Thursday 12 April - London Yuri's Night

12 April 2012 is the 51st anniversary of Yuri Gagarin's flight into space. Each year since 2001, Yuri's Night (www.yurisnight.net) has promoted the annual celebration of this. So far, there are only two UK YN events registered and they are both in Scotland. Something should happen in London! I would volunteer to organize something myself (I did in 2001, 2002, 2006 and 2011), but I don't live in the UK anymore and I am already involved in an event. So, it's over to you London-based Interplanetary Travellers to make it something happen. Perhaps at talk, perhaps drinks/vodka toasts, perhaps a club-night, perhaps laying flowers on the Gagarin statue in the Mall, perhaps something else. Perhaps multiple events! Best regards, Chris

    An excellent meeting with a showing of Chris Riley's film First Orbit. No idea which other Meetup people attended as we have still to sort out badges, etc.

    Last year I went to a Yuri's Night gig at a pub somewhere in Camden organised by comedian Helen Keen and Sid Rodriguez of Skeptics in the Pub. Might be worth contacting them to see whether they are doing anything this year.

    Club fully booked for the 12th.
    Also the Texas Embassy is almost on Trafalger Square. Hopelessly inappropriate?

    Or I might be able to get a gang into the Oxford and Cambridge club at 71 Pall Mall, London at 71-77 Pall Mall, London SW1Y 5HD. Close to Yuri's statue!
