Okay, so we kinda set a date of September 6th... but where do we go?

I personally think Winchester (our spiritual home) or Brum (cos it's somewhere in the middle). I put Manc up there too cos I know it was first mentioned, but I dun think it's fair cos I'm prolly in the best position to travel out of everyone...

So, let's pick a venue an do this!

Oh, an I'll be takin along me digital camera so I can get loads o piccies of everyone! biggrin.gif

Birmingham would be a LOT easier being as most trains go directly to New Street Station (for thos of us who don't drive) So I voted B'ham.

And now I'm off to bed. Night my lovelies

I'm not fussed so i nulled my vote, i can go pretty much anywhere, though somewhere central to all of us might be good

Well, I put Winchester being as I live there, but depending on who is likely to want to come from where Birmingham is pretty simple to get to from just about anywhere.

Well, I've voted Winchester because, well... I live here and that means it's _really_ easy to get to for me.

Birmingham and Manchester are also pretty easy, Birmingham would be the second choice really since it's closer.

I can travel by train without too much trouble and if Brum is easiest for everyone else then that's fine by me too.

I will say this though: Winchester is really pretty and a lovely place to visit, I'm not so sure if you can say the same about Brum (although it does have a very grand square and a superb city gallery).

Also Winchester is compact and therefore simple to find misplaced forum bods in...

Not really - its on one of the main train lines, and virtually all of the trains going through stop here.

Personally Manchester was best for me but if I had to choose then I'd say Birmingham as a second choice. I can't make it to Winchester from Sheffield that weekend I'm afraid sad.gif

Drarok and I know our way around pretty well. I know a great pub/bar that's quiet and yet groovy enough for us all to hang out (minors don't drink of course) called Scruffy Murphys and there's also lots of shops if the group want to split and go shopping and then arrange to meet later.

Well I know Brum very well as I lived there for 4 years (3 of which were while I was at Uni). I love the place and WeeJ is right the shopping is excellent and so is Scruffy's (I remember it now!!). I have got people I can stay with so Birmingham is cool by me.

Sam and I could be your tour guides!!!! laugh.gif

Anyway, Its pretty easy to find your way around Birmingham and to be simple...we could meet at new street as there's lots of cafe's where we can all wait for each other. We'de need some sort of sign to indicate to people that 'this is the Matazone' group.

Birmingham also probably means not as many people will have to find over night accomodation
