  • March! It's mine and Smiffy's in March!

  • Give me a date and I'll see what I can sort out.

    And to answer kk's qustion, I think the reason for the lack of socials is that people meet up in the flesh more often.  In the beginning the Pirates only met up at one or two events a year so the socials were more important.  I've met various Pirates at least once a month this past year and sometimes more often than that.  Specific socials are only required to catch up with those that for whatever reason don't make it to events very often.

  • Caz is right. There's been a lot going on this year and what with new hats, frocks and confetti some of us have run out of dosh for the traditional festivities. If we had more pennies we'd do the lot. Sadly we don't. 

  • too many weddings this year image

     

  • Perhaps we should just get people to promise not to get married next year and then we can fill the lists to keep everybody happy ??     image

  • I promise not to get married next year image

     

  • Or follow the Revered Moon's way and have a mass wedding and then a social that day too? 

  • Where would this social be likely to take place please? I think I need to go somewhere to be taken the piss out of.

  • I'm no detective Dusty but I reckon somewhere in London image

  • Piss taking before you've even got there Dusty. image

     

  • And apart from weddings, lets not forget that the big social of the year is fast becoming Macclesfield. 

  • 24th January works well for me   image

  • Blatant plug time.

    The best of the socials will of course be taking place 7th December in Sheffield.

  • I wish I could Barlos ... !

  • so many events i want to go to so little time............and yes Soupy.Macclesfield is definitely becoming a good social.......and so many newbies this year was brillinat,.looks like the same for next year image

     being earlier next year it will probably be the first in a number of get togethers.....

  • I thought someone had already started one - I may have been mistaken!

     

  • Wilkie the Sheffield one is up and running .. this is  London specific one    image

  • Yeah, probably thinking of that!  image

     

  • I think there may well be a December London and a January London date, I was thinking of having birthday drinks anyway so the two can coincide in january

  • TJ1004 and I had a very social chat on the way back at Outlaw image Sorry can't make either social, December is manic and then 3 of our house hold have birthdays in January! Thankfully I am one of them. Very busy time of year in the Bear house.

    Do we need to start saving for candles?

  • no...meldy is still very young   image

     

  • ...and you dont need 3 guesses to tell who is not far behind me

    Cat.  You'll keep.

  • Beer in December / & or Jan in the smoke sounds good to me.........would be nice if  The Engineer is a good boy this time though and gets given some pocket money to come out and play with image

  • Alibear, social considering we were both guttedimage

    If I can make London pre Christmas happy to do so, difficult for me as daughter seems to be at swim training almost every night and Dad taxi always on call.

    What is the thinking, West End, City, Docklands or somewhere along the river?

    I think we need to start putting the London Mayor on notice that he'd better not be making too many cuts to the London Fire Brigade before January actually!image

     

  • Oh look out .... the spring chicken has come in for a warm  image

  • Mange tout, mange tout mes amis! 

    T'internet connection was resumed today in rural France! image

  • I've thought about the candle issue and you can get the little candles that are actual numbers now, can't you? That would be much safer and we can write her age instead. Then we'd only need three of them.
