    Does anyone know dates for any of these?

    The only one I’m currently aware of is in Ireland on Weds March 5th.

    I ask, because I was considering arranging a TRF get-together in Central London for the week before Chelters and wish to avoid clashing with rival attractions.

    Thanks. That would be a good one to avoid, obviously!

    Have it at the Tattershalls Castle Pruf – belting barge and it has a bar too. Oh and a comedy night so I can share my tips :wink:

    I’m not coming over for the gig, carvillshill, though there’s likely to be someone there from Timeform/Timeform-Ireland, I believe. I’ll let you know if I hear more.

    There are two I usually try to get to- one in the Glenroyal Hotel Maynooth and another sponsored by Harney’s bookmakers down in Clonmel- they had the best speakers in the past few years. Apart from those you’d learn more at home with a cup of coco and the ATR website. It’s a bit like the morning line, 55 minutes of dross with the occasional pearl of wisdom….

    I think people – yes, even me – get so excited immediately before Cheltenham that they need little excuse to wallow in the atmosphere of a preview night, even if the comments aren’t the most insightful.

    I’m half hoping that the Southern TRF pre-Cheltenham Brainstorm-all-in-one p1ss-up will be a sort of democratic and argumentative version of such an event.

    Delighted that you will be there, clivex. Some excellent posts of late, by the way (at the risk of being accused of sucking up).

    Wednesday March 5th is the current favourite, but I’ll sit on it for a while.

    Per my PM the other day, Pruf, as long as I’m not podcasting or similar on that date, I should be able to attend and to try to beat my own world record for cradling half a pint the longest.

    Oh yeah, and to try to unpick the Foxhunters and cross-country race for you, if little else. :D

    Hope those deliberations will be available in a downloadable PDF format afterwards to selected Forum members :lol:

    It’s got better by the sounds of it Clive, I’ve started frequenting it so obviously the custom is on the up :wink:

    I’ll be there Pruf, first time in years I’ve been near one of these preview nights.

    Er, this would not be a preview night per se.

    More an opportunity for a good old chinwag about Cheltenham, the universe and everything over a few beers, with perhaps a bit more focus to it than just a conventional p1ss-up.
