Isle Of Man Meet In December?

Tue Sep 27, 2005 3:00 am

Myself and Alex (myt332) are looking into the possibility of hopping across to Ronaldsway to annoy that  grumpy  old  git Skidmarks  Wink
Apparently MAN-IOM is £39 return on Aer Arran.
Would anyone else be interested in attending?

Damn;

I've been secretly hoping for an IOM meet for years, because I've always wanted to visit there. But I'm still a poor student at the moment, so I'll have to wait 'til the 2007 version, or something.

Next flight.... who knows.

Well I've got a mate who's just moved from Croydon to the IOM and am thinking of visiting him before Christmas, so I might be up for it. Hey, me and my mate are both reggae fans, maybe you could bring us over some of the latest dub plates when you haul yourself from the warmth of "The Yard" to the cold of the Irish Sea?!  wink

I could probably be persuaded - depends on whether or not they serve a decent pint of heavy!

Isle of Man. December - Great idea. The more the merrier. when exactly though??

hmm - rustles through addressbook - I know there's a number here for that guy in Uzbekistan who's got a load of old Soviet warheads I can get off him for a good price. Perhaps if some of us all chip in.... Big grin

Rumour has it that when 3W stop SOU-IOM, T3 will move in so theres hope for you yet Atco2b. mind you, you better be prepared to pay business prices lol!

The only party I will throw will be a wake Mr Kirk! I may condescend to take you to The Glue Pot for a pint, however, you'll be buying Big grin

How long are you planning to stay? And where? Bearing in mind I have a shoebox and two large sons. Of course, I could make room in the garage!

I believe it will just be a daytrip due to Aer Aranns delightful 3 return flights a day between IOM and MAN.  Wink
December 5th I think (a Monday)

God sake Kirkie, it's hardly worth going for just a day man, and a Monday as well!  Silly

The Ascot hotel is very nice and relatively reasonable price-wise, at least it was last time I was there.

Tis a good day to choose as it will be my 26th birthday and I'm on holiday that week, so I might look into going on this jaunt.

Sadly (or is that fortuitously?) I will be working. However, I might be able to use a bit of TOIL to join you and maybe show you around the rock - shouldn't take more than a half hour! Big grin

And, in the unlikely event of you wanting to take any aircraft pictures, I'll show you where to go - as it were !

Depends on what dates, but I could always hop over from DUB with RE - or worse, take a ferry with my trusty TM and scare the locals with some Elbonian driving  Wink
