    Agree with Crunchy - lets do it again soon. Anyone want to suggest dates?

    Terie, it looks like the discussion in this thread has already veered towards another southern meet.

    Are we really all too simple to talk about two different meets in the same place?

    Hopefully I can make the next one. Did not anticipate April being such a shitty, shitty month for me.

    We couldn't possibly do that. Who'd clear up the mess?

    To throw myself into a strange and unusual conversation...

    I'd like to do a southern meet. Missed the april one due to being on honeymoon at the time, and north would be way too far for me. Plus, I'm sad because there are no writer's groups here and I can't attend any conventions this year :'(

    JF - Terrie has said she would organise a place and date up north during the summer, but that should not stop you from proposing a date and place down south and throwing it open to discussion. Though may be dates and places might be better than just one suggestion. The one we had back in April was good.

    I missed April's meet due to being away, and I would be happy to help organise another London-based meet.

    We need some suggestions on dates, I think.

    South would be way too far for me. It's impossible to please everyone with these things, but they've always been in London so far. You don't have much to worry about.

    Fran, Terrie is, I think, in Manchester and she has said that she would be arranging a summer meet there. There is no reason that I know of for there not to be more than one meet being planned. There might be a reason though, for there to be a separate thread for each meet - to lower the confusion level!

    Shara - what time of year were you thinking of?

    I'd love to come to one of these meetings (in London, or on one of the main bus roads)!

    So let's say (hypothetically) we were to arrange another southern meet. Would London be the ideal location? Or would Southampton/Portsmouth be easier for some? Or maybe Brighton?

    And as for a date, would late August/September be too soon?

    Throw some ideas at me and I'll see what I can arrange. I'm open to suggestions.

    I think for a southern meet London is sort of central for many of us. Three of us - Seun, Priene and I - travelled down from various locations in East Anglia. Jimmy came from the Land of Roundabouts, aka Milton Keynes. Going to the south coast would add time and money to the trip - train into London, tube to get to the station to get the train to the south coast. As for dates - you could start a thread to get some ideas of month and then a poll of various dates.

    Wasn't sure how many were driving or coming via train. I'm sure you can get discounts on trains into London, I don't travel that way often.

    I'll make up a new thread and anyone interested can drop in.

    I can get discounts on rail tickets because (going into smug mode) I have a senior rail card! I think tickets can be booked ninety days in advance - that is when the cheapest ones go on sale. Not too sure who drives in, but the price of petrol + congestion charge + cost of parking can make for a very expensive day.

    Looking forward to the new thread!

    End August good for me, but it's holiday season and a bad time for many people.

    Early September might be better?

    I would love to attend a meet, north for me though. Any time in August is good.
