Great pictures of you all. It's very nice to see you in the picture during your meetings.
Some of you already helped me a lot for my travel questions and with general tips.
They are much appreciated!

It would be nice to meet some of you sometimes to get in touch with people who I can share my memories and talk about the things we like abotu London... And even have a nice time together.
Although I don't know anyone of you personally - I kind of feel connected to the people I already have *spoken* to...

Thanks for your very warm welcome... ;)

Just wondering if you have decided on a place and time for the meeting as we have to meet up with another friend on the Sunday. She may even be able to come to lunch with us (another possible VT recruit). Just trying to plan things as we leave for London on Thursday :-)

    Hello there folks, sorry it is a bit less organised than usual. Sarah is in South America and Iam in Northern Ireland at present so it is all a bit of long-distance communication at the minute. Still finalising details but to allow you to plan provisionally, it will be for a lunch so probably meet in a pub about midday and lunch about one, then it is very much play it by ear dependent on what people want to do and, it being UK, the weather! To allow you to plan transport we will be in the area of Primrose Hill / Regents Park, probably the St. John's Wood side. There are decent public transport links. We are looking forward to meeting you and your friend, if she can make it. fergy p.p. London Calling.

We hope to be at the 18 Nov Sunday lunch meeting (as long as they have a veggie option) as we happen to be in London that weekend :-)

    No problem, whatever we decide on for the meal will definitely have a decent veggie option. It will be great to see you.

    That's great - we will confirm for definate nearer the time as it will depend where and what time the meal will be - as we also have to meet up with another person in London.

Hi Fergy, Sarah and Lesley, Thanks so much for organising a brilliant London Treasure Hunt (and evening meals). The route was very informative, I learned lots and enjoyed the company too. Sunday's jaunt to the docklands was a revelation and most enjoyable. Well done for arranging perfect weather on Saturday and Sunday! Congrats to the winning team, roll on next year!

    Annemarie, thznk you so much for your kind comments, they are much appreciated. It was great to see you again and we are so glad you could make it. there is no point in us doing these things if people don't come, and it was our wonderful attendees who made it a great weekend. I know we all enjoyed it. <br><br>Fergy,<br>p.p. London-Calling.

Thanks for everything fellas, we had a lovely time with some lovely people. That was a great Hunt, with plenty of intrigue and cunningly laid out by friend Fergy. The four of us had some great laughs going round. Sorry we had to pull out of the Sat evening meal. Keep up the good work and will see you soon.

    Of course we'l be your friend officially as if we weren't in reality anyway. Really glad you enjoyed it. Wr could theoretically arrange the best VT meet ever but it is absolutely pointless if nobody turns up. It was all our wonderful attendees that really made it. Thanks for taking the time to join us and hopefully we will meet again soon.<br><br>fergy<br>p.p. London-Calling.
