Pick a date, pick a time, pick a city. Democracy doesn’t work when organising stuff like this - someone generally needs to take charge.

I'm sure democracy would have worked fine if it had picked a northern city.

Ok, 18th August, London. Everyone should meet at 7pm at the Montagu Pyke on Charring Cross Road.

I’m not sure if that’s a dig at me or not - I almost certainly won’t be going regardless of where it is, though there’s a slight chance I could’ve made Manchester depending on the timing. I also never told Denny to pick a Northern City, just pick a place.

The point I’m making is that after eight pages there isn’t any specific consensus so whoever is taking the reigns of organising needs to be quite decisive.

It was the same back when we were trying to organise Scotland based meet ups back in the day - someone had to pretty much just say “We’re meeting here, at this time, on this date. If you can make it, it’d be great to see you.” I think anyway - it was quite a while ago.

EDIT: Just looked up the thread in the archive and it took nearly fifteen pages to come to consensus on the date and a hell of a lot more to decide where we were going(as it turned out - Wetherspoons). :lol:

See Brexit for democracy works when it gives you the result you wanted.

I think this might be the wisest idea, they are both relatively easy to get as the have plenty of transport links.

Even though London is closer for me, I'd prefer to go Manchester and make a wee trip of it rather than struggle to get trains home etc... plus then I could go a little further North back home, and join up with the Glasgow meet n' meat :shifty:

I'd struggle with the end of August, on account of being in Devon to see my mam for my birthday.

Reading is a gooseberry fool tip.

Lets face it, not everyone is going to make this event or be happy on the location but i say we try and pencil something in for now'ish and for 6 months time...

We could do:

Manchester Meet n' meat: Aug / Sept
London Meet n' meat: March /April

An even every 6 months in different places, and whoever can make it - makes it.

Additionally:

International Meet n' meat: on an ad hoc basis
Glasgow get together: on an ad hoc basis
