What we're about

Otter (Lutrinae) - A cute and generally awesome animal that holds hands with other otters so they don’t drift apart. Has not been known for rude, abusive or exploitative behaviour towards other otters or for erecting sets or ridiculous social constructs preventing them from enjoying the little time the have on this planet. In spite of their awesomeness, however, some otters are distant cousins of the skunk.

Have you noticed something about most meetups? More often than not, you don’t actually manage to make any friends. Of course, it may be entirely your own fault, but very often, nobody is really at fault – you like the person, you talk to them, you reckon that you could be good friends, then you go home and suddenly… nothing happens.

So, by setting up this group, I was hoping to create a network of people open to making new friend. That was over four years ago. And look, it started to work! I’m proud to say that many great friendships have been formed through our little group.

We don’t just meet up to do stuff together – rather, we try to make some friends doing some stuff along the way (so that we can avoid awkward silences as much as possible :))

We don’t have any age restrictions – the age of our members ranges from 20 to 75. This group is certainly not for networking and it’s definitely not one of those groups “for professionals”. It’s really hard to describe an average Lutrinian, because we’re an extremely diverse bunch. But still, I’d say that a Lutrinian is left off centre, liberal, cosmopolitan and quite often an introvert (many of us are a little shy, but only until we’ve broken the ice :))

We do get an occasional corporate creature, an exec or something, but the problem with them is: they normally don’t seem to fit in. They often try to dominate the conversation, they don’t open up and I get the feeling that they’ve been spoiled by their corporate jobs so badly that they can’t transform back into a regular human being.
But then again, we do get an occasional cool duck who used to work a job like that but repented their ways.

But no, this is not a communist meetup :) And, no, it’s not a sect, either. We won’t be smoking anything, and we won’t stalk you or threaten you if you decide not to come again. Pinky swear.

Ah, yes, almost forgot. Do join our Facebook group at https://www.facebook.com/groups/610930639018265/

Multimedia PUB QUIZ on Zoom - Fun game to test your general knowledge

PLEASE NOTE: If you should have problems signing in, please give me a ring at[masked].
---------------------------------------
Hey guys,

The idea is fairly simple. You log in, listen to the questions and write down your answers. Apart from "regular" questions, there will be photos and audio questions, too. At the end, everyone will count their own points. Yes, this game is based on all of you being honest, because, well, it's a game - otherwise, what's the point in playing, right? :)

The event is free, but since the Meetup membership and Zoom subscription are not, I would be grateful for any donation. Back in the old days, I would always ask for 1 quid, and it's no different this time. You can donate at paypal.me/fleischermike (no, you don't need a PayPal account, a card will do, as well). However, if you donate £2 or more, I'll send you my double-feature ebook containing plenty of film-related anecdotes, which you can read on any e-reader. All you need to do is to leave me your e-mail address.

Still, donation or not, I won't treat you differently :)
