Not fixed for Friday yet by the way - there's a good chance it will move to be a Sunday lunch or dinner instead.
Love it, hate it, or ignore it, Christmas is nearing again. So come and have a lovely evening with us for our last official meet of the year and our designated festive-season party, I hope you can join the group for a dinner (and optional drinks) to meet more of our group, old and new, and celebrate with us another year of great meets and the group going from strength to strength on the 2nd Friday of December. RSVP for the dinner here - many go for drinks/clubbing afterwards, but YOU MUST tell me/comment here if you won't be eating with us.
Regular bars will be crazy busy and probably not taking bookings for tables; a dinner at a chosen restaurant is our traditional way to celebrate the year and meet people in a slightly different place to normal with food as the lubricant for ice-breaking and chat. You'll still be able to mingle a little during the meal or as its closing down, and there's always a group headed to a club or for later drinks afterwards if you want to boogie without it being a weekday after.
As we need to book seats YOU MUST keep your rsvp updated as it gets nearer the time - and please not last-minute. It costs time, money, and effort to run this group. People who RSVP then don't turn up and don't will hurt their ability to come to future booked events or to run events, and should expect to receive a visible black mark shown under their name for this group unless they make efforts to redeem themselves. Also note that anyone still on a waiting list by time of the event should NOT attend (except by personal arrangement with the organiser, do ask). You can be notified when there is space for you (click the button).
PS: RSVPs open near the time of the October bar social meet. Also, there is no regular 4th Thursday meet this month as usual for Christmas, as its too awkwardly placed.
