You lot are not thinking straight......

If you want an electrician's night out that encompasses all points of the compass then realistically then you will need to think of a location that is :
a/ central.
b/ hangover proof, besides the Hebrides and northern isles
c/ attractive and salubrious countryside
d/ local hotel with bon vivour
e/ relatively cheap
f/ somewhere where you 're not in a hurry to go back to your respective parts of the country
g/ maximum forum coverage
h/ first class discrete dining
i/ discrete parking for the Ferrari's

Otherwise its a hotel in Chelmsford, next to a sewage farm with some, no doubt, dodgy karaoke....

However, Its just round the corner from you, unless you want to travel half way across the country to end up in Watford doing your Christmas shopping......

I'm struggling with that dialect of the English language. If it exists (Shakespeare apart)

So I hadn't really considered the possibility of inviting all those footballers wives, unless they like being serenaded underneath the pylons......enter electrician Rock Chick....

I suppose there might be the possibility that the fraternity of the 'Tesla's Wives' society armed with coils and fluorescent tubes could be present, but that would be a distracting influence and would move us away from discussing the intricacies of the continual development of PIRs and Gold Standards.

Turkeys are off this year, they are still running around the fields at the moment so a bit tricky to chuck in the back of the truck.


Aren't they always

You must speak nice to them........

Hows about Dunsop Bridge? Well it is the middle of the country by most ways of measuring and it`s not too far from me.
Us Norfs of Lancashire and Yorkshire want a look in.

Failing that hows about a few central locations dotted about say 5 minimum each containing giant screens of the other 4 venues and we can all get absolutely wrecked whilst watching all the others getting absolutely wrecked too? We could link up via satellite to the Isle of Man (or via Skype) so Alan and his comrades can join in.

`twill be truly Electrifying. Watch the Sparks fly

Tesla V Marconi


That was a fascinating read, thanks for the info...

So Tesla's 'death ray' may have had something to do with a large Hydrogen explosion over Tungusta..?.

It may have happened elsewhere at the same time? and could account for there being few trees in Essex and orange pigmentation of the female gender in those parts?

im guessing we need some firm suggestions for a town/city for the venue.
Chelmsford was good for me last year only a hour drive from my house although I didn't make it there because some rude pub chain called me out to a fault on a fire alarm in one of there pubs in Norwich((

so I suggest
i) Chelsmford (again)
ii) London (easy to get to by train)
iii) Manchester (its sorta in the middle)

or my home town in suffolk, cheap B n B, free parking and I can walk there from my house, I could also chat to the landlord of my local and arrange some live musiic and FREE food ))

BUMP.

im running out of available nights so lets get it sorted

Realistically, as much as i wouldnt mind meeting the northern/ scottish clan, 250-350 miles seperates us. Its unrealistic for one national forum night out/ meeting.
(Leeds feels like my second home i have been to that many stag do's there, but i seem to get stupid plastered everytime i go there).

Maybe regional is the way to go. Us essex boys are just more organised. discuss.......

Good bump Pete

But about as organised as......

Mine too filling up. 11.26 pm...have 34 minutes to get somewhere before they won't let me in to see the band. But it would be great to get together for a small sherbert and a big discussion.

My wife has enquired if I'm going for a night out in Essex this year, without any prompting, it looks like she thinks it is a annual event that will result in her getting a girls weekend in London, whilst I am kept occupied! I suppose I will have to stop procrastinating and make a serious suggestion as to a suitable date. not tonight though!


Ps. Zs my good lady is just finishing the book you won't buy, I'll ask for a review, I bought her the box set cheap in a clearance book shop.

Bump,

I wonder what Shakespeare would have thought about this addition to the English Language?

Probably, would have written a play along the lines of :
Much ado about Nothing

Same here, need to get a date and location sorted

Perhaps we should stick to last years location, as quite a few attended? There's a hotel attached for those who wish to travel a far

Can we go for a meal instead but not a curry. OK with Chinese, Italian or English?

Sounds like a plan John, I've not been about for a few days....

They do food there but we would probably need to book something
