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

North England ET Meetup?

by t-------------- Tue Aug 26th, 2008 at 08:34:55 AM EST


I am converting a suggestion from metatone on the Monday opening thread to a full diary in order to see if the idea goes forward...

What about a North (West?) England ET meetup?

Suggestions for place: Liverpool and Manchester were given, but I would say anyplace accessible with public transport (preferably train) would be a candidate.

Date: Any suggestions can be placed here. I am traveling from the 6th to the 27th of September, so if possible outside those dates would be appreciated (but feel free to consider that time interval also, as your diarist is normally traveling and probably won't be able to attend anyway) . The sooner the better as the number of hours of sun per day is fading quite rapidly ;)

Everybody is invited (especially people from North Wales, as it is so close ;) )

There's a meeting in Paris on the 19th of Sept and also in Cardiff on 29th November. So we don't want them too close together (emotionally I'm still in Prague).

So that probably means either the weekends of the 18th or 25th October.

As for where. I used to live in Manchester so it'd be fun to see if I recognise any of it from 25 years on, but I've never been to liverpool. Or Yorkshire for that fact.

Anywhere with a reasonable set of connections to the rest of the country.

I am likely to be in Spain the last week of October - make it Oct 18.

Oct 18th sounds like fun

I'd like to but doubt that I could make another meet up since my weekends running up to the end of November will be busy and finances scant.

Oct 18th looks good for me, although I'd like to propose we do a final finances check after the Paris meet... ;-)

So, if it's Liverpool on the 18th October. Can we leave it to you to determine a suitable venue ?
