Should the CCC become a branch of the Explorers?

Post by Hardcore Stig » Fri Oct 12, 2012 2:50 pm

Well should we?

Maybe we don;t go out weekly together but we seem to be touring the UK, and that does mean we need to do Wales and then Gibraltor to get the full set.

We drink as an adventure, surely we qualify.

What do you drunkards think?

Definitely. We should get vinyl jackets with a slogan on too

I vouch yes.

I am still pondering about that. Let's talk about it when we're real drunk in Belfast.
Also, where's Glasgae Sam?

I ran into him about two months ago. Not seen him on the board lately.

I like the idea of jackets, though there is no rush. As Stig quite rightly points out, the fez comes first.

Also, to answer the question: yes!

Yes. You guys kept that tradition alive while many (myself included), were dormant.

You guys more than qualify.

Just cross the pond my friend: my new flat in Rennes is remarkably uninteresting ( a year here already and I still haven't unpacked all the boxes, which clearly shows how much of a "home" this is to me) but there is still a guest room and a couch in the living room.
And if ever you fancy coming to Bordeaux when I'm on holiday at my parents', there'll be more than enough space, old stones and wine.

I might take you up on that, France is my mistress. She captured me years ago, and I can't thank her enough.

That's OK Matt, one of my friends is a pilot for Easyjet and he got me a discount that I am almost ashamed of for Belfast. I have no doubt he could do the same for Shannon.

I checked the criteria we need;
Your MDEC chapter should have two names. The formal name should be geographical in nature, such as the Denver MDEC or the Lower Sparrow Valley MDEC. Avoid large geographic titles (Oklahoma MDEC, say) so as to avoid future schisms and splinter chapters. The chapter’s informal name, the nickname, as it were, you’ll have to put some thought into. It may have to evolve, over time, in accordance with the behavior of the chapter.
So a name, with European MDEC unfortunately being too unspecific, although they may make an exception for us if we ask nicely, and a nickname (which simply has to be the CCC!)

As for a clubhouse, well I think we'll need more than one given our seperation!

The CCC should have several secret hides, including one in Venice and one in Krakow. The ones in London, Belfast Paris and Munich are of course a given.
