One of my favourite things about OFTDs is the chance to meet up with members from the site and be able to chat about our subject in a convivial social setting. We have had quite a lot of meet-ups these past few years and all are good days out.
The meet-up will be in Birmingham on Saturday the 6th May and will begin at midday. I know ive already got about half a dozen onboard for this, but if anyone would like to attend this, then please get in touch with me and i will send you the details of the venue. The place we are using is only 15 minutes walk from New Street station.
Whether ive met you loads of times, or just the once, or maybe never at all, please consider joining us on the day. Lots to talk about, much easier face to face than over a keyboard. Go on, you will enjoy it.
Im not planning to show any footage, thats reserved for the main OFTDs event in October.
I'm in too and it's good to know that the nucleus are already onboard for the as usual guaranteed conviviality. Be great if our numbers reach double figures on the day (though no requisite for tabling it a fine day out ). It would be particularly nice to see people who have only made the biggie in Derby so far or maybe even folk who've never attended any meet-ups before would like to give it a go, hopefully. You'll immediately find you're most welcome. We've chosen a good venue with historical charm which little doubt will be met with approval by anyone visiting for the first time.
This is in danger of this sipping from the front page, but 5 weeks today is the Brum meet-up. Half a dozen pints of Hob Goblin & The Club Sandwich beckon. Im sure GD will hope the attractive barmaid will be back, as i do too. Looking forward to meeting up with some of you again for chat and conviviality.
If anyone else wants to attend, email me and i will forward you the venue details.
