My bowling is all cancelled for the foreseeable future. I like my own company and don't mind being housebound in general, but getting out once or twice is needed ... I'm still going if the rest of you are - I sent a message to the Performance Shop guys to say it is happening last night (no reply yet, but they're local and may be there).

Sod it. Yeah. Probably not the wise choice but let's do it. I can't be a hermit for months and need cheering up after my holiday was cancelled. I'll see you guys there :D

Well yeah probably best to avoid handshakes. I'll also check with the pub tomorrow whether they'll be open.

So assume it's on but do check the thread.

Sorry, I might not be able to go. Our grandson already has breathing problems and my wife is not happy about me going out and meeting people.
I still have to go into work 2 or 3 days a week and the chances are much higher there.

It's not worth causing any anxiety over Geoff. Just one of those things. There's always next time!

There’s only one table of two guys in here, which I awkwardly asked if they were from the forum to which they answered no.

Eeek

Phew! I only just got home, the A12 was closed so got to educate people on how easy it is to overtake on even the tightest of country lanes.

Good to see you guys.

:shock: That was a long drive then, mine was relatively easy with largely empty roads ... well, just a few cars. I remembered to fill up at the petrol station (Shell) with £115.9 per litre prices on the way too. 8)

Post by GreySilver Beast »

How about all meeting up in some way :?: , seeing Pubs inside are off limits :(

Maybe do a little drive in some way :roll:

Are there any Pubs/Fast Food in the area doing Take Aways or Roadside Food Vans in the area :?:

Outside Meet would be possible seeing we all have Camping Chairs for Events we go to with the Club :thumright:

Kent Meet - Tuesday ***July TBA***

Post by GreySilver Beast »

***ATTENTION***


Right Boys and Girls I have sorted out a route today from Cobham Services to Boxhill where we can park discreetly and use our camping chairs to social distance from each other according to the GG's =D>

Cobham Services has a big Car Park, so could park down the bottom on the left hand side of the Ramada Hotel where all the Coaches Park :thumleft:

There is enough time to grab something to eat if you like as you have 1hr 59mins before you have to be seen to be driving out of the Car Park by all the Cameras =D>

We could then go in Convoy along the M25 to come off the Leatherhead A243 slip road towards Dorking A24 :arrow: :arrow:

I will of course pull over to give you all a chance to catch up with me, then we make our way to a Roundabout where we take the first exit towards Headley and then onto Boxhill :thumleft:

There is enough parking on top of Boxhill, although not sure if there is a charge after 8pm #-o

We can then park up and get our chairs out and have a right old natter :lol: , also bring some drinks with you if you want too :P

Will post a date up for July :thumright: , so all that remains to be said, is who's interested in joining me on this run :?:
