UK Meet-up 2016
« on: March 02, 2016, 10:37:08 PM »
Calling all Brits,and European members!

It's time to see if we want to have a UK Meet-up this year,and where do we want to meet?

Sparky415 can get us our usual campsite near Bicester,but do we have any other options?

Add your name if your interested,and let's get the ball rolling!


Also,if possible,let's try get the basics,ie dates and locations,in place by the end of this month :pok:

No matter how I try,I find my way to the same old jams.

There is no beginning,or ending,and for this we are thankful,cos now is hard enough to understand!

We'd love to see our friends from Ireland and the Low Countries too if you can make it over :pok:

I'm not counting Newbies in any of these counts, for obvious reasons, and am counting a few who aren't on the map, but i happen to know where they live  :whistle:


Based on the Member Map, about 3 or 4 active members spread throughout Florida (which takes about a day to drive from the end of the Panhandle to the tip of the peninsula).

I think there's about 10 currently spread throughout Texas (where I live) unfortunately again very spread out.

Based on the map, and on members that have been active recently, a US Meetup would probably happen in either the 4 state region around Chicago (greatest density of active members, ~12 within a few hundred miles), someplace in California (~4 members within ~100 miles), or one of five major metro areas in Texas (Houston, Dallas, San Antonio, Austin and SAK Guy's cave of Wonder).

Doesn't Cupboard live on a farm?  They must have a field or two we could use.  Plus it just might stop him getting lost on the way. :whistle:

Nah, he'll still be 6 hours late  :D

As usual, I'm certainly interested. All depends on when, and what my circumstances are at the time. Worst case scenario, I'll photocopy my head and you can stick it to an empty chair. Mark won't notice the difference, and will still be talking to "me" till sunrise  :D

Good question. :think:  I know there was at least one before I came along, but I don't know exactly.

I think for the answer to that we'd need to ask the Lord of Spamalot.  He's been around since the beginning and I think might be the one who would most likely know.
