I agree with Debs - I think it was almost an even split between north and south...

And in fact that was why it was so difficult finding a venue that suited everyone.

Roll on the next meet!

Thanks to Porto for providing the minutes... I know it was a tough job, Porto, but someone had to do it

ok I need to get this straight before I get any more confused.
Down Souff is where and extends to where?
Up Norff it's from where to where?
Odd thing this but I thought the midlands were the Midlands because the were in the mid
So if in the UK Manchester is up norff where is Glasgow?
I thought that the venue that was picked was picked because it was mid-way between everybody >D equidistant, 4 hours drive from London & Edinburgh.
I'm off to bed all this maths and geography is mixing me up:\
Take care.

According to my reckoning Robjay, Glasgow is more norffer than Manchester, and isn't sarf anywhere sarf of the Watford Gap ?

Well I'm a Londoner born and bred so anywhere north of London is NORTH! But however you set the borders, it means nothing if we dont all know the venue!!! - Not meant in a nasty way but if we each have a "buddy" to contact if they havent managed to get onto the chat room for some time (guilty as charged!), then Im sure more of us could get together! As long as partners could come too, coz I'm shy!

Hi Belladonna,

This was the first meet of it's kind (I think) in the UK (although Debs and I try and get together for a coffee as we live quite near each other).

The reason behind the weekend was for people who regularly chat in the room to meet and get to know each other better.

It would be great to have more meets and they don't necessarily have to be for the weekend. It could just be a meal in a restaurant or drink in a pub if members live near enough.

Also, partners are more than welcome and I have to admit it was great to see their bemused looks as we all launched into forum gossip! But I'm sure our partners understood where we were coming from and they were having just as much fun chatting as the regular members. It was great for them to make new friends as well.

Jane

Totally see where you are all coming from - except Chels coz shes got a strange accent! (Joke!!!). Trouble is not knowing who lives near who (or whom?) THose of us who e-board each other and are therefore quite trusting (!) could obviously be a bit more open if required. Understand the long standing forum members have an advantage over relative "newbies" but hey, we all gotta start somewhere! P.S. Sarah, check your mail!!!! :eek
