Depending on the date, count me in too...

I can make anywhere from Yorkshire to Oxfordshire... (assuming I'm in the country that weekend) - and London at a push too...

Another possible here, date dependent. I'll bring along one or both of my two Tokais - a Love Rock Relic and an SG Special.

I'd be up for this - is there any idea of a date or location?

So far, I'm looking at a Saturday afternoon & evening in February somewhere in London. Suggestions about where it should be held are welcome.

Hopefully, if it's a success, one of our more Northern members will arrange the next one somewhere a bit further North.

All suggestions welcomed.

What facilities do you think are required?

OK, well we need a room we can use from early afternoon till the evening, it needs to be part of or close to a reasonable hotel/motel for those who are travelling from further away. We need to be able to make a bit of noise, though not necessarily a very loud noise. (Marshalls can be turned down, can't they John?)

The ability to buy tea/coffee/beer etc, would be very welcome. It needs to be easily accessible by both car (adequate car park required) and public transport, preferably a maximum 5 or 10 minute walk from a tube station.

And not too expensive to hire for a day! Have I missed anything? Any suggestions?

Any further moves on this?

In my previous posting I asked 'What facilities do you think are required' and only Stratman replied
with a list. I asked this because I have access to a room which would be very reasonably
priced but it meets almost none of the requirements in the list! Here goes;

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
-
We need a room we can use from early afternoon till the evening - No problem

Close to a reasonable hotel/motel for those from further away. - The hall is in Battersea, SW london.
Reasonable hotels are few and far between in this part of the world.


We need to be able to make a bit of noise, though not necessarily a very loud noise. - Noise can be quite
loud until 21:00hrs approx.

The ability to buy tea/coffee/beer etc, would be very welcome. - I could arrange tea and coffee makng
facilities and canned beer could be made available at cost.


It needs to be easily accessible by both car (adequate car park required) - No car parking next to the place.
It's in a position close to a bridge so parking is in the streets on the other side of the main road. Pay and
display until 18:00Hrs, free after.


and public transport, preferably a maximum 5 or 10 minute walk from a tube station. - 0.9 miles from
Clapham Junction. 2 miles from nearest tube.


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


FYI. The hall is an ex chapel built next to a house in SW London. It is all hard surfaces and consequently,
it's very 'Live'. It can hold about 240 people for a gig or party. It has nice stage but no sound gear.
However if people wanted to jam, this would be possible if somebody brought a kit (and could play)
or I could arrange to hire one. I already have a bass amp there which could be used.

Further comments welcomed.

Chris

I was going to start looking for somewhere now that New Year is over. The lack of proximity to a hotel seems to me to be the biggest problem for those who are travelling to London, and want to enjoy a few beers and stay overnight, and be able to carry their guitars back to their hotel room, rather than having to rely on their car.

Apart from that, it sounds good. So what do the rest of you think?

Come on people! Let's have some indications from all of you who have posted so far - is this venue that has been suggested suitable for you? Will you attend if we arrange something there?

Or would you prefer somewhere else? Where?

Personally, I would prefer somewhere north of the river, but that's just me being selfish. But whatever your views, please say something, or this convention is gonna be dead in the water.....
