    And back! (A while ago, but I needed to eat and watch today's episode.)

    Big thanks to all for today -- it's always a good sign when you're disappointed you can't stay longer. :) Really enjoyed meeting some new people, too. Shame I had to miss out on Fluxx, but maybe in the future -- I was reading up on the rules on the train and it almost makes sense now. :p No clue when I'll be able to make another one of these, but I'll try to get along at some point.

    Really impressive start to these meets, I thought, too. Hope you're proud for organising it -- you should be. :)

    Just wanted to say thanks for a great day out today! It was lovely to see some new and old faces in a new place. The weather was great and even the rain didn't dampen (ha) our spirit during the improvised 'after meet'.
    Really hope to see at least most of you in a months time (or less)!

    Thank everyone for coming and making this new meetup group a reality! This is really the first social gathering I've ever been host to organise, and it ran with only a few little hiccups here and there. But we live, we learn. Next meet is scheduled to be the 4th of June!

    Well thank you for organising it! I had a really great time and it was it a good day. And we got to enjoy all the extremes of English weather.

    You did a fantastic job, you really did. :D I'm pretty sure your group will go from strength to strength now, and it deserves to. Looking unlikely I'll make the June meet as it's just before I go on holiday, but I'll definitely try to make another one before too long. :)

    Well, since I can't see the pic, that doesn't really help much -- but thanks anyway. :p

    That reminds me, though... UK of E forum mod hat on. There's no need to change that last link, but for future reference, please only link to public photos on the forums. Partly that's so everyone can be included, and partly because we staff need to be able to check they're okay. If you want to show off a photo on a private group, you can either use the "Upload a File" button here or put it on a photo hosting site and link from there. Obviously, please make sure the people in the pic are okay with it being shared publicly before doing that, Thanks! :)

    Okay, UK of E forum mod hat off. It's too warm for me to go wearing hats for very long today -- I don't have Medley's experience or style in such things. :p

    Don't worry about it; all sorted out now. :) (You have a PM, but again it's nothing to worry about!)

    Also, if anyone wants some amusement, check the Google reviews for The Sunbeam. Everything from "worst dining experience of my life" to "service was top notch, food fab". So... :p

    I can probably make the 4th, if there's a good sized crowd going then.

    I think I'm going to be in Munich for this so will miss the next one. Hope for a good one for all in attendance.

    Ah, sorry to hear you can't join this time @CrikeyoRilley , perhaps another time. Have a good time in Munich though!

    So everyone, how many are we expecting to appear for next week's meetup? There's still places to see, games to play, just need to see how many participants will be tagging along.

    And while we're at it, anyone have any ideas to better improve the meetups? I look forward to hearing from you all ^^

    Aye. I will luckily be right in the middle of a three week exam break so I'll make an effort to come. Might have to miss out on the Sunbeam though... My wallet is going to be crying by then!

    I think maybe even I could run to KFC! Not sure whether I'm going, partly due to the general cost as well as the pub meal. Maybe next time.

    Nor me, I'm afraid -- just too much else going on that's draining my wallet this time round, not least that I'm off to Scotland the following week! I'll try to make at least one more this summer/autumn, though. Everyone who is going along, have fun! :)
