[QUOTE=Robin (The Gadget family);4650576]I'm there's an obscure offence somewhere of 'loitering with a fag, I mean flag, with intent to attract attention'. :p


When we were in the States people found it funny when a Brit asked someone if they could 'bum a fag' :eek:

Oh you guys are sooooo kind. Don't worry I gave up smoking along time ago:p

Robin,

if you were to leave at say 8, you could be there at about 11ish? So if you got up just a bit earlier and left at 7ish, you would have no problem. You would have to go to bed earlier than you have been though:D

cheers for all your kind words,
Carl:thumbup:

Good job Carl did'nt make his faux pa before the Stratford meet, otherwise I'd have just sent the wife & kids.

Still, can't knock it till you've tried it, eh Carl.

We hope to be going on the 28th and having had a mini meet, would recommend anyone who can go, should make the effort.

As we are likely to be day trippers, we will get there hopefully 10.30 - 11.00. Any other day trippers who want to make the most of it could meet up a little earlier and join the main group around lunchtime.

'Just an Idea if anyone is interested.
