the Gathering of the Loonies (Wincanton Chapter)

Postby rentawitch » Tue Jan 20, 2015 04:47 pm

This is just to say there is a NON-DISCWORLD gathering in Wincanton on weekend of 24/25/26 April.
This is low key and nowt to do with shop (who are aware of it) so please don't ask them questions.
No show, no auction, very much a 'pie and a pint' event. However, in case many people decide to come, a clue as to numbers would be helpful if only to let pubs know re catering. :)

it's just come and sit and chat with friends. Maybe some board games, there could be singing, who knows?
oh and a new member of staff in the Bear wonders why we all drink so much tea and coffee....... Seriously, never notices any of us indulging in alcohol!
ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha.
If you need to contact me direct, im on boardname AT g mail dot com.....

I'm a maybe... I doubt I'd be able to stay more than 1 night if I do make it, but I could possibly drive down for some of it, depending on whether or not my housemate has actually organised his own mini Discworld fan gathering in our house that weekend as he threatened to at Hogswatch!

Well we might see you. :) It's only a general idea of numbers in case we need to warn the pubs re catering?

I would love to come but I'll be in Houston with the family. Tickets already purchased. Now more than ever I'd like to be there.
The world is so full of a number of things, I'm sure we should all be as happy as kings.
