Re: Southern Meet

Bug, just my thoughts, i seem to have two concepts of a Southern meet.

The first one is quite a small one which would happen in South Hants and roughly cover Bournemouth to Brighton and up to Guildford. Hours drive tops.

But i think it's possible to expand on this, if it takes place somewhere between Basingstoke and Petersfield (can't of anywhere nice off the top of my head) you could get people from South and West London, and Kent, and maybe brave people from North and East London and Essex too. Which would be a significant few, hour and a half to 2 hours tops. But it does make it slightly further for anyone in the South West which could cause problems.

And the bigger the meet the more chances there are of loopy people coming from further afield

Quinn is Tintin, Q is Betty Boop, LeeBex is Mr Benn, Wrinxy Jinxy is a whole Agatha Christie suspense novel by himself. AJ's not a bear but BazzaKarhu the earth pig is. Debs is the Essex Pink Orange fiend. Jason is Marlon, i'm Marlon, Marlon is Spartacus. Chris155 (Andy's dad) ate all the pies. AlfaJack, you b*stard! Jimbo's a superstar. Speedy, Barry, San and Thompatruck turn into pumpkins at midnight.

Re: Southern Meet

Why not organise the meet within pushing distance of your house
