South Wales meeting

Postby margaret » Sun Jun 22, 2003 1:17 am

Many thanks to Wendy (Altinkum) and John the Shorts for organising the social event of Friday 20th June in Port Talbot. A pleasant evening was enjoyed by those of us who were able to attend and meet each other in person for the first, and hopefully, not the last time. Wendy particularly worked very hard to produce posters etc. and provided food for us all.

thanks again

A small select gathering, no doubt because we live so far apart. As well as myself there was Altinkum, JTS, Linmag and Byron and some local fans from the Port Talbot area.

A photo is available if any of those who were present would like it sent to them as an attachment. It will not be for public viewing, to respect the privacy of anyone who doesn't like having their photo taken. Please send me a private message with an actual email address if you are interested.

I think the photos should contain a health warning as I may appear in them. :P :lol:

Margaret there is no need of any thanks I am just glad you enjoyed the evening, I am also grateful to those of you who attended. Thanks Margaret for putting me on to the book site, 2 books should be on their way to me, I was able to order the "God is alive,magic is afoot" also a book called "Dance me to the music". It was really nice meeting you all.

p,

If you look back to my earlier message you will see that the part about the group photo was addressed to those who were present, not to all and sundry. Please try reading it again.

ps, I see you must have already done so as you have now deleted your comment.

Can I thank all of you for making the evening an enjoyable occasion. The preparation was appreciated and altinkum 'did us proud,' as we say in this neck of the woods. We all had a chance to sit and chat and get to know one another, which would not have been possible with a large gathering. Many thanks to one and all. Byron 'sends his regards' and looks forward to the next time. :)

Thanks, Margaret ~ It sounds like just the right group size to me. Intimate in size, comfortable with surroundings, friendly in attitude. It sounds like you folks had a wonderful time.

It was indeed a wonderful evening, and I was very sorry to have to leave early because of the long drive home. Thanks again to Wendy and John for organising it.

John, I haven't had a chance to look for The Bed Sitting Room yet, but rest assured that I will tri-double my endeavours and I will not be found wanting. Only ever so slightly, desiring. :roll:
Thanks for meeting us all at the designated watering hole. I like your idea about the moveable feast and pm's can be despatched to those concerned when we all decide to partake of the golden libation once again. (That bit sounds daft coming from one who doesn't drink except when there's a Preston Guild. But I know I'm daft already, so I'm maintaining my consistency. Somewhat reminiscent of sloppie porridge, Quaker Oats Variety) :?
Say hello to Paul for me as well. By for now. Byron.
(I wonder if 'anyone' will find fault with this message ?)

Byron

If you have no joy I can forward my copy to you or I can try scanning it and sending you a pdf (I would prefer sending the book) just let me know.

I will pass on your regards to Paul when I see him later in the week at the cricket. (He doesn't like the 1 day stuff but, as with Leonard, I take what enjoyment I can when I can)

Linmag

There's no thanks due to me Wendy did all the work while I drank all the beer. I hope the drive back didn't take you as long as the drive there (I also hope you didn't upset your daughter wasn't too upset when you missed her calls)

Margaret

I still think the photo's need a health warning, even if the circulation is limited to only those that have seen me.


Altinkum

What a marvellous job you done in organising things. You made sure that the night went wonderfully, and what a wonderful thought in providing catering (even if so few of us partook)

JTS (And yes I'm thanking everybody but I'm not a sycophant :wink: )

JTS I've just been into abebooks and bookbrain looking under, the title , spike's name and John Antrobus who worked on it with him, There are 6 souvenir programmes of the show around the UK but that is all. You have a rare item which I would not entrust to HM Postal Services, therefore I shall wait until we meet again (Peter Cook and Dudley Moore suddenly got in here!) and I will continue to trawl the depths of the international net-thingie. Hold fast cleric and keep your powder dry. Any other matters concerning the soiree (past and future) can be discussed by private message. :wink:
