    All this is academic guys - There is only one colour of rose that matters - the same one that our great country uses as well!

    Coincidence - I think not!

    The only reason they use the red one is because the white wouldn't show up on a white background! So the red was second choice, sorry to put you on a downer!

    :rolleyes:

    So the red was placed above white then .....:naughty: with the explicit implication that we are better, therefore placed atop of any pile ......:red: :red: :red:

    Either colour is better than what the rest have :beerchug: (gotta make peace before i come over)

    Count me in for a meet dates depending.

    All joking aside its good to see a bit of friendly banter about where is best (this side of the hills obviously :naughty: ) without it falling into an angry free for all :BlueTeamE .

    Ok you got me on the rose but where did that yellow fluff in the middle come from :dunno:

    Ah welcome to the skirmish Stu

    Good to have another white on board :naughty:


    We might be able to take a night walk if we`re still relatively sober and see those badgers I mentioned in my first ever posts. There`s a chance of deer and fox on the way too.

    Erm I'm a bit of an imposter in these parts (I was born in Papua New Guinea!!!), though my old dad is yorkshireman - he's from the east ridings.

    It'd be grand to see the badgers - I'm working hard on getting a pass out. We'll see what the girls here at home say (Mrs Redcollective and the little one).

    Before this thread turned into the battle of the roses I mentioned I was trying to get us in at my permission for a regular meetup.

    Well the good news is we`ve got the green flag :red:

    I suggested to the landowners that we`d start with around 8 - 12 of us and see how we get on, then look to increasing that number later depending on interest.


    So let`s get some dates down for the first "Yorkshire Meet" and then find out who`s up for it.


    Incase you missed the link first time round it`s here http://www.blackhillscampsite.org.uk/welcome.htm

    There is an online calendar on the site so we can see when it`s quiet. I have just noticed though that there`s a fair bit of refurbishment going on over the next six months, we could either offer to help out a little or just get out of there early doors.

    At the moment I`m doing call-out every three weeks so I probably won`t make it those weekends, that might change though and I can always swap with someone at work.

    Okay a few dates which I think would be suitable either because I`m not on call or there`s nothing going on at the site.

    Saturday 23rd February - There is stuff going on during the day but an evening meet (17:00) could be good

    Saturday 1st March - nothing going on this week

    Saturday 15th March - Evening meet again

    Saturday 22nd March - nothing going on again

    Saturday 5th April - nothing on again but a bit close to SWMBOs birthday :rant:

    1st or 22nd March is best for me - 15th is the weekend of the Outdoor show at the NEC (I'm going on the Friday, but I guess some people will probably go on the weekend...?)
    I wouldn't dare suggest you incur the wrath of SWMBO - you should save the brownie points for when you really need them... ;)
