    So then, it's that time of year when northern urbs get the urge to meet up for a pint or two (or ten). Being northern, it takes a lot of time and effort to come to a decision as to where and when.

    Barleybabes seems to have decided on where for us already. It's going to be in Hebden Bridge, unless everyone decides they'd rather stay home and rearrange their cutlery drawer than visit Hebden.
    There's good pubs, the best WMC in the world with very cheap beer, good walks for them that fancy a walk first and excellent train services from Leeds, Manchester and Blackpool so no excuses for not being able to get there.

    Next bit is the hard bit. When?
    Summer sometime is the vague plan. I'm fancying May or June myself before everyone beggers off on holiday.
    Anyone planning on coming stick your two penneth in now and tell us when you can and can't come. I'll do a poll if I can master the technicalities of one.

    Posting this a few hours early to stop Barleybabes nagging me to get on with it :p :D

    I've added a poll with far too many options but there you go.

    Sprocket. No matter where; of comfort no man speak..

    Good venue at Hebden Trades if it is still the same as ever.
    Would love to attend this meet.

    I'll come to this, but have no preference for dates as I don't plan that far ahead. I'll probably go for a walk first up on the moors if the weather is OK.

    Trades is better than ever. It's cleaner for one thing :D
    Still essentially the same though :)

    I can't help but think of dubious goings on whenever the Hebden Trades club is mentioned. It sounds like a sordid leather bar. :hmm:

    Is that wishful thinking barleybabes? :D

    The man who has the studio opposite mine makes leather underpants if that helps :hmm:

    I used to work as a model for a guy in Kensington Market who made knitted tops out of leather. That was odd.

    So Hebden is full of deviants who wear leather undies then. I suspected as much.

    Haworth is 10 minutes away over the hill. You sneak off and come with us :D
    Although in reality maybe we avoid the 19th. I think June will be better anyway.

    Actually, I've only seen the one chap that gets them made for himself. He's a slimy bloke with greasy hair and a huge beer gut and I'm not sure that wearing leather underpants would do him any favours :D

    Maybe, but I don't know about dates yet :hmm:

    (Also Hebden Bridge isn't proper north :rolleyes:)

    It's months away - surely you're not such a social butterfly that you're booked that far in advance? :hmm:

    Calamity1971 If Mr Peanut says It's okay, then it is.

    Like the sound of that. I stayed in haworth in the white horse last year and visited Hebden for the second time. Got a friend in Liverpool who would be up for it and a fairly local lad from Queensbury.

    I’ve started the fb group I meant to start last time we fucked this up - The Fishing Union of Calderdale & Kirklees. And I’ve added Shirl, which has probably deeply confused her :cool: Fez909, mango5 & neonwilderness will be added in a sec :thumbs:

    I'm only confused because someone in your group is friends with a friend that I have from elsewhere :D

    No, what I mean is someone, Fez909 I think but I can never remember is name, is a friend of someone I know from Leeds, who isn't a part of the group or on urban.

    kalidarkone Bringing YOU round.....

    I really want to come to this, if the poll can be concluded fairly quickly then I can request my shifts around the date. I also have holiday booked including may 26 so that would be great.
    Any idea where it's gonna be? As would want to check out a place to camp in the van. X
