Christmas Beers ....

Yeah, sorry to bring up the C-word in early November.

But, how about trying to set a date for us all to get together for some beer (or whatever you fancy yourself) over the Christmas period. I know that's going to be a Herculean task to find a date that suits everyone, but even if we can get one that suits most people that would be great.

So, Fridays or Saturdays are probably the best. There are 7 weekends between now and Christmas, so that's 14 dates. Surely there's one date in there that would suit the majority:

Friday 8th November
Saturday 9th November
Friday 15th November
Saturday 16th November
Friday 22nd November
Saturday 23rd November
Friday 29th November
Saturday 30th November
Friday 6th December
Saturday 7th December
Friday 13th December
Saturday 14th December
Friday 20th December
Saturday 21st December

Venue suggestions also welcome, though I think our usual is pretty successful as a venue this past while.

Edit: Poll added - tick all that apply.

You know there's loads of dates there and only one that actually suits me, so prob best to just organise amongst yourselves folks.

Christmas ain't a good time for meeting up on my end what with kids, pantos, etc. :/

I’d be up for this. Either of the first two weekends in December would suit.

November I’m pretty free aswell but Christmas drinks would feel a bit wrong!

Sure vote anyway, if you haven't already done so. You never know.

Would be good to make some provisional bookings which we can always cancel. Venues do be jammed in December.

I'd say you'd be doing well to book somewhere even now. The sooner a date is picked the better.
