IDEAS FOR REUNION ACTIVITES AND NON-REUNION ACTIVITES by peripatetically on 27 November 2007 1:59am
 
SInce Mike brought it up, I decided to start a thread where we can suggest activites for the reunion. I was going to say "serious", "sensible" or "reasonable" ideas, but I know with all of you, none of that applies! HAHAHAHAHA ; )

Anyway, please add to the list below if you have something worth adding.

****************************************
I. Visit the castle (Cori's idea)

2. Have a revue of MPFC skits for those brave souls who wish to exhibit their talents in song and dance.

3. Each person bring 25 photos, or whatever number we vote upon,of their favorite travel shots to discuss experiences and/or photo tips. This should probably be limited so all can participate.

4. Hold a trivia quiz about Michael and/or his travels.

5. Have a creme egg hunt! HAHAHAHA

Mike, surely you have some ideas!!!

Maybe you should start a list for OTHER things to do unconnected to Palinstravels that would be fun as a group.

Well, I'll begin:

1. Eat

Charter a boat, plane, or bus for afternoon tours. Eat drink and be merry while seeing the sights at no physical cost to our tired bodies.

Scotland, there would be all sorts of things to do. I want to see Edinburgh castle (a mystery writer I have read named Quentin Jardine's books take place in Edinburgh). Glasgow of course, The Highlands and Islands. Loch Lomond Buchanan territory).

Of course I would sign my book.

I think we should rent a couple of Jaguar sports cars and take turns speeding around the countryside wearing Pantomime Horse costumes. Michael said that was one of his favorite roles.

Definitely re-enacting scenes from MPHG.

Dare each other to eat haggis.

Taking turns making up new lines for the French Taunter character.

A visit to the cave of Caer-bannog (sp?)

Get a little drunk and have a "Talk Like a Scot" contest.

Visit Loch Ness and see if we can sight Nessie.

Can we have a mock battle @ the castle @ the end and have the local cops break it up?

There you go! I knew there would be some ideas out there.

Renting a vehicle for a group tour would be so much fun. To where, is the big question. There are endless possibilities.

The highlands is a must.

Personally, I would vote not to visit TOO many usual touristy sites. For example, Loch Ness is just a big lake with nothing happening in the middle of nowhere(unless we took a cruise on it). The museum there is a total rip-off, so all one would do is stand and stare. There's a castle there but if you've been down to it (from the roadway), then you have not a thing to do.The castle was closed to visitors except for a small gift shop at ground level. The area is lovely, but so are most of Scotland's sites.

If in Edinburgh, those who wish to see the castle should certainly do so, but if you've seen it once, that's probably really enough. For those individuals, there are lots of other options too numerous to mention. But if we make that area our base, then we can elaborate later.

Things such as the usual tourist activites (Edinb. Castle) should be left for the individual to explore on their own since perhaps some have done them already. Not sure how many of you that includes. There will most likely be time alloted to do things freelance, without the group. Let's just try to do things in which most of us are willing to participate when we plan things together, because traveling so far to repeat CERTAIN things is costly. However, I'd love to repeat some things, so don't get me wrong. This is a group, so compromise will be necessary at times.

Are there any other thoughts, folks?

The only place I have been to in Scotland is Gretna Green and surrounds (no, I didn't run away to get married!!). I would love to see the Highlands and Edinburgh.
