Check this out several guys have expressed an
interest in this and it does in fact look like fun.
But it's not that far away so now would be a good time
to start thinking about places to stay ect. At least
three guys have indicated that they want to go. So how
about a little feed back here if you have an interest.
Maybe we can put soemthing together. The thougth at
the moment is to stay one night.

All being well I will be there on the 4th & 5th July. Got my rooms booked.

Yep that is the one Dave, this will be first for me really looking forward to it. We are stumped on where to get rooms got any ideas?
As far as I know no one is locked into dates yet so we can more then likely go the same day as you. It's always good to see friends.

There's never enough rooms, or good enough rooms.
You have to confirm & "pay in advance" for someone to keep them for you.
I once booked by phone to a hotel I'd stayed at twice before, & on the day when I rolled up someone else had the rooms. They arrived earlier & just offered more money. It's tough!

Thanks David I found that one as well but for some reason my computer won't open the event schedule. Is it about the same or very different?

Ok this is where things stand at the moment some of us will be coiming up Thursday adn others on Friday. One guy decided not to spend the nihgt so we have one room available if soemone needs it. Please let me know quickly as I have to change to include Thursday. If no one wants the room I need to cancel it.

Good to see you guys are on the ball.
I too will be arriving in Dan Sai Thursday 2nd now, after a phone from my local contact yesterday advising that the parade starts on Friday, so you need to be in town on Thursday night to catch the build up to the event & the parade Friday.
See you all there then.
29th June 2008, 01:18 PM
See you then
