i have no argument with the NVM being in the UK, thats seems the most appropriate, and the best way to get the maximum number of people attending. (that defines National imho)
any other rides (including outside of the UK) are best done on a seperate basis.
and as far as a National meet is concerned, i'll go anywhere Nationally. my decision is based on 30% what i'd like to do and 70% on a meet up with people wherever it is. no point in hair splitting over the destination....no one is going to take us anywhere terrible (although i draw the line at a tour of Milton Keynes)
but we have no commitee on here as far as i know, (and don't need one) and i certainly havnt been to any official meeting, so its a bit odd saying there was a meeting, with no one informed about it.....if there is a commitee, what did they decide about the ride wev'e just done
iirc, it was an independant decision by Myself and Sylvester to get the ball rolling in the absence of anything else being put forward
there isnt usually a big fuss on here anyway about where to go, seems to depend on 1 or 2 suggesting an idea, and being available/up for it, and most are happy to go along, thers nowhere in the UK thats out of reach to any of us.
