Iirc. Elite Pete had sorted out a Chester venue. That's 2 hours further south?

That would be tempting for me.....The Lakes is just too far to go for me just for a weekend (busman's holiday!).

Last Sunday i drove a similar distance non stop (270 miles) in 5 1/2 hours. I was knackered on the Monday  :(

Lightweight!  ;) ;)

The past few years I've driven 200 & a bit miles each way to collect SWMBO's Auntie from Edinburgh at Christmas, turned around after a butty & a brew ..... 4 hours each way, once in the Omega & last year in the Merc. Then delivered her back in the New Year ....... Dead easy.   ::) ::) ::) ::)

Last year, we had 2 from M4 corridor, one from Felixstowe, myself, one from Derby, and 2 from North of Hadrian (excluding partners etc).

We originally picked the Lakes because it allowed our Jockular friends to join us - the Lakes is not far off halfway between me an Hotel21. With Newent being the Southern meet.

TBH, bring it further south, thus effectively excluding the Scots, you may as well bring it right down below Birmingham to make it nearer those who seem to be the ones who always go  :-\

Of course, if Chester means more members go, for whatever reason, thats brilliant :y



Either way, due to insufficient interest, I have no intention of pursuing the Lakes any further.
