We haven't done a 'Round-table' for a while now so I thought it was about time we had another CG Piss-up followed by traditional Chinese.

Talking to RC and Funko the best dates seem to be the 26th April or the 3rd May at the moment. Any takers?

It's a bit of a swim, can I nominate a proxy?

Funkodrom
03-04-2003, 10:27:30
I can do both those.

The 2nd of May is going to be our greatest gig so far in South London, maybe we could make a weekend of it.

Drekkus
03-04-2003, 10:29:17
What about the Counterglow Amsterdam meet?? April 18!!

Who's there?? Funko, KG and me?

Funkodrom
03-04-2003, 10:32:34
Nills Laagerbaak will be there too.

Seeing the missus.

My preference, though, is slightly for the 26th but, given my uncertain domestic arrangements, there remains the possibility that I might have to cancel at any time so I am not dogmatic.

Nav
03-04-2003, 12:18:37
I think I'd prefer the 26th too, though I'm definately up for the London gig on the 2nd.

I will be in Amsterdam the night of the 17th for a concert, so we'll have to figure out how and when we'll meet, but that will be no problem.

I think we get in about lunchtime, then have to get the train from Schipol to Central station, walk to our hotel then straight out on the beers!

I'm in the Eastern USA. And terribly buisy through the summer, though I have a faint hope of getting over to UK/Amsterdam at some point this year. Need my fix...

M$ Autoroute estimates 50 minutes. By car. And by train?

Drekkus

By train one hour. Trains run 24 hours a day.

Chairman Yang
04-04-2003, 09:59:13
How many are going to Amsterdam as of now?

Funkodrom
04-04-2003, 10:07:45
K_G and I are going over with a group of 10 people and meeting Drekkus there for an afternoon and maybe/hopefully C@H and Vincent as well.

One of the original group we were going with dropped out so Shakey might come too.

Drekkus
04-04-2003, 10:10:11
Funko, KG and Nills are going with a group of "friends" from the UK to Amsterdam. So I will go and meet them on friday 18th. Maybe Vincent and C@H are coming as well.

Are you coming by train or car?
You guys come to amsterdam on friday (or whenever you like), where we will meet the brits in a bar friday afternoon. We'll have beers and those who want can have other substances of choice. Somewhere in the evening/night we'll leave for Rotterdam and crash at my place. I will have to go to Enschede on saturday afternoon, so you'll have a few options. You can hang around rotterdam or amsterdam and go back whenever you like. Or you can drive with me to Hengelo or Enschede where I will put you on the train to Hamburg.

notyoueither
05-04-2003, 22:50:18
Take the last train to Hamburg,
And I'll leave you at the station.
You can be be there by four thirty,
'Cause I made your reservation.
Don't be slow, oh, no, no, no!
Oh, no, no, no!

26th April looks best for me.

Aynsley Lister concert on the 3rd May at the Southhill Arts Centre (which was the same venue as Sonic Undermind were going to play before they had to cancel).

I am going to be in London on the 3rd of May anyway.

Drink beer and eat chinese food - possibly whilst drinking vinegary house red wine.

How many are going so far?

Resource Consumer
12-04-2003, 00:10:04
10 to the power of 6 beers

In truth we have had between 3 (minimum) to (stand correction) 20+

Resource Consumer

I'm going to see Aynsley this Thursday in Frimley, so I'll make my mind up after that as to whether I want to see him again so soon afterwards.

Of course, we could meet on successive weekends anyway.

Just make sure we agree on a date pronto, otherwise this meet will go the way of the Poly one a couple of months back - no one could make a final decision between a couple of dates and nothing happened!

But we're smarter than Poly aren't we...;)

Hopefully.

Actually I might come to both, just to annoy everyone.

Resource Consumer
