Okay, given the geographic divergence in the UK, I propose to hold a meet up in the North East on Tuesday 27th August, and a meetup in Scotland (either Glasgow or Edinburgh) the following week on the 4th September.
If someone cares to organise a meet up in the South for around this time, I will help out where I can, even though I will not be able to get there to attend (i.e. I'll book a venue and put a certain amount "behind the bar" so to speak). Oh, and there will be a spot prize at the North East event, courtesy of Sean.
I need numbers now - who can make it to these events.
I'm afraid I will be in Turkey on them dates so won't be able to make any but can you please make sure plenty of photographs are taken and uploaded for us all to see(and I mean publish ALL of them even the inevitable embarrassing ones towards the end of the night). Out of interest why the Tuesday I would have thought that the Bank Holiday Monday or even the Sunday would be better as it will allow more people to come as they won't need to worry about work the next day.
Especially gutted about missing the NE one as I'm sure you will show us a good time there.
Sorry I couldn't make it. I was a lot closer to Newcastle than I usually am but unfortunately up to my eyes in the new contract and stretched to the limit financially until it starts paying out. This is the first time I've been on CP in weeks. I hope you had a reasonable turnout and an unreasonable amount of fun.
When things are a little less mad and I'm not living half my life on the M1 I'll be back on a more regular basis.

I'll try and drop in. Was waiting to answer as currently in the middle of a house purchase (moving to Durham - yay!) and didn't know what was happening.
Might need to arrange with the missus for babysitting duties. I think I'll do the dishes when I get in to butter her up..
Any thoughts/possibilities for a venue?
Currently I am big Keith in Hebburn.[^].
I doubt we'll get shifted by the 27th so I'll still be on Tyneside and Metro-capable. Given there are only three people in the frame, the snug at the Crown Posada would be an ample venue .
Across the Colorado River from Bullhead City, AZ - a destination many members have already visited - Laughlin offers 7 casinos, each with multiple dining and drinking venues, two theatres, a bowling alley, and dirt cheap rooms. If the season is right, there are also watercraft rentals and beaches for idling away the hours, and boat tours of the River. If there's sufficient interest, and we can settle on an appropriate date, I'll see what can be arranged in the way of a meeting room and rubber chicken banquet. Otherwise, we can just hang at the microbrewery and keep the Keno runners running...
Let's see, 10 million shots, at Happy Hour prices of about $1.50 each, comes to $15 million USD, or $22.7 million CND. Or you could just let everyone get their own; as long as one is gambling, they bring the drinks for free.
I am trying to arrange a meetup in Bangladesh in August (depending upon the availability of the members) as there is no such event in our country.

Venue and time will be decided later.
