UPDATED: 16th July - Please see new information

Just a quick thought, seeing how happily we seem to be settling in here... do ipernauts have meetups? I've not found anything related to this on the site, but that doesn't mean there aren't groups here for that.

If there's not anything of a semi-formal nature, do any of you good people in my address book fancy an informal meetup sometime over the summer?

Since I'm UK-based I suppose we'd be talking about a London location since it's likely to be the easiest point to reach for the majority of people. Having said that, I'm not averse to meeting elsewhere if that works out better.

If we do organise something it would be nice to have fairly even number of ladies and gents and the group as a whole probably should be small enough not to terriify the inhabitants of wherever we end up.

So I'll open this up to you good people and hope you want to comment or contribute. And for those of you not based in the UK, I'd be very happy to meet up with you all if possible but the logistics are a bit more complicated.

All of your thoughts are welcome, and thank you for listening :-)


UPDATE: 30th June

I'm going to suggest that we aim for a meetup one weekend in July, ideally in London which hopefully makes this workable for everyone. I'm available pretty much any time so I'm throwing it open to you folks.

Here's the kind of thing I'm hoping we can sort out:
  1. Which weekends work for you?
  2. Suggestions for where to meet, or visit?
  3. Any other contacts (real or virtual) who would also like to take part?
  4. Any special arrangements or information you might need help with?
Late-comers are welcome, so please do come along if you would like to, but it would be great if you said hi just so I've got some idea of who to look out for :)

If there are any questions, suggestions, or additional support needed. please post here or send me a private message and I'll try to help. Best wishes, and have a great Sunday!

UPDATE: 16th July

Bad news I'm afraid... I'm not going to be able to make this weekend (20th July) for the meetup. Many of those originally interested are also unable to attend this month due to personal and family committments, and the remaining names are listed in the sidebar. Obviously you can carry on without me, and I'd love to hear all about it if you do.

I'm still very interested in meeting up at some point --- while we still have some good weather at least --- so if anyone would like to get together later in the summer that would be wonderful!

Again, I'm sorry I won't be available for this one but I'll do what I can to help if anyone wants to get in touch.

Best regards,
