A bit of a 'do' in the Midlands?

Posted by Derek (Derek Bolton), 4 February 2004
Hi gang

I reckon that its about time we had a meeting of like minds in the Midlands.

We keep hearing about the sunny days out in Preston or Watford... all at the other ends of the earth as far as  us Midlanders are concerned.  Shocked

Do you reckon we could either twist the arm or sweet talk Mr Mike Boxall into hosting a Midland affair perhaps sometime in May this year? Wink

Seems like a good idea to me!

Absolutely...It's about time something happened in the midlands for a change...I've never been to a "Sunny Day Out"....I would if we had one centrally.

Hi Derek

You’re have to call it Sunny Day Midway


Posted by Glynn (Glynn), 4 February 2004
People travel miles to go to a genuine "Sunny DayOut"

watch out next year Big one.

Derek's idea is seconded by me.
Come on Mike........... host away.
Posted by Mike_Boxall (Mike_Boxall), 5 February 2004
Sounds good to me!

Lets get an idea on numbers and we'll sort a venue, hopefully being central we can attract a good number.

What does everyone think about a general Cleanitup get-together?

(you do all realise that we don't get much sun round here don't you!!!)

Hi Mike

Thanks for responding to my 'gentle persuasion' (no arm twisting required) and as I suggested the idea I suppose I had better commit to turning up... I hope that doesn't put too many people off. Grin

Kind regards

What do you mean nothing in the Midlands!!

NCCA Exhibition every year          Midlands
NEC Exhibition every 2 years        Midllands
Franklins day out 2 years ago       Midlands
Grin Grin

Seriously though its probably the best place to hold most events, Preston & Burgess Hill are nowhere near me or any of us in the South East.

Hi Phil

Just to brighten up your day a little....The NCCA Exhibition this year is going to be in London! Shocked
It is being planned at this very moment and will be at ExCel in Docklands.

The Midlands 'do'... to all those folk who consider themselves out of the area.....come on down/up and enjoy the delights of this great part of the Country


Posted by Glynn (Glynn), 6 February 2004
At the last Sunny Day Out we had people travel all the way from -
South Wales.
as well as Birmingham, Midlands, Yorkshire etc etc
Motorways shrink this small country down.

Your right NCCA Exhibition is in London, its even in my Diary.

Friday 8th & Sat 9th, October is that right..
Posted by Derek (Derek Bolton), 6 February 2004
Hi Phil

You got it right...

'BIG' exhibition and over the two days around twenty seminars...ALL FREE

It's the place to be

Hi Derek

Your'e a poet and you didn't know it!!! Cheesy

Sounds a good do too!!!


Posted by Ian_G. (Ian_Gourlay), 6 February 2004
I would be interested if I do not have to navigate Birmingham


Posted by mike_halliday (mike_halliday), 6 February 2004
Derek, are these seminars free to everyone or just NCCA members?

Posted by Derek (Derek Bolton), 7 February 2004

FREE to everyone except those with the surname beginning with 'H'  Wink Grin

Yeh, Mike  we'll let you in but if I am on the door it'll cost you a fiver...and you better be wearing a tie

This is a major show and although the seminars will be FREE you will have to book prior for obvious reasons.

It is envisaged that there will be 'two' seminar areas with the presentations taking place similtanously... don't worry if you can't make all the ones you want ...I do believe that provision is going to be made to record all the seminars and you will be able to by the CD.

Which month is that ?
Posted by Derek (Derek Bolton), 7 February 2004

Is there ample Car Parking facilities.

I believe evil clampers operate in that area.
Posted by Derek (Derek Bolton), 7 February 2004
More than enough which is why we are going there and not Earls Court, which was the other option

Plenty of Hotels too before you ask! Grin
