London meet up - Saturday 22nd January

Postby verbal gymnastics » Tue Oct 26, 2021 11:19 am

Yes it’s that time again! Couldn’t make the last meet up? Well there’s no excuses this time.

Come one come all to the next meet up on Saturday 22nd January 2022 where we will be able to talk about our Christmas jumpers, (broken) New Year’s Resolutions, receive fabulous gifts (usually CD sets from sulky but who knows, maybe somebody bought us all mystery bags from the US tour :lol: ) and maybe even Elvis’ new album!

It’ll be at 2pm and probably in Spitalfields again although I was delighted that the space booked for 12 people wasn’t big enough.

The last meet up was great fun and it would be great to see some new faces as well as the regular ones.
I might be gone for a while if you need me

There's a strong likelihood I won't be able to make this one, but fingers crossed! x

Are we still planning to go ahead with this or are we going to be careful with the Covid concerns. I’ve had my booster so I feel safe enough ( even with plague ridden Markinson coming :lol: :lol: ) just wondered how everyone else is feeling about meeting up ?

I’ve not given any consideration to postponing or cancelling this. We can take a decision nearer the time.

I certainly hope it happens but there is talk about new restrictions based on rule of 6 etc but fingers etc are crossed. It’s too early to make a decision but things are bound to spike after Christmas.

Focus on happy things for the moment. The meet up is next year (and only a month away!).

It is looking like we may just have a two week circuit break after Christmas or early January. I am still up for it.

As some of you will know I have worked all the way thru it. If I have to go to work I see no reason why I cant socialise too.

I’m loving that the forum meet ups are not male dominated.
The addition of extreme honey, Janice and Clare together with Spirit of Curiosity, Cocktail Murderess and Mrs Sheep has really been beneficial, as well as making me realise I’m way down in the Elvis fandom league :lol:

It’s be great to see other new people coming along.

The meet up will be at the White Swan pub in Aldgate from 1.30pm.

I have booked a spacious private room so I hope that will minimise any risk and concerns you have.

I need to confirm numbers so if you fancy coming please PM me. There are about 12-15 so far and the last one was a blast. This time we will have a new album to talk about and spoken word and Imposters tours to get excited about.

The pub’s website is here https://www.whiteswanaldgate.co.uk

It’d be great to see more new faces and see if the females can outnumber the males. It’s getting close…

Cheers
VG

Great to see a couple of newbies too.

It was a terrific afternoon/evening with loads of unexpected Elvis songs on the jukebox.

The consensus is to arrange another one before the tour starts.
