I have already contacted Cake asking  for any good venues and am waiting for a call back from Ponds Forge (50m swimming pool) about hosting the championship

 

SA, we're going to get mixed up and confused if two people are tripping up trying to organise it.

As I said ive already spoken to Aitch and a few other people before starting the thread, there is talk of a bike event so swimming may not be a definite?

Have you started ringing around hotels for prices yet?

 

 

barley.surely you need a date and a venue before trying to phone hotels

Can I be added to the list please as long as dates fit, not the kit off list though 

I'd suggest Birmingham as a central location, but its a S*it hole.

 If we're going to Sheffield, will the boys do this for us?

I thought there was going to be food at this do?  I'd quite like to hang on to mine after I've eaten.

Just for some local info these places are very good

Devoncat Do christmas bookings posh foodie place this pub is round the corner and has a late licence and very good music northern soul/indy ect.. Taken Q there in the past if you want to ask someone else that it's good.

Good food pub but out of town a little fat cat

Good bar with food and also pool tables might work best for everyone and near several decent night clubs. West street is nearby and got a lot of pubs for a pub crawl some of which are full of chav's some are brilliant.

If you want to make a day of it a road going out of the city called Ecclesall road has some very nice restaurants and bar's it's also a good road to use to get into the peak distract and there is park run there on a saturday morning. Other park run in sheffield is at Hillisborough park and is run by Runningowl who you might have meet on the threads. Be warned if you want to do some training in sheffield it's not flat.

If you do go for sheffield and folks need to crash somewhere have spare beds but live about 11 miles out of the city centre so would be an expensive taxi. More than welcome through and got a couple of bottles on standby anyway for when Jo and Q comes back from Florida.

I'm out tomorrow night Meldy so I will try and push back my alcohol tolerance levels.

My tolerance levels in general seem to be doing remarkably well at the moment
