Hampshire Bass Bash

Recommended Posts

Can I just express a doubt about holding this in Southampton?

There's not much point holding a bash in a big town or a city - it just makes the traffic worse and the prices higher. In addition, both Southampton and Portsmouth can be a bit of a bugger to navigate if there are any traffic problems or big summer events going on ... it's all that water, y'know.

Hampshire has some lovely smaller places which are just as easy to get to, and where our custom may be more welcome to the venue.

Think Winchester, Andover, Alton, etc.

I'm also a bit puzzled at the idea that we might get 10-12 people. Nik's Shoreham bash a few years back attracted more like 30 IIRC.

a conservative estimate based on current interest from this thread.

Fair enough, but don't go booking a 100SF meeting room for this! ;)

Agreed. I'd like to throw this place into the mix as a possbility.  They often host musicians, and very good beer and coffee too!

Yep, planned far enough in advance at a good, accessible location and I think 20+ people is definitely possible..

I'm up for coming to this one btw..

Can we have a date and a venue then you will know where you really stand.

I am interested but dates are key here, half those listed may drop out on a particular date, but twice that may opt in on another. It'll 2019 soon

We should probably pick a town first? I guess the majority of people in Hampshire live in the Solent area, but those travelling might want it more mid Hampshire (like Basingstoke).  If people wanted South Coast, I could probably rustle up a few ideas around Southampton.

Given that this conversation started in January 2017, and we have yet to decide even which town to hold it in, let along which date, am I alone in wondering whether this is an actual thing?
