  1. A couple of us are contemplating a "Roadtrip - Roadtrip" between the Dolphins game on the Sunday and the Colts game on Thursday night. This would be to do a trip to The NFL Hall of Fame in Canton Ohio and possibly also take in the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland. It's a fair old way there and back, but could be done in the time available. Are any other of this years roadtrippers who are doing both games possibly interested in coming along?

    What to do between The Dolphins & Colts games

    According to Google maps its a 1,346 mile round trip from Norwood to go to Canton first, then on up to Cleveland and back via Buffalo along the I90. Could be done with sharing the driving (Neil excluded from driving due to being a new driver). Chance to see a bit more of the country and try a few Diners, Drive-ins or Dives. Also keeps the costs down with everyone sharing the car & fuel costs. Thelma & Louise can stay at home.

    Just checking Howard, it's that old thing about us speaking the same language, but sometimes meaning different things. As long as there's two separate beds in the room (what we'd call a twin room) that's fine. I know that's how they were on the last trip I did, but those where the days when we stayed at The Courtyard in Norwood.

    When you say Double Bed Rooms, do you mean rooms with 1 double size bed or rooms with 2 beds ? Just thinking of the sharers who if its the first case, would need to be very good friends

    Wow, this would be the first one you've missed for quite a while. You'll definitely be missed.

    Well that negotiation was easier than expected, application has gone in to Mrs Laz, so hopefully back on the RT after a 4 year break.

    This could cause some upset in this household over the next few days. Looks like I may have some serious negotiating to do.
  10. (IP: 82.20.190.143) Posted January 6, 2016 (edited) This years Superbowl Party will once again be hosted by the Marylebone Sports Bar & Grill on Sunday 4th February 2018. At this point in time, we have exclusive use of the Scarlett Bar, providing we have a minimum of 30 people. With some slight rearranging of the seating we can get a maximum of 40 people in this area. Therefore places will be on a first come basis (receipt of payment being the determining factor) Other factors are basically the same as last year, so the cost is an all inclusive £30 per person, which covers admission to the SB & G (remember they have a £10 per person door charge on superbowl night). Food as per the set menu below and service charge (again SB & G usually add 12.5% to all food bills, all the time) Food is: Cheese Nachos with dips on the side Chicken Wings, with Carrot & Celery sticks and dips Plain Burger in a Ciabatta Bun. Mixed bowls of French Fries & Chunky Chips BBQ Baby Back Ribs (usually enough for a couple each) Payment in full will need to be made to me by Monday 22nd January 2018 Remember, this event will take place whoever is in the Superbowl. If the Pats are there, like last year, then it's a bonus and makes it an even better night. There is a Travelodge literally next door to the venue, but they don't seem to have any really tempting deals on at the minute. There are several other budget hotels within a fairly short distance of the SB & G, or you just get the first train out of London on the Monday morning. Please indicate your interest here and also PM me a current email address and I'll send the bank details to make payments (same as last year for any returning people) List of Attendees (Confirmed & paid) Swindon Patriot + 4 WelshLancsPat Grecian Patriot Deadly36 Patriotsjay JVTUK Tamish Swiss Patriot Carl03 Wycombe Patriots Darius87 Jaco mablc001 + 4 rob@foxboro + 1 Buddfox Simon89 + 1 Glasgowpat + 1 Nedpears WilforkPlanet + 1 Old Glory Matt + 3 Warren + 1 Waspie Rossitron

    Thank you to everyone who attended last nights event (wasn't quite the party we hoped for). I hope everyone enjoyed their evening if not the final result. It was really good to meet up with some old friends once again and to welcome some new people along. I hope to see some of you at other events that may get arranged in the future. Particular thanks to those who made some serious journeys to there, those of you way up north, the other side of the wall and of Markus coming all the way from Switzerland. So we're on to "2018 Season" now, lets hope we manage to pick up some defensive talent either in free agency or the draft. Congratulations to all those that got lucky with the squares game (still haven't been able to win my own game yet)

    Hi Neil I should be at the venue by 10pm. I imagine a few of the others may also be there by then, or round the corner at The Allsop Arms.
