I'm still a tentative yes, but my planning skills are very bad indeed. Count me in for now, I'll let you guys know at earliest convenience if I can't make it.

Clara was bold enough to comment:

I do - it involves chocolate, so the answer is automatic!

I'm up for the visitation, but I reserve the right to berate Lenny Henry soundly if I see him strutting his stuff on the streets of Birmingham.
I reserve the right to punch Piers Morgan too, right on the snoot, but thats taken for granted anywhere I go.

I've heard, and it may be dirty lies, but I have heard that there's a sea life centre in Birmingham. Now surely we have to squeeze that in to the schedule?

Surely we ought to visit it at least briefly, to check for purple-nosed squid?

Excuse me for mentioning it, but can I interest you in a panoramic print of York - http://www.panoramicyork.co.uk ? No? Oh well - just thought I'd ask.

I'll have to wing it for now I'm afraid. Not very committal of me. I know I can't do Saturday though - it depends on funds and hangover on the morning after my mate's birthday.

For the best band in Leeds, honest.

Roooaaaaarrr!!!

Ahhh - now I understand why you sent me your name and address. I should probably send you a cheque then. Sorry...

And received!

Also I need to know who wants to do the Cadbury World thing. You'd need to make it to Brum by around 1-2pm to squeeze it in.

I have no particular interest in chocolate, but I'm happy to do whatever the group wants to do. Wherever we are will merely be a backdrop for the meet, after all

Cheque in the post today. Apologies for the slight delay in replying - I've been in Berlin!!!

EDIT: I notice Deanery is still a TBC. I shall utilise my sharp elbow to prod him in the direction of a confirmation.

OK Folks it's time to get organised!

IF YOU ARE COMING, PLEASE SUPPLY THE FOLLOWING INFORMATION!
This will greatly aid us in knowing what / who to expect, and will allow us to plan a fun weekend rather than have to work on a spur-of-the-moment basis.

* Whether or not you've sent your ?29 to Spanners
* What time you feel you can realistically meet up in Birmingham
* How much you want to go to Cadburys World
* IF you have any knowledge of Birmingham or if you'll be lost from the start like me.


MY INFO:
* Yes, I've paid
* Can get there anytime necessary but would rather not have to be there before say midday.
* No preference about chocolate, happy to go with the group
* No knowledge of Birmingham whatsoever, will be utterly lost without shepherding.


Spanners, could you suggest an easy-to-find pub near Birmingham train station at which we can congregate?

It may also be a good idea for us to share some mobile numbers around in case anyone gets lost / stranded. I'm on 07905 801685. Before setting off for the meet, print this thread out or jot down some numbers in case you get lost.

How about, as a start-off point and to be altered according to responses - we aim to meet at 1pm in the pub Spanners suggests. We may need to split into 2 factions - the chocolate visitors, and those left at the pub to welcome stragglers and latecomers. I'll volunteer for the latter group if it's needed.

Okay - no I haven't sent my ?29 I'm having trouble finding a cheque book... Any chance of a paypal account or something similar?

I believe it's a couple of hours to get to Birmingham, so I can get there anytime, but equally would prefer later - 1pm should be fine!

No preference on chocolate - other than it's chocolate, and therefore I eat far too much of it!

A little knowledge of Brimingham, but I wouldn't want to trust any of it. At all. Ever.
So no then...

Can I suggest that mobile's are sent via pm? I'll happily pass mine on, but not posted openly on the net. No offence Demian, but I think you're slightly mad for daring to...

I've posted it on a forum with 50,000 members and had a few fun calls that night and no problems afterwards

Re the money: I sent cash (notes) - I'm not recommending it, and do it at your own risk... but hey, it's easy
