Lightbulb Southern/London mini meet/drinks whatever....?

I'm starting to be jealous and a bit annoyed at those northern guys, having private mini meets at the drop of a hat!

I thought we could do something in the South/London? I do realise that people in the south, with our hectic lives, can't probably make a full weekend , so what about drinks/lunch/dinner / whatever a Saturday or Sunday?
Don't mind organising something late September/early October, if there is any interest ?
No offence to northerners of course!

Cheers,

Maria

Cool

Mike,
I think a Scotland meet might be in order! How about Saturday and Sunday atSligachan on Skye in Scotland in September. We could call it the '6S' meet!
(Sorry for the hi-jacking Maria!)

Sounds good to me Matt. The midges might have died down a bit by then too!

That sounds like an excellent plan to me. How about we find a friendly farmer just outside of London and try camping one Saturday night? I don't mind meeting in London, but I'd ride my bike there and home and then wouldn't be able to have a few drinks. This also means that those not used to riding in London needn't come into town (we don't want to put them off biking for life!).

Thanks for putting my geography right Jake!
To give an example of how good I am in geography:

(Somewhere in Paris, first time I met my other half)
Me: where are you from?
Him: I'm from North England.
Me: So you're Scottish!!!
Him: ...."non!!! Je suis Anglais!!!"



Yes we are going to buy the tipi tent. Big and confy! Not sure if the Arran or the "luxury one"! We should get it by September for our holidays! Not keen on spending 2 weeks in the small tent!

Why not? If there is any interest? Although I am not acquainted with any farmers

Anyone know of some place in the South where we could pitch a few tents and have few drinks?

Matt,

I would say that's a great idea!

Depending on when it is, you might even get some people from over the border join in, if permitted.

Suggest you start a new thread for this meeting, though, to avoid me having to read about the southern jolly...

What about Sussex?

hmmm... if we do a meet in a campsite, I'd rather outside London, in Sussex for
example? http://camping.uk-directory.com/sussex_camp_sites.php

Only a short ride from London and could be cool?

Also what about saturday 6/ sunday 7th October ?

Hi Matt

Sligachan is quite depressing under cloud. So is Glencoe - but it's a lot nearer!

Why aren't y'all whizzing down to the Belgian meeting??????Have a winter meet in Glencoe -our very own Elephant Rally>>>>

Ah'll tak' the high road....etc
