Apologies for the non-PC theme this time.

The next test of the human capacity for real ale will take place on Saturday 24th March in Horwich, kindly arranged by Transition Town Bolton.

We will be pushing ourselves to the limit in search of the ultimate drinking performance. Not paid for by the taxpayer unfortunately, but very happy to sell spectator tickets to anyone who wants a good laugh.

Andy I can't believe you could be so un-PC. But I'll come anyway. Wink

Afternoon start folks. Very Happy

Hello All

I've checked out the pub selections for suitability using my advanced analysis skills......

Q: Does target pub sell beer?
A: Yes
Result: Accepted!

So - count me in

I'm getting excited about this already. Very Happy

Been at a Transition meeting tonight and a couple of new people may come along to our Paralytic Olympics on 24th.

So do we have a more specific meet-up plan for this? Which venue? What time?

I'm thinking along the lines of early evening start, rather than afternoon-plus-evening-totally-irresponsible-bender. I have a diet and exercise plan to think of.... see sig
Andy - I'm guessing that there are better ways to travel between Bolton and Bury than via central Manachester, if not then get in touch

Regards Chris

To be honest I haven't yet figured out how I'm getting there/back, the bus will no doubt figure although I'm not sure of times etc.

I have left the whole day free so I can start as soon as someone fires the gun Smile

Apparently Bolton are playing Blackburn at home, so we need to avoid trying to get to Horwich at the same time as the supporters! I still favour a mid afternoon start if possible, but you can meet us anytime Chris. Smile

Does anyone know if the football starts at 3pm? If so, we can aim to get there just after that because they'll all be in the ground by then? I'm told they won't be going to the pubs that Boyd has suggested. I'll ask him where we should meet.

We'll be getting the train so I'll get back to you about definite arrangements.

Very Happy Very Happy

Hi ES

Yes, it's a 3PM kick-off for the football. I'm expecting to show up about 7.... so if there isn't a precision plan, I'll just call you or Andy to get the location around that time.

Cheers, Chris

Apparently Blackrod station is closest to Horwich, so we're arriving at 3.12pm and probably walking to Horwich, but there's also a bus.

We won't be staying out all night as its an early start.
