Calling all UK sleuthers out there! I would like to organise a sleuth meet-up in London sometime over the weekend of 20-21 September 2008.

Now, this is in NO way supposed to be a Sleuth Con, I'm not trying to steal Rhiemma's great idea, it's more like a Sleuth hey-I-was-in-the-neighbourhood-so-why-don't-we-have-a-drink.

Details to be worked out. Depending on numbers and interest, the meet-up could include any, all or none of the following: drinks, dinner, lunch, movie, other activity (dunno what, ideas welcome).

The weekend is non-negotiable, however exact date and time are flexible. And if there is high demand for somewhere other than London, I will entertain the idea (mostly by reading the suggestions and laughing :P)

Anyone in the UK interested? Ok, even Europe sleuthers are invited. Oh alright then, all sleuthers all over the world are invited too. (Don't go calling me country-ist). Just don't expect any subsidies, the most you'll get from me is one round ;)

Sleuth meet-up, London, weekend of 20-21 Sept.

Interested? Post here or PM me.

Thanks Phoenix and Auntie! And thanks to everyone else who's shown interest even if it's a tad far for you :D

The final details are as follows...
meeting at the Shakespeare (?) pub inside the barriers in Birmingham New Street Station at 12 noon. We'll go somewhere for lunch and drinks for a few hours and probably leave about 4.30ish.

Cordelia and Ms Helen, I hope you can make it too! PM me about your plans, if you are coming I'll let you know my phone number.

No that's not a chat up line. Well... if it works then I might turn it into one.

I've already PM'd TK so I'll break the bad news to the rest of you. Thanks to short staffing I'm not going to get the time off blah blah. Needless to say I'm not too happy with the company I work for at the moment lol.

I was looking forward to the meet up and I'm sure it'll be a blast I'm just sorry I can't be there :(

Take lots of pictures for me though hehe :)

You need to have a cute gimmick so you all know each other if you're meeting in a square. Perhaps you each wear or carry a red carnation. Something mysterious like that. Just a suggestion.

Can't wait to see the pictures.

you mean you're not all sticking with the noir theme and dressing 1920-1950ish?

I thought about asking Ben to donate some of those "cute" sleuth t-shirts. Really, I did. But then I decided I'd just write "Sleuth" on my mobile phone and wave it about ;)

And too bad you can't come Ms Helen, you're gonna miss a GREAT time! :D
