So folks, once again dear Haraki san is coming over to Europe, with Tom and Kenta, for Selvedge Run and other activities, so naturally we have persuaded him to spend a couple of days at IHUKHQ in Gosport, which means… it’s time for an Iron Heart get-together!

IF YOU CAN JOIN US, PLEASE CLICK HERE TO FILL IN THE FORM!

Very rough plans are:

Friday 6th July – evening meet up for food (fish’n’chips is traditionally eaten on a Friday) and drinks – timings and venue to be confirmed.

Saturday 7th July – gathering at IHUKHQ in Cooperage Green, Gosport, kicking off probably around 3pm, with yakitori barbecue and plenty of liquid refreshment.

I’m not holding any hotel rooms, we are not blessed with much choice of accommodation in or near Gosport, so if you’re able to come and stay a night or two we suggest you book as soon as possible.  Some suggestions are:

Premier Inn Gosport https://www.premierinn.com/gb/en/hotels/england/hampshire/gosport/gosport.html
Old Lodge Hotel https://www.facebook.com/Oldlodgehotel/
Anglesey Hotel http://www.angleseyhotel.co.uk

There are quite a few rooms available via Airbnb and some hotels close to the ferry just across the harbour in Portsmouth (ferry runs till midnight).

There are lots of things to do and see in the local area, including:

Portsmouth Historic Dockyard http://www.historicdockyard.co.uk/
Isle of Wight https://www.visitisleofwight.co.uk/, especially Queen Victoria’s holiday home Osborne House http://www.english-heritage.org.uk/visit/places/osborne/

We’ll add more suggestions, and I’m sure some of our regular visitors can recommend (or otherwise) places to visit and/or stay!

When is the latest date you’d need numbers?? Really tempted, but I’d need to gouge the time off out of my winter holidays. I can’t do that until next week.

@hajduk that's amazing news - we finally get to meet!  And @den1mhead fantastic that you and Jules will join us this year, too!  @Morose_Penguin there is absolutely no urgency, ideally I'd like to firm up numbers towards the end of June so plenty of time for you to work out if you can sort the holidays (fingers and toes crossed)!

 ;D Excited!  :-*

For anyone struggling to find accommodation, there are quite a few listings on Airbnb:

https://www.airbnb.co.uk/s/Gosport-PO12/all?refinement_paths%5B%5D=%2Ffor_you&place_id=ChIJ_-Sv5lJmdEgRJovXrzvvBA4&checkin=2018-07-06&checkout=2018-07-08&adults=2&guests=1&query=Gosport%20PO12

The first listing (double room historic naval building) is within spitting distance, the second listing (private garden studio in calm oasis) is owned by friends and just a 10 min walk away. If you find somewhere and want to check location etc. with me before you book, please do!
