Hi its Soozy here, It would appear that I have been tasked with finding a suitable Curry House for Saturday 19th's revelry. Before I can make a booking I need to know how many of you lovely people would like to attend.

So as not to be disappointed, can I please ask you to put your hands up those of you who would like to join GCW and myself for a night of good food and company.

I need to know by Sunday 30th August to enable the booking to be made, so please don't dilly dally if you want to be included! :o)

Choice of Venue is....4550 Miles from Delhi, Maid Marion Way, Mount Street, Nottingham, NG1 6HE

Suggest booking is made for 8.30pm

Soozy x

If people put their hands up will you be able to see that? Have you got us all on webcams?

Weber how wonderful that would be if I could do that...How silly of me to think I could see hands up in the air for those wishing to dine!

Reply by posting a meesage here would be most acceptable thank you

That's good. It's just I had an itch on the top of my head and I thought if I scratched it you might put my name down for the curry and I'm not even at the fcon...

gcw - is Soozy your alter-ego? I mean, does she really exist, or is she just another side to your personalily?

No FCon curry for me, I'm afraid. I can't guarantee I'll be at FCon, and curry makes me very ill!

Me an' Debs please, Soozy! The web site for "4550 miles..." seemed a bit rubbish - I started to wonder whether they were still going or not. Chutney looks as if it would be a good second choice from the reviews.

(Caroline, Soozy does indeed exist, and is a lovely lass too)...

Oh Mick you are very kind, I did also look at Chutney's, I thought we went to 4550 last time, although im not 100% certain. If you'd rather do Chutneys we will make that the Curry House of the night. Dont want too many alternatives as this only confuses the issue.

Soozy - we did indeed visit 4550 last time, and I thought the meal and company very good - we'd happily go back there again, it was just that when we looked at the website for 4550 miles at the weekend it look like a bomb site, and I wondered if the restaurant was still open...

I think we will go with Chutneys as it gets good reviews and not far from the Hotel.

I will call with numbers on Sunday to make booking.

Chutneys? That's its name? What's its English counterpart - Pickles?

Hey you guys, I've just seen on the BFS forum that there's a mass book launch set for the Saturday night. If that's the one several of you are involved in, is it going to clash with the curry?

If you're at the Con you should still come out, Caroline - there're always other bits and bobs on the menu that aren't currified.

The mass launch seems to be late sat night, Caroline (when everyone's pissed!) - anyway, the banquet is on Saturday night, at 7pm, so I doubt they'd schedule anything to conflict with that!

Right, in that case I think we really should book the curry for 7pm as well. Otherwise we'll all miss the awards ceremony that follows it. Or is that part of the plan?

I've just been in touch with Chutneys and apparently they're going to do a special hot curry for all us horror fans. It's called the Hellraiser and I'm assured that it'll "tear your arsehole apart".

I've emailed them both today - I think Ally's going to the banquet, but I'm not 100% sure - she's away at the moment though. I don't have Stuart Young's email address (thought I did but can't find it) but then he pops in here a lot anyway so hopefully he'll see the thread.

Couple of my friends said they want to come -- I did try to warn them what you lot are like but they just wouldn't listen. Anyway, can I book three places please?

Why don't we all just chip in a few grand and open our own fucking curryhouse?

Right folks, Its Soozy here, I have booked Chutneys for 6.30pm Saturday 19th September.

There will be a grand total of 16 guests,(You know who you are!) I suggest we meet in the Foyer of the "lovely" Brittania Hotel at 6.15pm as it is only a 10 minute walk to the restaurant.

Eating at 6.30pm will give us enough time to deavour our meal and get back to see the awards ceremony and enjoy the raffle and a few drinkies (im sure there will be a raffle)

Look forward to seeing you all....dont be LATE otherwise we will go without you!

Soozy x

I think I saw on the BFS site there isn't going to be a raffle this year. Pity, as I've never sampled the delights of this legendary raffle!

Yes, there was a comment on Facebook about possibly not being a raffle. They do have a late night show thingy though, with John Lenehan - maybe that's why?

No raffle, no Fantasycon. The sky will fall on our heads. The Fimbulwinter will descend. The meddlers will realise the error of their ways.

I jest. It's a good decision. My addiction to the raffle needs to go the way of some other Lane addictions I won't mention on a family message board.

"The Fimbulwinter will descend."

Nah - we had that our way in April, and where was Ragnarok?

It's a major part of the con and it's popular, so I'm sure they have their reasons.
