Moblog BBQ

For anyone who may be available, be it North or South, Mrs540air and I,
with help from Alfie are throwing a bbq at ours on either the August
bank holiday weekend Sunday 27th, or maybe September 16th.

We're about 35 minutes out of London into deepest Essex, for those considering it.It'd be cool to have as many people there as possible, we can offer a roof over your head if you want to stay over, but you'd need a sleeping bag. Alternatively, you could put up a tent in our back garden.

So far it seems a fairly even split between the two dates, which may of
course mean doing the whole thing twice, but if people want to give
dates they are available we can work it all out from there.

The discussion is yours.... (link)

Alfie says:

Perosnally I'd be partial to the 16th, nice mid month break then followed by a bank holiday!

Assuming I'm in the country when you have it, I can fit 5 people in the car (including me). My place is on the central line, 20 minutes from Liverpool St Station so easy to get to - so if you want a lift let me know.

MaggieD says:

would love to come .... 16th best for me .... if I can get a lift (D so good of you to offer!) ..... will only need a one way lift as I have my own personal chauffeur to pick me up and take me home .....

Joe says:

We're a possible if it's the 16th :)....but then I already said that in the forum....doh.

Dhamaka says:

OK Maggie :-)

D - Would you, Gael and Geo all be available on the 16th? That seems to be the date people are turning towards.

18th Aug 2006, 10:13

kel says:

Can't do either of those dates, unfortunately... :(

18th Aug 2006, 10:18

Gael says:

P I can do the 16th - but would need to leave at 4PM ...
EDIT got my wires crossed, 16th maybe ... but prob with whole family in tow ...

Geodyne says:

I'm afraid the 16th is bad for me, I was planning to be in Edinburgh that weekend (although that's not yet carved into stone). I'll have to see what I can do.

540air says:

kel - :( Maybe next time?

Gael - Cool that you can make the 16th. I reckon if we aim for about a 12:30 -1:00 start then at least you'll get a few hours before you have to go. Will you be bringing your gang? :)

540air says:

Geo - Hopefully you'll be able to twist things around and make it. :)

Wanders off to cross fingers and suchlike.....

Just thought, anyone know if Euphro is available?

18th Aug 2006, 10:34

Dhamaka says:

You have responses from the others. I have to be here on the 13th but haven't finished reorganising a couple of things and won't be able to say for sure for a week or so.

I'll let you all know as soon as I do

18th Aug 2006, 10:34

Geodyne says:

I'll see what I can do, P and let you know when I do.

Euphro could be available, I'll make sure he sees this.

18th Aug 2006, 10:37

540air says:

Ok, cool, thanks guys. I'll keep my fingers crossed that you can all make it :)

MaggieD says:

Have just been told that the 16th is when we are taking our son up to uni ...... sorry that means I can't come :-(

18th Aug 2006, 13:11

Dhamaka says:

Have to say it's looking less and less likely for me. Trying to fit visiting 3 countries (maybe 4) into September is difficult enough without making it to the barbie on a Saturday..

but I've not given up yet..

18th Aug 2006, 13:15

540air says:

Would switching it to the Sunday (17th) make it any easier for people perhaps?

18th Aug 2006, 13:27

Dhamaka says:

If anything, that would be more difficult for me, but it's probably better not to take me into account for any of September

18th Aug 2006, 13:31

540air says:

Ok, I'll stick with the Saturday unless, everyone wants to change it.

It'll be a shame if you can't make it D, but I'm sure there'll be others. BBQ's are a fairly regular thing in our house :)

teflon says:

I think I've got plans on the 27th, but the 16th should be possible for me. (At least, I'm assuming that with my new job I'll have weekends free, but they've told me very little on that front so far)

18th Aug 2006, 14:05

Dhamaka says:

sounds good to me...

18th Aug 2006, 14:05

Euphro says:

The Euphros would love to be there, but unfortunately we will be in Austria (a feeble excuse, I know). We will be back on the 25th, but then off to Sicily that weekend for a christening. All of September is really out for us, I'm afraid.

kel says:

Next time def!

18th Aug 2006, 16:50

540air says:

Ok,for anyone who can make it this weekend, let me know through the contact page and I'll email directions etc.
