View Full Version : Anyone Interested In A London Meet Up?

Is anyone interested in a London meet up?

I was thinking Aug/Sept time.

It would have to be at a place somewhere fairly close to Euston station as use a mobility scooter and can't trave on buses or the underground with it. I'll research accessable places when I see if enough people are interested.

Are german members invited, too?;)

I would love to visit London once again - after 24 years (OMG, I feel soooo old:))

You'd certainly be welcome Evelyn.

06-10-2011, 11:00 AM
OMG! You know I'd love to come! If I hit the Lottery between now and then, I'm in! LOL!

06-10-2011, 01:37 PM
I could try to come too if I don't have to work.

06-10-2011, 01:58 PM
Paulette if I win it first i'll send you the air tickets.

Well so fae Sanna it's only overseas that are interested LOL

06-10-2011, 02:04 PM
Or come and see some of us visiting in Scotland between Aug 3-10!!

06-10-2011, 02:16 PM
I didn't see that was going on. It's not possible for me to travel too far so it's out for me.

06-10-2011, 02:24 PM
Is it a problem if also overseas are coming :unsure:?

06-10-2011, 02:32 PM
No problem at all Sanna, always nice to meet overseas visitors. I just thought more people from the London and South East would be interested LOL

06-11-2011, 01:38 PM
I am interested! London is only a 45 min. flight away. And I LOVE London!

06-11-2011, 01:43 PM
You can get there quicker than I can Kitty LOL

06-11-2011, 03:04 PM
My flight would be about 3 hours but it's not long either. I really hope that I would have a free weekend then.

06-11-2011, 05:31 PM
I'll give it another week and then post a poll for dates.

06-14-2011, 06:00 PM
Yahooooo for sure, count me In In In! Sanna it would be so awesome to meet you. Let's have a mini UK atc conference, I can definitely have one person to stay with me, and possible try to sort out a mattress for another person too. We should pm katelnorth and 3katz, and I will think of a few others here in the Uk too... what a brilliant idea ADS!

Added you o the list Joss

06-15-2011, 02:37 AM
I have some weekends already taken then but I hope you'll choose one of my free weekends :).

06-15-2011, 02:46 AM
Tell us your taken weekends and we'll try to work around them.

Joss is going to help me with the planning.

06-15-2011, 02:51 AM
My friends have wedding on August 13th and I have a working event starting on September 23rd and lasting about 10 days. I don't have my calendar here now and can't check if there was something else too. But there are also some free weekends.

06-15-2011, 02:56 AM
OK, I remembered that also the weekend on September 9th - 11th is taken. Don't care about me. Maybe too busy time of the year then.

06-15-2011, 03:24 AM
Thanks Sanna.

I'm busy beg Aug hosting the US AFA invasion, but even so London's too far for me for an afternoon meet up. I also use a mobility scooter.

There used to be a really good pub called Square Tavern in Tolmers Square near to Euston Station.

06-17-2011, 09:39 AM
It's a long way to travel for an afternoon meet up. I could still be interested though. I don't know anything about a Scotland meet up. Is that a closed group?

06-17-2011, 09:50 AM
Four ladies are coming over to tour Scotland. I didn't think of having a meet up but if enough people are interested we can do so. Thing is it would have to be the 9th August as all the other days are accounted for and that's in the week, not the weekend.

06-17-2011, 11:30 AM
Ahhh, I hope you have a wonderful time. Aug 9th is too near hubby's big birthday so I daren't arrange anything. :)

06-17-2011, 12:22 PM
Me & Joss can arrange a weekend amongst us as we can both put people up. We can do some workshops at my house.

06-17-2011, 12:54 PM
Workshops? Sounds great!

06-17-2011, 07:04 PM
I would definitely be interested, but it will depend on dates - we have a week in Cornwall booked, a few days in Wales with a friend and my mother is coming to visit (which isn't a problem, it's just something that's happening...) Plus I do have three kids! I can manage London in a day though, living just outside it (the Surrey side of Wimbledon) so hopefully I will be able to take part. Sounds fun!

06-17-2011, 09:47 PM
I'm interested too, but like Kate, depends on dates! The sooner a date is set, the better as my weekends are filling up like nobody's business!

06-17-2011, 10:36 PM
Or come and see some of us visiting in Scotland between Aug 3-10!!

Open up a thread. You may get some interest.

06-18-2011, 06:13 AM
Thanks for the heads-up Joss!

I am interested, thought suspect I wouldn't actually be able to make it, it is a long way to go for a day (and it seems this year is a year for old friends coming over to visit) but I just might be able to make it... so I'll try to keep in the loop anyway.

It is a great idea though!

Have you looked to see if one of those craft cafes are near the station? Would be a fitting place to meet, that's for sure.

06-18-2011, 08:45 AM
Thanks for the invite Joss but this is not practical for me for a day - hope you all have fun though

06-18-2011, 09:14 AM
I am free all of August, so why don't you gals start suggesting some dates, and we can play around with them. I don't mind being the 'secretary' who pms everyone and tries to co-ordinate the dates. I agree with Jo, the sooner we get a date the better.

06-19-2011, 04:10 AM
Hi all, I'd love to meet up in London, coming from N Ireland so its a short plane journey. would be great to see 'real' faces and get to know people.

06-19-2011, 04:42 PM
Thanks for the message Joss :D

I would love to come but there is a chance I may not be able to make it. As soon as you decide on a date I will let you know for definite. I am going on hols with hubby shortly and then I go away again for a week with the girls so I have very few holiday days left to book to take time off work but if I can make it I will.

06-20-2011, 02:39 AM
I have started a thread with a poll. If anyone who is interested can you vote on that please?

06-21-2011, 07:50 AM
I would be interested depending on when it is.

06-21-2011, 08:19 AM
I'll add you to the list Gerry.
