    Show of hands please for a Kent OCUK Meet

    The OcUK Kent Meet 2005
    Saturday 12th March 2005
    1pm Onwards
    Maidstone, Kent


    Due to popular demand from people in London and the South East, an oppertunity for you to meet fellow OcUK'ers has been arranged.

    The schedule for the day is as follows

    1pm onwards - Meet at the White Rabbit Public House, Maidstone. Drinks, lunch and socialising (get to know your fellow OcUK'ers)
    3.30pm ish - Bowling at AMF Bowling Maidstone
    6 or 7pm ish - Food at a local establishment
    Evening - Drinking and more socialising

    For those traveling from afar there are a number of places to stay, many people are already booked into The White Rabbit pub, however other establishments are mentioned (and hyperlinked to) in the following thread. A small 'quiet' gathering will be organised on the Friday night for those who wish to attend. This will take place at the White Rabbit so anyone who arrives late can join us there up to closing time.

    There can also be a meeting for breakfast and mass purchasing of AlkaSeltzer on the Sunday.


    (This is an over 18s meet for the usual reasons of safety and the duty of responsibility which would be placed on those attending to look after minors.) We MAY be willing to accept 2 or 3 16/17 year olds for JUST the bowling but please ask first, and note that NONE of us will buy drinks for you.


    There is a deposit payable for the bowling which I will put up, once I know how many people are coming, please only add yourself to the list once you can confirm you will definately attend, so I don't end up out of pocket! Price for the bowling will be around £15 for 3 games including shoe hire

    If you have any questions about room sharing or hitching a lift with an attendee, please feel free to post them here or you can contact me directly.

    Look forward to meeting you

    My initial thoughts were for just an overnighter but if there is more interest from those around the country I will have a bit of a rethink.

    One of the issues with Kent is there isn't that much to do :( Most of the good stuff in in London. That said we could do a friday evening in Kent with the drinking eating and Travelodge type accomodation that that offers and maybe spend the next day in London (an hour or less on the train), coming back in the evening finish the mayham back in Kent?

    Hell yes! :D

    It doesn't have to a be a huge night out though, and there are enough places in Kent to have a nice evening surely?!

    London is hiddeously expensive - though the last "london meet" was pretty good :)

    Anyway I'm up for it it'll be the shortest drive for a meet ever! :p

    Maybe I should have thought this through more before I started posting about it :D

    In these initial stages I am willing to take ideas on timing, especially as to whether people feel it should be before or after Alton Towers, which means either March or the summer really. I expect these things don't work too well if they are too close together?

    Not really fussed when it is. As Piggy said, there's the Motors RR day in April and somebody mentioned something about going to AT in May.

    As long as we avoid those dates then I'm pretty much all go.
