Frankly I'm amazed, but I timed it well and my wonderful wife has agreed to allow a meeting at my place.

I propose an informal gathering of around a dozen or so folk where we can talk plants, swap stuff etc.

It will obviously be a social event too, so I'm up for doing a big BBQ with plenty of food and drinks etc. Hopefully the British weather will do us proud.... :cool:

More details to follow....

Any feedback or ideas more than welcome.

Sounds good and would love to come. Won't know till nearer the time if I'm able to go as we often go away bank holiday weekends.

I`d love to go, but I have to wash my Hairgrass that night.

Actually, miracle of miracles I am off work that day so I can make it. I could show everybody my war medals I earnt whilst serving in Her Majesty`s Finest.

If there's space George I'd love to crack a few beers round a bbq with you all. And it's a nice drive from Nottingham! Be great to meet and chat with everyone.

Firstly a quick explanation for my lack of activity on here...

I've just moved house, moved job location, have been away from home on courses and have only just sorted internet connection.

Anyway, the meet is still on for the 25th Aug (bank holiday weekend).

For those that are serious about attending, please e-mail [email protected]

I'm limiting guests to around 10 or so. I already have PFK technical writer, Jeremy Gay attending. He's a great guy and has some fascinating stories about the industry.

I would love to come as I am new and have never seen a planted tank in the flesh. The problem is that I don't have a car so would anyone be prepared to pick me up from Leicester?
