I would like to say what a brilliant day I had today, I met Jonty, Mazzie, Moogworzel and Bezam. Jonty made a very nice Lasagne. I am now looking at stamps, lol and a quiz. I am looking forward to meeting everyone else :D :D :D
This has been one of the first times I have gone anywhere other than the doctors in a long time and I loved it :D

Jonty, thanks for being an excellent host and cook! Also please extend my thanks to all those who supplied the 'goodies' for the meet, yourself and Mark included. Great to meet and share stories with new faces, and assist in converting them to the stamps :evil: , a tactic which appears to be starting to work in LibrarianK's case (nice to hear you had a good time). I look forward to the next one.

*echoes that*

It was great to see everyone XD To be honest I was bloody nervous when we finally found Jonty's house (hahaha) but myself and my friend had a great time. I want to thank Jonty, Bezam, Moogworzel and everyone else involved in organising the event, I really enjoyed myself, as did my friend :)

Thank you so much for the stamps and the crash course in stamps, though I'm probably thinking I will be blaming you guys later on for the gaping hole in my wallet :P

Jonty's lasagne is to die for!

I did, thanks. However as I approached the metro stop for the Stadium of Light, I realised my cunning plan to avoid the match crowds was fading fast! :lol:

LOL. Yeah, it does get pretty manic here on match day. I liked it when they moved the stadium to the riverside (as before it was nearer to us and we got rubbish thrown over our wall by litterbug matchgoers)', but the only downside is that it's also closer to the city centre and a pain if you're trying to get into town. Especially by car - they shut half the main bridge into the city down. Realistically you might have been better off going to Newcastle :P

The Meeting exceeded all my expectations. I've not had so much fun whilst still fully dressed. The enthusiasm for the Stamps and the Books was amazing. Thanks to everyone for making it a success.

Special thanks go to :

Moogworzel , for arriving early to give a hand setting up, donating early stuff for the newcomers. and his waitressing skills.
Bezam, For travelling so far, donating stuff for the newbies and his inpromtu presentation on quizzes past and present ( Which really pussicked them up to try it for themselves)
Bernard and Isobel for the donations and support.

Looking forward to the next one :bounce: :bounce: :bounce: Which will be in the New Year.

Aaargh got distracted by shiny things and forgot the quiz :( Which is Jonty's fault.

Thanks again all! *applauds for Jonty, Moogworzel, Bezam, Bernard and Isobel and Hillary*

Incidentally - SUNDERLAND WON AGAINST LIVERPOOL! :P
