Ok, giving up on the bike museum plan due to not enough interest, though if we end up with enough people nearer the time I can always see if they have the room free still. Rather than wait around I thought it would be better to get something in peoples diaries. The general consensus is the last weekend is best (sorry to anyone who can only do the first!). So my plan is to organise a curry night at a place in Knowle, which is a junction down the M42 from the NEC (probably about 5 or 10 quid in a taxi for anyone who is staying near the NEC). There is a place there which has a separate function room upstairs with its own bar and I went to a party there recently. The food and service was excellent. There are plenty of hotels and B&Bs in the area and its easily accessible on the train for anyone travelling that way. If we get enough people to book the function room it works out between 15 and 20 a head. If not, I will just book a large table. The meal will be on Sat night, so you can hit the NEC show sat or sunday as you prefer. I will be looking to book this by end of October so need to know numbers by then. As per the previous post, wives and GFs are welcome, so let me know if you are bringing someone. I will post details of local hotels and prices shortly.

I thought it might be fun to give out some awards... Some ideas below.. feel free to suggest any more. I will take votes on the winners once we have agreed the categories... If anyone thinks they can blag some small (or large!) prizes from Benelli then PM me. Also if anyone from Benelli or any of the dealers would like to be involved we would welcome you with open arms and promise not to bother you about warranty claims :rolling:

Person of the year?? Tough one, nobody comes to mind? ;)

Post Whore? Could be a recount. During BBA's exile in the wilderness, RobFM tried really hard to take his crown. BBA is back and I have p*ssed myself reading posts on more than a few occasions. Methinks Rob will have to settle for sorceror's apprentice :D

Best Bike? any...cept the poser from 'dan-sarf'. No names ;) :rolling:

p.s. Welcome back Kurt. Did the house survive its bashing about ;)

I guess I will have to think on the criteria for post whore... is it quantity or quality that counts... if its sheer quantity I think Rob wins hands down, but quality.... hmmmm :rolling:

By the way, dont forget to say if you are coming to the party you numpties!

Love to come to this Colin and have to say Best Bike - well yours of course colin its a fine LE ( gotta big up the organiser havent yer ?)

Post Whore - Rob as he's found sites that even porn sites didnt know existed and has been quick to show us !

Man/Woman of the Year - Think that one has to go down to whoever looks good in both outfits :)

Al has to win craziest guy on the forum with a hint of sensitivity and piecing blue eyes to match ( dont take that in a gay way ok )

maybe if i have a quick word in someones ear at Motogb they might produce a prize suitable ;)

Ok people only just over a month to go, and at this point I am only aware of about 2 people who have said they are definitely coming. Clearly if this is going to end up as a large group I will have to sort things out soon as we will be in the Christmas party season so large tables will be at a premium. So, whos going to the show and whos up for a curry? Does anyone want me to put some details of local hotels? So far it looks like the following people are in. Can those who are coming let me know if you were intending on bringing a +1? The mrs probably wont want to come unless others are bringing WAGs.

Me
Rob
Goose
Jason
Bob?

Cheers

Col

Was speaking to Angus about this last week and we wondered if changing the weekend to the one before would make any dif to attendance? Pretty poor really if only 4 people can make it out of a cast of 100s! Personally I can do either weekend.
