I've made a thread for the London Meetup - picking places can be a nightmare, and I thought that it might make life easier for everyone else if it weren't cluttering up this main thread; those attending, feel free to use it or ignore it.

Why not a place where he can get food local to London / England? Just curious.

I will not be in the EU. I have been to London before, therefore I've decided to offer a suggestion. I would suggest the Sherlock Holmes bar, across from parliament. Also London city hall has very good food.

I am not sure if those places have the space you require; they are the only places where the food was good enough to remember.

You won't notice a difference with news, blogs, my forum postings (other than maybe posting more during EU timezones), etc. -- the only difference is what part of the world I am working in, but I'll be doing the same thing ]].

While I am there, I would love to plan some casual STO meet-ups where players who attend can meet each other, grab some dinner (everyone will need to pay for their own expenses, though) and chat about STO and Trek.

Confirmed locations and dates:

  • Amsterdam, Netherlands - Saturday, June 15th
  • London, England - Saturday, June 22nd
  • Edinburgh, Scotland - Saturday, June 29th


Note: All 3 dates and locations above confirmed!

So... anyone interested? I would love to meet as many of you as possible If you are, reply and let me know for which location, and any ideas for where would be a good spot to grab some food AND can accommodate a (potentially) large group.

Cheers,

Brandon =/\=
I'd love to in theory, sadly I'm working on the 22nd and 29th or I'd be there. That said if you happen to pass through Yorkshire give me a yell

Seconded... and if you're driving from London to Edinburgh you'll come pretty close! Or have a flight stopover in Leeds/Bradford airport and we'll all fill the airport bars!

Ok i like the idea and its a nice thought but

WHY WHY WHY LONDON


England is a long country

so why not Birmingham.

that would have made more sense

but hey ho.

Oh and if you looking for cheap for space to meet and talk where no one cares who you are you need a WEATHERSPOONS there are plenty near the major train stations and a few next to thames use google.

Have fun

I sooooo want to come ... but as I am under 16 ... that may be difficult. Does anyone know ticket prices (train) for going to London from the North West?
Hopefully I'll come back from my break; this break is fun; I play intellectual games.

I hope STO get's better ...

Birmingham would have been great - being central it would likely be easier for most to travel to. I wouldn't hesitate if it were there, but London is far from being central and is prohibitively expensive to travel to.

Good idea! I will make separate threads later today or tomorrow for the other cities and close this one out to a link to each one, including yours That way those who can actually make it can post in the respective thread with their suggestions.
