The original deal we had with the pub was that we would have an evening meal as a group as a way to put money behind the bar and as payback for free use of the venue and free camping facilities. I have always taken the orders in advance, but we have gone from having almost every table at the pub full to now only a couple and will probably be even less next time.
Nigel is perfectly ok with the dwindling food orders on Saturday evening as a number of us still go in for a drink on Saturday evening , and people from the meet do wander in during the day on either Saturday and/or Sunday and buy a drink, have a meal or use the burger hut, some of which we were not fully aware of as it happens whilst we are working on the cars
So at the next Midlands Nano Meet there will be no organised evening meal and I will not be asking for advance orders or posting up the menu , but hopefully we can still gather socially after the first day for a drink and chat together in the pub.
The pub will still be open for food orders until 8pm and those of you who want a meal can still have one and order at the bar but there is no obligation to do so any longer for any of us.
So feel free to do your own thing whatever that may be, the campers amongst us will need food of some sort and you can either bring your own, or we have plenty of local knowledge and know where other pubs are if you want to drive out, or there are a number of local food outlets for fish and chips etc.( and we may have a volunteer teetotaller to drive there and back )

Planning is an unnatural process, much better to just get on with things, that way failure comes as a complete surprise instead of being preceeded by a period of worry and doubt
