Just to remind those plannin to stay over at South Shields in July you should be makin yer accomo bookins (if yer haven't already). As it's the weekend of the Sunderland Airshow (5 miles away), it's likely accomodation may get harder to arrange as we get nearer to July. Touristy info is on 0191 454 6612 (10am -1pm and 2pm till 5.30) for accomo guides. I've still got last year's on me hard drive if anyone would like me to e mail them details. For them that haven't a clue what I'm on about the beach Party is the third Northern Meet (27 & 28 July) and all are welcome. Nowt fancy, this is just a 'come as yer please' family picnin held on South Shields beach. We make it a weekend event to add value for those that are travellin some way and to make meetin yer feller DISers easier over the two days. If yer can only come for one afternoon, come anyway - we've got beer! General info and directions can be found on our website www.uknorthernmeet.co.uk. There's even piccies and our video. (If nowt else, have a look at DFM's Cruise video, it's fabulous - but we weren't there!) Hope to see lots of yer at Shields.
