    Another Tremendous Thursday with lots of lovely people attending and great music from an excellent band. Thanks as always to Sarah for organizing and to Jane for the great hosting. Last but not least, thanks to Andy for his brilliant hosting as always and a fitting way for him to sign off from Flying Solo, and enjoy a wonderful, long and loving relationship with Maura. Good Luck to you both, gone but not forgotten and I am sure we will see you as special guests many times over the coming months and years :)

    For anyone reading this who could not make it tonight, watch out for the next Thursday Might at Abbey Bar, its a night not to be missed if you like live music, great people and plenty of dancing :)

    Hi all,

    Wow! What a night. And thank you all for making my final Flying Solo event one to remember. I've had a fantastic five months or so flying solo, and the privilege of meeting so many lovely people and making so many new friends along the way. And a special thanks to Sarah for all her hard work in organising these meet-ups and allowing me to be a part of such a great group. I’ll be sure to pop along to the odd event to say my hello’s in the future.

    And no event would be complete without me having found something left behind. So if any lady forgot their compact mauve and black umbrella at the Abbey last night, then I have it. Not sure how I’ll return it just yet, but drop me an email if it’s yours.

    So once again many thanks to all of you and its clover and sprout from me :-)

    What a great meet.... Andy & Jane have worked wonders with this meet, from very little turnout to 30+ attending last night. The DJ was amazing, the light and atmosphere were very buzzy and the band weren't bad either. Everyone in a great mood. Thanks to all that came to make this a meet i won't forget!

    Great this meetup is picking up! Really good news because its going to be a top night with a special event to celebrate/commisserate. Andy has served his time with FS and we've given him early release. Lets give him a night to remember (or a night he can't remember really) on Thursd and rock the Abbey. I'm just waiting for the venue to let me know what bands on & I'll post it when I know it. So more RSVPs guys & girlies, we need people to dance with!
