Right lads...

Since I'm winging my way over in that direction for a couple of weeks for an officer's exchange, I thought I might see about setting up some sort of inter-forum drinking session.

My schedule is still up in the air, and I think I'm looking at spending most of my time in the Bovington area (And there will definitely be a gathering there: At least two of the fora I'm on are tank-appreciators and we will be visiting the museum), but would be surprised if I'm not spending an evening in London at some point.

This will occur between Sept 17 and Oct 2.

If interested on being kept abreast of details as they're hammered out, drop me a PM with your email address in it.

Dorset?

It's about 3-4 hours for the nearest person on this forum. Where else are you going?


Dave

Would tanknet be one of them?

Bovington's a bit too far away, but if you are near London, then I'm sure something could be made to happen

Sept 25th is shoot day at Bisley for the high power boys. I'm sure you could persuade one or two of us to have a beer with you there. It's about 1/2 way between Bovingdon and London.

And you'll most likely not get more ARFcomers together in one place than at a high power day.

I went to The Junior Leaders Regiment Royal Armoured Corps

I love Bovington, can remember learning how to Paracend on the field next to the Tank Museum

But that was back in 1982

Is it really so long ago

Well, sure enough, it seems that my 'open weekend for visitors' is Sept 24/25. Got one or two lads coming over from Ireland, a Tank-Netter or two from London and Lulworth...

Most of us will be at Bisley shooting a 600yd regional match on the 25th. Not too far from Bovingdon.

Well. today, now.

We're apparently going to The Victoria(Pub), Strathearn Place.

Be there 19:15 or so, onwards. I'm the 6'5 guy in the blue shirt that says 'Army' on it.
