It's a good idea, but i think it'll spoil the candle/lamplit atmosphere we're aiming for. Thanks for the offer though!! Flowers

I would have done it, especially as you were making free food !

Next year we can have it in Cleveland, although there might be the slight issue of everyones oil lamps, tallow candles and flaming torches going out the second we step inside. Laugh

I'd come but I'm away as well.
Actually that's not entirely true. I'd come if I wasn't away and if I wasn't pathalogically adverse to anything requiring a sence of fun...

Is there no Misery emoticon on this site?

Quick bump for this - at present there's only four of us on the trip. Is no one else interested, or is the weather putting people off? Sad

If there's only 4 it might be worth postponing until the weather is a bit nicer? It would be a pity if it was such a small turnout - we had at least 12 people last year I think!

Due to other commitments I can't do the 26th but if it gets shifted to another date I can make I will come over, and just for comedy chaos effect I could bring Ted the Terrierist as well....
