Just a point... with less than 4 weeks to go and with 79 people going I am surprised to see that not many have responded to the doodle for restaurant preference:

https://doodle.com/poll/ksxf3mp9mr3xddda

What is happening because I would imaging that if we want to get in almost anywhere we will have to book.

People are grown ups and can make their own decisions. Finding a venue for 80 was not easy and if it had of been possible they would have required a deposit. I for one am not paying a deposit for 8Ē people. No doubt some will withdraw and others will be no shows. People have busy lives and can't always do what they want to do.

As for the doodle. It was a suggestion to help those who wanted it.

@madfish Please don't take my comment as any kind of complaint at all in any way. I for one am hugely grateful for the organisation you and your team have done so far. When you suggested it I don't suppose for a minute you thought it would grow into something this big!

Clearly you, nor any other individual, should be expected to organise a meal for 80 people (or even 8 for that matter if it requires deposits) and I wouldn't expect you to even try. But if we don't get organised between ourselves we may end up with one or two small groups getting bookings and the rest missing out especially as the footy is on the same day. If people don't mind just turning up and seeing what is available then that is of course perfectly fine, but those of us that want a firm booking I suggest we must book ahead.

Does anyone have any suggestions as to what we should do?

@snaxmuppet

Absolute nothing you said.

The facility was/is there for those who want it.

And by no means all my doing. Others have done much much more than me. Including yourself. Regardless, I am sure many will find their own means and ends in the journey and when we are in GIB.

And just a reminder that there is a WhatsApp group for those who wish to join. Let me know and I will send you a link.

That is indeed what I am going to do at a place I want to eat at as it would be a shame to miss out. I would suggest booking

So today I got a you are nearly there let the countdown begin for your trip to Gibraltar but rather than a book airport car parking, do you need to take extra bags email there is a link to MMB then it’s a link to several news articles like one of Mr Hilliar’s updates including the SFO lounge update , how to take your pet on holiday and priority boarding and how it works... anybody else got anything similar or the usual your ur Gibraltar booking essentials?
