Who else is up for getting the most out of the weekend by getting down early and going to sabre sales.

and if time permits the excellent D-day museum

It has tanks and guns you can clamber all over so it may be worth ringing them about the possibility of turnign up in kit (for those that want pics of themselves in a real LCT!)

I wouldn't go in kit unannounced though, especially axis kit...

Yup, if we set off at stupid o'clock on saturday, we can get there for lunchtime, have a couple of hours in Sabre, then a wander round the museum.

The D-Day museum is pretty good, but there are others as well. Down the end of Southsea beach (same road as the D-Day museum is on) you have the Royal Marines museum, then of course there is the Historic Dockyard (well worth a visit) and then the Royal Armouries artillery museum up at Fort Nelson (next fort along from UCAP on Portsdown Hill)

If that ain't your thing, then go to the pub. The Still & West down on the hard does decent food, and has great views across the harbour :)

For the notts midlands contingent why dont we all try and get there for mid morning

Have a few hours in sabre, all meet up in the same pub for lunch then go the museum, then see victory and the docks?

As for the evening social...

Is Steve doing his film thing again and will portas casino be open?

I might bring the game 'zombies' if anyone fancies it....

Or whats the possibity of a CoD5 zombie challenge on a projected game screen?

Yes, we are hoping to bring a projector again - I think the plan was for a scary film but it's whatever you want really!

I just remember it being tricky to hear the film with all the socialising on so thought a 'challenge' of the CoD5 'nazi zombie' game could be a laugh, like who can survive longest?

Not sure i'd be willing to run my xbox down there in the cold and damp, tbh, they're delicate little flowers at the best of times...

I'll bring an X-Box if necessary. Dave, if you could bring your projector that would be excellent.

Someone might need to bring the game though. I only have an old X-Box by the way.

Plus, you need to complete the game to open up nazi zombies.



When I want your opinion - I'll tell you what it is!
