Thanks to Railtraveller for organising the October meet whilst I was sunning myself in Michigan and Wisconsin (yes you read that right - it reached 81 one day!) but now we must turn ourselves to more important matters: sorting out a date or two so that locals and visitors alike can meet up over a drink break bread, talk and laugh.
So if you are keen to meet up with like minded individuals and families over a drink then please post below with your dates and I'll try to find a date or two that will allow the maximum number of people to attend.
Also, some people have mentioned the possibility of a TALF theatre outing to see Chicago. I have a contact at an agency who could get tickets at competitive prices if we had enough for a group booking so if anyone is truly keen could they make contact by PM with possible dates so we can find out if they could be practical.
