I suggest that, if we haven't heard from mirrorboy in a couple of weeks, we should abandon this option and look for another venue. Otherwise we'll all be dead before this convention happens......

Sorry I took so long to post. I've been wrestling with a couple of concerns about the venue.

Five pubs closing daily in the UK means I must have a backup plan. I can also have the use of a nice concert room in a nearby club but we'd have to be out by 7pm.

The pub only does food to order now so I think it might become too complicated to arrange that. Both venues are close to restaurants, takeaways and macdonalds

I'm still serious about hosting it unless anyone else has a better idea. I need your thoughts. Post away!

P.S. What and when is an International Weekend?

Welcome back Mirrorboy! The concert room in the club would be fine for me!

As I said in the PM, I would be happy to assist in any whay I can, let's see if we can fix a date and we can sort out the details.

Thank you JohnA, your help would be much appreciated.

My main reason for offering these venues as possiblities for this inaugaral "UK Tokai Owners' Convention" is that both venues have excellent car parking facilities, and I've also had to bear in mind the potential turnout for this event. I mean how long is a piece of string?

Wherever we hold it, I reckon we have to fix on a date first of all and then invite members to register their interest on here to get a better idea of the likely numbers. Personally, I have no commitments so far this year so any date would suit me fine.

Over to you guys

Agreed. How much in advance should this be - in other words how much notice do the organisers need? 2 months? 3?

I don't really think there is a lot to organise, mostly it will be down to peoples availability.

Anyone for March 7th, first Saturday in March?

I can do that date, but I wondered if giving a bit more notice would make it easier for some people to commit to the date? Especially people who live abroad but might want to attend.

In some respects it's easier to plan short-term, I know where I'll be this weekend, but not three months down the line. Lets go with that date until someone objects. I'll start a new thread to get a list of names together and drop Ned a note and see if he can make it a sticky.

I agree and, although I wouldn't have to give much notice, obviously the date would have to be confirmed with the venue.

Ok, give that a try. I'll keep an eye out for any objections and I'll check availability on Mar 7 for both venues tonight.

Well, looks like I will be free on the 7th so it would be good to go with that date if possible.

International football weekend means there is no prem league games so it doubles the chance of me being able to make it - 14th Feb was next I think but valentines would be a problem for the romantics and henpecked among us. 28th March is another clear day but not sure if that was an FA Cup date - but that does not matter now.

Roll on the 7th! Am I OK to bring my roadie? My Brother in Law (he who carved the dragon guitar) says he would like to attend and would be useful to have carrying guitar cases, especially if I have a baby with me!! (Don't worry she is very well behaved).

Weather permitting also!!!
