Easter Bank Holiday

With 4 Days off for Easter coming up - does anybody fancy a meet up and doing a run somewhere on or around the Island (IOW) depending on tide and weather ?

They play a version of that in Derry.

Unlike yours, it's quite straightforward. Basically it's empty all the bottles in the pubs (into themselves) and then throw 'em at the coppers and then bate seven shades of sh1te out of each other. Quality

... and it's more of a weekly event - so they're always in trim

Easter

Well, I ain't kicking no bottles
I would love a wizz out.
To choose the day would it be best to see what the weather is like closer to the week-end?
