***** EuroWeenie 2011 ****
« on: September 10, 2010, 09:48:50 AM »
Just to,let you know I intend making a trip over to have look at a few hotels in about a month so would ask that if you think you will be attending to put a post here so I can have some idea of numbers for this grande eventette.

As to dates, I know not Although it's going to be around mid-end March 2011 and I am leaving that to Phil to sort out so it does not conflict with and EBA events or whatever.

Keep watching this space and don't forget to register your interest  :D

Easter is very late in 2011 so we may be able to move Euroweenie to a later date in the hopes of better weather. I'm suggesting  1/2nd April or 8/9th April according to hotel availability.

Let's hear how these suit.

All being well, I'll be there.  I'll chase up rick218 as well, who was unable to attend this year due to family illness.

Me too - though I expect to be a retired codger by then (i.e. jobless and penniless) - so we'll have to see....

Looks like we've got a quorum!

Let's aim for 1/2 April subject to hotel availability. Go Richard!!!!

Are we looking at the New Forest area again or branching out to a new location?

Let's aim for 1\2 April weekend, I think the New Forest area again seems to suit with the poximity of the aeroporto, si?

I have started a trawl around the net for hotels and starting is the hard part, we may end up at last years but there might be something a little less faded!

For what it's worth I thought faded was good.

I agree with Scratchy. Also the staff at the hotel were friendly and welcoming. You could try for a better deal as we are returning guests. But if you can find something as good that's even cheaper...

I agree with that.  Last year's place was fine (though I wasnt particularly impressed with the food).  If we can do better, then great, but theres certainly no need to look too hard just for the sake of it.

Would be nice to have a bar a bit closer to the function room though!

Simon - you can't have heard the news. No alcoholic drinks next year. You know how it is, rules is rules. Which reminds me, how did Lewis sneak that banjo-thing in this year? And why did I like what he did with it?

Tell you what...a local curry house or Chinese would be good (preferably the former)...
