Discussion in 'General Chat' started by Chadford, Feb 19, 2012.
A few years ago I went on a bender with Signs, Abbeygoo, Woodywizz, Pave (no longer a member) with drinks provided by Kieron. Kieron just lives 5 mins frm me and we've met up a couple of times for a cuppa and a catch up.
I've only met met up with Deadringers for a few hours one day as we were in the same area. Didn't get to chat a great deal as we were at a show but he's a nice guy. I've been to plenty of various forum meets over the years and some of my best mates are from forum meets from years ago and most people are really nice. I can't think of many times I've come away not liking somebody.
A while ago some of the photography section members did run weekends away and things like that.
Don't think anyone on here lives near me.
Did once - was very disappointing though - most of them looked nothing like their avatars
I'd like to see Gasdad meet up with PP
It's probably best, depending on the nature of the meeting topic, to maybe keep it to a small gathering and meet at someone's home. This allows you to have a machine(s) running and also provide other useful facilities too.
Photography is also a great topic as somone has already mentioned.
First you have to think of a theme. Next you have to think of a location. Then you see what develops.
Went out in Rugby. People from all over the country, Devon, Southampton, Blackpool, London, Birmingham.
Went mental. Got hammered.
Stayed in a travel lodge.
What happens in Rugby stays in Rugby.
You beat me to it!
Properly missed this, when's the next one?
Yes, a few times. Met up, got drunk. Good nights. Would definitely do it again. In fact we were due to meet in Liverpool in March but that's fallen through.
I dislike you all, why would I want to meet any of you?
I remember that .... just.
As well as Mr Incredible, Signs, Woodywizz, Pave etc - I've also been on the golf days and met Deanym, Dony (top man), Ultima (legend), domtheone and always had a blast ..... golf, beer and naked ladies. Quality.
Kieron is the host with the most though .... what a genuine, kind and generous bloke. Always sorts me out with drinks, tickets etc when in Blackpool ... top man and a really nice family.
I've met plenty of people from AVF and always had a great laugh.
Met loads. A few through trades but most through planned meetups.
Met a few member down at the Bristol Show a few years ago........ Can't really remember which year exactly but thinking it was about 2004/2005!?!?!?
Met up and the show and then went out for some drinks..... Was quite good
Met one or two AVF folk but have met a couple of times With People on my XBOX LIVE. It's a bit akward though when in a pub and you talk to people using their Gamertag name instead of their real names...
Haven't met anyone from here but I have met some folk from another forum I moderate on, went pretty well, went to a gig and had a decent night out in Edinburgh.
Got my first blue-light taxi to the bus station too which was nice!
Only time i've met with people have been for trades at a motorway services and a train station. So not very exciting to be honest.
You're right. You get some funny looks shouting "BEARMAN!!!" across a bar at the top of your voice.
Met some really good chaps through this forum. With the exception of Iccz, he is a tool.
aww Aren't you sweet!
Yep as Desmo said we met up when him and his wife were in my neck of the woods at a show.
Unfortunately Desmo is also a nice guy and I wanted to give you all some gossip of how we ended up having a drunken punch up but it was all actually rather civilized!
There has been talk on the PC gaming Forums for a LAN gaming session which I think would be pretty good...The only problem is finding somewhere that we can use for all those PCs for a weekend!
You an' me, ooouuutside....noooooooow!!!
I'd be up for that only problem is my pc weighs a tonne! And I don't have a car.... So I'd have no way to get anywhere :L
Miss those days
So why did you stop.?
I need to keep my eyes peeled more for these meets, wouldn't mind meeting a few folk from here.
Not sure. Peeps lost interest.
Must have been the golf
Or your wives?
I've had a few offers
