As the title implies, who, out of curiosity, would be interested in a mass meeting?

Obviously we'd have to find out where everyone is and try to come up with a mutually beneficial meeting place.

As for when we should do this, well, I'm not suggesting anytime soon but just throwing the idea out there and seeing what everyone thinks?

I know that I personally would love to meet some of you guys, especially the ones who correspond on a (or almost) daily basis (you know who you are) ;)

Again, I know there is quite a few of us in Yorkshire and quite a few in London so maybe LukeScotty can get a list together of all our locations?

Anyway people, I'd appreciate your thoughts on this.

Party at Banes it is then.

Bane & Tony do the food
Shakey brings the Strongbow
Cirrus can do the door (dont want any gate crashing, it could end up on youtube)
Me I'll bring some real ale

I'm not normaly one for get togethers, but it's a possible from me providing it doesnt clash with work ;) beer time is always a good time.

OOh OOh I've thought of a location, a sparks trip to the USA ......ok Pensilvania........mdshunk how bigs your gaffe we can crash on the floor we dont mind :)

I can just see it now a bar full of sparks with the general chat consisting of dissing the establishments electrical installation ;)


Gotta go for now , nurse says I've been on here too long already.....cuckoo cuckoo .....a wandering we will go :D

Baldrick the pencils & underpants if you please !!!!

I could accommodate everyone, but I'm not sure how practical of an idea that is.

That's not your house?
Indeed. Built 1997. New roof just last week, due to hail damage.

I think I'll move to the States and be a sparks.

Back to the meet. What we could do is all send our house keys to LukeScotty who would then draw them out of a bag and send them to someone else. Then on the designated date we all go to the appropriate address for a "meal", or am I getting my parties mixed up?

Why do you guys think the house looks spooky? It's just a regular house. Maybe the color choice? It's fairly typical American architecture.

I like it, sort of colonial meets victorian pastiche, nice pitches to the rooflines, that intimation of a turret, the big eaves. the small attic windows implying here is an owner with 'servant's quarters. :D could only be American vernacular.

Actually, that's just there to make headroom for the attic stairway. A dormer would look dumb without a window, so it has a window! ;)

Ah I see.......so the servants are quartered in the stables round the back, sensible move.

*Tries to steer thread back on course*

So far that's only 3 of us who have actually said they'd be up for it. Hmmm.
Anyone else? Or are the words horse, flogging, dead beginning to form in anyones mind?

Bane (Yorkshire/Humberside)
EasyFox (???)
Tony.towa (Warwickshire)
Spudmeister (Yorkshire/Harrogate)
Sparkyork (York, surprisingly)
Cirrus (???)

6 people so far! We're getting there!
Now, my geography is crap. Where the hell is Warwickshire and where does EasyFox and Cirrus live?

Hopefully get a few more names down and find somewhere in between. York or Hull area is sounding good to me so far ;)
