OK, how about this for a suggestion. If it's in London, I'll organise it. If it's in the Midlands, would anybody else like to organise it?

Ned mentioned January, and that seems about right to me too. Everybody happy with a weekend in January? Any suggestions which weekend?

If this one happens in London, & it works, maybe somebody else could arrange the next one somewhere in the Midlands?

Any comments? Anybody else intersted in joining us?

I can't do January. My weekend in Knaresborough is already tied up.

Preferably when the weather is warmer. Also remember I can't guarentee I can make it. Right now my travel schedule (work) for next year includes: Stutgart, Syndey, Brasil, Toronto, Mexico City, Singaport and Bangalore so it may be something that just doesn't work out.

I also have to schedule it in between gigs :)

Typical American! :lol: We hardly ever get US musicians here in the winter (certainly not those from the South!). Nothing for most of the year, then all the visiting Americans come over at once from May till September.

Well I'm not sure when is best now. Anyone else have any ideas?

OK, we need to either get this going, or let it die if there's insufficient interest.

Suggestion - a venue in London one weekend in February. Please post here if you will be attending. Please also comment which day is best for you - I would have thought a Saturday afternoon/evening. This should allow people to travel and then return home, or stay over in a hotel, depending on their circumstances and location.

Please also indicate which part of London would be best for you - it will need to be somewhere that is readily accessible by both car and by public transport. When it looked like Ned would attend, I was wondering about getting a room in a hotel (Holiday Inn?) near Heathrow. I'd probably drive there with 3 or 4 guitars and an amp, and stay over so I can enjoy a few drinks in the evening.

However, if we don't have any overseas visitors coming, perhaps somewhere nearer Kings Cross/Euston would be easier for anyone travelling down by train from the North? Please express you preferences here, even if you have posted before.

Or if there are any alternative suggestions, let's have them too.

Hi Tokai Forum Folks!

Newbie (and long time lurker) Mole Man here. I would be up for the London meet. Hopefully I will have a Tokai ES-130 to bring along by February.

Best regards,
Mole Man
