    Following on from a previous thread where loads of us seem to be in the same part of the country, how many forum members would be interested in coming down to somewhere around the Guildford area for a meet and what sort of thing would people like to do?

    I don't want to tread on the toes of Gordon's Events so something mainly social would be a nice change from other deliberate events where the aim is to listen to as much equipment in as short a time as possible. The Friday evening of the Bristol Show was great so perhaps something like that but somewhere quieter if anyone has any ideas...

    A night out in London was also mooted a couple of months ago so I suppose the key is how many people would make the effort to come and what would people like to do?. :)

    What about the frozen wasteland also known as Newcastle, now that's "up North". No shandy :beer: consumed up here, just broon ale!

    The Midlands makes much more sense!

    Good motorway access

    Middle of the country (ie neither extreme North or South, East or West))

    Close to me

    Close to a few others too!

    Also, I might be able to provide some accomodation as from Friday I will have two houses! :eek:

    Wouldn't want to go further than the Midlands- the Ice Floes and Polar Bears put me off somewhat.

    Manchester suits me :thumbsup:

    Would it be worth tying in with the Northern AV show in Manchester (29-30 Oct). Or is that a bit sad?
