Monthly events?
« on: May 31, 2019, 09:27:30 am »
I was just wondering whether thereíd be any interest in holding monthly (evening) events?

Nothing complicated, I was thinking it could be as simple as booking a table in a pub each month (maybe the same pub each time). Iíve attended a few of the ones in Cambridge and theyíre nice events. I know there are some around, like Cheltenham, but thatís quite a long way for some of us for an evening event.

Would gladly attend a monthly event in a pub not too far away from home. 8)

Cotswold caching did that for a while but with us spread out and having to find a different pub, it fizzled out.

I know some groups use it as an opportunity to sort out some difficult puzzle caches or plan caching days but the main aim is just have a chat, with no pressure on the event organiser.

Thatís exactly what I was thinking. Something where itís the same pub (so no pressure thinking where to go next) and just chat, no pressure on the organiser except calling to book a table once a month.  :)

If we go ahead, does anyone have any ideas of a pub or date? Which days of the week are good for people?

Of course, Snowshill Arms comes to mind - it would have to be in the main pub (as it could be £25 each time if they get someone to man the bar in the skittle alley) but it might be good to try somewhere different?

Dates - Cheltenham is the last week of the month, on a weeknight (normally). So, maybe the second Wednesday evening of each month?

Obviously everything is flexible and nothingís set in stone yet, just discussing it for now  :)

It's a really good idea, but as the area you are talking about  to meet is quite far for us to travel on a monthly basis we probably could only manage to get to a few meetings. If the pub allowed dogs in we could work it in with a geocaching walk during the afternoon - Tilly would never forgive us if we went caching without her!

Perhaps we should organise another skittles event as we haven't had one for almost 2 years, and discuss the possibility of monthly events while there? Might be easier than on the forum.

Funnily enough George also mentioned a skittles evening as well - something to focus on but also a good time to have a chat about meetings. Jenny and George.
