Posted:6 people there, was most enjoyable!

Okay - www.enjoypoi.co.uk appears to work for everyone except those people who connect via ntl - any chance you can make a complaint to ntl if this applies to you :o)

As for regular meet ups. The plan is for the 2nd weekend of every month - would this suit most people? The next question is would you prefer the Saturday or the Sunday? Vixen - when is it you are working? is it just the Saturdays? As for a time, I guess about half our before sunset roughly - we could confirm times just before each meet if that was okay with everyone?
