Manchester Meet Up (just ten days away folks!)

So Adam (@nicolas_noir) decided we ought to have another northern meet up on 4 Feb but aside from that no details have been arranged. A few people have messaged me asking me the plan and despite not wanting to get involved after the disaster of last time - here I am again!

[photo:

I think this time all we really need to do is choose a meeting time and place on Saturday 4 February. I talked to Adam and in order to fit in all the good camera/film shops in Manc we were thinking of meeting at 11am. We never got round to discussing where so I reckon maybe Picadilly station? I guess it has some kind of capitalist coffee emporium so maybe we could meet there? I think it is a Starbuck so let’s meet in there at 11am? I hope that is ok with everyone and if I have forgotten to tag anyone under here then please add them on.

    Sorry to butt in but if you're organising a meet why not meet at the Lomo Store- we'd love to see y'all! We're at 20 Oldham Street, next door to Vibyk exchange and two or three doors down from the Night and Day.

    @explorette @johnccc @panchoballard @jennysparkle @davidpowell @tirj @nicolas_noir Right kids there is a fair amount of Fbing, tweeting and texting going on surrounding this shindig tomorrow and the possible bad weather conditions. I have decided (in part due to the weatherman always being wrong and in part due to my cavalier and rather blase attitude) that I will still be going no matter what. This means that @fletchinski84 @louwest @superintendent and @easilydistracted will be coming as I am driving them over. We still aim to get to the Lomo Store for 11:30 am and if anyone needs to text me then my number is 07732173911 so if you decide to come / not come then letting me know would be fab. Also if the Lomo store people could please make it in, even if there is a lot of snow, this would be great! X

    So glad I looked at this tonight, saw the forecast earlier and worried this would be cancelled. Providing all is well in the morning I'll be there. Will send a text though just to confirm tomorrow. Have a safe drive over!
