tokens you get.

Funko
10-04-2014, 09:09:41
and May 3rd in London potentially?

mr_B
10-04-2014, 20:29:17
dammit i am focked up with work till the end of may

Mr. Bas
11-04-2014, 00:11:07
It's a weekend. What are you complaining about? This is not the time to be a cowardly bubbler.

Nav
11-04-2014, 12:55:02
I'm up for May 3rd. Have texted RC to see if he can make it (after all it's supposed to be his leaving do!)

It's great that I predicted the date correctly in my original post.

Funko
11-04-2014, 14:42:29
Yes. Well done.

Funko
11-04-2014, 14:42:54
Bring your laptop Pieter.

Mr. Bas
11-04-2014, 16:38:55
Just to check, the plan is beer festival on the 2nd, and meeting up in London on the 3rd, right? I wouldn't want to Drekkus up my planning, of course.

zmama
11-04-2014, 17:22:59
Sounds like you'll have to get your beer muscles in shape! :beer:

Mr. Bas
11-04-2014, 17:36:44
Luckily, East Germany is the perfect spot to work on that :beer:

Funko
12-04-2014, 06:49:56

correct

MOBIUS
15-04-2014, 09:55:14
Yes

Funko
15-04-2014, 15:16:19
Are you in?

Resource Consumer
24-04-2014, 11:41:19
I will need to check for permission for 3rd May.

Funko
24-04-2014, 12:15:23
I haven't actually got Noisy's phone number :o

Found I am connected with him on LinkedIn so messaged him there if anyone does have his number can they text him?

Resource Consumer
24-04-2014, 22:36:32
I saw Nav's comment above. I am now on a totally different number. He probably texted a granny in Middlesborough

Venom
25-04-2014, 12:14:50
I thought you said you changed numbers?

Resource Consumer
27-04-2014, 23:08:26
Permission has now been granted. What's the arrangement on Saturday? (will probably need to bail early evening-ish)

Funko
28-04-2014, 10:29:54
I have got this Rugby thing in the afternoon so I might only arrive early evening-ish, I hope our paths cross.

Bas is going to be in Reading on Friday, I'll be heading into Twickenham for Rugby around midday-ish. I could stick him on a train to Paddington then?

Bas - do you want a place to stay in Reading on Saturday night too?

My suggestion would be Round Table at 2pm, why break with tradition.

Mr. Bas
28-04-2014, 10:48:45
Err, I guess so. I haven't really thought about planning anything beyond the beer festival.

Funko
28-04-2014, 11:22:27
:lol:

Cool. :beer:

Resource Consumer
28-04-2014, 21:07:22
So, who will we have on Saturday?I f we are inquorate then we could always reschedule.

Qaj the Fuzzy Love Worm
28-04-2014, 22:05:37
I wouldn't mind going to a London meet-up, so long as it's in San Francisco.

Funko
29-04-2014, 08:35:05
So, who will we have on Saturday?I f we are inquorate then we could always reschedule.

Me (later), Bas, you, Will. No sound from Noisy yet? no reply from MOBIUS either.

Funko
29-04-2014, 13:40:56
MOBIUS is TBC, he'll let us know soon.

Funko
01-05-2014, 08:37:35
MOBIUS is coming. If RC isn't going to make it there is the suggestion we just stick in Reading rather than all of us heading into London - Will what do you think?

MOBIUS
01-05-2014, 08:49:22
Good idea!:beer:

Nav
01-05-2014, 21:18:06
Hey, sorry I've been preoccupied with work, up for beers on sat afternoon and eve

Nav
01-05-2014, 21:19:24
Would prefer lo d

Nav
01-05-2014, 23:32:16
Bloody site doesn't work with me phone, who built this shit?!

I'd really prefer London if at all possible, my hip isn't good at the moment. Definately up for beers.

mr_B
02-05-2014, 07:08:29

Hey, I'm travelling all the way from The Land of the Sheepshaggers, not to mention having to pay for the privilege of being let back in - the least you can do is meet me in the middle...:rolleyes:

Any further progress on plans?

MOBIUS
02-05-2014, 12:09:23
PS, hope your hip is OK, I just had a knee op and the trick is to exercise it as much as possible - you would be able to exercise it more by coming to Reading...:cute:

Funko
02-05-2014, 18:37:51
Bas is going to watch the Mighty Reading FC at 12:15pm in Reading, so as MOBIUS arrives he should be about back from that.

I think we'll stick in Reading, really hope you can come Will

Nav
02-05-2014, 23:29:11
Sorry I think I'll have to pass, feeling too knackered, plus even getting to central London is a pain as the fast trains are cancelled this weekend.

Noisy
03-05-2014, 07:54:33
Hey, if Nav's not going then neither am I.

Reading is too difficult to get to. If it was the usual Round Table do then it would be possible.

Funko
03-05-2014, 09:36:00
Ok well I think we should do one of those anyway when Keith can make it?

mr_B
03-05-2014, 22:32:02
I'll be there

Funko
06-05-2014, 11:33:38
Was good. :beer: 8/10

I don't think I explicitly said this before but obviously one of the reasons we were keen to have it in Reading was so Ann could join in, rather than being stuck in Reading with the kids on her own. 3 month old at the Round Table not ideal. :beer:

MOBIUS
06-05-2014, 12:31:04
Great to catch up with everyone, including the new additions!

It was never in any danger of being a 7/10...;)

Also up for a Round Table some time in the future.:beer:

mr_B
07-05-2014, 20:58:32
is there a round table in Cardiff?

Finn Willi (5)
08-05-2014, 09:30:04
I thought only in Camelot...

MOBIUS
08-05-2014, 10:32:23

08-05-2014, 15:51:28
Oh dear. Sorry.

C.G.B. Spender
08-05-2014, 20:04:08
on second thoughts, let's not go to Cardiff - it is a silly place.

Funko
09-05-2014, 08:12:26
So we should go.

MOBIUS
14-05-2014, 15:19:37
Exactly!:beer:
