Anyone Up For A Meet?
« on: August 28, 2010, 18:46:10 PM »
Hi all,

I live in Colchester and am not sure if this qualifies as the east of England or south east as it seems to depend on who you speak to.

However, I was wondering if anyone would be interested in meeting up one evening or maybe one Sunday at a venue yet to be decided on.

Any thoughts?

Mark

Even though there where 34 views that's not 34 members!, because after Diboor replied to the thread it then appears in 'unread replies! so when I look to see what he put!, and again when I looked at your last post its upping the 'read counter!

plus members/mods will read ALL the threads and posts out of intrest! and with a title like 'meet?' know one knows where it is till they read it! ;)

If and when this happens we'll have to meet on way down! and possibly pick up a certain SE2 member from Ipswich on the way! If she see's this thread that is!!

A Sunday would be better than an evening for me by the way !

Firstly, apologies for any confusion caused by the title, secondly, I am still learning how this works so thanks for letting me know how the viewing aspect works.

Looking at the location of those intersted in meeting up, would somewhere on the a12 or a14 be a good location to congregate?

I am not sure of any decent pubs / cafe's etc above Ipswich that would be suitable but am open to suggestions. 
In respect of the day, I admit, Sundays is possibly the best day for myself, is that ok?  If so, I can post a few dates and see which appears to be the most popular.

I'd possibly give a week or so longer be for making dates! there are some members that only come on once in a while! and there location may change things abit! and it will give them time to see the thread and plan for it! making it more of a crowd!

but I think a sunday is good! at some point!

anyone else think of a place! drink or food wise!

Just remember, Law of averages say that only half who put there name up will actually confirm they are coming, then half again will actually turn up. Well that's how it has gone before. :)

Don't know about the sunny beach bit but Clacton has a bit of sand!  and other things to!

Orwell truck stop is easy to get to.

Any other locations?
