    Manchester Autumn GTG anyone?

    Mutterings have started.

    With Kirk and myself willing to organise, I think we can start with "who fancies it?" rather than "When and where?".

    The last venue, the first at the venue, seemed very well received; central for pubic transport and parking adjacent. Kirk wouldhave to sound them out.

    Or we could revert to a previous one.

    Post on here if you are up for it, together with preferred days/dates/venue (not forgetting that we don't divulge its identity nor location for security reasons).

    So come on chaps - who is up for it? Easy to access by train from Yorks/Derbys/Lancs/Cheshire, so a wide field.

    I can't do Sept 22; Oct 5/6; Oct 12; Oct 19. Not bothered about venue; the last was fine, the previous was fine, others may be available.

    Hi Alec,

    Last venue was fine, any time Oct onwards for me is good.

    Cheers

    Last venue was very good and discrete.

    Bring it on!

    I vote for the last (new) venue, but it will have to be a Sunday....

    It will be good to catch up again Gents.

    Walkerwek - ďmini GTGĒ this Friday so I can get my baby back?

    Looks like it's gonna be a landslide for the "new" venue - can you have a word Kirk?

    I can't do Saturday the 5th but I'm in any other day, I have a friend who's well into his watches who I may drag along, he works in the Caribbean and keeps missing them.

    Met Kirk the other night re some sunglasses but finished up talking watches!

    Sounds like the MCR GTC is a good do so happy to partake - maybe a Sunday towards the end of Oct or one in early Nov would be good?

    Sunday Oct 13 is the only date that seems to work for all of us (so far). Pencil it in.

    Venue has been contacted and is tbc.

    Hopefully Walkerwek can find the venue this time. And Chris leave the camper van at home!

    Sounds like a good time will be had, I'll see what I'm up to at the last minute...definitely babysitting Fri-Sat.

    ( I have to admit that I've not been on the forum nor worn a watch for a good few months... what's all this rebellion?!?)
