I take it the title should read "Drivers Meeting 2016 date choice" . I got a bit confused when I read it last night 3/4 of the way through a bottle of vino... :lol:

Either is fine for me.

The DM usually takes 4-5hrs to get through, so it's unlikely anyone will want to argue and whinge, sorry, put across their valid points of view for that length of time, and then attend the NEC, but if there's a large response to the contrary then maybe we can look at it :-)

Good point Mike, potentially the southerners (or near French in your case ;-) ) could all congregate somewhere daarrrnn sarrff and participate remotely via video link?

If enough wishing to do so, we can see if we can accommodate?
