    Stag do!

    I'm wondering if you anyone can help me out,

    I'm best man for my friend in August and we're going to York for a good old drinking session in July and I have only been on one stag do before, so I lack experience in this field, so I need ideas for the stag in question?

    I've priced up midgets being handcuffed to him and everything but we're trying to keep it as cheap as possible,
    we are semi-professional paintballers, so paintballing is out of the question as it won't be anything unique and I want this day to be something I talk about in the speech

    any ideas/suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    Well an upgrade for some (depending on the persons taste) is Airsoft as oppose to paint balling? Good luck btw had to organise something last year for my mates stag do I did indoor skiing with real snow.

    Stag do

    And this when you get to that stage.

    Best mans speech advice

    All the best mate!

    Can't be turning our back on paintballing with airsoft haha
    I would love to do something like indoor skiing/boarding, always wanted to do it, but think everyone is gunning for the opposite of what your stag wants, they want alot of alcohol, strippers, etc...

    but I will seriously look at the things you've suggested, thanks alot

    Can't beat a bit of competition, so Karting is always a fav for me (it's usually pretty cheap too!)

    F1 Racing Premier Karting - Welcome

    Plus then you can force him into L Plates!

    It's York so going for a booze cruise down the river is always a good choice. Plus there's always a trip to the racecourse if there's anything happening there.

    We've done, clay pigeon shooting, go-karting, a weekend in Blackpool, and a Saturday night on Broad Street Birmingham.

    Ensure he is dressed appropriately. We made the last groom wear a tutu and fairy wings.

    Went on one a week or two ago, went on a boat cruse around the harbor, bikini girls serving drinks and a stripper than as we were in town a pub crawl and stripclub. Was suprisingly cheap but it does rely on being closish to water, and strippers. Reasonably tame too, there were only three broken bones

    Looks like we're going to go for the Dune Buggy racing (£45 - 3 hours) then hitting a couple of the clubs (Flares, the living room late bar and Kuda - £10) Premier inn for £25 each, then Sunday, I'll be up nice and early for drinking all day again but doubt some of them will be haha

    Get the train to Scarborough on Sunday, it's 45 minutes and has any number of excellent pubs to do the drinking, not to mention drunken antics on the seafront all followed by a six am finish in the casino

    sounds like an awesome plan and personally, if I had it my way I do do this, but there's people that are going that are on very strict budgets and time scales, so I can't be as extravagant as I would like.

    I wanted to go to Prague for a couple of days but hey ho

    I'm a true believer of home and away stag do's, maybe even kick in a neutral ground depending on how much interest I have, but the person that has the budget is the groom himself, so maybe a bit pointless in a stag do with no stag haha
