I'm still away for the moment, won't be along next week either..was thinking about organising an outing the week of the 9th, possibly just doing a picnic at the botanical gardens, or going to  http://www.simt.co.uk/abbeydale-industrial-hamlet/about for a tour, what do you all think?
Confabulation!

Would love to, but can't do that weekend as I'll be in Manchester  :-[
I made a note in my diary on the way over here. Simply says; "Bugger!"

Depends when people are free, can do Thursday before going along to the pub, or the weekend..I posted about it on Facebook but haven't had any interest there.
I'm free any day though, have finished uni for the year now :)

Hi - Queen's Head as usual?

I shall have to go and have leaving drinks with a work colleague of mine first (probably just 1 in fact) but since he has considerately chosen the Sheffield Tap as the venue this should not be a problem!

So I'll see whoever's there at about 7ish...?

Ah ok, I'll tell you the results of the competition here then- I didn't win unfortunately, but I did get a high commendation for the design :D
(This'll be the last meet I make for a few months now so probably won't see you til September next)

Not really, but I can do something approaching it with a fountain pen and enough time and concentration.

I'm working away at the Sheffield branches of our store next week, would be alright if I popped in for a pint?

Always interested in how other groups do it! :)

What's this? New people? I picked a bad week to be away D:


Hey, I'm really getting into steampunk, and was hoping to go to something like this, but I work thursday nights. I'll keep my eye on the thread, but if you guys do anything on other days I'd really love to gen involved

I spotted this flyer near where I live, might be worth organising an outing to it, I hear they're always good nights :) (I believe Mr B performed there a couple of years ago..)

I'm kind of annoyed that i'm away now, the event is literally a two minute walk from my house :/
(Also if you're looking for food after I highly recommend the Sun Kong Chinese round the corner from there, looks a bit grubby but fantastic food)
