It's been a while...are all you Yorkshire folk ready for another get together? I am!
Let's meet at the Rook and Gaskill, 6.30, first week in December. Hope to see you all there!

And hey, lookie, I made a Doodle to help us decide on a date! [UPDATE: poll closed now that date is decided, thanks!]

I was just thinking the other day that we were due another. I'm as game as ever but my availability isn't great - have put it in the doodle (so to speak).

Yay indeed. Although boo for being referred to as "Yorkshire folk".

D'oh! Is "Yorkshire folk" a no-no?
posted by iamkimiam at 3:19 PM on November 17, 2010

Only for those of us not from Yorkshire. ;)

I'm only a Plastic Manc, originally from Yorkshire, so 'Yorkshire folk' is fine by me.

Put me down as a positively maybe, I have to check with her ladyship...

So days I'm available. I'll see if I can make it.

Not sure what I meant to say there. "So"???
Anyway - I can do Thursday or Sunday.
posted by seanyboy at 4:38 AM on November 19, 2010

YAY everybody! Let's do Thursday as that seems to work for (almost) everybody. See you then!

Also, doodle is done doodled.

Thursday is just going to be too busy weekend would have been possible, see everyone next time.

Well - weather, trains & chest permitting, I'll still be there. It may be a subdued affair though.
posted by seanyboy at 3:50 AM on December 1, 2010

Sorry, but a combination of too much work and a disinclination to drive across the country in the snow means I almost certainly won't be coming. Damn. I would have liked to be there. I bet York looks fantastic in the snow. Maybe I will make it. I don't know. But it's doubtful.

Whee, it's today!

[This is a pointless comment for the Recenty Activity bump!]

I hope I see you later!

Also, I understand if blizzardy conditions keep everybody on lockdown. :( We'll just have to do another meetup soon. And then another... And another...

(Because I'm determined to make York some weird anomaly of MeFi hotspotness.)
posted by iamkimiam at 1:13 AM on December 2, 2010

The trains look okay today so unless the snow gets crazy again, I should still be able to make it.
posted by thoughtless at 2:07 AM on December 2, 2010

Same here. See you later!
posted by Electric Dragon at 3:01 AM on December 2, 2010

There is snow due here about three, so I'll know more at 4:00pm.
posted by seanyboy at 5:27 AM on December 2, 2010

Bah. Train times are too wacky. I can get there for 8, but I have to leave at nine. Sorry peeps. Hopefully catch you at the next one.

Bah! Damn trains.

However, mine seem fine still, and #uksnow LS6 0/10, so I shall be setting off in a few minutes (after putting on every warm garment I own) and should get there just after 6.30 I reckon.

I however am already in York and ensconced in a very nice warm hotel room.
posted by Electric Dragon at 9:24 AM on December 2, 2010

Sorry peeps, but it turned out not to be possible for me. Hope you had a good time. I'll set about organising a Manchester meetup in January. Can't let any Yorkian upstarts take the Northern UK MeFi mantle from my beloved burg!

A small but perfectly formed MeFiMeet. Nice to see both iamkimiam and thoughtless. Hopefully there will be a better turnout in less Arctic weather.
posted by Electric Dragon at 3:44 PM on December 2, 2010

Indeed, it was perfect (and the pies divvied up quite perfectly between the three of us)!
