    It is possible, and a damn good idea.

    If someone could give me the list of group names that would be the perfect solution.

    and as if by magic . . .

    http://www.subbrit.org.uk/rsg/roc/group_hq.html



    Edit: actually, the group names people use are slightly different to the group HQ names , e.g Group number 1 - Maidstone is actually generally refered to as the Kent group. Not sure how you'd want to list them.

    Errr... :)

    By county name rather than Group HQ name would probably be more useful.

    Hmm interesting one this.. for example Erdington and Frankley are part of Coventry group, but in the county of Warwickshire.

    Personally I like to refer to them by group, rather than county. But I'm happy to go which ever way you decide!

    I didnt actually mean county specifically

    most people seem to use "Somerset Group" instead of "Group No. 12 - Bristol"

    You would probably want two drop-downs, one for country to narrow it down then one for group, but that's getting complicated! (In an ideal world you would then have all the posts listed, but probably getting a bit OTT!). If any of the ROC aficionados have the programming ability then it would make for an awesome database though.

    OK, this is getting confusing.

    As I understand it there were 29 (not 31 as I said, there's 2 gaps!) ROC groups each with a group HQ that the posts would be attributed to. Unfortunitely these did not correlate to counties, except where they could do so easily, e.g Kent, Essex and the like are pretty much grouped by county)

    A good example would be Group 12 (Bristol) which would most likey cover North Somerset, south Gloucestershire and west whitshire With Group 9 (Yeovil) covering South somerset and Dorset, and group 14 (winchester) taking in Hampshire and south/east whiltshire. It makes it hard without an official map to know where the boundaries were for the different groups.

    So how you group them depends if you want to go by the 29 groups as they were devided up when the ROC was setup, or by county (which is the list mattc has posted)
