MeFi London meetup - already discussed many times before I know....

But did it ever happen?
Will it happen again?
Can anyone remember?

If it was a meet for the whole of the UK we could call it MeFUK and then I'd laugh cos it'd be funny.

Seriously though, maybe something UK wide meeting up in Birmingham or Manchester or something would be worth doing.

Anyone fancy a central UK meetup?

meeting up would be the spoddiest, spackiest thing I've ever done.... but I think it would be very interesting.

I'm in London.

I miss London and its wallet-sucking ways. It was truly spod, not to mention spack. *Sigh*

Manchester/London/Cambridge all sound good to me.

London, has to be. Thursday 19th April would be OK. Just before my exams...

(i'm going to regret this)

Ummm...19th April says Vendredi in my diary....which I believe translates to Friday....

So Friday 19th April location not as important - London maybe...although I start in leeds that day....

Bleh. I can't do Friday 19th, I'll be in Oxford (incidentally, if anyone else is in Oxford we could meet up). The problem with that date, it seems, is that it's when a lot of people are going back to uni.

beer will get us through this.

I'm in Oxford.

I don't see why it "has" to be in London. Somewhere more central would be far more sensible.
posted by salmacis at 5:18 AM on April 5, 2002 a follow-up, a meet on a Saturday night in Birmingham would be quite convenient as long as it coincided with a West Bromwich Albion home game...
posted by salmacis at 5:20 AM on April 5, 2002

OK....I see no compelling reason to have it in London...but no compelling reason why not...I have to travel anyway...

So...any further offers....Oxford is also cool.....
posted by mattr at 5:24 AM on April 5, 2002

it has to be London. everywhere else is not London, therefore is no good.
posted by Frasermoo at 6:12 AM on April 5, 2002

Ok, i meant to propose Thursday, 18th April (sorry),
howsabout Oxford (which is accesible by bus/coach/train from London/Birmingham cheaply) but am willing to go to either of the other two locations.

Salmacis, Adrianhon & dash_slot- are in Oxford, mattr is ok with Oxford, so..... I propose the Kings Arms, Broad St, 8pm in the no smoking section?

Who's taking the pictures??
posted by dash_slot- at 6:37 AM on April 5, 2002

ah nuts. ok, i will try and make that.
posted by Frasermoo at 6:41 AM on April 5, 2002

Sounds fine to me.

Spods of the world unite!
posted by salmacis at 6:47 AM on April 5, 2002

Kilmarnock to Oxford? No thanks.

I want to see pictures though.
posted by jackiemcghee at 1:20 PM on April 5, 2002

Ack! I'm only in Oxford on April 19-21st, sorry! Being there on the 18th would unfortunately be overstaying my welcome. But I'm (seriously) not bothered if it goes ahead - there will be other meets.
posted by adrianhon at 2:32 PM on April 5, 2002

There can be more than one meet. One of them shall be in London.


When it is, I shall be there. Well, I'm going back to university on the 19th. In London.
