Fancy a forum meet? I'm thinking we could meet up at the Hog's Head and maybe drink a toast to the rising bollards. Any takers? Feel free to PM me if you prefer.

Simon, This has been tried before..........wasn't successful. sad.gif

You mean you all had a horrible time, or you couldn't agree to give it a try?

I'd probably go - there would be no need to disclose your forum name if you arrived and didn't want to, you could still go be sociable and remain anonymous.

Yes I gathered that but the way some were talking I thought it had already been arranged, you know, time, place?

Still to be decided.

How about Monday 17 September, 7.30 pm at the Hoggs Head? (cask ales £1.95 on a Monday).

How about everyone puts £5 into the pot and anything left after two rounds we give to Help for Heros or something? Would that work?

I'm suggesting the Hoggs Head so that we really can pop out and ceremonially toast the bollards.

Might be nice to get some "The Great Newt of Orme" comemmorative t-shirts too. Anyone good with artwork?

Sounds good to me Simon. *wink*. smile.gif
I hope they sell something Non-alcoholic. As I do not drink that type of beverage!

Problem I worry about is, how many people on here would actually show up.... I have a feeling most of those who shout the loudest on here, in real life would be quite the wilting flower. Not talking about being violent or anything, I just mean, they are quite outspoken on the forum... Doubt they would say it in RL.

Simon, how about updating the top of the thread with the location, time and date, and a list of attending members. smile.gif
