    Default London 'The Hole' Geek Gathering

    Ladies, Gentlemen and Stevie,

    I feel it is time another trip to The Hole was organised. I can reserve a table at the usual place. They have forgiven us for last time and it didn't cost too much to repair. Bring your own silicone grease. Please advise on your availability...

    Fabulous. I will consult with fellow geeks and we will discuss. News to follow. Don't forget the grease. Can you supply disposable gloves? I would assume between the all of us, this is possible. I will bring ink and micromesh. Don't tell 'em your name Pike!

    In light of Brother Carl's availability, shall we aim for Sunday 2nd June? Noon?

    Thank you Carl.

    Do you think we should revive 'cheapest pen of the month'? Somehow, I think Paul is always going to win but it's fun trying. Yet to speak with Bee on this matter but he would probably be swayed on the basis that Christopher's has reopened and it's only a short stagger from The Hole. My liver is still in shock from the last time but I'm willing to risk it. I will speak with the other member tomorrow, if he doesn't show up here before.

    Obviously, we need to firm up numbers and draw straws on who is bringing the virgin. More details as and when...

    I don't even try to enter CPOM - I'm incapable of ever winning.

    Oh I'm sure fleabay can offer up something.
    PS: Will ask the venue if they can provide more sawdust on the floor to cope with, er, spillage.

    Dear Brother Carl and various other esteemed members:

    It's beginning to look a lot like the June 2nd meet is a goer. We have a small mammal, an old lady, Brother Carl and possibly a Bee (though yet to confirm.) Carl, you can find the virgin this month even though I'm sure that's a tricky one, given your neck of the woods. You'll cope manfully I'm sure. I have been rummaging and seem to have a fair amount of ink to donate (so that I can buy some more.)

    Venue: The Hole
    Time: Noon
    Date: 2nd June (yes, this year.)

    Carl, could you please alert Brother Paul and his lady wife?

    I hope that's all clear...

    Consider it done Dear Lady

    Let's put it this way it would be difficult to find three wise men round here never mind a maiden.

    We could sacrifice a Bic biro (alternatively I'll see if the Tube driver will let me bring a goat on the train).

    Bring the Bic and the goat. As they say in the scouts; be prepared.

    Paul may, or may not, be coming - they have a Charity event on the Saturday and he may still be clearing up.

    I've PM'd a few on FPN and had one definite and one 'can't'.

    Well we will forgive Paul his charity event. Wow, it must be quite a night if they are still clearing up the following day. Good for them. As for the rest of us, it will be fine. Me and my favourite engineer will be there to lower the tone. Now, what news of virgins and goats?

    It's London. Virgins and goats are in short supply.
