I'd opt for Tiger Tiger simply because it's actually IN Gunwharf Quays whereas Flares is quite a trek up by the Guildhall. I've never been to TT but judging by the queues outside it looks like a very popular venue. Also with TT we could book a private seating area so we'd all get a seat whereas Flares in Portsmouth is very small and has NO seating at all ... a bit of a no-no for those of us with ongoing weight problems who need to be able to have a sit down now and again through-out the evening.

Goint to TT means those who are staying at the Holiday inn at Gunwharf can just stagger out of the club and into bed! ;)
That's just my tuppenceworth anyway. Obviously, I'll go with the majority.


I STILL mean it!

I confirm that I will be coming, and staying overnight. Will book room later though, as I don't want to pay for it now.
Looking forward to it already. It's a good incentive to keep the weight off as well!!

I'll come along at 3pm to say hi to everyone and put some faces to names - but I'll probably have my baby son in tow, so will just stay for a quick drink.

Can you put me down as a maybe... it will depend on the finances after the Christmas jaunt to the USA. I will need somewhere to stay, so if you can make any recommendations that are 'cheap', a b&b or something, that would be great.

I live across the harbour from Portsmouth (short ferry ride) so although I wouldn't like to recommend B&Bs in Portsmouth itself (because I don't know them and some are used by the council for homeless accomodation) I thought I'd post a few B&Bs in Gosport that I know are OK. Don't know how much they cost but you could always give them a bell to find out.

They're probably cheaper than our big city neighbour though - maybe worth a shot if money is tight.

Hi Guys

Have looked into the practicalities of getting there, and I just don't think I am able to do it.

The distance is an issue with me, unfortunately, and transport is appalling, even if I drive.

Sorry, will have to back out - but if there's a "meet" available in Exeter or even Bristol I would be definitely up for it.

Penzance is not the best place in the world to travel from!

In Brum we met in the hotel foyer and that worked reallyy well as there were big sofas and bars too if we wanted a drink - would it be an idea to meet in the foyer of the Holiday Express Hotel? (and no, not saying that 'coz I'm staying there) Just thinking about the likelihood of a cafe having over a dozen empty seats in one area on a saturday afternoon.... (also how tough it can be sitting in a place that serves delicious smelling nosh whilst SS'ing)..

good idea FFF, i like your thinking :)
not booked my room yet but thats where i am planning to stay 2
also for those of us ss'ing the more likely to get h2o from hotel, i can't do black t or coffee!!

The foyer sounds great to me - I'm easy. We can always decide where we want to go and what we want to do from there or even just stay put and chill ... also some might want to do one thing and others something else (I guess we don't all have to be joined at the hip the entire time). Don't forget the January sales will probably still be in full swing at the designer outlets - a great opportunity to get your new smaller clothes!! :)
