    BM meet up London Friday 1st July 2016

    Thats true K1 - lets do a 2016 summer London BM get together - Sef and I did toy with a Poole get together with Dawsey but both our schedules got screwed up. Hopefully by summer next year the pieces will fall into place - probaly should have a separate thread for this nearer the time. Enjoyed the last get together a lot, so hope next year will work out well.

    HMO - more red tape than is worth while, better to properly split the property into separate flats (rather then rooms) - also highly wary of the registration (+ fees) of private rented property - another stealth tax by over zealous councils IMO.

    I would be up for that. London is reasonably easy ( if heartbreakingly expensive ) to get to from here, anywhere beyond would be a pain in the ass but I did get down to Bournemouth once and caught up with Dawsey. Epic trip though.

    Yeah I'd be up for that too. Might have to get a room in London for the night though. Being rushed from a curry house in Brick Lane in a taxi with Luke to catch the last train home was a bit hectic. I was so pissed!

    You did well to catch the train that night Rog, I was full sure you were gonna be back on the phone to see who was up for some late night drinks after missing it! 555

    IIRC I headed into The Hippodrome in Leicester SQ after that for some late night drinks and a flutter! ;-)

    Brill thanks Dawsey. I'm up for this if it happens, assuming the diary allows.

    I might be up for it as well if we manage to get a date early on. Flights from switzerland to london are pretty cheap.

    Any time suits me now Kev. I'll fall in with whatever dates are decided.

    Promising...

    Actually, that's a real bargain. Would likely cost me that much on the train.

    Suggested w/end of 18th/19th June as is the closest one to summer solstice, so maximum daylight for us, but if Oli and Paul coming over then only fair to fit with guys taking flights!

    I'd suggest we avoid school holidays if possible - I don't have any firm plans that far ahead so like Roger can be flexible.

    To be honest, I can do anytime.......doesn't matter but I'd imagine weekends are best for everyone

    Steve, just drive down and get a room in a hotel that has parking. That's probably what I'll do, especially if Oli is staying over.

    Most likely Kev will take us to one of his titty bars (the last one was excellent if I may say so) and a ruby in Brick Lane again. So a Premier Inn/Travelodge cheapie somewhere in the East End.

    @Paul. Hope you can make it over. We'll have a blast! With the London members Luke, Kev and Kris it won't be a dull meet that's certain

    Seems to be a Premier Inn on Brick Lane. I wouldn't drive, really don't like driving down there these days. Booked in advance the train will be sub 150 first class so pretty easy.
