    I thought as much. Just when I was looking through the old threads they do all seem to be Manchester. Is that just an annual one that always runs then? I reckon Nottingham would be nice place to hold a meet, but I don't know if any one would go.

    It's just because I always suggest it and people seem to come. I used to do 2 a year but that was getting a bit taxing back when we'd have like 20-30 people turn up. This year was a tiny one tbh. It just depends on the ebb and flow of the forum, lots of people who came to meets 1-2 years ago never come on here anymore and have drifted so probably wouldn't even know the event was on let alone come to it.

    I'm sure if people tried to gain interest or start a meet then they would be able to gauge who would come. You tend to have around 50% drop out, loads of people say they'll come but many if not most drop out along the way or just before due to other things getting in the way.

    Also need to consider location, Manchester has good train connections, it also has a great piercer who people like to visit, good shops, big gardens to meet at, good choice of budget hotels etc

    Yeah, I got the impression that it was quite small this year. I have noticed that the forums were more active when I first joined (even if i wasn't particularly active) than they are now. As you say, ebb and flow.

    I didn't really consider that about Manchester. Then again, getting anywhere other than London by train from where I live at home is a pain (because I have to go through London to go pretty much anywhere) and uni isn't a great deal better. So, for me, personally, ease of access by train isn't really a necessity. Of course, I understand it's still something to consider and try and make as easy for the majority, I was just thinking aloud really.

    Do you reckon a poll would work, to see where most people would like to/could get to?

    Go for it.

    It's easy for me tbh being near Manchester I have good rail links or we can just come on the bike. I'd most likely make it a weekend away as well.

    They used to hold fairly regular Glasgow meets a few years ago but that was when we had quite a few active members through that way, must have been a while ago cause I never went cause they'd always go to the pub and I was underage lol!

    I really do hope there is another meet up in the future when I can afford to, as it would be lovely to meet you all. I love the community on here.

    Would be great if there was a meet some day that was closer to me. Travelling is a major issue for me and I badly want to meet everyone

    Seems like lots of people are interested in a non-Manchester meet up. I'll try and put a poll up some time over the next week and see if we can find one that suits everyone? =)

    Go for it! Like I say, over the past few years so many people say they'd go to meets if they weren't in Manchester or in their home town or wherever but no one ever arranges one!
