Cool CG Meet - London? May 2nd/3rd?

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)!

Good plan, and up for it in principle - depending on timing and all that, of course.

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.

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.

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.

Clearly...

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

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.

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?

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.

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.

I saw Nav's comment above. I am now on a totally different number. He probably texted a granny in Middlesborough

Permission has now been granted. What's the arrangement on Saturday? (will probably need to bail early evening-ish)

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.
