Actually, after much prevarication, I decided to PM a few people. A meet-up thread should follow soon-ish

Wouldn't pm-ing to multiple Brits, and answering to all make it work?
But even if I gave myself that job, I wouldn't like to pore through everybody's posts, looking  for clues as to which of the members are Brits (ssems to be the only way, ATM) , And I expect I'd miss some, that way.   And I definitely wouldn't have cheek to expect it if somebody else. So I'm looking for ways to make it easier than than that,   One might reasonably hope that most of the Brits would pop into a Brit sub-forum to say Hi. So that simplifies that task immensely.

Let's make a thread for you. :P

Maybe an admin can sticky it one day, if it happens to be handy or popular.

So, my efforts were not needed?

I was teasing you. Both in creating the thread, and in asking if I had made in in vain. Realised you posted while I was writing my post.

Do post pictures after the meetup. Pappy nor I will be able do that.

Sadly, no, Scrap. 

People just coulsdn't manage the same times abnd places. Couldn't get so much as two, besides myself and TeddyBear., no matter how hard i tried to compromise and tweak  things. It only resulted in a shedload of pointless PMs   We were going to try again in the Spring (because I pretty much go into hibernation over winter)  But then, TeddyBear died in the Spring.

I think somebody else will have to take over now. I won't get far without Teddy Bear , given my mobility issues, so now I probably have to count myself out , unless we meet up in my towm (I could stretch to taxi fares for that) . But that's surely not a reasonable thing to ask.

I'm in Worcestershire, about 15 miles south of Birmingham.

What town is your town?
Ever got that feeling that you're trying to teach a dog a card trick?

we had this discussion by PM, last year (woot! my memory is better than yours)
I live in Coventry, not far from you at all , as the crow flies.  I don't suppose you're planning on flying like a crow, though  :LOL:

PS, IIRC, we established that's too far North for half of the members, and too far South for the rest *sigh* And the cost of fucking trains was a big issue for everyone,  wherever we stuck the pin in the map . Oh!"  And I had a hard time persuading Teddybear to go anywwhere near a train station, because he hates cities, especialyl parking in cities  (Yep he did live in the same City as myself, but he lived at the leafy end , and was constantly verging on moving to the country) And then two - count 'em two whole people, yippee - suddenly  said that London's good for them -  Aaargh.

Too far outside my comfort zone.
To me it looks like you're saying that banning bombs didn't stop bombs going off therefore there is no point to gun control because it's a mental health issue.
