So, then. As mentioned in another thread, it's been suggested that maybe we could hold a forum get-together. OK, so we don't have a gig to go as we would have in the past to but a lot of people have become friends in real life thanks to this here forum, but don't get to see each other very much. How about a meet-up?

To make it as easy as possible for more people to attend I'm wondering whether the Midlands (Birmingham/Nottingham/Sheffield, etc) would be a good area? Thoughts and suggestions would be most welcome. As for dates, maybe a Saturday in mid-late April 2016? Easter will be over and done with by then. Format - just an informal get together in a pub somewhere, maybe incorporating a fairly cheap meal?

Over to you. What do you think? Is this viable? Is anyone interested?

Central sounds good and the Mossive would definitely be up for it! Hopefully we can get a reasonable number of forum bods interested.

Maybe the next step would be to narrow down a date. After Easter makes sense so it's just a case of deciding.

Very Happy

OK, so are we looking at Nottingham/Birmingham way? I just want this to be as accessible as possible for as many people as possible.

As for pinning down a date, wow - I think that sorting a date so far away would invariably mean that it would have to be very fluid and subject to change. Saying that, I've got Saturday 16 April 2016 in mind. How does that sound?

I've created a Facebook event so hopefully that will help keep track of numbers. It's public so even if you're not on Facebook you should hopefully be able to see it. I'll also make sure this thread is updated. Birmingham currently seems to be the UK location of choice.

Excellent! Not sure about the curry after our last experience in Bilston, Bat! Wink Saying that, you have some good local knowledge - if you can recommend somewhere we could always give it a go! It will be brilliant to catch up again Very Happy
