    3 months... it's rapidly approaching that time of year again!

    so, I believe "winter in the south" was discussed, and while I feel the urge to shout my usual response to where i'm thinking we should probably see who's up for hosting duties!

    Well, the mixture of "Sweet 16" in the title and talking about going south in the post probably isn't getting us far.

    Yeees.... it has begun... soon, you will be truly one of us.....

    As to venue, I don't really know. Let's just see what southerners express interest and then dump the hosting duties on one of them by force!

    While we are discussing meets.
    Next year I am hoping to attend the trogland meet again.
    However this time I'm thinking we get as many UK and Eu playgrounders there as possible. To that end I am asking who is up for it. And how likely are you to be able to collect the funds needed to join me on this adventure.

    Archie, I'll likely be coming over to the next Troggygroggy meet up in the summer - of course depending on when exactly it is (I plan to work next summer! Argh! ). I'll probably drag my Super Special Troglander Friend with me too.

    I figure that somewhere in the Midlands (or a little south of it) is a good idea - makes for fairly easy travel for people both on the west side and the east side of the country maybe.

    I thought that was very witty.

    So things got in the way of the last one for me. I think I had about eight things on that weekend. London, though! There will be places that can host.

    Interested. Dunno if I could host in Leicester again or not. Depends on how things go the next few months.

    Also not sure what money I'll have, so that's a factor also as to whether I'll be coming or not.


    Gonna say not central London please. Crowds and scary, especially on weekends close to christmas.

    I would definitely be up for Leicester again. I won't offer to organise in Derby again because, as it's close to Christmas, there's a distinct possibility that we could be in Italy. If we want options for next summer, Derby will definitely be on the table again.

    Oh sweet Christ do not give me this sort of responsibility! Please no. Also I'll probably be in Aberdeen by then.

    With that said, I'm definitely interested in this. As we're all but certainly going South, if it could be near an airport that has flights from Aberdeen that would be great as train costs are literally horrible.

    I think everywhere counts as South for you
    ..
    I can confirm East Midlands has connections with Aberdeen, because I checked one of the multiple times I wanted to organise a holiday in Scotland (and never managed to, for one reason or the other).

    Shetland doesn't! And it's actually a really nice place too

    Somewhere around there or another airport that links to Aberdeen would be great. Other than that, no real preference

    I'm definitely not going to be able to make anything before January- simply because I've booked all of this year's holiday already to avoid getting caught in the metaphorical scrum at work. I'll be keeping an eye on this thread in case you choose to hold the next meet the other side of new years, but if you opt for sooner rather than later, my choice on attendance has been made for me.
