Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

Sadly there was that whole other-end-of-the-table thing going to on, glimpsed dimly past people's heads and through bottles.

I think there's a political consensus that there will have to be more swapping and mingling next time.

On the subject of which - London? Barcelona? Prague? (Wiltshire?)

I'm happy to go to a meeting anywhere, so long as it's not before July (not last weekend of). Tho August may be expensive travel-wise.

Praque is good (dons beer goggles, mmmmm).

I think London should have a local meet but I think it's unfair on our continental cousins.

Barcelona, now we're cooking with gas.

How about Berlin ? We might be able to attract the Scandanavian contingent.

I wouldn't worry about that. I'd expect to see meet-ups in other parts of Europe as well.

You're right, we needed more musical chairs--and I was one of the guilty of sitting put, talking to the people nearby. I didn't see the time go by. Then you and Helen had to leave and I realized the afternoon was over... Duh! Hope we can catch up next time. ;)

Me too...it was too easy to sit and relax in one spot...the chair was comfortable, the wine was flowing...oops, where did the time go???

Lil thinks everyone should have been made to introduce themselves...that would have forced interaction (or more of it...)

Hey...tell Lilliana to set up a login and you can both post...looks like she's starting to get interested if she's telling you to comment for her!!

Helen, Barbara...we might have Lilliana on board sooner than she thinks!!

I have to say there's another solution for those that travel. My one-on-one meetings with Nomad and then Oui when visiting Amsterdam covered a lot of ground.

It goes without saying that anyone visiting Finland should drop me a line. The Man from Lyons did just that and we had a super chatty lunch about OR - among many other subjects.
