I guess we do need an official announcement here, though Cy has been doing a good job of talking about it here anyhow!

So yeah, we're now only 6 weeks away from WorldPride! It should be the largest international meeting in our history. We have a couple of cool posters - one to advertise the overall asexy meetup (the "Asexual World Festival") and one on our conference, which will be on Sat 28 June. First here is the website for the conference and the registration form.

Please let me know if you are thinking of coming and need help with travel and accommodation. There are some people who are carpooling and/or sharing an apartment to save costs. I'll do what I can to help!

See you all there I hope!

I'm still recovering from it tbh! And catching up with work-work, since I was away so long. But yeah I'll post something here eventually.

Btw PiF and Ciri: London meet sometime? I'm next in London for the weekend after next (26-27 July). Also looking further ahead it'd be good to go to the firework display on the Thames again; I really enjoyed that last year.

Fireworks off the Internet sounds cool. Perhaps at the next meet we could do something like... Dunno... Bowling.... Laser tag etc

Good to see you had a great time and your back safely

Sounds like a plan. Are you around (in reach of London) the 26-27 July weekend? Cy? Any places you'd recommend we book? I'll start a thread on AVEN if that weekend is good.

LAZERTAGLAZERTAGLAZERTAG

Either day that weekend is good for me. Just tell me which so I can make sure I'm not starting my new job then (Saturday is probably the best bet).

I can make what ever date works for the majority...prob best to have an idea of where you want to meet then do a search for bowling alleys or lazer tag places.

ciri..you just want to shoot people :lol:

Here is the original post by Mr. No.

Let's have a London meet on the 26th. I know that there are a couple of people who want to do a meet on that day already.

In terms of things to do... I propose going to the Walthamstow Garden Party, which is basically a free afternoon of "music, theatre, arts & crafts, food and family activity in Walthamstows beautiful Lloyd Park". I'm particularly interested to see the Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain's set at 5pm. In case you are not familiar with their work, here is a typical example:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1EmxbbAoDq4

So my suggestion is this: we meet somewhere in central London shortly before lunchtime, and travel up to Walthamstow together; it's in Zone 3 and about 15 minutes by a direct train from Liverpool Street or half an hour on the Victoria line. There we can sample the various food offerings and generally do whatever for the rest of the afternoon.

Other ideas are of course welcome! :)

Thoughts? Preferred activities out of those mentioned (or others)? It'd be good to get a definite plan nailed down.

^ *for once.

Fixed that for you.

Lazer tag.

Mic-nic. In this modern version of the 'picnic', we kidnap Michael, throw him in the river then eat his rich, juicy carcass.

Hmph seems Lazer Tag is out. We could return to Mr No's plan (as quoted above)?

Anyway the main plan is to meet under the clock at Waterloo station at 12pm. See you all there!

Oh yeah and the next meet on Sunday 18 August with a certain former AVEN Mod who is visiting from Canada. I hope y'all can make that one too!

I'm going to have to be a wet lettuce and cry off...I will also advise people against having children

It seems "da yoofs" emergencies should be everyones and children think parents are part of the parenting team when it comes to their own children.

I did try explaining I had done my time as a parent and as she had now made a deliberate choice to have them it was her choice and not my life sentence

apparently her making choices and then me having to face the consequences of them is all "my fault for bringing her into this world"

It may take some time but I am looking forward to her children, my grand children ....pulling the same one on her...that wry smile is on the parking block

so Apologies for not being able to attend this coming weekend but 18th of August is a definate..again humble apologies

Nuuu.

If you have to look after your grandchild for the day, why not bring them along? Hmm it just occurred to me they might be too young to bring easily if they're still in a pram...

Apologies Michael as I would have liked to have come
