Summer evenings on the Marlborough Downs

Post by midlifecrisis »

I'm looking at a weekday evening meet, most likely once a month from May until the nights start getting too dark again.

This would include a drive over the Marlborough Downs (fantastic roads for anyone who doesn't know them), finishing at a pub with a suitable car park.

Which day of the week would suit people best, and what's a good starting time for you?

Thursday's a bad day for me, so it's looking like Wednesday - middle of the week so that might make it a good day.

Looking at the event schedule over the next couple of months, it's going to be difficult to pick a regular day ie first Tuesday or similar, as each day I looked at it very close to some event in one of the months.

So, to kick this off we'll select a different date each month which will also hopefully mean that we can maximise the number of people that can come sometime over the summer.

The first one will be to watch Lisa do her netball training. Woops, that's a different thread :tongue:

Tuesday 5 May, meet at Sally Pussey's Inn, Wootton Bassett (just off M4 J16). SN4 8ET. I'm assuming most of us finish work around 5:30 so to give time to get home / get changed / swap cars / get there etc, lets meet from 6:30pm onwards, aiming to leave for a drive at 7:30pm. We'll finish at the Crown Inn, Broad Hinton SN4 9PA having been around the Marlborough loop. The Crown Inn has a decent size car park and a large garden.

List as usual:

lol, trust me, all you'd see is a load of knackered looking bints in tracky bottoms!

Yeah i'm up for this, i however don't finish work until 6pm so probably won't be at the meeting point until around 7pm-ish after i've forced my way out of bath.
