Any and all CAG meets have been and gone without a lot of us at least being informed...

 

There is no Birmingham meet this year as far as I know...

 

However, there have been other meets during the last year and especially three months; and the last three years in fact; in various parts of the country which were private. No worries, up to them...

 

It was the same in 2010 when I came out of the coma. As mentioned a callous b'tard made very ungracious comments about me of which it should have been lucky to not get a libel/defamation/slander suit slapped on it...

 

I was ostracised even though I made an innocent enquiry/joke and was absolutely viciously and vehemently slated...

 

As Shelley says BB, let the negative stuff go. The whole idea of CAG and CAG meets is they're open to all. No doubt some people have made friends on CAG and might meet privately but that's up to them. As far as I'm concerned, if it's not open to all it's not a CAG meet. I know I haven't been to one since last years meet in Birmingham.

 

You started this thread asking Birmingham or Wales. Seems to be a few interested, so where's do people prefer? Can't commit myself at the moment, but depending where and when will see if I can manage it ......

It wasn't my intention to rub you up the wrong way Babybear. I think you have mis-interpreted my post.

 

Like I said, be great to meet up

Ok, I'm a big enough girl to stand back and take a breath...

 

5000 words is small stuff for me squaddie and my pleasure :)

 

Caro, you always know how to put me in my place :razz:

 

For housing issues, ie. leaks, damp etc. I have to withdraw my invitation to Wales because I don't want anyone having to camp out in the yard :razz:

 

Shelley181146, Birmingham suits me because it's a through train from Wales...

Birmingham is good for me too.

All we need now is Venue/date/time.

 

I have never been to one before so is there a regular venue?

Jurys is a favourite hotel for the last three years. I'd need to book early 'cos of needing a disabled room 'cos, even though last year they had smoking rooms I don't think they will now unless the legislation hasn't gone through yet...

In the voice of Catherine Tate "nah, you're kidding me..." Juys still has smoking rooms even though refurbished. Example prices Friday 17th August B & B for TWO adults PER ROOM £68! Saturday 18th same terms £78! Non refundable on the Friday is £53.60!!! Please don't mod this post :) And yes, that's per room not per person!

Hi Babybear,

 

Just wanted to say hello!!

 

I have read lots of your post and always feal like you have given great advice, As you can see from my posts I haven't been here long but if what you're saying is true then it's a real shame and I have to admit I have seen some posts from peple who have jumped down peoples throats for the slightest error, there is no need but like Caro says they are know it alls!. I hope that this site doesn't dissappear because of a few nasty people.

 

All the best to you.

 

Myfamily.

 

Hi and welcome to our mad CAG family. Please feel free to come to a meet as you'll find that we're not just know it alls... We're real people with a plethora of different circumstances, backgrounds etc... There are only two small caveat in that pictures are only to be posted with the express permission of CAG members and that you know how to have a good time :)

Also, BB helped me with my first stat Demand set aside. I was overwhelmed by her Knowledge. We have met at a couple of meets and my sweetest memories are of Birmingham and Jury's Inn. I did not got last time because of the Riots. These meets are expensive but it is part of the way I show my appreciation when I can afford to go. Anyone want to arrange another?

The power of saving in dribbs and drabs would maybe help facilitate a lot of peoples needs. Most of us have PayPal and various means of submitting money. A CAG Meet fund, with individual accounts might be a good idea to encourage saving for these costly functions. Hotels and drinks allowance saving group. Would someone like to set one up and then negotiate family rooms with a discount, confident that the money is there upfront when people are committed initially. All they would lose through sudden crisis or unexpected bills is their share of the room money. What do others think?

I've looked at Cardiff and there isn't a comparable hotel that comes close to Jurys in Birmingham. If anyone wants to suggest/research other cities/locations feel free but we really need to start sorting this out to take advantage on the various offers 'specially B & B rates at Jurys Birmingham...

Not everyone is that bad BB and you did get a lift from New St. to save you the taxi fare in 2009.

 

Chester has some good deals on. Holiday Inn at Chester Racecourse offer rooms for 2-3 at less than £50 with buffet breakfast in with that with good reviews. 10 mins. walk from the centre, free parking and wi-fi.
