Nice - Excelsior games will likely give us a few days notice on theirs. On a side note, I was speaking to Jim on Sunday and he mentioned that they will be getting the kit!

Looking at all the dates so far I'd like to see some in late March and late January to avoid any clashes and maybe have a week or so between events as I've still got to get the wife on board with going to so many events in a row.

I have the same problem as Simon and need to space out events in order to have enough brownie points!

Need more details before I decide really. I have relatives in Poole and It would be really practical to go but 60 minute rounds makes the game a coin toos and a waste of time.
Anywhere rockin' 75 and is easy to get to by bus or I can blag a lift really.

lol, I am looking to sort out a car soon so hopefully if I get that sorted I'm up to driving to pretty much any one of them, I'm up for the Poole one if you fancy it, 60 min rounds is a bit gay, basically means its gonna be a big ship fest. I'm still up for it if you fancy the trip?

4 wheels eh? good work!

Nothing wrong with being gay. Everything wrong with 60 minute games. It's a ball ache of a drive moind, no decent route...

60 Minutes does play into my love of the big ships.
There was a discussion on FB about some places doing 45min rounds. I wouldn't even bother if a store was doing that.

Even 60 is a ball ache when you up against a slightly slower player

so today I booked off work all the dates listed above. I will put a note next to each I am free for & up for going to, then if people could let me know who else is interested that would be great, might put a separate thread up for each one to keep it from getting muddled up

Blackminster and Bournemouth are on the same day so won't be able to go to both of those. Bournemouth is closer to me so that will be my first choice.
