No I guess it won’t clash with that date . I think we agreed it needs tidying up

Do you restrict to historical tanks, or can modern tanks join in the fun too?

I have recently bought a HL T-90, and would love to join in the fun and be social!

Would it not be easier/safer to pre-book monthly meets for the year? This would also allow members/visitors to pre-book too.

Not sure what type of venue you're trying to book. But Scout huts are usually some of the best places to use, price and availability :thumbup:
Some even have large car parks or fields.

If you can guarantee the footfall then I’ll book it.

It costs me £100 for the day so minimum of ten attending or it doesn’t work.

Definitely - even if I'm still "immobile" (although I sincerely hope my control board will be fitted and The Beast up and running by then! Count me in regardless.

I won’t book it until we get a minimum of ten.

Currently have four including Jumbo and Black Knight.

I see from an earlier meeting that you are running on a wood floor. Are the hall owners okay with metal tracks? Might be worth looking out for rolls of 2nd hand exhibition carpet going cheap.

Sorry, but were just over a week away from 19th and only 4 interested since announced 3 weeks ago and the halls still not booked (10 needed) so l'm afraid l need to make alternate plans. Maybe if you took a small risk and booked the venue first you would get more commitment?

Please take this as constructive advice from someone who has organised RC national, European and World events for over 10 years. Book your meets a year in advance, make the calendar very public and get advance online bookings set up with PayPal. Simple for you and everyone else too. Council halls are always looking for bookings and are usually well equipped.

Tell you what, you drum up the interest and I’ll book the hall when we have enough people.

For some reason we can’t scrabble ten local people to play tanks and that’s really sad. May as well leave them on the shelf or sell them!

Thank you to those who replied and were interested.

Both sad and puzzling. There doesn't appear to be anything in or around London either. How does Grantham do it so consistently?
