    Hey guys,
    I was just wondering about how cool it would be to have an EDCforums meet up in London. For the moment this is just an idea, and this thread is just to see if anyone would be interested.

    EDIT: A couple of guys are talking of a Manchester meet up, so though I would help spread the message a bit :p

    I'll say possibly maybe, depending on when and where.

    Yep! I have been chatting oN Instagram with a few people and gave thought about organising a gathering.
    Either one where we camo somewhere and we can take items what we want and are away from orying eyes. Or we get a room in a pub and sit and chat kind of thing.
    What was it you have in mind?
    I'm @coolerking666 on Instagram if you're on it and coolerking1984 on YouTube/Google+ if you're on them.

    Ok, I still do t mind organising something, I am trying to sort one or a few people in the edc community on Instagram.
    Would people want a camp over, one night.
    Or, meet at a pub on a weekend afternoon?

    Ok, i will sort something, but what do you want to do,
    an informal meet in a pub? get a back room at a pub? a different kind of venue altogether? I had mentioned to some people on instagram about a one night camp in the Manchester area where we can set up a gazebo to sit in, chat and compare edc...? we can do that in a pub but limited to what you can get away with carrying, if everyone isnt that bothered about that then a pub may be the best sort of format?
    I know lots of pubs ;-)

    Pub is good, can't think of any in Manchester that have a small function room, can you?

    I'd love to do the camping thing but am pretty short on nights off thanks to a young family.

    I think a pub will be the best option. I know of a few places that we could potentially use. Some in the centre, others a little further out but easily accessible on the train.
    Where a outs are you based?

    Sorry, missed that you'd replied. I'm actually out near Preston, but Manchester is the nearest place I can imaging many people travelling to.

    Followed you on Instagram too.

    If a uk meet is being sorted, im up for that but like 4rmless a young family means plenty of notice, but yeah would be good to meet. camping or pub ..or even pub then camping sounds great!
