    In which case rather than official G2G5 or 6 should we bill it as a seperate special centenary G2G abroad? And then still do something big but UK based for G2G's 5 & 6?
    Or run a G2G aborad and one here at the same time?

    (sorry waffling a bit but I'm aware that no matter how much notice etc we give not everyone will want to go abroad for various reasons and I know the point of G2G's is to make them as accessible as possible for everyone).

    I would love to go to our Chalet. and I really don't think I will have another offer locally in that period.

    So that would be great! But equally I would enjoy a UK G2G as well.

    would that be April or Sept/Oct 2010?
    I'm rapidly losing track!

    Just to add there is 'Guides Get Away' to Switzerland, which is in Feb 2010 (for Thinking Day), which has a day at Our Chalet but not staying there.
    It could be very cool to do the 20:10 thing there though........

    :::wanders off to think about setting up some sort of poll.........:::

    One suggestion...and this really is forward planning... and may just make everything more complicated...have G2G7 (that's April 2011) abroad. Thinking as well Our Chalet may be pretty booked up for 2010!

    Well October 20th 2010 is a Wednesday.

    it's fairly likely that half term would be the following week (Mon 25th - Fri 29th), so actually it prob wont be booked up for that day!

    Thinking Day is a Monday in 2010 (the Guide thing looks like it's during the half termy period too, it finishes on the Sunday 21st, for obvious reasons really). Easter time would probably be a better bet than Thinking Day I would have thought, if we chose to go then.

    I think it will depend on a number of factors - for any event to be held on 20/10 then peeps will need to be available midweek, regardless of what we decide to do.

    Just a few things for people to consider.

    my understanding is that there will be a mass renewal of the promise at 20:10 on 20/10 in 2010

    so that might be a date to avoid as there will presumably be lots of events going on for that!

    well 20th October wasn't my suggestion technically.........!

    Just thought that if we did want to do something abroad etc, regardless of the date, then best to decide early on. It can be set aside for another time of course.

    Mexico sounds amazing though - really wish I knew what was going on in my county/div/district (theres a meeting in Jan apparently.......)

    And, if there are Irish members on here, which I'm sure there are, it would be local for them! I've never been to Ireland, and it would be good to go.

    ooooo now i like the idea of ireland!!!!

    but i have to confess i agree with dawny on having several uk based ones instead. maybe scotland, n.i, n. eng s.eng and wales????? as suggested we could have a sort of web cam link up too????? however we might not be able to get them all at the same time!!
