I like the idea of a pub that is unique to a certain region, so one in Scotland, one in Wales and spilt England into two or three. It need not be odd names, it could just be the Oban Inn and other village pubs.

I also think that priest should get a special tag for him to do, in Siberia.

Not as good as No 6,815 (almost dead centre) - You get a choice of 'pedigree' beef, Free(ish) range Turkey, Roast Mutton (old lamb) or tame boar!

GoG I am not making any suggestions as to Tag's.

I suggested a similar idea for a local version and seemed to of volunteered myself to set the locations, I get given lots of ideas then do some home work and have to explain well actually.... You know there is a gravel driveway, the Cafe is closed, that bridge is on an A road with no stopping permitted (the fleeting view might be wonderful)...

Keep up the good work....

PS Have I missed the 2017 Registration thread?
