Ideas have been discussed already.  Some are practical, others ambitious, a few downright dangerous  :o

But before getting too carried away shouldn't we agree a date?  How about Saturday 5th January '19 flowing seamlessly into Sunday 6th?

Which venue this year? Will there be a pre-ride? Will it involve pavés? Can we dig a hole for the Lynx to repeat his acrobatic manoeuvre?

Easy tiger, you're getting ahead of yourself!  Much detail still has to be finalised but I think it's safe to confirm that The Compasses, LG will be where we end up on Saturday evening.

Noted, I have started a Pole, he's called Jakub which was the most popular name for newly born Polish boy babies in 2010, Google says so.

According to Google, Epiphany 2019 is actually Sunday 6th.

Funnily enough, being the 12th day after Christmas, it always falls on the 6th January!

I've voted for the later weekend for no reason other than Jibbers said he couldn't make the earlier one.

After a VERY lazy end to a VERY lazy year I need to get back into things (and it's not starting too well) so a January Jolly would be great....I might even camp!

I thought that as well. Decided a non vote was essentially the same. I don’t mind either option, but makes sense to wait for jibbers, although that probably moves us closer to Chinese New Year. New theme?

Yep,  2nd epiphany theme  could be based on 12 Chinese zodiac animal signs, rat, ox, tiger, rabbit, dragon, snake, horse, sheep, monkey, rooster, dog, pig. Each rider to wear compulsory animal outfit by proxy vote. I will be putting on a bathrobe and turning up as a native Bruce Lee. No front battery lights allowed for night riding, just candle lit lanterns...those who make it to final venue without crashing into a hedge should count themselves lucky.

Perhaps it could be an annual event?  ???

Why not? Musky reindeer would count for 13th animal sign/months if your follow the Ethiopian calender...

Better still, how about a Burns night theme - only scotch spirits energy drinks ( no ales), tarten kilt dress code and reciting of Scottish poems until the Angus cows come home

If we go with the Chinese New Year replacement we could of course do Century Eggs...they make pickled eggs seem like sweets!

EDIT: They taste OK once you get them past your nose though!
