The next h2g2 Meet takes place on the 7th July 2001 and will be held in London. Click over to the the RSVP thread to sign up and visit the Oh Good! thread for general chit chat and speculation! So far a grand total of 48 researchers and staff have signed up, although for what exactly still remains a mystery! If you are curious as to their identities, or want to be the first to know the planned activity, then a visit to the Next Community Meet Up page is a must!
If 'The Smoke' is not exactly the easiest place in the world for you to get to, why not consider the Flat Cap and Muffler Club Spring Outing... otherwise known as the Great Northern Meet. It is for anyone interested in beer or coffee and a few laughs... whippets and black puddings optional! The Meet will be held on the 4th August at the Trafford Centre, Manchester; there's bowling, drinking and all sorts of food available.
Times, directions and place to be announced later.
So far 12 h2g2ers are signed up for this meet.
