I'm sure there was an earlier one with Mike, Dunc, Benner and Dave K.  That might have been documented through the old SOSAK website though. :think:  Like I say; I wasn't there but lets say that 2008 sounds right to me.

This article is from the August 2008 SOSAKOnline:

Which means it was probably in July of 2008.

MTO UK meet is officially on my bucket list.

Getting to the motherland of MTO, Halifax is another.

While getting to the Motherland of Victorinox is yet another.

Is this going to be the tenth year Anniversary of the UK Lard and Tool Fest?   :ahhh :D

Did you have a meet the year this Forum started?

Good question. :think:  I know there was at least one before I came along, but I don't know exactly.
Yep there was one in 2008. Amazing to think how long ago that was now! :o

Give in, buy several Farmer's!!!!!!

It would be excellent to get some members from countries outside the UK. As for me, I lost my job this week, so my participation will depend on how quick I can get myself back into reasonably gainful employment. I have a few "irons in the fire", but no definitive offers as yet. I do hope to be able to get there though, so pencil me in for a place round the fire  :tu:

Damn mate, that's a shame.  I knew it was on the cards but it's still a bugger it's actually happened. :-\  Here's hoping one of those irons pan out. :salute:

OK, given that's me standing on the left of the shot I honestly can't remember 4 foot tall columns of flames at any of the meet-ups. :think:
