There seems to be a few of us manchester folk on here, but no bash?! What gives?

Can I use this to gauge interest and then MB1 and I can organise one (sorry Martin).

Also, include the area of Manchester so we know where to book?

Would be up for this if I can sort babysitting! Blueprint studios is a nice central place with good facilities.

Not fussed on central. Some where with easy parking would help with moving gear etc. That's better personally than being in "town"

No, I drank a lot of wine last night. Was one of those 'surprises' you set yourself up for if you were drunk online the previous night.

I think we should though.

No problem with going further out either. Blueprint has good free parking after 6 on weeknights, not sure about weekends. It's also close to Victoria for train & tram and there's a pub across the road. As far as my experience of rehearsal rooms go, it's very nice - as our singer said "it's even got girls' toilets!". It was just the first place that came to mind when I saw 'Manchester'.

There are however a few of the dreaded stairs! *hides*

Well I'm in the midst of completing a diploma, so my time is goosed as I started 2 months behind my learning group so I'm constantly playing catchup, and our own MB1 is tied up in a new job meaning his shift patterns are up the wall.

Anyone up for carrying the organisers torch?

I'll gladly join in etc, just don't want to make a hash of organising it.

OK, what dates would be preferable to everyone? Not sure how far I can take this, but I'd like this to happen.

What day / evening would everyone prefer?

What band are you in? I go to a huge amount of gigs in Manchester/Salford and was at the Lamp Oil (The Eagle Inn) on Friday.
