: Jocks team up 45th anniversary?
: Proudhuff 24 November, 2021, 11:58:17 AM


Can I be the first to say I should be able to make this...how about an exciting and different locale?

Is this in February? I'll say yes now and look forward to cancelling nearer the time.

I'm determined to come! Can we just book in the 5th now?

So we've narrowed it down to February 2022 and somewhere in Scotland, good start for us!
Where's Commando Forces sly comment?  ;)

Hey, I was suggesting the 5th. That's good progress for us, right?

But you'll all be down in Sheffield celebrating my 50th on 5th Feb... won't you... I mean you have got the surprised party planned... right...

If you have the team-up in the USA then I'll definitely cancel at the last moment.

5th Feb should be OK, 5th March not so much as it's the wife's birthday weekend.
: Re: Jocks team up 45th anniversary?
: Tiplodocus 27 November, 2021, 06:08:16 PM
I imagine 5th Feb is good for me.

Looks like we have a plan...
Now where?
: Re: Jocks team up 45th anniversary?
: Proudhuff 01 December, 2021, 10:24:02 AM
Can I suggest Edinburgh? Perhaps around Haymarket for trains.
: Re: Jocks team up 45th anniversary?
: The Enigmatic Dr X 01 December, 2021, 01:45:29 PM
Happy with that, but would then prefer an early (ish) start - 3 or 4pm?

(Or, y'know, 11am...)

Should we invite those pesky creative types? Would they be welcome?  Would they come? would that be messy?

These questions and many others will be answered on next week's episode of Soap

Well once we have the date, the time and venue, on a public forum it's an open invitation really. So if they want to risk finding themselves alone in a pub on 5th February going "Bastards!", then happy to have them.

So taking the bull by the horn...

Haymarket Bar Edinburgh, 2.30pm on Saturday 5th Feb 2022, the Prog birthday swally! business meeting (not a party)

Nice and handy for trains and buses, and they do scran if you like that sort of thing.

Hands up who can make it? (Nicola allowing).

 It may still get cancelled because it's likely to be a gathering of 500 or more Squaxx.
: Re: Jocks team up 45th anniversary?
: Trooper McFad 22 December, 2021, 06:34:29 PM
Definitely more than 3 households per day table

As long as there's cheese and wine, it counts as work. If anyone says otherwise, tell 'em to call Dominic Raab.

Cancelled!

or moved to another date/place/time?

The Engerland vs Scotland Rugby Six Nations is on at Murrayfield that afternoon. So Haymarket will be a midden, the pubs heaving and and the whole of Edinburgh infested with the worst kind of people... there will also be some English fans here too.

if it was, you chaps would have to go on without me, as my shifts have all changed, thanks covid.

Just leave the Bren and a hand grenade with me I'll be fine.

Scotland v England is on at Murrayfield on the 5th. I'd strongly advise against meeting at Haymarket!

I should have read the whole thread.

I have two ideas:

VARIETY BAR from 1600 on Saturday 5th - plenty of nosh places round about and not too much of a stroll from Forbidden Planet.

Or

MONO from 1600 on Saturday 5th. Just around the corner from A1 comics and that game shop (plus that Military Surplus stuff that has a little too much German WW2 stuff ft or me to feel comfortable).

You've noticed that too, huh?  Yes, Not. At. All. Worrying.

Mono scores bonus points for being in the area that was recently turned into Gotham City for the Batgirl filming.  (And then lots of minus points for being an up-its-arse vegan place.)

This still on?

Which venue suits (I'm more for Variety but that's only because it's a shorter walk for me and it's no bother for either, really)?

When? 2pm? 3pm?
: Re: Jocks team up 45th anniversary?

Looking like the Mono at 1600 hours...

Well that was jolly good fun.

Let's do it again.

But I think an Edinburgh venue for next time.
: Re: Jocks team up 45th anniversary?
: Fungus 06 February, 2022, 12:03:19 AM
Much enjoyment 😎
Haven’t looked on here since pre-pandemic times but a most excellent catch-up today in my opinion.
Approaching normal times 🤩

I vote Edinburgh for the next one too…
