    Well, I know I'm a probable so it makes no difference... but unless flooding closes the line or I'm ill, I am definitely going to be in Worcester. (There's something else I want to do earlier that day.) The weather forecast actually looks a bit better than it's been for a while, so hooves crossed the trains should be okay. :)

    Edit: I'll try to remember to do my usual Twitter reminder tomorrow.

    And another possible is @Ursa, at least for the end of the meet:



    Decision taken as far as I'm concerned. I will be coming to Bolero's at or a little before 1pm. Absolutely 100% barring illness/blocked railways, hence my definite "is going ahead" in the tweet. So there will definitely be someone there for folks to talk to! :)

    Jolly good, thanks for being our Twitter ambassador!

    I should be there by 1:30 but unfortunately I'll likely leave before Ursa arrives, I shall bequeath him my chair (@;

    Heya Everypony, I won't be able to make it this time as I'm going to be in Manchester for a gig. Have a great meet and I'll see you all at the next one.

    I’m also not going to make this one. So likewise I hope that those who do have a nice time.

    I shall see you guys in the afternoon. The good news is that I managed to finish the final season this week, including the three-part finale. So for those who want to discuss Season 9 without fear of spoiling are free to do so.

    With the roads now opening (ta muchly to @Loganberry for the traffic reports on twitter) I'm going to make an attempt to make it in via my normal means.

    I've had a couple of unexpected errands dropped on me so I'm likely to be a little late but fingers crossed, as long as I don't get swept away in a flash-flood, I should be there.

    Just posted a photo of the steam train over on the "Trains!" thread.

    For @Pigasus and anyone else who may be interested, we had a "shadow" game of Chase the Ace (using my backup pack) late on. The result was: 1st @Dodj, 2nd @Ialyrn Aeloria and 3rd @Ursa -- I was fourth. :p

    Thank you to everyone for a very fun meet today! :)

    Quick PSA: because of the leap day there are five Saturdays in February, this means there's a three week gap between the last meet and next one on the 14th of March

    That reminds me... the second Saturday in April this year is Easter Saturday, so we may need to tweak the dates then as well. (The following weekend is a railway event I plan to attend, so I'm not sure I'll make that one whenever it is, but I'll see what you and others do when the time comes. :) )

    Fun fact: February only has five Saturdays once every 28 years.

    We'd better remember that when planning our meets in 2048, then! :D

    Hi everyone. I apologise to all of you for this, especially the short notice, but... is anyone interested in an extra small meetup this Saturday (7th)? Wouldn't count as an official meet of course, though Bolero's as usual.

    I have personal reasons for possibly not being able to make the planned meet on the 14th, hence my wondering.

    I know some of you have existing commitments this weekend, so I'm not really expecting this to have a high chance of being possible. Just thought I'd ask. :)

    Edit: I'll only go ahead if there are a few people who say they want to by tomorrow evening. Not fair to ask folks to decide on Saturday morning. Don't worry about me, if it doesn't happen I won't be at all upset. Just a wild thought. :)

    Edit 2: This would absolutely not replace the meet on the 14th! If that one happens and if I can make it, I'll be there.

    Three week gaps do feel rather long, so it'd nice to fill in the gap with a bonus meet. I'll have a think tomorrow and decide by the end of the day
