Anglesey Socials

Post by Benja » Thu Feb 11, 2016 10:28 pm

Right guys now that the event has sold out and before we get to talking about convoys we need to agree the evening socials.

Of course its all a bit complex because of everyone being so spread out staying in hotels in Bangor and across the island and arriving at different times on Thu.

Thursday Evening
Option1 (default) : Everyone fends for themselves. I'd make a booking for the Premier Inn rabble.
Option2 : Converge in Bangor for a curry. Thommo is right, minibuses is the way to go.

Friday Evening
Option1 (default) : Same again everyone does their own thing. Again I'd make a booking at the Premier Inn.
Option2 : Stick around or converge back on the island at the Sandymount in Rhosneigr (the typical post-event haunt for those staying on the island). As necessary we may need to organise some cabs/minibuses.

I'm more than happy to invest some time organising whatever the majority wants. One year we did all go into Bangor (which was a bit of a farce with the cabs!) and one year we went to the Sandymount. Of late there's been so many people at the Premier Inn we all end up staying put.

What say we?

I do enjoy a curry, rather go out personally.....

For me out Thursday, in Friday less peeps (just the way it is) talk about the day....

Minibus from The Bull, Llangefni to Bangor for curry looks feasible. I need to canvas those staying at The Bull before committing to Bangor, so will do that via PM/fone/text and post results here.

I will be staying put at the Premier on Thursday night as yet more logistics and additional travel would do my head in ..
Friday curry sounds good though ..

I hadn;t realised that the Premier Inn was so far outside Bangor but hope the Premier league members will still be up for a pre-event curry.

Yeah I'm for staying put too. The Premier Inn pub has always been good, with over 30 odd people there. Didn't we all say "never again" after the last time we all tried to meet up using cabs and stuff? I seem to remember it being a bit of a nightmare.

Or maybe i'm just being anti social. I will go with the flow.

I'm easy, its not the location, it's the company that makes the night! - food has always been good at the Premier Inn.... but we did see some sights one year at the curry place in Bangor! :D

Ditto

I seem to recall a reasonable curry at the Inn if that makes any difference to anyone.
