21st/22nd may would be my preference

Sounds good Drew! I would say to meet up on the route but we are heading south west from Shrewsbury and having lunch at Crossgates probably. Up to you really?

I've also trimmed the dates down to a few select ones now. Apologies to those that only had names down on the dates removed. My preference is to go with the 7th/8th at the moment as I've been checking various hotels and it seems several are sold out on the 21st, so there may be a large event on that I don't know about. I'm tempted to pull this one out too. (Will do some digging and see whats up)

Will confirm a final date this saturday so we can get booked up.

If it's of any use the Aberystwyth Park Lodge Hotel is one our engineers have used in the past. They look to still have rooms but £95 a throw. Might be able to swing a bit of a discount for bulk booking. It's not exactly the Dorchester but it has a good size car park.

Ive stayed there before i think, its got 2 horses heads statues as badge or above door? its ok, pretty average 90's style premier inn from what i remember. Floral style curtains etc straight from keeping up appearances lol Bar looked really good but then menu and food reminded me of a blackpool b+b that coach trips use. Car park was decent but is right next to the local mcdonalds, a fleet of rx8 may attract some attention from there regulars.......

I know Aber well as I was at uni there :) Park lodge is ok, but its a bit outta town really and as mentioned its next to a busy roundabout and mcdonalds. Normally people make their own decision where they are booking. I'll list a few suggestions up this weekend.

Just a little question on this too, our people bringing along there partners? I know mine liked to come along to MR2 drives so their a large possibilty she will be intrested in coming, just may affect my plans for the staying over and sunday attendance as if she does and cant get off work we will have to go home sat night as she works sundays 9am. Not a massive drama as aber only about 1 and half hours anyway from my house.
