OUCH

I seems to be a pretty long tow this time. Couldn't you guys find a place a little closer to Denmark.

What about Poland, we have seen a lot off nice pictures from there ( I do remember that strange lifting device where you drive your boat onto some kind off railway wagon)

Belgium, France, Southern part off UK, Ribes again

If we choose Ribex I will only have to drive for 16 hours to get there ( If I'm speeding) 1.300 Km.

Isn't there a ferry from Asberg to the UK say overnight with cabin so you could travel in style and then much less then 16 hours drive.

Poland would be nice but for sure to far to tow and the lifting device you mention is inland and over 1000 miles away from the UK.

What about South Wales?

Milford/St Davids Head - within cruising range of the NWR, the Cornish RIB Mafia and would make a good or cruise (or tow) for the S(w)R?

I've never cruised it, but heard good things, loads to do and see.

The earlier the better for me/us, as the weekends will start to get busy (I hope)...

D...

P.S. And as for accomodation, if that ferry is still in Pembroke Dock......

Having spent a week in Inverkip in September I do not need convincing but many others do

How many members are from your area? If Inverkip selected can we count on the Scottish members to make all necessary arrangement, ect, ect, ect
Right Here goes,
Accomodation:
B&Bs Inverkip 1 @ £40 ish per night
Largs (about 5miles down the coast) Loads from around £18 p.p.p.n
Greenock(about 5 miles up the coast) Travel Lodges etc from £39.95 per room
Wemyss Bay and Gourock (about 3 miles either side of Inverkip) Static Caravans. Need to find out the price.

Eating:
Loads in Largs, Chartroom at Inverkip Marina, Inverkip Hotel or we coulds go to Bute, Tarbert, Millport(the best curry house ever!!)or the many wee haunts available by boat.

Fuel: Diesel only available at Inverkip however I could arrange for transport of cans to BP filling station at Greenock. Largs has both Diesel and petrol available quay side but a inflated cost.

Im sure we could arrange a meeting room if we can firm a date, numbers and for how long we need it. I would be willing to help with the organisation this end if this is a go'er.

Guys thanks for the input so far. Inverkip /Largs Scotland looks promising

South Wales another promising location only we need more info

We will need a show of hands from the members that a RibNet conference is of interest and which location is best suited

JK can you help here

having looked at the map and inverkip looks a great place

not sure you would get a large amount of people willing to travel that far but if they did i am sure the scenery would be worth it

what would be the objectives of the event, how long would it run for, what would be covered, who would be there in terms of presenters/trade etc

would this be the first rib net event?

Hugh

My guess it would have to be a long weekend, perhaps some would like to stay on and make a week of it

The first conference was in Plymouth in 2003 and it was a great event
read about it here
