*The times shown may change, depending on DST settings
How about a meet on the eve of the longest day? Wilber G has come up with a cracker of a pub to meet at. I thought for June we would go a bit further afield, and head towards Stockbridge. For June we'll be meeting at The Boot Inn. More information below. We'll be meeting there from 8:15pm.

For those interested, coming from Wickham I have a route, again thanks to Wilber for this. We'll be meeting from 7pm and leaving Wickham at 7:15pm. We'll meet as close as possible to the Lloyds bank in Wickham.

Please join us at the pub, and meet fellow Alfisti or join us on our route to this meet.

I will be publishing the route in the next few days.

Nice pub choice

Good location too might even attract some folk from the North of our region

Hi Mark, any decision on the route yet? The one I suggested goes through Otterbourne which would suit me, being the 'wrong' side of the county!

I'll have to keep up with you round the corners.

I'll have to stop for fuel on route, so you'll have a chance to catch up.

I'm happy with the (your) route as published, maybe worth PM'ing me your mobile number. Let me know where we'll pick you up on route as well.

We always stay as a group on route, so it's never going to be a problem keeping up, seeing as normally I have one of the smaller engined cars.

I'll set the route up, and put the Old Forge on my way point. But about 25 minutes into the run, so about 7:35 - 7:50 depending on lesser worthy traffic!

Fingers crossed for warm, dry evening.

I have added the route to the RSVP page, but for some reason google maps thinks I've done this as a walk, when using my ITN converter. However, it's there.

Also below for those with tom tom attached is the route.
