We need to know numbers ASAP and collect a £10 deposit in the next 2 weeks (by 10th September). You can either pay me direct at this months buggy club or paypal to vcoleman3c@gmail.com

The remaining balance will need to be paid by Friday 17th November. We will post details about final payments, food choices and accommodation after deposits have been paid  ;-)up

So let's start a list:

Meal and Tribute night only (£38.95 per person)


Meal and accommodation (based on 2 people sharing, including tickets for the tribute night and breakfast, £139.95 or single occupancy £99)

Pam and I went across to the hotel tonight to meet the manager and check out the venue. We both thought it was fantastic. You can check in from 2.00pm but that may be earlier, the facilities available for people are; a swimming pool, gym, steam room, sauna, spa and plunge pool. Check out is 12.00pm on the Sunday. The room holds 120 and should be sold out, we have booked for 50 places and we are at 32 at the moment  ;-)up

Hi all, just a reminder you have until this Sunday if you want to add your names to the list and to pay the deposit  ;-)up  For those that are booked and paid, here is a copy of the menu. We will be taking orders at the MBC tomorrow night and then asking others to either post their choice or send an email to either Pam or myself. The gluten Free menu is exactly the same (minus the Yorkshire pudding and replaced with extra veg)  ;-)up

Hi all, thanks to everyone for paying their deposits so quickly  ;-)up If anyone else would like to join they have until tomorrow night to let us know. We will let you all know the payment details etc. next week. If you could drop us an e-mail or a message through facebook with your food orders that would be better than starting a list on here. I know some of you have already started to do this  :) Looking forward to the night, 55 of us now!

Better post here dress code is smart as we are going up market.

Chatting with Vanessa and crew the idea of a £1 secret Santa for the meal was dropped due to the group size distribution would take Santa and his elves to long on the night.

Mad drunken thought time of night . . . .

How about making this a Fancy Dress event ?

No particular theme, just come as you want ?

Apologies if overstepping the mark on someone else's party organising, but I know how you lot like to dress up  ::)

My understanding Dave is we are about half of the venues 120 capacity and its 'smart' dress code so we'd stand out of only half of the audience is fancy dress, and more so if a few of us were perceived as a particular unsmart fancy dress ?

Posting here just in case they have got confused with anyone else's payment as I thought it could have been a senior moment on my part

The MBC Christmas bash was a great night, a special thanks to Pam and Vanessa for the organisation to make it a great weekend.  I feel I should also mention and applaud the many many non MBC members who made the extra effort to attend by making long journeys of anything up to 4 hours to get there. Well done and really nice to meet up again.

What a brilliant party night !

However, I really struggled to recognize anyone there.  I`m so used to seeing everyone on a grubby campsite wearing 2 week old pants, and you lot all looked so different after having a wash - some of you really do scrub up well !!

Pam and Vanessa, We cannot thank you enough for all of your hard work behind the scenes, that was a truly spectacular event and we cannot wait until we do it again next year -

-same place, same hotel, same again   :D  ;-)up  ;-)up  ;-)up  ;-)up  ;-)up

Also thank you to everyone who gave me presents, chocolates and wine, how did you know  ;D

The only picture I have that is worthwhile is of Hugh donning what can only be described as an partly Orange tie  :D

Is this a future insight to Hugh's fleet  :o

I wonder

'... Hugh donning what can only be described as an partly Orange tie...'

Yes and it had worrying traces of green as well now I've reviewed the footage. Just goes to show one can't be too careful about how you dress and others will see you even at the Xmas 'staff party'.

But more seriously it was great all the men shifted up a sartorial gear to complement the beautifully attired ladies.

Christmas came early for me with two generous gifts.

1] A soft smiley pad that Keith & Vicky encouraged me to squeeze. Knowing my tenancy to need regular buggy help I anticipated that this was some form of emergency signalling device that would then summon Keith, where ever he was, to yet again get me going again. Indeed it was a device that could be employed in emergency circumstances but, without wishing to sound remotely ungrateful, I found its MO was to emit a disturbing laugh presumably to give realistic comfort in times of need (ie you're stuffed mate best call recovery). Thank you Keith and Vicky - I shall think of you regularly !

2] A far classier object from Dave M. Proof I am in the 'Sidewinder Club' along with the Midlands No1 Sidewinder driven by Vanessa and Manchester's very own 'OCD Sidewinder' Krug. Illustrious company indeed.

Humbled by this extremely generous Xmas present - thanks Dave - I have yet to decide whether to add it above the existing VW symbol or have it stand alone. And then whether to have it with the gold effect insert:

(https://s26.postimg.org/o4yyu2xqx/P1030081.jpg) (https://postimg.org/image/9lrtso4lx/)

or to remove this and have the shells yellow come through the powerful Sidewinder snake head:

(https://s26.postimg.org/i6l5jues9/P1030082.jpg) (https://postimg.org/image/s3w6cwmdx/)

I think I prefer the latter viz the yellow showing through - can't have too much yellow !



I'm hoping we can entice the winner of the IBW furthest traveled buggy (Arran) to consider coming down - with or without his sporran - to next years MBC Xmas do. If he's up for it then everyone in the UK should consider joining in. Anyone coming by train to New Street Brum can surely be collected and transported to the hotel by MBC regulars.
