Hi All
Has anybody put the ideal of localised meet ups out there?

IE: Devs, designers etc... local to say Glasgow, meetup for drinks in Glasgow, Leicester based ones in Leicester etc.....?

Thoughts?

Hi Alex
Thank you, I am aware of meetup.

What I mean is more meeting up of the members here on DF, and those that want to? :)

@Wac
Too far for me buddy - I'm Leicester based. But, i'm sure some of the Birmingham DF possy would be interested in knowing about it none-the-less.

@Sean
Yeah same here; but, I wonder how many members down by you would be interested in a meet up?

Just a thought, if you don't put it out there how do you know right. :)

Jaz, you've been away a long time now, and I understand if it might look like we do nothing right now but we have explored this possibility many times before, to quite an extent! We just found that the majority of our regulars are too scattered for there to be enough of a group to make this a reality.

Maybe if we can get things up and running again, I'd love to make DF meetups a reality!

I don't really hang out over here much. But over on Estetica we have a meetup once a year and get people from all over the country. Just a case of commitment. We had people coming from Glasgow, Newcastle, Leeds and Lincoln that I can remember all popping over to Sheffield earlier in the year.

It's never going to be convenient for everyone.

Yeah they're very much worth it.

Met a lot of people who I'd now consider good friends, learned a lot, and I guess more importantly met some fantastic industry contacts I can lean on when needed.

If anyone wants to meet up in the Chesterfield/Sheffield area then I will be on the recreation ground across from my house (most nights).

Activities include: Strong cider drinking and exposing ones self to passing motorists......... oh, and portfolio reviews.

Not really. But I guess that all depends on your own personality.

The main thing is you're all there because you have a least one thing in common, makes breaking the ice a bit easier.

Until Scotty runs in and starts exposing himself to everyone, of course...

I'd love to meet up with anyone who's into web/design in the Brighton area, just send me a message or email and we can sort something out.

To be honest, I really don't see why we don't just sort out a meeting in the middle of the country for sometime over the summer? Like Mark says, it'll never be convenient for everyone. Even if 6-8 people get together, we could do some serious liver damage?
