So in preparation for the 2018 UK Meet up in March it was decided there would be a 2017 mini meet this weekend at Docs house somewhere near the north pole. Im not sure of location except if was farking freezing so it was quite far north
Friday saw me arrive at the local airport after a short flight with HisRudeness arriving slightly later after a long drive and Northerner and partner Carol arriving soon after. Docs and Char made us instantly welcome and a big meal was prepared, we gathered around the table like one big family to eat, chat, laugh and settle in. As we sat there nattering and laughing i couldn't believe i had arrived mere hours ago as i think we all felt perfectly comfortable.
I think its customary to say nice things about your hosts here but genuinely, you could not meet a nicer, more honest, down to earth family.
After tea we moved in to the lounge where i managed to take loads of pictures of boxes and virtually none of the people....... just shows the level of boxes on display....

Saturday started off with bacon butties all round before more troops arrived, Davebush showed up first, nice chap and great to meet him at last. Soon after Nickfish arrived with partner Christine, really nice to meet Nick finally and he brought some real gems inc a boxed Superscope from 1979 as as mint as you like and a big Tosh WX1. Nick is instantly likable and has a real passion for these old things and given a chance i would of talked to him for many more hours/days!
A massive Curry order on Saturday night ensued with lots and lots of beer consumption followed by some UFC and lots of talk on boxes, wishlists, repairs, life, the universe and everything. It was a busy house this weekend and our gracious hosts took it in their stride and showed how it should be done.
I'm sure there will be other pictures to come, sorry i didnt photo any attendees, I dont like my photo taken much so don't tend to get people pics, there were some awesome ones on whats app so im sure some will surface!
