We could look for a nearby pool for an hour and have a Pirate 400m swim championships, throw in some team relays and it would be good fun.

PSOF Swim Gala !

Barley - you'll be delighted to learn that the only pool I'm aware of that is open at 0530 weekdays (all the others open at 0630) doesn't open until 0800 on Sundays.  So you're quite safe

Saturday afternoon, however, we could all go to the new 50m pool (assuming that the boom is mended) but it's not 50m until 5.30pm which is kinda late for beautification for the evening.

What about pre-drinks bombing around Ashton Court on mountain bikes for Saturday afternoon (didn't Little Sis suggest that somewhere?) and then a bit of light swimming on Sunday mid morning?

I'm not sure there'd be many hotels thank us for turning up with muddy bikes, especially if it was the red mud from Ashton Court!! Although I do have a mini, 12V jet washer I could bring along!!

Its all sounding like a plan  

05/09/2012 at 16:17

Buffet- yes fine with that.

Would it be possible to divulge the postcode of the venue so I can start looking at nearby hotels/B+B?

I'll probably be letting the train take the strain so no biking for me on Saturday

I will defer that question to my 2IC

Happy to house any bikes in my garage overnight, Lil Sis.  Or we could go swimming on Saturday afternoon anyway, there's plenty of 25m pools, it would just have been nice to showcase our new one in full effect.

We can have more thoughts/discussions nearer the time!

Sorry FeFe - assuming that people are happy to have the venue with the buffet then we're looking at Park Street, which is BS1.

Somewhere, I posted a few hotels, possibly page 2?

So, roll up, roll up please add your names to the list.  It will be fun, promise.

And we're nice, honest we are.

Oh and if you're on the train, you'll want Bristol Temple Meads and not Bristol Parkway, Mr Ferret, sir.

I just love it when a plan comes together

Thanks Mousey for sorting and let me know when you want the £10's and I will make sure Barley pays you

There is a new Hilton thingy in town that should be cheap. Or we block book a dorm at the Half Moon (I think)?
