For those of us not attending the Hudson Bay or Bust madness I am organizing the Plymouth Bay or Bust MINI Meet. We'll meet in Hingham on Route 3A just south of Boston, cruise Route 3A and some of the coastal roads to South Plymouth. We'll end at the British Beer Company on Route 3A in Cedarville, MA where we will dine on English fare of Pastys, Bubble and Squeek and Bangers and Mash. We'll slake our thirsts in toasty comfort with ice cold beer or properly drawn and temperate British ales and stouts.
We will toast the madness of them what are heading into the northern lights. Cell phones will be in order to ring up our hearty and frozen mates.

Tentative schedule:
-Meet 10:30 a.m. at Nantasket Beach. See the attached pdf .
-Cruise southward to Cedarville in South Plymouth. 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. with a couple of stops along the route.
-Lunch and libations at BBC, Route 3A, Cedarville, MA www.britishbeercompany.com from 1:00 to 2:30 or 3:00 p.m.
-Disband and make your merry way home in a warm and toasty MINI.

The private room at the BBC will seat 35. If we have more we can overflow into the other part of the restaurant. Please show your interest here.

FYI: NOT NEEDED:
-Battery warmers
-Long underwear
-Tow ropes
-Tire Chains
-Soviet Army Siberia Overcoats

Count me in - Can't wait to try a hand pulled ale! Do I need to Pre-register? Don't invite Baker - That way maybe he'll show and we can snub him...
...or maybe not. :silver:

I guess Gavin & I are required attendees!?
But of course! Unless you are in Antigua or someplace like that as you Brits often are.

Well, don't use this as your Cape visit because Cedarville is still about 8 miles from the canal. We could make a dash down and over the bridge just to say you did it.
Plan ahead. It's good to have something to look forward to. You can plan for MOT right? Oh yeah, send me some money so I can send you a Pre-Registered T-shirt.

Doh..! You mean the BBC is not on the Cape..?
Actually we know people who moved down there, so this could be a good excuse to go and see them. I have been over the bridge once too - last winter when Jane was ice diving in Hathaway's pond, I was shore support. That involved standing on a frozen lake feeding out line to tethered divers and boiling water to revive them when they came back up all during a just-above-freezing drizzling rain all day... so I don't really count that as a trip to the Cape..!

And the 19th is a black out date on my ski pass so I won't be skiing either!
Pre-register me at 115%.

I'll also offer my services, if you can not partake in one of the three ingredients above, I will gladly take your share off your hands for you.

Hmm might need to bring someone to drive me home safely... ;)
