    Hi Craven ( Paul ) I was getting worried about you!!! Have'nt seen or heard from you for ages!!!

    Ref Meet-up shin-dig , Harry Hawk had the idea of a Beachstyle forage and BBQ Session until the wee hours , which probably translates as go down to the beach, mooch around until someone suggests a drink or two then sit around a fire , spinning up some kebabs and watching the Sun take a burning header into the green-blue horizon.

    So anyone up for that??

    Trying to sort a date out, do want to go too soon ( so that as many peeps as possible can make it ) and also dont want to go too distant as it seems so far off ( then no-ones pays constant attention )

    I've looked it up and apparently the 21st Of June ( Monday ) is the Longest day so could do the 19th/20th or is that too far off???????

    Ideas for dates and venues appreciated if interested.

    Yep , I'm all up for going to where offers the best for all of us beit North Coast/South coast , Devon Cornwall etc

    Wonder if we would get 'bumped' by the local police if our numbers were in excess of a certain amount?

    only if you have amplified music with a predominately repetitive beat

    maggie was very careful not to offend the sensibilities of anyone other than those that liked a bit of dance music

    well to be fair, she didn't give a damn about not just cheesey quavers but just about anyone who didn't have a hyphenated name and worked in the city

    ;)

    I too am off to Glasto the Wednesday after 21st so that's out for me too. Now I'm over 40, been going for 20+years and it's the 40th anniversary Glasto, I shall make it my last one......So I'm going to go out with a bang:dancer::vio::240::stretcher:

    It was Bernie's (bhoffman) original idea about a beach meet:beerchug:

    Some nice beaches your way TeeDee, the trek down to Western beach is a good one, not so sure about coming back up with a hang-over though:lmao:

    Somewhere central for all Westcountry 'crafters? Do we need plenty of rock pools? All nighter? Suggestions?
