OK folks, it’s that time of year again! It’s only a few weeks until Sproutfest takes place for this year :mrgreen:

Date: Saturday 8th December 2018
Venue: The Golden Lion Hotel, Easenhall (near Rugby)

For those that are blissfully unaware, Sproutfest is a Christmas do that we've been holding for many years now & is a bit of a UKBEG tradition where we have the yearly awards ceremony & an auction that raises vital funds for the running of the website.

It is held at The Golden Lion Hotel in Easenhall (near Rugby), where we generally pretend to be civilised human beings (we don't!! :mrgreen: ) enjoying a pleasant Christmas meal together but in reality most people just get hideously drunk (you know who you are) & buy stuff they don't need in our Sproutfest auction, which is no bad thing as it raises vital funds for the running of this site.

There is currently 1 Double room still available (may be a couple more as I'm still waiting to hear from a couple of people) at the hotel if you want to join us & stay overnight or you are more than welcome to attend just for the meal (menu to follow)

I'm afraid I need to collect the money for the meal upfront as if we have late no-shows we have to pay for them from ukbeg funds. You can either call the hotel directly & pay, or I can give you a bank account number to pay into. Please PM me for details.

Cost of the rooms & meal to be confirmed hopefully this week

Please PM me if you fancy joining us, I'll allocate the available room on a first come, first served basis :-) if the hotel becomes full there is also a couple of other hotels fairly close by (taxi ride)

Many thanks
Alison

XB9SX, 2005 model, had it from new but it may have to go soon, I'm not doing enough miles on it.

Are you going to sproutfest?
I have a unique item for the auction, it's of no practical use so should raise plenty of money :D
