View Full Version : Summer meet up attempt 2
June 30th, 2006, 08:34 PM
As cost is a big issue for some in the South at the moment how would people feel about a trip to London?
Maybe a little late to arrange for July now but would anyone be up for this maybe in August?
July 1st, 2006, 01:45 AM
possible for us... not definet.
July 3rd, 2006, 07:52 AM
August yes, depending on the weekend... I'm in Germany 11-14th (Rotersand, yay!) and in Bradford 25-28th (Rotersand again, yay!). So it wuld have to be a fairly sedate meeting for me (ie no clubbing) as I'll need all my energy reserves for those weekends.
But you're welcome at my place Silver...
July 3rd, 2006, 06:50 PM
Cool, thanks hon.
Ok then Saturday the 5th or 19th, which would be best? I think for me 5th would be best but both are ok.
July 4th, 2006, 08:04 AM
5th good for me... smile.gif
July 4th, 2006, 06:33 PM
Cool, shall we leave this open, see if there are anymore takers, if not a weekend for the girls!
July 5th, 2006, 01:22 AM
wah I want to go, but we've got malta then the keoghcon.
maybe I could come down for the day or something!
July 5th, 2006, 08:16 PM
Sure, I didn't mean the full weekend, I can't really afford that either!
July 7th, 2006, 12:12 AM
I'd love to meet up but I can't do the 5th as it's Brands Hatch world superbikes. I can skip one of the motogp rounds and do the 19th but thats about it unfortunately.
July 7th, 2006, 10:16 AM
I don't mind either dates... Silver?
July 7th, 2006, 03:26 PM
Sure, 19th is still good for me
July 7th, 2006, 03:31 PM
no good for me, as it's too close to move, and reading festival, which was thankfully paid for months ago smile.gif
July 7th, 2006, 03:59 PM
I'll really try to make it, but no promises there smile.gif
July 10th, 2006, 07:56 AM
Please someone make a decision... 5th or 19th!!!
I'd personally prefer the 5th as the 19th is the weekend between two very heavy weekends for me, but I will defer if 19th is prefered by most.
I think we need a poll.
July 10th, 2006, 09:02 PM
either for me. as I'm not even sure I can make it.
July 11th, 2006, 07:56 PM
OK, as I'm fine with either date, GG can make either date (though would prefer the 5th), Rixy can only make the 19th and no-one else can commit for various reasons it would seem the most logical choice would be 19th.
Is this ok?
July 12th, 2006, 08:00 AM
July 12th, 2006, 11:16 PM
Cool with me. Any choices for venue?
July 13th, 2006, 07:59 AM
How about the Marlborough Head? That's the Eerie pub near Selfridges. It's bigger than the Ben Crouch Tavern, and it's usually cool and quiet downstairs.
It's just off Oxford Street, near Bond Street station. There's a side road more or less opposite Selfridges (Gt Audley Road IIRC) and it's just down there, but still visible from Oxford Street.
July 13th, 2006, 08:15 PM
Sounds good to me.
July 14th, 2006, 07:34 PM
Cool, is it far from Kings cross?
July 17th, 2006, 08:08 AM
Two stops on the Victoria Line to Oxford Street then one stop on the Central Line to Bond Street. About a five minute walk from there.
Or come to mine earlier (or night before if you like) and we can travel in together.
July 17th, 2006, 08:12 PM
Thanks hon, I'll have to check with work to see if I can leave early on the Friday and I'll let you know.
Sounds straight forward though, if not I should be able to find my way - I think!
July 18th, 2006, 07:47 AM
I could always meet you at Kings Cross or Oxford Street if needs be...
August 2nd, 2006, 08:02 AM
Everything still go for this?
Warning: We may have a Llamedos in attendance, if he can get the day off work!
August 2nd, 2006, 10:52 AM
Yep, I'm still on.
August 3rd, 2006, 07:58 AM
Rar! What time would be best to meet? 12-1 ish? Whatever is fine by me, but I don't have far to travel!
August 3rd, 2006, 06:57 PM
I'm easy. 12 is fine. I need to pick some drumsticks up while I'm in town anyway.
August 3rd, 2006, 11:09 PM
Well unless I get dropped a big wad of cash, the london trip isn't looking good for me. but I may... MAY... come down for the day, probably me on my own. If I'm feeling restless I will, as I have others I haven't seen in ages who live in london.
August 4th, 2006, 07:56 AM
Rixy, you should try eBay for drumsticks... I just got a new pair fairly cheap (seller called lickmusic) and they're pink and black! So cool! Longer and heavier than what I've been practising with, but I'll get used to them soon enough.
Sophie, would be good to see you... it's only a day thing anyway as I won't have the energy for anything more than that! smile.gif
August 4th, 2006, 09:35 PM
I'll give that a try but i tend to buy in bulk so I get a fairly good discount. I don't think pink and blacks my thing :) Maybe black on black!
Sophie come on down for the day, it'll be a laugh

Is everyone still on for this Saturday?
August 16th, 2006, 09:00 PM
I can't make this one :( I just gave my solicitor about 10 grand... bad on one side, but good on the whole owning a house thing ;)
Sorry guys, I will try to be about for the signing in london smile.gif
August 16th, 2006, 11:13 PM
Meep sowy guys. just can't make it at all. my overdrafft is laughing at me, and I'm crying at it. I hope I have enough for enjoying con :(
August 17th, 2006, 08:01 AM
Haven't heard anything from Silver?
To be honest, I love y'all to bits, but I could really do with a day in bed rather than the pub on Saturday! My weekend in Germany broke me!
How about we reconvene on Sept 23rd for the FP signing?
August 17th, 2006, 12:23 PM
No worries. I'll take myself off to Brno for the races.
See ya later and hope you recover Debs.
August 21st, 2006, 05:02 AM
Hope you enjoyed Brno... I enjoyed seeing Haydn being trounced into 9th (I really don't want him to take the championship!)... go Dani!
August 21st, 2006, 08:32 PM
Brno was cool. I can't believe you want Dani to win! He's got no charisma at all. Rossi to win! Anyway Loris is going to take the next couple of races probably.
I did get very very drunk on the local beer but luckily for you all I couldn't find my laptop to post anything.
August 22nd, 2006, 06:58 PM
Was off line for a little bit and right up until the last minute I was up for this, but as it turns out seems like it wasn't just me! It does mean however that I should deffinately be there for the fp signing!
