    I dunno you leave a "local" person to organise the event and plot it and he goes and forgets to tell you the trams are not running lol yet Grant who lives a bezillion miles away down south knows that lol

    Agreed on the earlier start time though as its a Saturday its not as if were leaving the office (well maybe me excepted but that's another story....)

    bezillion miles away down south
    I know it seems like a loooong train ride down south to Buxton but it's really not quite that far

    Can I suggest meeting at 5pm-ish? - means we can have a couple of drinks, go for some food and then have a couple more drinks before people have to head home.

    Now wouldn't the Deer Hunter have been soooo much better if instead of guns and Russian Roulette they'd have had several brands of cider and played Gloucester Roulette?
