    I've allocated Carl to your car for the Thursday night game.

    What to do between The Dolphins & Colts games

    North America maps now loaded onto the Garmin and locations due to be visited have been logged in and stored.
  3. 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?

    Gameday arrangements

    Thanks for the PM's and posts guys. It looks like we have got enough space available to get everyone who needs a lift to and from the RT Hotel to Gillette Stadium on both gamedays.

    2018 Roadtrip planning thread

    We now tailgate with another large tailgating crew. This is partly why we all try and meet at the RT hotel in morning and travel in convoy to the stadium to ensure that we are all together. The parking lots at Gillette are huge and spread all around the stadium and Patriot Place. I believe that the ticket you have bought includes a contribution towards drinks, but you will need to make a cash contribution towards the food (of which there will be plenty). Tailgating also continues after the game to allow a lot of the traffic to clear before we leave the parking lots.

    What to do between The Dolphins & Colts games

    Hire car is booked, accommodation will be what we can find along the way (motels etc) looking forward to seeing a bit more of the States and visiting a couple of cool venues (and a couple of crap ones) see Cleveland & Buffalo.

    Gameday arrangements

    As per the above, please could you all PM me a preferred email address and mobile number so that I can contact people directly rather than clogging up this thread with transport messages. Mandy has let me have a list of who's attending which games (she does seem to like a spreadsheet), so I already know who's going to be at which games. I will be leaving from the RT hotel for both games (assuming we get back from our other little roadtrip on the Thursday).

    I think the Canadian contingent are possibly going to still be in town

    What to do between The Dolphins & Colts games

    The original plan was to all travel in 1 vehicle and share the driving (minimises fatigue as well as hire & fuel costs). I think we'd possibly go with the minivan even if it was just 5 of us to have that bit of extra room. I've found some good deals for the vehicle including up to 3 extra drivers (just need to sort out how to get a couple of you actually added as it normal for the paperwork for this to be done in person when the vehicle is picked up). The detour into Buffalo isn't a problem, there's talk of paying a visit to Niagara Falls if we have enough time.

    Norwood Hotel now also booked for both games.
  12. Swindon Patriot

    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.

    2018 Roadtrip planning thread

    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.

    2018 Roadtrip planning thread

    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.
  19. (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

    UK Patriots 2018 Superbowl Party (SOLD OUT)

    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.
