Right, seeing the other thread is really for those who are interested in wanting to go, id like this thread to be used for when and how. Ive put down two methods of travel. To cut costs really would be meet in Ypres, coach hire etc from blighty isnt hard to arrange but would mean extra cost.

Can you put down when next year would be best.

Any Bank Hol weekend will do me, failing that, any time during school hols as I'll have to arrange sprog cover, which Mrs can do during the holidays.

I'd have a preference for the coach from Blighty, only having the one veh, and Her Ladyship will be needing it. If the coach is in attendance for the duration, I think it would simplify carting the bods about, and making sure everyone arrives at the same places at the same time.

I can do whenever suits everyone else.

Ref driving over there, we could get an idea nearer the time of who is leaving from where and whether anyone has room for passengers.

Want a Legion Guide? We take most ATRs as well as run battlefield tours and pilgrimages for grown ups.

We can also fix travel from the UK if you want a coach load.

Was just thinking the same! I have no issue with driving, although whether anyone is brave enough to get in the car with me is another matter!!!

Anytime or date is fine by me, I'm easy on that front.

May bank hoil would be good. Splitting the cost sharing a car would be the best way ahead.

Ditto, though having already driven several ARRSErs, none have died yet! :D I'd be leaving from the South East (London / Kent) and would have room for 2 people plus luggage.

How about making this thread sticky?

At this rate, I think between us we could easily get transport sorted.

Dozy, you haven't seen me drive! ;)

no probs my end for driving either from midlands area

but might have a full car not sure yet

dates let me know
I'd presume the tour will need a bus to ferry people around over there, possibly we could hire this from a Northern town like Leeds, with pick ups in Sheffield, Nottingham/Derby (Long Eaton), Leicester, Northamption and that Service Station just before the tunnel for anyone else wanting to use the bus for the tunnel crossing

Got your PM mate thanks, wont be able to check aol until i get home bout 10-30pm.

Polar Im after organising a coach and guide for when we get to ypres, and accomodation (through hopefully FM) so everyone is in one place, if that fails then will look to home maybe poppy travel, but folks please be warned costs would rise, im not doing this so it ends up that

1/ it costs to much.
2/ people pull out due to above.
3/ it becomes a logistical nightmare.

Already ive had pms saying how much, wheres the coach leaving from, what company am i, and a few others in the same mode.

To set the record straight, im not a company, im just an arrser orgainising this event, i aint a clue how much yet, not even when, though im thinking may bank holiday 2008.

Wont be able to tell you more till i read FMs email and talk to him.

Scarletto,

Can you ignore my ideas, I was just enquiring if other people would be interested in one coach/minibus, as us Northerners are tight sods.
 
#18
Polar, all ideas are valid mate. Seeing i dont drive, well not allowed too anymore, and live in the north too, obviously a coach would be a good idea, however as i said i really want to keep costs down for you all.

However if we have to go that route then so be it.

March 2008 will be a great time to remember the Retreat/Ludendorff offensives?

Why not all meet in central location and then drive around in an Arrse convoy?
 
#20
Cuddles, probably a bit to early in the year??? however again depends on factors i cant deal with till later on, good job im getting made redundant then i can put more time n effort into this :)

The Coach i think is preferable as it means, no one gets lost, unable to park or left behind :) Plus means the guide can do his stuff without people turning up late etc.
