I agree Paul, I admit part of the reason I don't go every time is because it's so far away for me. It's a good 45 minutes each way for me on a good night, and will soon be a around 55/60 minutes once I've moved house. I know I don't work as much as some people, but after 9 hours at work I still think its a lot of driving to be doing.

I know there's North and East Yorkshire as well included in this, who are even further away so it's not even an option really to be travelling so far. I don't want to exclude them but maybe worth having a dedicated North/East Yorks meet additionally if anyone up there is interested from that area.

Maybe worth having a bi-monthly meet for everyone and a more localised one the other months, or alternate between a couple of locations. Say one around Leeds/Wakefield and another around Sheffield/Barsnley/Doncaster?

If anyone thinks I'm daft then say so.

I have suggested this a number of times.
Members seem happy with the idea.
I will push on with it.

I've asked people who want to come to message me their post codes... Just so I can try and pick a place that brings us all in from even (ish) distances.
I don't mind distance from time to time but we have fallen into a small tight group with a fair bit of travel for the same ones month after month

My personal take on this...

Move it around, but 3 months at a singular venue before moving onto the next to avoid confusion and people turning up to the wrong locations.

Summertime is where we need to be exploiting the lovely Yorkshire countryside beergarden retreats...

I feel that WHEN and IF we do agree on other locations if we post it up as a new thread on here and like now all pass it on to friends who maybe dont use the forum enough... then we will just have to hope people check the forum and location.I for one would never set off to a meet without checking who was going and that the location/time was still the same.

I for one don't mind traveling to foreign places lol, but we need to be able to make the numbers up so its not a flop and a waste of fuel..

Now the season time is coming I will be checking the local meet section regularly!

Right, hello all,
With the next meet approaching,what are peoples thoughts regarding moving this time ( just to try a slightly more central locations for those who have attended past meets) to Xscape?
The last time a few of us met up there we had a good evening,
Or are we sticking to pubs for the monthly?
Could do with a little input here people as if we plan something for nobody to turn up... its pointless.

I'm happy to do xscape if people wish to try it there.

Shall we do another hare and hounds meet this time and chat further on the subject? - I will be there this time.

To make it worth a chat... there needs to be members there.
Its a little hard to find inspiration to push on when the same 6 people turn up and just shrug their shoulders when asked,
I would love to see fresh faces/ old friends, But the same old same old isnt pushing that, I just wanted to get as many people as possible to come to one place to sort out what they want and where they want it.
Im happy with either this time. Michael if you want to jump in with me to save fuel thats fine with me just come to mine and leave yours there. Sadlt i cant leave mine til about 6.45 though.

Thanks for the offer Paul, I'll let you know closer to the time. It might be a case of me only coming every other month or something,depending on what I'm doing. Looking like my house move isn't moving quickly, so should be able to get to the next one.
