Myself and pe@rson will be around NCL on the 27-28 January. Anyone fancy meeting up for a few drinks and maybe a little pop upto NCL to spot a few squeezyjets are more than welcome. If alcohol is involved, Kirkie might even show his ugly mug, lol. Pop your names down if you are coming, and we will arrange meeting nearer the time.

Just to clarify, I will be there on 27th January (Friday) and be leaving either on the 28th or the 29th. I have to work during the day on the 27th but can be free in the evening or anytime on the Sat.

I suspect a beer or two wouldn't be out of the question.

Well, I meet a fellow A.Net enthusiast for a beer after work every Friday afternoon, usually around 4pm til 6pm. Sometimes we meet in Wings Bar, so that would make sense, us being 'enthusiasts' and all! Not that there will be much moving at NCL this time of year!

Is that any good? Or are you planning an all-night/get-p!ssed/fall-over night out in toon?

Sat. 28th I'm going to see Chitty Chitty Bang Bang  Yeah sure , not sure what time tho. Could also make a beer on the Sunday before you go home.

Sean

PS - sunshine79, did you get you Wings membership sorted?

No, I haven't been up there lately. I don't finish work until 6pm on the Friday 27th, but can get there for around 6.30pmish, but could pick pe@rson up, wherever he might be lurking.

I could certainly make that. I finish work at 5:30 on the Friday. Alcohol has to be involved somewhere along the lines, everytime I see a thread on a meet I always (perhaps wrongly) conjure up images of guys in annoraks comparing lenses and trying to better each other every minute. So alcohol is a must.

Guy's I finish work at 3.30pm now woohoo!!! I managed to put a few hours holiday in for next Friday, so I might even see some daylight up at NCL. I'm still waiting of pe@rson to let me know of his plans. If he stops posting crap, he might just be able to sort himself out.

LOL! Better not tell the MAN meet crowd how successful it'll be. We are at 3, possibly 4 members and not a plane in sight (squeezy's excepted)!
