Meh. Summer next year maybe!
It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood, who strives valiantly; who errs and comes short again and again; because there is not effort without error and shortcomings; but who does actually strive to do the deed; who knows the great enthusiasm, the great devotion, who spends himself in a worthy cause, who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement and who at the worst, if he fails, at least he fails while daring greatly. So that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory nor defeat.

The 11th is good for me, if that's the date we're converging to
If an opinion contrary to your own makes you angry, that is a sign that you are subconsciously aware of having no good reason for thinking as you do. If some one maintains that two and two are five, or that Iceland is on the equator, you feel pity rather than anger, unless you know so little of arithmetic or geography that his opinion shakes your own contrary conviction. … So whenever you find yourself getting angry about a difference of opinion, be on your guard; you will probably find, on examination, that your belief is going beyond what the evidence warrants.

11th sounds like the best option for me as well. :)

So have we come down on the side of confirming the date as the11th then? The general consensus would appear to be going in that direction. And some of our contingent do need to make travel and accomodation plans, after all...

Yeah, I also wanted to ask - is it safe to start booking flights for 11th or are the other options still being discussed...?

That was my kitten replying to the above :)

We could possibly make the 11th - it will depend on trains etc, but work on the assumption that if we can get there, we will.

Right then:

The 11th is now confirmed as the date of the, what 5th or 6th annual Merry Manky Meet Up?

Let's start getting some confirmation of what is going down and who is comming.

Last year was a little hit and miss, the Christmas market turned out to be a woefully ill judged idea, so apologies for that.

Assuming we want to end up in Fab Cafe by around 8pm at the latest, the central issue remains food and where to get it. I think the Athaneum has worked quite well in the past so that's one option, we hit the Slug and Lettuce on year, but that can be a little busy.

So what we need is:

A place to muster, a wapontak if you like that is easy to find. I know we've used Kro Piccadilly in the past, and it is fine, but it's a bit shit after more than a couple of hours.

A place to go to for a bit in the afternoon, preferably somewhere large enough that we can get seats and eat when we feel like it.

Suggestions.

Pretty sure I can make the 11th (there is an ever dimishing chance I may be in California but I'm keeping my fingers crossed). I might travel up on the Friday afternoon if anyone wants to do owt on Friday night. This time, I'm SURE I won't be dying on the Sunday. I'm sure of it!! I do have self control. I do I do I do I do I do.

So, if I end up going (fingers crossed) I'll probably take the train up from cambridge with Bill and Hazel. I can't afford an hotel room I think, so if there's anyone with a couch available for Saturday night I'd be grateful.

Chuck Norris really must have roundhouse kicked a hole in time and space, because for sure that statement above is the product of an evil Mezla from an alternate dimension. :) :(

@Morgy
How can you not afford a hotel room? Norway could buy and sell the UK twice over with spare change from the back of the couch. I think you just want to spend quality floor time with Toby again. :)
