Members Meeting up???

I know that Kenny and others who are recent members here have previously met up in Liverpool, but that's a bit too far north (everything north of Watford Gap is foreign parts), so how about a meeting - perhaps in London where we can all get to???, or two meetings - those of us who live in the South attend one, those further North attend one in a place more convenient???

If you're having regular meet ups Uncle Joe some of us would be willing to travel and have a stopover. I know ex SAGA members who used to travel up and down the country attending meets.

That might be so darlin' but my mobility is far from being 'clever' and so travelling long distances is not an option for me.

I've been to local meets but wouldn't go further afield, nor overnight, perhaps it's just me but even at our local meets not everyone got on but at least it was only for a few hours, some people are different again than their online persona so I wouldn't take that chance

Re: Members Meeting up???

We were a Scotish group on SZ and a crowd of us still meet up. We go away for weekends, overnight stays, lunches. We've become great pals. We're going on an overnight stay to a favourite hotel of ours at Loch Lomond in October.

I hope you all manage to arrange meets and have a great time and meet good friends

Completely agree people I have met because we have been great friends on forums have turned out to be very different in real life. Not horrible people just not who I thought they were.

I found some of them had a hidden agenda, one girl sounded ok online but was off her head in real life, wouldn't have known what the truth was if it jumped up and bit her on her bum she told that many lies!
Guys asked for my mobile number, not a chance!

We've been lucky. We all get on well and have a good chat and lots of laughs. I might add that there were others on the forum who didn't meet with us. It's a personal choice. It's nice if you meet and you just click
