If I can make it maybe i can tag along with you Bats and get the GO bus from Peterborough!!

Ill see what i can do! Oh to be in demand with a full social calendar! lol

On a side now maybe a moderator could change the title of this thread to Christmas shindig now on 30th January....for any members that havent logged in for a while like me! lol
Ah, well I wont be getting the GO bus now as the potential flight with La Zoe has been postponed. Depending on what time I decide to head for TO I'd be happy to give you a lift to Oshawa GO station or downtown, depending. It all depends. Weather, money, tiredness etc.

Why would you rename it or start a new thread?

Everyone knows where the venue is, the time and the date and the thread name.

Why confuse things???

The in-crowd (in this thread) does. But anyone perusing the forum would assume it's chat about a past event and wouldn't click to find out it's still to come.

Yes there are many of those factors! even if the date is free....this time of year throws up the weather, money, tiredness hurdles! Lets play it by ear.

It's trending at the top and you and Paul found it no problem.

I did have a look in the Meet Up section. I'm not sure how that works but I'm fairly certain I didn't see it there. Schnooko am I mistaken???

If not then I'll stick it in the Meet Up section on the correct day!

I hadn't stuck it in there, totally forgot! Feel free to do it (I'm away right now! Hi from sunny Miami!).

The mods don't really watch Maple Leaf too closely so if you feel strongly then PM one and ask them to rename, but since it's trending towards the top, people will probably still check and a quick skim of the last page shows that it's coming up!

I'm looking forward to seeing everyone again, and meeting some new faces too!

Done. Mine's a pint.

On edit: We'll be there: Novo-tel and lunch booked although not where I first wanted, but somewhere that we haven't been before which looks very interesting.

Sadly I'm unable to make this one. Just recovering from recent surgery and will be out of commission for a good few weeks Mr L might make it over though weather and nursing duties permitting!!

Sorry to hear you won't be in attendance, I wish you a speedy and comfortable recovery.

Be good to see Mr L if he can get down.

Get well soon!

Hopefully Mr L can make it down, it's looking like it'll be a good turnout!

I'll probably be one of the earlier arrivals as well, I'm usually down by 5:30 or so, so happy to meet up with whoever else is around for an early start! (JamesM, at minimum!)

I'm reliable.

I saw this while I was on holiday, hopefully you can make it down again this time! Would be great to catch up. BTW, last time I was in the UK I looked for the beer you have in your pic, but I'm guessing it's not widely available as I wasn't able to find it! Booo....

The turnout is indeed looking impressive, I'm quite excited for this one!
