I don't want to assume, but would anyone mind if I came along? I haven't been to an OOF meet in years!

Just seen this James . . .  cannot believe you have not had an answer yet :o

As far as I know all Oofers are welcome  . . .  :y :y

Sure you would enjoy this . . .but more of a social event  (nosh & drinks etc.) than spanners meet . But always a good night . Some of us stay over so we can have a slurp !

Serek & Big Griff  organise this . . . guess we are just waiting for an agreed date ;) ;)

I guess it's an open invitation as usual.....Omega or otherwise,I was with Serek last week and he's keen to get this done,but looking at the response,he can't book a table/tables until people commit to making a decision about their availability. Also it's about food preferences and being the run up to Christmas a fairly early booking may be an advantage.So as far as Serek,BG,Al and myself are concerned we're in :y So that would be a big yes to James and anyone else who fancies a night out,just need to know if you are interested and can you post up or let Serek know your availability

Late November sounds good to me. Last year's was a good night.

Post by: JamesV6CDX on 11 October 2016, 22:26:12
It could well be a self-confidence thing for me, but for a long time I've not really felt like anyone would be best pleased if I put my name down for a meet.

Thanks to the couple of folk that have replied, but I think in order to avoid any awkwardness, it may be for the best that I don't go along
Title: Re: Christmas party in hoofland

Apologies Nick for not mentioning you as I know you can be relied on to come along,and possibly Mark may come also depending on his work commitments :-\

I can't see any reason why you wouldn't be welcome James,you probably know most people anyway,also you've had a crap few months and once you've had a drop of 120 proof rocket fuel,you'll be nice and relaxed.....no pain killers that night,for sure,but possibly in the morning :D ;)

If you're sure, then I reckon I will enjoy it. As I say, I accept that it may just be me, because I've felt proper shit lately.

 There are only a couple of nights I can't do, eg Work Christmas meal . I will keep an eye on this thread, and once a date is decided, I will confirm it for sure :y :y

That's more like it :y it may be as in  the link that Serek has posted,but there could well be the default plan,which may be Spiceland, that's depending wether plan A, can be firmed up or not :-\

Then you will love spiceland, but they don't serve alcohol so you take your own,we just load the cold box up with 'supplies' which helps things go along nicely :y

Oh yeah, you can't beat a "bring your own" :y :y

They often do the best foods and are reasonable on price, too.

Well if I can make the date work, I will look forward to it :y

Actually Ken, you could come as far as me, and we could travel together, if you like. After you driving and me sleeping for about 2 hours on the M40, it's probably my turn to drive  ::)

Serek, could I suggest 1st Saturday of December . . . as SWMBO is away for a girls health spa/pampering/ beauty weekend  ::) ::) on the last weekend of November.
But if has to be last in November , could come solo.
And James, would be good if you could join us  :y :y

Love listening to Nick W's stories  . . last nights classic was the Ford engine that fell out the back of an estate while transporting  ;D ;D ;D

Looking forward to next one  . . . maybe we could try the other place Serek was talking about last night , that does Chinese as well as other international  cuisines  including Indian of course  :-\ :-\

With a varied  international menu maybe we could temp a few more Oofers ;) ;)

The following day I was the driver for a works party. I drove the same borrowed estate with a sudden huge lack of power home from Gatwick with four passengers. It was late, we were all on early shifts the next day, and I decided that if I knew what the problem was we'd have to wait hours for the AA. It turned out when I looked at it the following evening that two of the plugs leads had fallen off on a speed bump. A fully loaded 800cc Cortina estate struggles to do 60mph, and does about 8mpg ;D


Hoofland curry nights are well worth the 200mile round trip
