    North Hampshire GTG March 2020

    A bunch of us are planning on meeting in a pub in north Hampshire (not far from Surrey/Berkshire) on the evening of Thursday March 26th.

    Would anyone be interested in joining us?

    It's a possibility......I might even bring an ex-Frenchman for show and tell.

    That would be great, again work permitting. Thanks for extending the invite.

    Yes, we're definitely having the GTG in Northamptonshire.

    An event where strange men (and possibly women and others of non specific gender) who have met on the internet arrange to meet at a given time and location in order to talk bollox.

    Dear Foxy100

    Please accept this message as formal notification that I plan to attend the TZ-UK Giant Tail Gathering in North Koreashire at the venue and on the date to be notified.

    Your sincerely, PhilipK Esq.

    [E&OE. Terms & conditions may apply. Events outside my control - such as a better offer on the night, or an outbreak of Coronavirus in the pub - may render this acceptance null and void. Not valid where prohibited by law]

    P.S If you can persuade one of those really southerly attendees to give us a lift, that would be even better!

    I was hoping we'd have shaken off this pandemic by now and a bunch of us would be heading to a pub somewhere in North Hampshire tonight but sadly we'll have to wait until Easter at the latest, assuming Trump is right. And he always is. So that's alright then.

    Can't we do a virtual one? Somebody must have Zoom.

    At least you wouldn't have to sit next to undesirables.

    Shall we arrange it for next week? I'm still recovering from a light, er, virus, and can't get out before Wednesday to stock up on beer.

    How about Tuesday? I think it would be useful to know whether it's worth capping the numbers, i.e. at what point does it become unmanageable. I know Zoom has the possibility of having breakout rooms but at some point that might start resembling a Berlin fetish club. I'm also conscious that I'm not a core Hampshire member though I've gatecrashed occasionally - quite happy for others more deserving to get priority.

    Bearing in mind you've met some of the Hampshire members, remember you need to be just drunk enough to cope but not so drunk you fall over, dribbling.

    Tuesday works for me.
