By popular demand I'm organising a summer meet up for us Cheltenham Ladies!!

I'll organise an evening 'do' as, I for one, am always in need of a night out

So, shall I throw out a few dates and see what everyone can do?

Friday 3rd June
Saturday 4th June
Friday 17th June
Saturday 18th June
Friday 24th June
Saturday 25th June

I'll DM everyone who came/wanted to come last time. Please let anyone else know as well.

Lets have any suggestions for somewhere to meet, somewhere we can sit outside if it's sunny maybe? So if you've been somewhere you think would be a good venue, please say (or I'll end up choosing somewhere that is packed full of race goers like last time grin )

3rd (poss) or 17th for me smile

Blatherskite Thu 05-May-11 15:46:41

Just saying Hi.

Will wait and see how the Spring meet-up goes before I sign up for any more smile

DollyTwat Thu 05-May-11 16:29:51

Make sure you bully persuade goml to come won't you!

Blatherskite Thu 05-May-11 16:30:33

I'll get her pissed and make her sign something grin

PatTheHammer Thu 05-May-11 17:04:07

Hi Dolly, thanks for organising.

The weekend of 17th/18th better for me. How about The Exmouth Arms on Bath Road, it has a Beer Garden? We could even do a meal first at maybe the Norwood if anyone felt up for that.

Its a short walk from there into Montpelier to go to the bars etc.

Crispy.......I could pick you up on the way through? Alternatively we could share taxi costs and get wasted have a few drinksgrin

CrispyTheCrisp Thu 05-May-11 17:24:33

Sounds good Pat - the Exmouth Arms does quite good food too? or is that only at lunchtime?
Or there is the curry house just down the road <fond memories of eating in there during incarceration at Cheltenham ante natal ward grin>

st1g Thu 05-May-11 17:45:52

17th/24th/25th are possible for me. 3rd & 4th are half term.
No idea on where though, sorry!

PatTheHammer Thu 05-May-11 17:48:55

Oh yes, I'm eating at the Exmouth in a few weeks so I hope its good, and they serve until about 9pm I think.

Plenty of Curry houses to choose from if people would prefer a curry, Indian Brasserie was always my favourite although DH likes Balti Walla as you can bring your own booze (or you used to be able to).

DollyTwat Thu 05-May-11 18:10:07

Exmouth sounds like a good plan especially as I can walk to it from my dads house!
Let's leave the thread for a few days so we can gather us all in and look at the dates everyone is available

Galena Thu 05-May-11 18:24:41

Can't do 17th/18th at all as we have a family wedding to go to in Norfolk.

Any of the other dates though. Exmouth Arms would be fine though or anywhere really.

<Sadly in need of a night out as I haven't had a night out for over a year!>

hi, the only date i can do is the weekend of the 3rd and 4th, the 4th would be better. its ds2's 10th birthday on the 18th so that weekend will be getting ready for and having his party. the 24th/25th is the weekend of my best mates wedding so cant come then either. sorry x

DollyTwat Thu 05-May-11 18:49:21

We can look at July dates if it suits everyone better?

Galena Thu 05-May-11 18:51:28

Don't think I have anything booked yet for July... grin I'm not needy really grin

DollyTwat Thu 05-May-11 19:04:46

I can do any fri/sat in July

But as it's the start of the summer hold, let's narrow it down to

8/9th
15/16th

In case of holidays

moomoo1967 Thu 05-May-11 20:19:39

I'll wait if I can until you have all set a date then see if I can get a sitter smile

Any of those good for me. I'll probably drive as I'm coming from Churchdown plus I'll probably be up in the night with the baby, so happy to give anyone a lift.

Mbear Thu 05-May-11 22:48:52

Hi, I didn't make the last meet up, but def on for this one. Think nearly all dates are fine, but generally sat night is better than fri night for me (work saturdays!)

I'm in Longlevens if anyone nearby to share lifts/taxi costs etc

DollyTwat Thu 05-May-11 23:24:46

Ok so who can make Saturday 9th July?

Galena Fri 06-May-11 06:09:22

Me!

st1g Fri 06-May-11 10:01:38

Can do 9th July too grin

DollyTwat Fri 06-May-11 10:47:11

I can feel a plan coming together!

so this is the plan so far, if everyone can make it on this date:

Saturday 9th July
Exmouth Arms
7.30pm?

and from previous experience, we need a way to identify each other!
I ended up accosting lots of people last time asking if they were MN'ers!!

shall we all get a hat like Princess whatsername?

Galena Fri 06-May-11 13:05:39

I think we should all have these although it isn't properly attired...

DollyTwat Fri 06-May-11 14:02:44

He's lOvely!
So much easier to bring than Terry Wogans cock!

Perhaps I can give out my mobile number to those coming nearer the time

Shall we start a list:
