Celebrate with us, a 10th year mini party?
Posted 24 October 2012 - 09:37
The 27th of October represents the date we officially launched, 5 days from name to launch, our first registered member.
We began as many know with an idea in a pub following a very brisk drive over Lancashire moors. Now 10 years on I thought what a nice way to celebrate, with a pub lunch/meal/drink(orange juice). The original pub is long since gone though.
So on the night of the 27th, this Saturday, does anybody fancy popping out for some food in the Peak District, think Ladybower, Derwent water area?

This is a last minute idea, there will be a bigger party (or two) in 2013 requiring tents, beer and cars, in fact forget the tents.
Will go with the consensus on timings, my preference would be for an evening.
Reply below and I'll keep the thread alive/ PM. Will choose the pub based on numbers, if it's just me I'll go to the Strines

Is it worth combining the two?

Next year, definitely.

However SWMBO has just said there are closures planned for the snake pass at weekends for repairs, shes going to see if she can find out when & where!

It's a bit far to come for an evening, swmbo would not sanction time out or the fuel bill!!!

I appreciate it's a last minute event, but it's only a small token event
Lets meet from 7pm at the Strines Inn > http://www.sheffield...ld/strines-inn/
For anyone after food, they are busiest between 6 and 8, hence the later meet time. I'll be ordering food at 8pm.
For those who have not been to the strines before, take care on the approach, it's a fantastic road even when I borrowed a prius! It's also got bits of oil on it, I cycled it twice this week.
The phone signal up there is poor, if you're coming, please let me know, but not essential, it's a pub after all. Easiest is a txt, 07900 826 101.
There will be more meets, as indicated I'm looking at 2 over 1 central, so one off the M4 corridor (open to suggestions) and another possibly Kendal way to be fair to those from north of Carlisle.
Anyway, till then, Saturday at the Strines from 7pm. I'll be the one who looks knackered if I've cycled there.
A free beer for freedom members, I do remember that moment too... don't tell SWMBO I refused to go shopping this week.

Mind you, with the weather turning we might get some snow in that exposed location and nobody will be able to get there!

Could have done earlier today, but can't do evening due to my sons orchestra arrangements. Have to be seen to support, nurture & all that.......
And trust me, I'd go almost anywhere for free cake and beer, but no chance tonight.

All the more for the ones that do attend then!

However, it appeared that everyone wanted to stay in and either watch Strictly or the X Factor so the cakes that I haven't eaten before Tuesday will be brought down to the Mansfield meet.
