Re: UK Championships 2018 - First shout

I know I say I'd put this on hold until Boxing Day, and I will, but in the meantime... In an effort to put on a better show than last year, is there anything, (and please do be honest) that needs improving. The coffee was good. There will be cupcakes or cookies, (or maybe both) this year... I really...

Re: Christmas wishes

Saving as much as we can, so we can have some spending money for Vegas, so my answer, this year, is nothing! OK, maybe an hour or two of peace and quiet, but if I'm asking for that I may as well ask for world peace, or a unicorn...

Ok, Ian, just for you I'll put this on hold until Boxing Day. You're going to have to let us know what you get! :P

Re: UK Championships 2018 - First shout

OK folks,

I'm going to give it another two weeks, then I'll be booking the venue for Sunday 27th May 2018, unless anyone has a real problem with that date, so please speak up now or forever hold your peace.

Or hold your piece, if that floats your boat. ;)

Re: UK Championships 2018 - First shout

Ohhh. Of course! I forgot about the lower leagues! OK, if we're waiting until the season finishes, I guess we should also leave it until the FA Cup final, (or whatever it's called this year) has been played. New date suggestion: the weekend of the 26th/27th May 2018. How does that sound? Thanks, lee...

Re: UK Championships 2018 - First shout

Just had a look and the last day of the season is the following week, the 13th May. Doesn't look as though there are any Premier League matches played on the 6th May.

Re: UK Championships 2018 - First shout

OK folks. It's definitely happening in Manchester. The best date is still the weekend of the 5th / 6th May 2018. If anyone has a problem with this date, please let me know asap. Also, please do sign up in this thread, as I will need numbers. I'm going to hold off booking the room for a month or so, ...

Re: UK Championships 2018 - First shout

OK, hold the font page, folks! I've been speaking to the other Vella, and he has expressed an interest in organising something in or around Milton Keynes. Technically, I think he's expressing more of an interest in not having to travel to Manchester, but I'll speak to him and see if we can figure so...

Re: UK Championships 2018 - First shout

Thanks everyone. I'm looking at the weekend of the 5th/6th May 2018, and assuming everyone is OK with re-visiting the venue of the 2017, I'll try and get the same place.

I'll leave this here for feedback.

UK Championships 2018 - First shout

Hi all, Now that the world cup is done and dusted, I guess we need to start thinking about the 2018 UK Championships. After what I consider to have been a good gig last year, I am more than happy to do the honours, if you all fancy another trip up north, to Manchester. Unless, of course, somebody el...

For what it's worth, I use Amiga Forever, because I'm too lazy to configure WinUAE. :D
