3 Hour Boat Cruise Disco @ Kingston Pier

Hi All,

UPDATED on Sat 17th May @ 11am


Just a reminder that RSVPing does not not guarantee you a place as I have allowed people to RSVP without a payment. The RSVP just shows you interest, but only a payment guarantees you a place. 


Last payment date and time

I was initially hoping to limit the number of people to around 120-130. I have had over 10 phone calls today for spaces. I have listed their names and guaranteed them and their guests a space on the boat. This has resulted in the limit going up to 140 now. Sorry no more phone calls. It's been advertised for 3-4 weeks now!



Hi All,

The boat cruise disco has certainly proven to be a popular event! Over 100 tickets paid for!

Not a drop of rain predicted in Kingston, Richmond, and Hampton, and it will be cloudy/sunny. It will give us a chance to enjoy the outside area of the boat as well as have some of the windows open :)



Verifying your place on the day

If you can please bring a printout of the email confirmation I have sent to you then that would be good, however I have all the info I need to verify you without the printout!


Taking the piss

If you have not paid, please do not pretend you have! You will not be allowed to any meetups I organise and relevant meetup organisers informed.


Time

Unlike some other meetups, this is one meetup you will have to be on time for so please allow time for delays in your journey to it! We will start ticking off people at 7:15pm and the boat will leave at 7:45pm!! I will personally be aiming to get there between 6:30pm and 7pm.

My mobile:[masked]


Finding the place and me

Address: Kingston Turks Pier, Thames Side, Kingston Upon Thames KT1 1PX

It is behind the John Lewis car park. The boat will be easy to spot as it’s a large double decker as per the picture.

Using the postcode Google maps shows a slightly off location which is about 5 minutes walk from the actual Turks Pier. When you view Google maps with the postcode you can see where the Turks Pier actually is in the same view. However, if you type into Google maps the words ‘Kingston Turks Pier’ then it will pinpoint the exact location.


Dress Code

Whatever you would normally wear at a meetup.


Food and drinks

You cannot bring any food or drinks on-board. However, if you want to bring a sandwich or some snack to consume while you wait to board then feel free to do so, there are bins nearby to put the rubbish into. And yes of course there are lavatories on the boat J


Anyone with a nice camera want to volunteer to help take pictures?

Looking forward to a great evening out!


Cheers,

Sanjay

    As a participant if this group I believe that it's my duty to highlight any inappropriate behaviour I notice in the group, that is for the interrest of the whole group: the 2 individuals who were involved with donating money to the homeless man had no right of attacking the man behind them telling him to also give money to the homeless man, calling him 'mean', charity is between us and our conscious, the last thing I want is to be told by a member of the group what I should do on the streets, although we meet as a group, I believe that we are still individuals inside and outside the group, so could we all respect our boundaries please, I hope we can all learn from this so it does not happen again, hence posting the incident here.

      I believe most of us have had enough with all the judgemental attitude that has become the norm in today's society. So these meet ups should be a loving and caring place for all us. We get bombarded on a daily basis so these meet ups are not an occasion to just get selfish by drinking and losing ourselves, it should also be a place to give and receive some TLC, it doesn't harm or cause a dent in someone's pocket. There is no harm in asking or making a suggestion but that is different from making a personal attack on someone. Just because someone is not giving money to a homelss person does not make him mean, we don't know, that person could have a Direct Debit going out of his account every month to help homeless people or another good cause.

    Disco part was ok... some music was good and other tracks not so good but then Music is there to try and cater for everyone's taste.

    Thanks Sanjay, Julie & Helen for your time and efforts. I believe it is not an easy task to gather and check all us nutters. So what's next anyway, a zeppelin disco? :)

      Sounds like a great night really sorry i missed it hopefully there will be another as this one seems to have been a success

      May 18, 2014

  • Nayla

    It shouldn'be Just about focusing on the "good time" we had and not bothering about the bad time one of us had. That's what make a "Top Group".

    May 18, 2014

  • Nayla

    Sanjay, your dedication to this group is appreciated, not easy to manage/deal with 150 people. I had a good time but it is imperative to highlight inccidents no matter how small, that is what makes this gropup different from otters, it should not be just
