    Re: DAVIS CUP 1st Round 2018

    Ouch indeed! Rough draw for the team. As away ties go in terms of travel it's not too bad BUT this time around I have to work the Thursday and Gill and I both have to work Monday so it will depend on whether we can fly to wherever it is late Thursday or first thing Friday morning from Brum. And home again Sunday evening. It's going to be touch and go so definitely can't commit until we know where it is and can can work our travel.

    If we can't go, I might suggest a UK meet up to watch the tie if anyone would be interested in doing that.

    But the obvious choices are much easier for those who are tight for time. I will need to fly out late Friday or early Saturday & come back late Sunday or early Monday morning.

    I would hope to be able to go but it does depend where it is and if flights are easy to Scotland as I would need to come back Sunday night or Monday morning. Failing that though, a meet up at home would be great!

    Roughly how I feel. Not sure the effort involved would be worth it. Without AM there is almost certainly only going to be one outcome.

    I'm hoping not the islands as that would be expensive. But wherever it is we will make it work. It will be a long wait before we know. The obvious places like Madrid and Barca are munch easier for everyone to get to I guess. Wherever the most fans can get to, though maybe Spain will consider that and move it further.

    I'm tempted, BUT it depends on where it is, as I'd need to do a Ghent style flying visit, out Saturday, back Sunday - not sure I can get the Friday and Monday off work, can have a look tomorrow.

    At least it's Europe and not USA or Australia!

    Aww RB, it would still be DC and team GB and us lot

    My participation however is in serious doubt as I've already said though. I had a quick look at flights last night, obvious ones. Barcelona looks the best for me and is definitely doable. Cannot believe there seems to be nothing from Brum to Madrid! I must have missed something surely! other than that I've not looked at anything else, no point until we know I suppose.

    If it's not doable I would deffo be on for a UK meet up to watch. We'll just gag you when you keep complaining about the clay RB

    Being the perennial pessimist, isn't Catalonia potentially kicking of at the moment, which might exclude Barcelona (sorry RB:-)
