Lancashire Meet Up?
 
Have the meet ups at the Harvester, Middlebrook died a death or is it that there just isn't one planned at present? They used to be quite regular with the next one arranged on the back of the feedback from the last meeting. Unfortunately I only managed to make 1 meeting due to work committments but as we are currently waiting a CO it would be great to get back into things and pick brains.

Has the housing slump and the state of the £ put people off going to Oz? The state of this country and the impending move towards accepting the Euro as our currency (believe me it's going to happen) coupled with the never ending push to create a superstate of Europe which the UK will be pimped into by a very pro european goverment makes me even more determined to move! Get off your backsides, take your heads out of the Christmas editions of TV & Radio Times and get yer name down on this thread. Your Lancashire Meet Up needs you!

Unfortunately there appears to be a lot of apathy around at the minute. Mad City Fan threw down the gauntlet and I am willing to take up the challenge but I won't spend loads of my time trying to force or cajoal people into coming to a meet. Tried to get a response for interest but it seemed to fall on deaf ears. At least this thread may get back onto page 1 again so for all you people out there that want to share info and not feel alone in your endeavours get in touch. If enough interest is shown then I will organise something. Beast Boy and Mad City Fan any info on contacts, past undestandings etc at the Harvester please let me know. :thumbup:

Well we will always be up for a meet up even though we got our visa last april - they're great fun. There is always somebody who will need a little reassurance or advice and the kiddies absolutely love having a giggle too!!!

Re: Lancashire Meet Up?
 
thanks for the support Vicky can you think of a way to end the apathy that there seems to be? Don't mind organising things but, as I said, I'm not going to waste my time if no-one is interested. Maybe these replies will keep the thread bumped and people might see.

DickDePilot Mar 8th 2009 10:26 pm

Re: Lancashire Meet Up?
 
Still happy to organise but it would be more like an intimate meal as opposed to a get together with the interest shown so far. That said thanks for those who have shown an interest and those of you who have gone but still provide the support by bumping the thread.

Come on people of Lancs, Greater Manchester and anyone within a short drive of M61 Junction 6!

Re: Lancashire Meet Up?
 
I'll pop down to the Harvester to check out some dates. Then we'll put it to a vote and see how many can make the dates. You never know we may get some more interest if there is a date set, other than that we'll get to know each other quite well as it will be a small gathering. Mad City Fan, congrats on the3 win the other night, all you've got to do is reproduce the form in the league. Can you pm with details of anyone you spoke with at the Harvester or any agreements that were in place. Cheers. DDP:thumbsup:
