    Should we paint what is on a face, what is inside it, or what is behind it?

    I would very much like to come along and put a few names to faces, and bring along Mrs Y as well. How does it all work? - previous get togethers of this kind that we have been to via Yacht Clubs or Berth Holders Assoc have all been a little cliquey and we've felt like outsiders. Are newcomers welcome or do you need to be a little more long-standing on the forums before coming along?
    I'm far too old to know everything - I leave that to the kids.

    These meets are all about meeting for first time. OK, a few of us have met before now, but most of the people who went to the first meets no longer post here, so we will all be meeting new people.

    Not posh either, just wear everyday clothes. Some people have even turned up in offshore sailing gear! [img]/forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

    Badges! I love badges [img]/forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] especially the "Dame Edna" type where the writing is big enough for me to SEE it.

    If Pauline has a pink badge - I must have one too [img]/forums/images/graemlins/cool.gif[/img]

    It's unique and original, though I'm sure she will let you touch it,and even wear it for a while!

    If peeps are keen to know how the meet works, here is the old archived thread from 2004, though it doesn't archive all the previous and subsequent threads on the main forums. Was a great meet.

    Probably me, though could have been John, the previous MDL MD [img]/forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img], who used to post on here a great deal, and told peeps they were wrong, in a very gentle way.

    You all have to be very nice to MDL, if we want them to sponsor us. Mike Gates on Thames Forum always seems to get huge amounts of positive feedback, which isn't suprising, as I've met him several times, and a great guy, and has done huge amounts for forum meets.

    Well you did say Englander was included. That would explain why we don't have a 160 count! [img]/forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]
