I will try to attend any date prior to July 21st, and any date after Sept 6/7, Queenie wants some stuff done in Afghanistan.

Two dates sounds good.

Beer festival on this weekend in Somerset!  Stand-by all for some drunken drivel later in the weekend!

this is stupid....

Why don't we just email everyone about their up to date availability....

For example DoT just come back from a few days away from the forum...  and what about people like AL, Mrs Pig etc....  it's a much more efficient way of getting people's availability...

I know it might be democratic and the way the forum has always done it but I'm not travelling for miles to sit on Exmouth Beach with a bunch of strangers if its a date that none of my friends can make.  Sorry.

Go for it Nam.  If you have the time to contact them, but the thing is, I don't.  It's a big task, finding out the dates everyone can do, then finding the one that suits most.  I'm trying numerous different methods of selecting a date, and each one gets shot down in flames.

People to contact:
Garr
Hope
Kittenkat
Do2
MikeFrog
Cookie
Mrs Pig
NightNurse
Allrover
AL
Hashette
Broken Bones
Nam

Smurf (is that his name?)
Pea

OK I'll do a mailshot now to all the emails I have...  can people please forward the mail to those not included...

I think it may be easier to ask people when they are NOT available rather than when they ARE as hopefully it'll mean fewer dates, which we can then exclude and pick a date when most are available?

Why don't whoever of you is available meet on whatever date you can and the next weekend do the same and the next weekend do the same etc etc etc.

Or is this thread trying to win  The Hardest To Organise Cos We Are All Being Democratic Social" Award 2008??

Still, its keeping the rest of the Forum amused!

Would you like me to copy you into the mail Min...

Instead of meeting up, we could all just talk to each
other on some kind of online website on the internet?

It'd never work Mike - electronic communication is far too fraught with misunderstandings etc!
