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

Yes, location was the best thing about the KIngs WhatNot in WhereEverItWas the year before. One of the reasons I thought ti worth a look, be nice to be able to find a touch of civilisation within easy walking distance.

Worth asking Bobalong or Bunker Hill - they seem to know the area pretty well? By the way - heard that Natterjack had moved to York. Now there's a nice place!

Completely and utterly irrelevant, but there's an interesting feature on Natterjack's dad in the new Sussex Wildlife Trust magazine.

Natterjack may be too busy soaking up Yorkshire (t'biggest an' t'best) culture to quit his post for a weekend.

Re: ***** 1-2 April 2011 EuroWeenie - Finalised *****
« Reply #20 on: October 26, 2010, 08:05:46 AM »
 :)   Okeh weenies this is what I have tentatively agreed... same hotel as last year and the weekend is now fixed as Friday 01 - Saturday 02 April 2011.

Hotels rates as before and with only a ?5 increase which we can't really complain about. I realise it's faded country house glory and it would be nice to be able to eat elsewhere, but they have given us a good rate compared to everything else around and we do get a free function room for the two nights.

Twin/double rooms to include Full English Breakfast, Table d?hote Dinner and VAT at ?125.00 per room per day - that price is for two people.

For single occupancy the rate for Dinner, Bed and Breakfast will be ?78.00.

>>>> Could you please give me an indication that you will be attending as I promised the manager I would confirm with him by the end of this week and have provisionally held 12 rooms, so if I know we have at least half of them taken we will be onto a safe bet  :-X

Please do NOT book yet or through this link as you will not get the agreed rate, I will put up the hotels direct tel number shortly.

Should be there.

It did occur to me that we could drive / taxi into town one evening for a more exciting meal, but I guess that would mess with the inclusive rate and get very complicated- so all good.

I'll be there, all being well. Mrs. Parlor Picker will not, having commented that one Weenie Weekend was enough for her(!). I'll chase up rick218.

Thanks for that weenies and please keep adding your intention to attend to this thread.

From the look of it we should OKeh and I will ask them to hold 10 rooms initially as we did last year. I will email them tomorrow to confirm the rates and say it's all go, then once it's confirmed from their end I'll dig out the phone number and you can all get booking direct :)

NS as for a meal out, I agree it would be nice but since we seem to be geting the rooms at about 2/3 the going rate elsewhere, including the free function rooms I think politically we should eat there - it wasn't that bad was it... or was it  :-X

PP I can't imagine why Mrs PP would not wish to attend, especially as I heard she was a closet banjo player  :P

Richard, and all of you UK weenies - I think this is so cool that Euroweenie is turning out to be a regular event and that getting organized for the next one seems so easy to do!  And given the time, money, yadda yadda - I  really do plan to attend some year.  So keep up the good work and good vibe!  Very impressive!

It's not necessarily all that easy, Slack. So big thanks to Richard (at times aided and abetted by Blueshome) for all the time and effort put into organising the event.
