I'll put out an invitation in November to all and sundry via an announcement on the forum. The mods and I then select a winner to stage the AR for the summer.
Saying that we only had one entry for the last two years, so voting didn't take long.
Start thinking about it now and let me have your plans in November.
John

Surely a MORE accessible AR is better? Considering this year's turnout anyway.

I think that will affect the turnout.

I see no reason why you couldn't do both though.

Doesn't matter where it is, it depends if people can be a$$ed to go. This years AR was in Central, Southern England. Close to the M4, A4, M3, A303 & A30.
M4 goes to the M5, which joins the M42 & M6 (North & Wales)
M3 joins the M25 and every motorway the joins onto there (South East, Kent, Essex, London, East of the country & North as well)
A303/A30 goes right down to Cornwall (South, South West

So i think the transport links were great, more the lack of interest from people needs to be addressed.

LOM2 made a trip down from Newcastle to join us & Lenny came from MK. The rest of us were probably within an hour or 2 of the location.

Many people are happy to moan about it but not actually get up and put something together. The reason we put a bid on for this year was because no one else had. We took it upon ourselves to continue a tradition this forum has had going on for years.

I needn't remind you that I also put in a bid for this year, because nobody else had at the time.

What I meant, was that an AR abroad would mean less people likely to attend. I meant more accessible than that, not more accessible than this one.

Sorry that I wasn't clear enough.

I'm glad you appreciate me making the trip. Not sure if I should tell you it took me an hour and a half to get home or not 😊
I think the location this year was perfect. Probably within 2 hours of about 50% of the UK population and still rural enough for some quiet roads.
