    Had an idea (yeah yeah hold the jokes), who would be interested in having a CF meetup. Say booking a venue staying over night and having a good old knee up? :alc

    It would be good to know where everyone is in the county so if you havent already drop your location on the guestmaps

    So what do you think? :biggrin

    I was toying with an idea like this sometime earlier this year, called Certforums Live!
    a mixture of somewhat live advice sessions/cert discussion during the day, followed by a bbq/beers in the evening, however i never got too far with it :)

    Originally i was going for either somewhere central to the country, so that its in the middle for everyone
    or london due to its transit links from all corners (flights from scotland, trains from wherever) due the the drinking I wasnt sure how many people would be driving ;)

    What are your guys thoughts on that? would you just want a booze up / get together social event? or try and tie it in with some kind of cert related event? summer is approaching so the long cool evenings sound like a perfect time for such an event :)

    good to see such positive response, great idea Si!

    Think thats a great idea there phoenix,like the idea of a cert related event followed up by a social gavering.
    With the long summer nights just around the corner its the perfect time of year too.
    As for the location of the event im swaying towards a central to the country one.

    As a notion, I could probably get access to my old schools tech lab for presentations and stuff, as well as access to the carpark and field perhaps for the bbq, ofcoruse that would be if it was held in london, if its held up north im sure someone else can arrange similar facilities? perhaps? hehe

    no bar required
    as long as the school have no probs with alcahol on site (i know the one down here doesnt)
    a few crates of ice, and some cases of drink to throw in them, coupled with a few barbies! good stuff!
    hehe

    I'm still somewhat of a noobie when it comes to CertForums, but I must say that I like the atmosphere here, it seems genuinley friendly and helpful. It's a breath of fresh air compared to allot of other forums.

    Anyway, I like the idea of meeting up and chinnwagging with people about certs and technology etc.. then having a BBQ and beer etc... Wether or not it gets off the ground, or if I'll be able to make it is quite another thing, but sounds like a good idea none the less. :)

    Hey - can we invite all the scammers, spammers and @ssh0les that waste so much of our time here as well ? Could have a "special arena" for them in one corner ? :biggrin
