Right, I couldn't find anywhere that suggested there needed to be a minimum cool off period between a meet and planning the next meet. So how's about we get the ball rolling on another.

Might I suggest an early september meet so we can meet before people scatter to Uni and the like? It will be harder after that. I have no ideas for location suggetions to be honest.

Plan! Discuss! Obey!

Can I suggest Derby, since the last meet here was rather small?

Cand and I have plenty of space to put people up and we have many fun activities, possibly including MINIGOLF!!

Yeah, only 5 people came to it, including us! Come on, you all know you want to. tongue.gif There are cheap train fares (if you book in advance), and uh...it'd make us happy? biggrin.gif

Also, we know a lot more about the area now than we did then. And haven't you always wanted to see a garlic nan the size of a Ryn?

Hmm, what we need is a US meet. I'm leaving the NYC area next June, and it is the Biggest and Finest City in All the Land, so Americans! Let's rally and meet before then.

(why have we got such a f*cking huge country it is not even like we need all that room for anything ahh.)

If we can organise one in Derby and I'm free then I can totally come. Derby's pretty near to me so it should be easy enough.

That might well be what winds up happening--I dunno if there's anyone else in the area who'd be willing to come! Stupid huge country.

And, as a bonus, there is a very easy to find pub with plenty of seating (not the one we went to at the last Derby meet) directly across from the train station where we can meet up. That way we can sit and have drinks while waiting for everyone to arrive.

It beats standing around in a station, anyway, especially with as late as many of us tend to run. tongue.gif

I will do my best to be at ANY meet, but realistically, I'm going to have cash flow issues until around January. I might be able to come to a meet in October or afterwards, but definitely not before sad.gif

Was the reason that only 5 people went to the Derby meet because it quite far out of the way?

There was a US-Meet, it was a few years ago, I was there, much fun was had...we went to Sacramento.

September's not that good for me, my sister's expecting her sprog half way through the month, I'm going to Germany at the start and I'm sorta between jobs at the moment, which, thinking about it, is the worst time to do it, but I'm hating the job more than wanting tons o' cash.

I completely second that --- the meet and the fact that our country is too big. =) If I'm not in London by then I would definitely be up for a New York Mata meet. I live in upstate New York, so if there's anyone from the Eastern Canada area that doesn't live too far from NY, they are more than welcome to car pool with me =). I know I'm less than 3 hours from St. Catherine's....

Nope. A bunch of people had to cancel at the last minute for other reasons. It's not any more out of the way than Nottingham, which had two meets with a bunch of people.

Ah, yes, thank you Daria. biggrin.gif @_@ Deeerrrbyyyy @_@

Actually, I'd be fairly happy as long as it's not in London again. tongue.gif Derby is just kind of an obvious suggestion, since we have plenty of free floor space and it's cheap to get here (usually about 5.95 from London if you book online in advance with a railcard...7 if you don't have a railcard). Nottingham or Birmingham would also be good, but the last trains from there to here on a Saturday are all around 10PM (unless we want to spend 2+ hours on a bus), so floorspace would be a bit trickier.
