    Default UK get together!

    This has rumbled around the 'Newbies' section for quite a while now and needed either pushed or buried. It's getting pushed!

    The title explains all, the venue was thought best to be midlands area - maybe Castle Donington, very handy for East Midlands airport (Ryanair return from Inverness 30 on a good day!). Time yet to be decided but probably best into summer and venue to be found. I have offered to locate a venue, get prices and do a fair bit of the organising - it's in my interest because I have things I want to learn apart from socialising of course! And I like distractions from my real work...

    What is needed is an idea of who would be interested but also importantly a few offers of demos etc. - a honing workshop, collections, perhaps a couple of pics of members favourite razors to put on a powerpoint and we can all relate why it's the best! Restoration basics etc. From this angle we really need senior members willing to come along and impart their knowledge. Just a couple of seniors jumping on the wagon would really help to get it going.

    So - offers of 'on the day' wee demos please if poss. An indication of support otherwise and after, that if it seems like a go-er, I can pin down either a hall or hotel etc and get prices and dates in order to finalise through a poll. Evening entertainment for overnighters will obviously be crucial and no expense (time) will be spared in finding the best pubs and the best grub to round it off.

    cheers
    Stephen

    Count me in Stephen, though it will depend on the day and if I can fit work around it.

    Default How about Euro members?

    The Scottish vote is firming up! Just thought that it is probably as cheap for some of our Euro members to jump on a plane to East Midlands. Belgium, Netherlands etc. Now there are a good few old hands just across the water that could show us a few things...any takers?

    Will do for sure. There's bound to be a skatepark around there somewhere

    From what I understand this will most likely take place near the end of the summer.

    If that's the case then I can DEFINATELY combine my vacation and the get-together.

    I'll do a coticule demonstration for those who're interested.

    Count me as interested. In fact consider me as interested in finding out ANYTHING about honing!

    You should know that Alex suggested a 'shave off'. I'll check the Castle Donington British Red Cross group availability!

    Support is rising!
