I can give a fairly brief one...
Early 00's there was a meet at a curry house in alsager... not too
sure what went on, but simon (who is inactive on the lug lately),
martin, dave the founder, richard smedley
2006 jan - meet in simon's house... curry night, very much a social...
nothing really came of it
I arranged a meet in stafford... curry again, then some time spent in
whetherspoons... not much happened there, but it was more of a "do we
actually want to achieve anything" situation again
Then i got too busy to be involved... lost touch with meets but i
believe there was a meet at keele, possibly a couple... anyone shed
any more on what happened there? if anything was achieved?...
That's very brief... but basically there's nobody in charge (sorry
dave, it's gotta be said...)
Think thats about right?
I'd say that's pretty much about right. I tried to come to one of the
Keele meets but got totally lost and spent about an hour aimlessly
driving round. This was pre sat' nav' days but I did have an Ordnance
Survey motorists atlas. Bloody useless thing :-(
