Nope, I've already told Rockchick not to try to arrange it around me. Pick the date that most folk can do. Or just pick a date and if somebody can't make it - and that includes me - then hard luck Laugh

I'd get lynched for arranging that date - it's my grandad's 100th birthday! Shocked

Ok, can everyone manage the 26th Jan??! Flowers

You met me in my wedding dress down West mine Big Grin
I'm very excited at the prospect of having it at Alderley, I just hope it's on one of my weekends off. Is it usually an all day thing or an evening thing?

Hi TWitch,
Yep, i remember you- i didn't have that much to drink you know Laugh
We normally make into an afternoon trip, but we can really just make it as long or as short as people want! We've got to have a meal underground though- wouldn't be the same without that.

I'll put this up as a trip so everyone can sign up- that way i know how many i'm cooking for!

Do folks want to do it by lamplight as previous trips? I really think it's worth it!

Would people want some subtle lighting in the mine. Am happy to drag a Jenny over to one of the shafts and get a few lamps in the main chamber Flowers
