The Royal h2g2 Geographical Entry Society - The Members' Bar

23 Conversations

Welcome to the Members' Bar. This is the Royal h2g2 Geographical Entry Society's place for the membership to hang out, talk about anything vaguely germane, and also look at the various useful things posted up, including the geographical areas about which our members have some specialist knowledge.

The Royal1 h2g2 Geographical Entry Society - By Land, By Sea, By Air

By Land, By Sea, By Air

So, have a look around, pull up a large, comfortable leather armchair, enjoy the warmth from the blazing log fire and make yourself at home. If you'd like to tell us which places you've got specialist knowledge about, or what geographical entries you're working on at the moment, or to ask for help, or just have a bit of chat - that's what the threads at the bottom of the page are for. Or you could always pick up the playing cards and have a game of non-Bus Stop Pontoon.

1That's 'royal' in the sense of 'of superior size, magnitude, or quality', of course - we don't have a Royal charter from any King or Queen and we're probably too disreputable to accept one if it were offered...
