Clapham Winter Weekend 2019 - 24th - 28th Jan
« on: December 04, 2018, 05:40:25 pm »
I'm proposing this as the sort of thing we did a couple of years ago.

The choice is the weekend  Thurs 24th to Mon 28th Jan or Thurs 31st Jan - Mon 4th Feb. They are obviously pensioners' weekends.

It's £18 pppn. Booking an entire dorm for 10 costs £180 so no point in doing that.

Please express a preference!
Oh, Bach without any doubt. Bach every time for me.

Previous thread here, for those whose memories need a refresh.

Pocket anemometer on standby; I can do either weekend.

Will this be on the common?
That's a mere 20 minutes ride from here.

Underground, overground, yacfering free...

Oh, wrong common, sorry.

We are being evicted moving house by the 19th January. There is little chance that we will know which way up we are by either of those dates, but you never know. I'd like to make it.

Oh, there's a Clapham in London and its environs, isn't there? I was forgetting. I was, of course, referring to the Important One in Yorkshire. See also Kilburn and Richmond. :P

I suggest, given the absence of anyone stating a preference for one or other of the weekends, that we go for the second one and book our own places. This, hopefully, will give the Clariflies the opportunity to sort themselves out.

Bob, I will be very happy to accept your hospitality and drive up on the Thursday. IIRC it's steak night at the Gamecock in Austwick...

's my Burfdi on the 24th but I can do either week. Family might have sneaky ideas for the 24th so the 31st is prolly better for me.

Unfortunately, there is no Fryup within the boundaries of the M25.

Have sent a reservation request. Suggest peeps don't leave it too long as viewed the wrong year at first and was fully booked the same time last year.

I haven't booked. About to catch up - I've been away in the Far North (Manchester) attending contrasting concerts. Where are we up to?

At the moment the preference is 2:1 in favour of the first weekend. The 1 was me. I don't mind which weekend it is. But - Bob, you say you have requested the second weekend but not had booking forms yet.

Can we make an executive decision at this point and stick with it? 1st Weekend! Everyone OK with that? ;)

I have the form on my computer as Sue emailed it to me.

I think Bob has already booked for the 2nd weekend, unless I'm reading things wrong ?

Happy to go with the first week end but I did indicate second to Sue as I thought we were waiting for the Clalrionettes to see if they could come. The first week end it is then and will fill the form out accordingly. House is topsy turvey atm due to new carpet installs so no pc all day.

Email and response today.


Thanks Sue. We have decided to move it to the week before with at least two of us staying on the Thursday night as well. i.e. Thurs 24th Jan to 4th Feb. 28th Jan  (having had a vote to obtain a preferred week end). Will get a form in the post tomorrow and will sort the deposit by credit transfer.
 
regards
 
Bob
