Train?
Also, I'm considering block booking the gym for every other Sunday in the summer, depending on whether or not people will think they can make it enough :)

The train to Maidstone takes over 3hrs from Basingstoke (guess this gym and ain't too far form there)

eh ..there's no direct train run, I have to go into London then Maidstone.
I only do this trip when I spending a whole weekend with family.

its a mission and half for just a few hrs bocking

 otherwise I would.. sooo be there  :)

Bit of an update, and I need your opinions...
I rang them up and had to speak to some manager woman, and she said that they'd been letting us book the hall for the past 2 years in the wrong way.
She said we could either A) Come into the gym 3 days or closer to the actual session to book it in person, as opposed to 7 over the phone, and we have to pay up front, or B) Become a member for £37 a year which will allow us to book 7 days in advance over the phone or on the internet - as we had been doing before.
Bit p**sed with these people and looking for your opinions - this gym isn't the best but Cascades in Gravesend has their hall shut until March/April...
I can't personally go to Gillingham on friday to book it - so unless someone's willing to go in and pay up-front on Friday/Saturday then recuperate the money at the actual meet, I'm afraid I'll have to call this off. We can of course always just have an outdoor meet if the weather's good and no-one's willing to go in and book this.
Thoughts please!

Another update for you guys!
Toddy has kindly volunteered to go down to the gym and book it on *EDIT* Saturday, which should be fine. The meet is full steam ahead :) If the gym is booked, the meet will be transferred outdoors.
This meet should be pretty cheap as we have quite a few people coming!

I will hopefully be arriving at about 3, depending on how things progress, and will message my number to anyone who doesn't have it - just in case the hall is completely booked on sunday.
Look forwards to it! :)
