Christmas get together

I know we are a little way off, but this is one that i feel needs planning...

if you have looked at the social group you will see that this has been discussed, and there seem to be a few people who are provisionally interested, i beleve dates and cost will play a part....

some ideas that have passed through my mind...

I have one potential venue as soon as i have costs, dates and a menu i will post it up

i see this as a possible an overnight event, the chance to let our hair down, have a meal, a few drinks and end the year in good sprits

Partners are of course welcome if they want to come along

As soon as i have dates etc, i will start a poll, from there i will turn it into an even post....

So who's interested?

so looking at the costs it could work out, for 2 people

Food 28 per head = 56
Accomodation 25 per head = 50

For the food and accommodation the maximum cost would work out to be 106 for two people.

The easiest way to do this is to book individually but have your details added to a party name, so when you phone up to book you advise that you are booking for the Alfaowners xmas party, that way we can all b sure of being placed together.
Payment would be direct, and if there were any dropouts it would be your responsibility to notify the hotel.

so the next thing to do really is to poll who would like to go on what date and go with the majority
