Posted:Strugz: I think the nearest meet to you will be in Brighton, check the spherculism thread, sounds like a goodun too cool. That's where I will end up if the westcountry meet doesn't rouse more interest rolleyes



Mags: Agreed, a whole UK meet would be incredible, especially as the westcountry one probably wouldn't be one of the larger ones, but I doubt the whole UK would be able to make it. Plus there already seem to be others springing up round the country.

The question is- would westcountry poips like a little one of their own or travel a bit to a different (possibly bigger) one?



I was all up for getting a meet together down here but now I'm thinking maybe poips round here would prefer to travel to something bigger, (maybe I would too confused)



Keep it coming! biggrin

Damn! did I realy take that long to reply?

Posted:I'm a westcountry boy meself, but i'll be at the brighton meet.

Big event is scheduled for next summer.

Local meets are more realistic with such a short time to go.

Durbs, come play in brighton, you know it makes sense, any more takers ~ I promise to teach everyone in brighton at least 1 totally new thing.

Anyone for a wibble?

I think you're mistaken, the minimus security prison IS Telford wink

OK I'm so torn between meets, sheffeild has the upper hand currently cuz it's way closer than anywhere else AND Mech is giving me a bed for the night, but I won't get to meet Matt (PPP) or learn a new trick he guaranteeing to teach everyone. Damn this is hard to make up my mind!!

At least I have my fancy dress sorted so thats cool
