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.

Yoyo we're waiting for you... we're just gonna have a test meet while we wait :D

And yeah, I think I'll just root around in the bottom of my cupboard for that long black raincoat and black fedora and black elbow gloves, and where on earth did I store that red carnation I had? I hope that it's drizzling and there is a suitably dim lamp post outside the station to lean against. Perhaps I should take up smoking too. Hrmm....

;)

Beware of notes mysteriously showing up in your pocket!!

No notes are needed, people will just randomly walk up to you and just guess that you are a detective! ;-)

Watch your back...always watch your back. Like an owl but without moving your head. Those arch villians would love to catch you in London with your guard down. Look suave and be cool.

Maybe you guys should all carry revolvers in case an evil organization just happens to be there.

Birmingham is my town so if you'd like any hints/tips about where to go for good food/good beer or whatever, feel free to ask.

Which day are you meeting, Saturday or Sunday?

I would remove yourselves from New Street station as fast as possible, it doesn't have much going for it, although by 2015 it will look like an alien greenhouse according to blueprints released this week. At least it can't be any worse than now. I hope.

Carry revolvers, at New Street Station? There are certainly a few shifty looking types hanging around (mostly in the Shakespeare!) but I think revolvers are possibly best left in underwear drawers!
