Post New Year meetup

Well, it is going to be the first meetup of the new year, so we might as well see it in with your new organiser that is, of course, me! This will be at a pub in Central London called Marquis of Cornwallis. It is based in Bloomsbury. So, if you wish to have a post new year celebration to shake off the Christmas and New Year blues, please come along! (Slight change of time - it will be starting between 7.45 and 8pm)

    No show (well, apart from Lilly who I missed). Disappointing to say the least! So, I believe the next one will be much, much better!

    That is not true, I did turn up and stayed for 15 mins. I asked at the bar re: meetup name etc ! I was disappointed too

      Ok. Sorry about that. I sent everyone a message with my mobile number on it. The trouble with these meetups in pubs that I find is that we cannot always distinguish those who are attending the meetup. I did have a sign Byrd to Bach but leaving signs like that can be quite embarrassing as others in the pub look at you strangely. So, again, sorry for missing you but this has not put me off organising the next one because I believe that I have to keep making the effort to make this work and work well for all members. However, 15 mins was a little short as one has to consider that myself, and some others may have a bit of a trek to central London. Those that live and work in Central London and in easy tube or bus reach will obviously find it easier.

      Also, for one of the meetups which I have started, I waited 45mins for my first member to appear, then the second member came 15 mins later. The next meetup I think should be a get-together in a pub or cafe because I need to meet the core and committed members and speak to them. One member suggested going to a concert which I think is a credible idea but just going to the concert will mean saying hello for 10 mins before and rushing to get our trains when it is finished with very little, or no interaction. Usually with "concert was lovely, er...sorry, I have to get my train back...see ya!" and that will be it. So, watch this space! I will let us recover from Christmas and New Year first before anything else. OK? So, the next one will be better! Greg

    OK. Nobody turned up to this and I was a little disappointed. So you will just have to wait until I organise the next meeting. Goodnight!

    So so sorry, I was going to go there and had it in my diary. Unfortunately, I neglected to look at my diary yesterday. Do let me know when another meet up is planned.
