Sorry to burst your bubble gents re your maybe first NW meet-up, but @PingSpike (Wigan) and I (Bolton) got together for the forum’s first meet before Xmas :wink::wink:.

Glad you had a good time together - that’s the beauty of a Brits only forum.

:roll_eyes::roll_eyes::roll_eyes::roll_eyes::roll_eyes:

Ah but on the positive side, the Howfener supplies the beef and the Pie Eater turns it into a delicious, succulent pie - yumee :yum::yum:

That’s it, I’m now convinced that anywhere north of Watford is another land with it’s own language and customs! None of my translation apps can help me understand this. :exploding_head:


#6

Me too did I write that drivel


#7

Nice one guys!

Are you stood in the car park of the pub there?

Did you fly down the dam wall?? And was the res overflowing?


#8

Yes, res was overflowing, but not much.
We flew out over res to take some shots of The Turnpike, @sparkman999 worked his magic and e-mailed them as a thank you to the pub.
We used top car park, no issue using it as long as no weddings on, plenty of space for cars and take off/landing area. Easy to cordon off etc.
We got contact details in case we want to arrange a future meet up there.
Just bring your passports and some beer tokens with you…
You will receive a warm welcome to God’s Own Country.

Passports?!

It’s not that far north, you’re still in England :rofl:

Or is this another northern term meaning something completely different?? :smiley:


#10

Oh Rich, @PingSpike, you may live up here but you’ve clearly still have some Southern still in you :grinning::grinning:


#11

Apparently so!

I left London 18 years ago and I’ve been a pie eater ever since!

The whole passports thing is one I’ve not yet come across though, I might have to google this one :rofl:
