Could be those too. The Lapworth banter managed an ostrich egg after all

Richard


Hmmm! Am thinking about breakfast and come to no conclusions although I've had Creamcheese's Dad inching towards a request for some of Beaman's finest Bridgnorth Bacon today so please can you bring the mega frying pan please Richard :) I think it's going to come in handy!

Anyway, went off for wander to Audlem today and came to the conclusion that if we are more than about 20 we will be struggling in the Shroppie Fly so investigated the Lord Combermere where I ran into Creamcheese's Dad as above. The Lord Combermere (TLC) is in the town square about 600 metres or so from the cut and I think it will be better suited to a crowd of us wan dering around a bit clutching beer. And the lunch was much nicer than the Shroppie and larger too.

So any thoughts? I am wondering about food too - shall I see how much it will cost to have a buffet supper f'rinstance? Generally the food cost is between £7.00 to £15.00 for mains in the evening - most tending towards a tenner. Or shall I organise a Banter Survivors' lunch and we sort out our own scran in the evening?

ETA that'll be a Survivors' Sunday lunch as you won't be a Survivor until then!

Sorry, didn't see this until now - I was expecting early arrivers to have tea and scones with me on Cobbett who will be open for visitors from Friday evening onwards in any case ...

Certainly not, we will need to rehearse - food always on tap (neatly balanced too)!

Please! I'll get an extra bag of coal for the Rayburn and another gas cylinder too :cheers:

Does that mean he demanded you brought some bacon? :lol:

And I'll grass on ya and say that according to my pops, your calling into the Lord Combermere lasted a couple of hours :cheers:

The couple that run the pub are lovely, and I'm sure they'd sort something out food-wise. I've only had food there once, but it was fantastic right dow to the homemade horseradish sauce.

We'll definitely be there for your 21st Jill :D

Well he was actually too polite to actually ask ... although now I come to think about it ...

It was an in-depth visit - actually lasted as long as a black coffee, a salmon and creamcheese ciabatta, bowl of chips (hangs head in shame) and another black coffee! Had a lovely time though - as I'm back at school my conversation is now with evil teenagers so it was lovely to talk to grown-ups again. Not sure that Thea counts!

I shall wander back again when the 'Will of the Banter Attendees' is made clear to me ....

Hi Wiggly, We'll take you up on your offer of floor space, but would prefer if we were bunked up together rather than with any of those other nice people :P

Pan at the ready, let me know if there is anything else you want.

Hi Jill
Been looking at the logistics/finances/work needing to be done to the boat/time etc etc
and I think sadly it's unlikely Lise and I will be able to make it :(
If things change nearer the time I will let you know

Lise and I are now the custodians of an 1895 Bantock boat "Coronation", this will revert to her original name all in good time

Lots of jobs to do, but we are happy to be back on the Cut with good friends

Okay Sue , you and Richard are welcome to the dinette and I've got the air mattress under the tugdeck. Bazza's in the back cabin - not sure where Pete'll go but as he's my brother so he can curl up somewhere or other on the floor. If I get the books under control there'll be space in the saloon.

We'll have a count up for breakfast closer to the event but I've recruited Bazz for Lincolnshires, I'll do the bacon so maybe eggs or black pudding?

I've also got an answer from Ellen - she's not with us in the evening but will be arriving at Nantwich station on Sunday in time for the Banter Survivors' Lunch ...

Well my route planner says it's about a 300 mile round trip......

So probably a bit far for the boat in late November, when one of us has a full time job.

But yes, we'll have to settle for driving, and aim to be there.

Can you cope with a couple of vegetarians ? :blush:
