    Excellent idea Jeeva, and well volunteered for organising a date etc. what a fantastic person you are.



    In all seriousness though - that sounds like fun, and I could probably drink whilst doing it, so two thumbs up from me.

    Re: An unfortunate necessity

    I'm game!

    I'd love to have a go at punting but would be worried about getting a bit of speed up and dropping the damnable thing in't water below, leaving us on a crash-course to some frail geriatrics on a day trip.

    I'm in Oxford, where punting is definitely a thing. Never done it, though.

    I believe the term is "boarding party", a well recognised and honorable means of regaining control... via pillage of their punting pole. And prosecco. Filthy prosecco. Should be old navy rum!

    Very much appreciate the donation bud <3

    I'd be up for doing something for our 10th for sure. Lets give it some thought.

    My attempts at sub-contracting Mr.Jeeva have been fruitless thus far.

    If anyone sees him, could you point him to me/this thread as I need to talk to someone with punting prowess, some canal-faring competence, some (very) small ship savoir-faire.

    Re: Playstuff 10 - Meetup?

    I'm back! (from overseas) Sorry about that.

    Yep, can totally organise this! Was actually looking briefly at stuff like airbnb apartments in the area on the off chance too many people took the idea seriously.

    Gorgeous weather at the moment, of course, tempered by "people generally want a bit of notice."
    November is technically the anniversary, if I'm reading the other thread right, but the coming months are better for meeting and hanging out (arguably).

    I'd love to drag everyone punting, but equally - anyone want to do the other things? I'm embarrassed to say I don't actually have a pool, so...

    Re: Playstuff 10 - Meetup?

    Well, I think I'd exchange weather to not have be exactly on the anniversary. That's not to say that I wouldn't travel within a reasonable distance to have a drink then too...

    Saying that, 'best laid plans' could dictate that punting would be out of the question anyway. I figure we just pick a date while we're still in the summer, if the weather sucks and we can't do it, so be it. I know it's not ideal, but we'd just have to hang out and be social instead.

    I think AirBnB would be a good idea, depending on the location you can find 8+ bedroom places which are suitable for events, worst case scenario there's always pubs/booze, tabletop games, laptops/steam link/whatever.

    Re: Playstuff 10 - Meetup?

    I'm fans of all of this! (and will totally host a barbecue with boardgames, broadband, and ... buddies if we can't punt for whatever reason)

    In the spirit of "plenty of warning", the weekend commencing 25/08? Earlier? Later?

    Personally, couldn't do it any earlier - that week would be the earliest I could possibly manage.

    PUNTING!



    Err, it's basically drinking and hanging out with folks on very slow boat things, while willing folk try to move the boat forward with a huge pole, whilst not crashing or falling into the river.. Yes, I think that's Post pretending to be a swan.



    Looks like the date would be (at least) the last weekend of August.

    Bump, I'll need a date set soon if we're doing this.

    edit: Or at least a poll of dates to get things moving

    Re: Playstuff 10 - Meetup?

    Here's some kind of date poll with far too many options!



    (Options are to select "weekend of" the date, if that makes sense?)

    Oh. Apparently the weekend of the 25th has a bank holiday, too. Neat!
