[UK] Norwich -Home of Delia, the Canaries & a Kickass castle

Postby ZombieAtPlay » Sun May 04, 2008 7:20 pm UTC

Anyone in the east of England want to meet up somewhere in Norwich?
I'm sure much imbibing of alcohol could be done and Velociraptors may be discussed at length!

Hey there, I'm in Norfolk. I looked on the geohashing wiki and there seems to be around three people there who aren't me. I also have a couple of friends kicking about the place who are xkcders. There must be more than six in this county, it's absurd.

Imho it would be better to have an official meet up on a saturday at the geohashing location just so that us random strangers have something to talk about but, saying that, it very commonly ends up places that I can't get to easily.

How many people do you think we need to make it a viable option?
And any suggestions for a location?

hey all :)
i just made an account with the intention of finding some xkcd'ers in the norwich region - and was amazed to see norwich right at the top of the UK meetup threads! it must be fate. or something.

anyway, the thinking was... i'm moving to norwich in a month or so for work reasons and was wondering about a way of meeting some cool new people. it suddenly occurred to me that meeting some fellow xkcd types would practically ensure some good times and so if there is a meeting anytime in the next few months then let me know! beer and velociraptors (sorry, the complete absence of velociraptors) sounds good to me.

have a good week, all.

Does anyone know eaton park? Near the farmhouse pub? I can't find a good map to it, but that would be a good place IMO. And if it rains we can give the pub some business.
And how about one saturday mid/late july?

Any other sugestions?

I'm up for some Norwich meetup-age.

I live in Wroxham so somewhere I can park near, or near to the train station would be nice, I don't mind walking a ways though.

(Of course if anyone lives very close to Wroxham/Hoveton, and fancy's hitting a pub here, I'd be happy to join you.)

Just to rock the boat a bit, how about something this Saturday? I'm not free many weekends and this is looking like it may well be one of them.

Or how about hitting up a pub one evening after work?

Is that Sgt. Peppers restaurant still knocking around Lowestoft?

Sounds good, time? (I suggest if evening, then fairly early as I can't stay 'till closing time if I want to get home - last train at 10:45).

Who else?! 8)

Awesome idea, I'll probably wear some kind of skydiving clothing (it's good, 'cause it's pretty unlikely anyone else will) in case I get there first.

I'd be willing to make the trip next week. Got any directions to get there from boro/ the postcode of the pub in question?

You missed one the saturday just gone, it wasn't the biggest meetup in the history of xkcd, but it did happen.

I'll probably be busy next saturday, Friday evening could be good (or any weekday evening - monday to thursday would actually be even better for me potentially)

We also need to organise the meet proper (in a park in the daytime)

Ok, sorry for not updating this thread sooner but i have had an exended stay in hospital. Long story.

Anyway, Hows the 30th of august for everyone? Is eaton park still a good spot? Or even the weatherspoons near the station again?

hey all, have finally moved to the fine city of norwich and got my internet setup. yeah, 30th august is good, though i'm busy in the evening so it'd have to be an afternoon thing till about 5 for me. if that's good for everyone else then great, if not i can hang on till the next one.

Ok, why isn't this working? :P
Probably my fault. I'm not good at remembering dates and times :oops:

Anyone got any ideas for another day?

Very good of you to start something like this despite such a disadvantage. I salute you, sir. :p

Well, for the sake of simply suggesting a date - I'm busy for the next few weekends but am free the weekend of 17-19 October, so if anyone has any preference on better days/times then feel free to suggest it!

As for activity I'm thinking nice coffee shop/pub in town? Beverages and banter, anyone?

Hey

I'm new here, just moved to Norwich but I'd be up for a meet (as would my boyfriend and best friend, both xkcd=ers) Will there be any meets happening anytime soon? or am I too late?

Peace

There are a number of Norwich XKCDers waiting in the woodwork if a meetup was organised!
