Right you lot - suggested days for the next meet up:-

Sat: April 26th (the Friday is a Anzac Day B/H so long w/end) (for some)! or
Sat: May 3rd (another B/H w/end all good)!

It will prob be at Red Beret again, depends how many are interested with families who have young children, as it is a good venue for that, its good for Mums and Dads too, well, it has got a bottle shop attached to the pub

If not many kids then another venue could be ok. Its just that not many offer facilities to occupy the kids like the Red Beret does. They have it sussed, keep the kids happy and Mummy and Daddy are happy and drink more (if not driving of course)!!!

Anyway guys and gals - there it is so await your responses

After our PM's thought you couldn't make it anyway? The last one was not on a bank holiday and we know why you didn't make that one dont we Richard

Personally, I thought it was a good idea for the lucky people who actually take bank holidays to be more relaxed and have a really good time, Or should I say, recovery time

We will see if it suits the majority if not, will change it. It is not easy to organise a meet up as you know, but I will not give up just yet as the people that do bother to turn up really enjoy themselves so the effort is worth it

Wheres that wicked sense of humour you have Richard? I know you have one but never see it on here Do us all a favour, lighten up and show it! I do wonder sometimes if you have taken a course in 'How to piss people off in less than 25 words'

Have a good day
