For anyone that is staying in the hotel on Friday night, would you like to meet up for dinner in nearby Rickmansworth? There is a great choice of restaurants and pubs there. The only problem is it's very popular and gets exceptionally busy on Friday nights. So I will have to book something. My current favourite places to eat is: http://www.zaza.co.uk/restaurants/rickmansworth

I would book something for 8.00pm if I get 4 or more interested (including me!) They can do us whatever table size we need as long as I call them at least 7 days in advance.

The rules:

As per the KOA constitution, the bill will be split evenly among all parties so come ready to have wine and at least two courses and don't tell us at 9.45pm that you only had a wafer and tap water. Budget is £20-£30 based on how greedy we are. In terms of transportation from the hotel and Rickmansworth, I can sort something out once I know numbers.

Please state below your name below, and state YES/NO whether you require transport to/from the UKC hotel in Apsley.

1. Robert S (NO transport needed)
2. Andy G (NO transport needed)
3. Chris D (NO transport needed)
4. Mark E (NO transport needed)
5. Gianni T (transport needed to hotel)
6. SandroT (transport needed to hotel)
7. Alessandro V (transport needed to hotel)
8. Ian K (transport needed to hotel)

Gianni T
SandroT

We need a transport to come back to hotel.
We will be doing some tourism on Friday. I think we should be able to reach Rickmansworth with public transport, hopefully!

Yeah the London Underground will get you to Rickmansworth. It's about a 45min journey from the centre according to the route planner I have on my phone.

OK this is booked for 8.30pm (couldn't get 8pm) and I have a table for 8 people (one extra space available). If anyone needs help getting there or finding it, let me know. Send me a PM if you don't have my phone number and would like it.

Gianni, for the three of you to go back to the hotel, I will enquire from the local taxi firm how much a pre-booking would be for 3 of you to Apsley. If this is not too expensive, it's the simplest option. If there are more going to the hotel or those have room to take passengers, we can change this later.

maybe there is some room in World Champion's car! I think he should come back to hotel too after the dinner...

The world champion has too much of an ego to have spare room in his car. ;)

I'm guessing World Champ, Chris and me will be heading to Rickmansworth from the hotel in one car, so fitting 3 Italians and their luggage for the journey back might be a problem. We could take 2 cars instead though. How's the parking near the restaurant Robert?

We could try squeezing 4 in the back of mine, luggage will not be a problem in my boot.

Thank you so much, I didn't know you were 3 already in the car! I doubt we will be able to fit 4 warriors in the back sits.we will leave our bags in hotel before tourism, so once we will be in Rickmansworth we will have no luggage. I think it will be very difficult though! Never mind, but we need a b-plan!
