Title: London's calling, who is up for neckin a beer?
Post by: matta on April 29, 2010, 02:21:28 AM
Hey Guys,

I'll be in London May 17th - May 26th, AES is May 22nd - 25th, which is one of the reasons I'm coming over, so maybe we might see even more of our European/American contingent? Anyone else making the trip across the pond? I suggest a trip to the good ole Duke for a beer or 3? Anyone in for a night out and away from the soldering iron?

Cheers

Matt

Matt I'm up for it.

By the way it should be "neckin' " & not "necking".  We're talking drinking in London !!

Updated  ;D

Well it seems it will be us 3, though the first time it was just you and me, LOL! Hopefully we can draw some of the others out of the woodwork?

Normally, we head to the Duke of York near Victoria Station because it's sort of central !

Why not here:

 A history lesson whilst drinking. Heck, it would almost be educational!
It quite central as well... and not far from convent garden, etc if things
are going to get outta hand.  ;D

I'll be along assuming I'm free.

Should be at AES anyway. Do I need some sort of pass, or am I going to have to just pretend that I'm important somehow?

Anyone still prefer the Duke? If so I'm going to suggest next Thursday night, 20th May? Thoughts?

Cheers

Sorry Matt,

My AES plans fell apart.  really bummed I won't be there.

Regards

Jon

Ok, so are we confirming that we will do 'The Duke', Thurs 20th May? Lets forget the AES idea so as not to confuse things... So far our party is Rob, Me, Mr Mclunk and Andy (maybe)? Where are the old stalwarts like Roddy and Peter?

Jon, I'm sorry that your plans fell apart, I notice that you and Justin are no longer exhibiting at AES, seems a couple companies have pulled out as well, well I hope we get to meet up again sometime in the future.

Cheers

Matt

The Duke is best for me, & Thursday is also good.

Post by: rodabod on May 10, 2010, 12:58:13 PM
The 20th is quite possibly ok for me. Not sure what shift I'm working, but I'll either be finishing 6.30pm, 8.30pm or 10pm. Should be ok.

Hi all,

I haven't been posting too much lately (work is crazy!) but I just booked my flights to the AES last night.  I won't be in until Saturday morning but would love to do lunch/coffee/pints with any forum folks.

See you there! (my first AES in 4 years)

Hey Ruairi,

I'll be there as well, I think we will almost need to do 2 separate get together, this is for Thurs 20th @ The Duke and then lets arrange for one at AES closer to the time once we have a lay of the land, would be great to meet you in person.

Cheers

Matt

So we still on for tomorrow night? At The Duke near Victoria? What time? I have to catch 3 trains and a bus to get there and back so earlier is best for me to maximize the time spent catching up.

Cheers

I'm fairly flexible.

Is anyone on the look-out for any parts by the way? Sales, swaps or freebies. My room is full of stuff.

If there's anything you can think of, list it here; components, valves, iron, capsules, etc.

Post by: matta on May 19, 2010, 04:13:56 PM
Well I got nothing to swap as my workshop is thousands of mile across the ocean, Hah Hah, but good on ya for suggesting it!

So what time should we start getting there? Anyone in London area that may just want to come straight from work? Say 7.00pm? Would prefer not to be the only plonker sitting there, though it wouldn't be a first...

Cheers

Matt

Feels like I've lost my mojo! Well, most of my stuff is on CD these days, so it's not terrible. Not sure where I may have left that box...

I'll be the guy in the 'BLING' Ed Hardy T-shirt I've had to borrow from my 'ultra hip' younger brother... but when you run out of clean clothes, what are your options? Outside of that I look like my profile pic, incase you don't see the rhinestones on the Tshirt... See you guys around 7pm!

Cheers

You wouldn't credit would you !
Came out of Victoria station last night and the Duke of York was 'closed for refurbishment'....

Anyway, we managed to hook up at The Stagedoor.

Great to see you guys.
Always nice to catch up.
