Summer GTG Saturday 11th July, York

Just finalising details for a Summer 2020 GTG on Saturday 11th July in York, North Yorkshire.

Slight change to the usual format in that this time we are just wearing 1 watch instead of bringing hundreds of watches between us.

Meet around 12:00pm ish, afternoon beers around York, pop into Berry’s VIP lounge for champagne and watch browsing, more beers then a Private Dining Room booked for the night, followed by more booze etc.

There's a race meet on that weekend in York so hotels are booking up fairly quickly (and they aren't cheap). 10 of us have already booked accommodation so date will not be changing if you want to sort your own hotels out.

Anybody interested reply below or PM me. Exact timings and details will be divulged closer to the time.

Our very own banned @Danestaff will be attending again.

Previous RF members who have expressed an interest in attending

Hi Chunky, many thanks for the invite, on this occasion I can’t come as it’s family holiday time and we’ll be away. Hopefully next time, and maybe by then Berrys will have supplied my 5726 in time for me to wear to your gtg.

Hi Ash

Thanks for the quick response.
Hopefully they'll have supplied me with my 5726 as well by then.

Cheers

Ian

Hi Ian,

Appreciate the shout and as mentioned this sounds like a fantastic day. Getting Berry's involved with the collector group is a step in the right direction from my viewpoint.

Apologies I cannot attend due to being down south for a wedding but I am sure it will be a good one.

I'll get you to a GTG sooner rather than later Rick

Berry’s have been involved in the last couple of GTG's. They entertained us in their VIP lounge in Leeds last summer and in Nottingham earlier this month.

Meant to be flying to Greece on this date. Obviously looking doubtful

I’m now stuck inside for the next 12 weeks.

Let’s hope this virus is quickly defeated quickly and we get back to some normality
