View Full Version : CG Meet. Or not, who knows?

Oy, England. For those CG'ers that happen to live there, I will be on your island in a few weeks. Even more, there is a reasonable chance that I will not just be in the area, but that I'll have a friday afternoon/evening available to go drinking with you. Jesjes.

Basically, I'll be in Coventry on Thursday Nov 7 and Friday Nov 8, and I will be going to Cambridge on Saturday at the latest. My Friday plans are not quite fixed yet, but a night in London or Reading might be feasible. Don't worry, unlike certain midgety architects, I will definitely not stay longer than a day. But in any case, beer would be good. :provost:

That'd be great. We've got a ton of building work going on at the moment, but could certainly host something in Reading that Friday. :beer:

Mr. Bas
22-10-2013, 15:08:04
Awesome, sounds great! I'll keep you updated :beer:

Oh god, if you two are coming I'm not sure I can make it.

zmama

That's fine, just leave the wine!

Funko

a babysitter!!You make no sense. So that is really you mr_B.

Venom
23-10-2013, 17:59:55
I'm already there! It's not a lot of fun, honestly. But I won't have anything better to do at the time.

23-10-2013, 18:16:01
Hi Venom! You stink!:shoot:

mr_B
24-10-2013, 07:38:34
I'm there too

mr_B
24-10-2013, 07:39:36
friday you say, hmmm gotta play darts with animal, snow flake and the other blokes

Funko
24-10-2013, 07:47:05
That's Saturday I think?

Who will be the cowardly bubbler!?

Mr. Bas
24-10-2013, 10:05:45
Mr. beetje, of course.

MOBIUS
24-10-2013, 10:15:18
I have to check my diary. Why couldn't it have been a week or two earlier, seeing as I'm in London for the next two weekends?:clueless:

mr_B
24-10-2013, 10:38:12
I have to check my diarrhea too

zmama
24-10-2013, 13:11:11
Drink some liquid cork, should do the trick.

Nav

Hey Bas, I'm up for a drink in London - is about time we tried another London meet! I may not be able to make it all the way to Reading (still not fit following another hip operation in August...).

mr_B
24-10-2013, 23:23:45
urban hipster?

Lurker
25-10-2013, 14:48:25
Where are you guys? Did you give me the wrong address again?

Mr. Bas
25-10-2013, 19:09:20
Sounds like a good plan too, Will. For me, Reading and London are equally convenient, so I don't have much of a preference. By the way, it's quite likely that I'll end up in England again later this winter so there may be more opportunities to drink and catch up. And pass out in an alleyway, of course.

Funko

one that's in a crazy timezone where it's the 8th November already?

I've been looking for a way to fast forward time, I can't believe Lurker had it all along

zmama
28-10-2013, 15:56:42
Noooo, :mr_b: is happening quick enough!

jsorense

Hi Nav! Why you lurking around? Sorry to hear about your operation. R U OK now?

zmama
29-10-2013, 15:42:21
Tsk Nav, you should have told more of us...well I mean me...so I could have worried!

Funko
29-10-2013, 16:27:31
You any good with a paintbrush Bas?

Lurker

Mr. Bas

I am a liability in anything that involves building, constructing, painting or DIY. So that's a yes, then. :beer:

FYI: Reading it is, arriving friday afternoon-ish and leaving again on saturday. First beer is on me, if that is any help in coaxing people like KG and debaser out of the woodwork and into the bar. :beer:

Since I'll have to travel through London on my way to Cambridge in any case, I'm fine with a short stopover as long as it doesn't require too much of a detour. Otherwise, it's very, very likely that I'll be in England again in a few months and I'll definitely do a proper stop in London then.

Funko
04-11-2013, 15:47:44
KG is now living in London so it's a bit more of a trek for him to pop out to Reading. :)

MOBIUS
04-11-2013, 15:54:26
I may come along. Maybe.

Mr. Bas
05-11-2013, 04:49:50
MOBIUS: that would be great!

And I've just been informed that KG will be in Iceland this weekend, as far as excuses go that's a pretty solid one.

Funko
05-11-2013, 14:51:24
Furthest he could get away on such short notice.

Funko
05-11-2013, 15:14:09
MOBIUS do you need somewhere to stay?

Nav
05-11-2013, 21:30:49
I think I'll have to pass on Reading, need to rest and can't really stand the place. ;)

Have fun!

jsorense
05-11-2013, 23:55:15
Nav, get yourself one of those scooters. You can run down to A pub in no time.

Mr. Bas
06-11-2013, 13:34:05
Too bad Nav, but thanks and I'll try and include a London stop to the next UK visit. :beer:

MOBIUS
07-11-2013, 09:38:19
Sorry, not going to be able to make it...:(

Unfortunately it's an important weekend for me to be here.

Hopefully make it to the next one, have lots of :beer::beer::beer:

Funko
07-11-2013, 11:16:25
Cool. :beer:

Nav
07-11-2013, 23:09:49
What is the plan, is it Friday night or Sat lunch? Depending on that and how I feel I may be tempted to come!

Funko
08-11-2013, 09:13:41
Definitely Friday night, not sure about plans for Saturday, Bas on Facebook was planning to meet someone else in Reading on Saturday.

Hope it isn't that short dutch guy.

I'm in Reading! (working in the Shed café)

Funko
08-11-2013, 16:45:12
Bas is arriving in about an hour, he's popping round to my house to drop his stuff off, I'll be home about 6, then we'll come and meet you.

Nav
08-11-2013, 17:01:15
Great stuff, see you later

MOBIUS
11-11-2013, 10:26:32
Hope you all had a good time - I almost made it... ;)

Funko
11-11-2013, 12:15:20
Yeah, was good.

Bas beat Will and me at air hockey, I managed to come from a leg down to win the darts 2-1. :beer:

Funko
11-11-2013, 12:15:51
There were no Germans, so the Deutcher Meister fussball table remained unplayed.

PICS!

Funko
11-11-2013, 17:35:18
I don't think there are any?

Mr. Bas
12-11-2013, 17:09:31
England was great, and much obliged wrt the hospitality :beer:

I don't think any pictures were taken, I definitely didn't make any in Reading. Better luck next meet.

Venom
12-11-2013, 20:49:54

And everyone tied in the queer-off after.

I came away with a souvenir, a Peppa Pig sticker on my bag.
