    Hi All

    With the upcoming round of area competitions just around the corner - I've been contacted by several members who have told me that many of you at have plans to meet up with one another during these next few weeks...

    Don't forget to drop a note here to tell us your story... we'd all be delighted to hear your 'Meeting Up' tale!!.. from beer 'n ale stories, surprise result stories through to pathetic adjudication stories and ..."my gosh, I didn't expect him/her to look like that" or ... "you look nothing like your avatar you know!!"

    How's about a e-Beer for the most interesting story then eh???

    I'm sure there are some interesting threads to come... :D

    I think afew of us from the NE are coming down to Burton on the Sunday, so can someone let the barstaff know as to get a boatload of extra ale in. We have some serious drinkers in our party, no names mentioned? :wink: :wink:

    Will anyone dare come to the NE area contest. it doesnt seem to be a popular venue to visit. But i can guarantee a fantastic beer up in the pubs in the square opposite.

    Too right. When we won in 2000 I left my phone in the Boot and Shoe. Went back there on the Monday to collect the phone and had no recollection of a previous visit...

    Pics on the website, of course.

    Having experienced both the Northern and Midland Areas as a player, i can categorically declare the Midlands Area as being absolutely pathetic in comparison to the Dolphin Centre.

    FIrstly the venues, Burton Town Hall is a horrible place and if there was a fire during the contest, a large proportion of the UKs bands would wiped out, trapped inside. And its GOT NO BAR!!!! :evil: :evil: :evil: :evil: :evil: :evil: :evil: :evil: :evil: :evil: :evil:

    Dolphin Centre, has a swimming pool (when i was younger early draw meant time for a swiming session before results, freeing my dad up for more important duties. in the bar.) IT HAS A BAR :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: good bar atmosphere too.

    Burton has got a lot of pubs in the locality and a pub crawlesque map is supplied, but to be fair, they are all pokey little dives full of locals who dont quite understand whats hit them. It also means that all the bands become dispersed.

    Darlo though has a few good pubs in close proximity and an internal bar. while the beer isnt as good as burton, the band's remain quite well interspersed. any pub in which you find buckshot in your Game Pie must be good!

    I really hope i get up to darlington this year (pull a sickie at work) cos it has a lot more atmosphere and general banter than burton. i think the fact there are less bands helps this.

    just my personal view and opinions.

    anyone wishing to buy me a pint at burton is welcome to. i will be loud, tall, drunk and oozing studentness. i will also be rambling incomprehensibly in geordie!
