Hi fellow sclonching candidates,
 
Having checked with the keeper of the diary, I find the following:
 
Available dates at the moment:
 
Tues 23/11
Mon 29/11 - Sat 4/12 inclusive
Mon 6/12 - Fri 10/12 inclusive
Mon 13/12 - Fri 20/12 inclusive
 
(I say "at the moment" because things like Christmas events are bound to start coming up soon - so the sooner we can fix a date the better, as far as I'm concerned!)
 
Your old pal,
 
Secret

Hi Sclonch
 
Gosh - how flattering to be a sine qua non thingy - though I'm certain it's unjustifiable really!
 
Well, I've consulted The Boss and it seems I might be allowed out to play on the the following dates (all inclusive):
 
November: Friday 19th to Sunday 21st
November: Friday 26th to Sunday 28th
December: Friday 10th to Sunday 12th
 
[isn't it good when everything lines up like that!]
 
I could bring some bits and pieces from my little Atkin Museum, if you like - I think MoM has seen most of them, and JtJ some, but if other Sclonchmen may like to be distracted for a few moments by one or two rare Midvodian artefacts...?
 
Just tell me where to go (most people do!) and when.
 
Looking forward to it.
 
Andy

Hi All
 
We can make any of the dates Andy suggests except for Friday 19th.
 
We'd prefer Friday 26th or 10th followed by Saturday 27th or 11th.
 
Regards

Schlonch Date?
« Reply #23: 16.11.04 at 12:22 »

Hi there!
 
It would appear that the best date for everyone is....
 
Friday 26 November 2004.
(At time of writing, this is the Friday after next).
 
May I suggest you put this date in your diaries (before we wait for objections, if any)?
 
More details of the venue (and how to find it) soon.
 
But now....
 
....a pause for reaction (if any).

I object! I'm definitely not available on that date (I won't even be in England, let alone Herts). I demand a recount!

Following up my own objection, I've had a look at the dates everyone has said they're available/not available and the only possible day that seems to suit everyone is...
 
FX: envelope being opened, pause, expectant hush
 
...Friday 10th December.
 
Now - is there anyone here that can't make that date? If not, I propose we go for that.
 
Cheers
 
Paul

Friday 10th works for me too, in fact better than the 26th.

I prefer the 10th too, the 26th is already taken.

Sorry to cast a possible slight damper on proceedings, but if the pub caters for office christmas parties people wanting to eat may be disappointed.

Presumably those of us who wish to eat will know this now so we could book.  Over to our juggling convenor ...

It appears we have a date.
If the venue is to be The Hollybush in Redbourn, then here are directions to it and a map:

This map gets in a little closer:

Hello Sclonchers
 
I'm designated driver from Leighton Buzzard so if you'd like a lift and aren't too far off the beaten track, get in touch.
 
Any feel for what time we're gathering?

Hi there!
 
How about 7pm for the eaters....
And 8 pm for the meeters?
 
Or is that too early for people on a Friday?
 
8pm for the eaters....
9pm for the meeters?
 
Or is that too late?
 
Huh

How about a compromise - 7.30 and 8.30. It'll take a good half hour to get served anyway so starting at 7.30 means we probably won't start eating before 8 anyway.

Hi there!
 
Just noticed this conversation is dominating the "last 100 postings" list.
Hope that's Ok.
 
Now we have a date, venue and time (almost) agreed....
 
Let's also say that anyone else is welcome to come too.
 
We'll be the group in the corner all dressed as Pete Atkin at various times in his musical career.
 
Don't forget....I'm doing 1970 and am actively seeking a gypsy caravan and paisley scarf.
 
No, only Joe King!   Wink
