    APUG Regional Focus Groups...

    Umm... seeing the interest in the Age/sex/location thread maybe this will get a little response. I noticed that the regional focus groups here have incredible detail in the US and understandably the South Seas area... but Europe is entirely ignored (UK is NOT part of Europe - unashamedly stirring the pot to garner replies).

    I know we have a Norwegian or two, and a Dane or three, and one Dutch guy with Rodinal issues... but how many Europeans are there out here? If we're so few, which I doubt, I can understand why there isn't a regional focus group for nous... but I suspect there's alot more Olde Kontinent types if you turn over a rock or two.

    Or are there?

    Yes...unique - although that's maybe not the first adjective one could use.

    If you want a regional group forum for your area you just need to ask Sean to create one for you. It's up to you to generate any activity thereafter.

    Surely that would require that you learn to drive with the wheel on the proper side of the car... AND on the right side of the road!

    Thanks for the invite, although I hope it's meant more than the usual english "We must do lunch" 'cause I might take you up on it.

    I don't think that would be the problem. I think getting used to the Italian-style mirrors (full-length so you can make sure your suit isn't creased) would be more difficult.

    I think that saying comes from the other side of the pond. You certainly won't hear it said up north!

    The (rather long) thread for the next UK Gathering is here it's on the weekend of 22/23 April here and we'd love to have you join us.

    The same applies to any stray Vikings that might be listening!

    "Struan" is a viking word.

    You lot are hopeless. The perfect opportunity for a group of northern APUGgers to descend on the hapless Nico and drink his cellar dry, and instead you're all inviting him to come the other way for a weekend of gloomy fog and warm bitter.

    Villa Saraceno, or The Glum Bastard Inn, Grimholme? Tough choice.

    Ah, indeed. Those would be the same Vikings that left the cold North in their hundreds of thousands to live in Britain (and Greenland, Siberia etc and crossed the Atlantic in open boats)? Tsk, Tsk, your ancestors must be spinning in their long barrows at such pining for the soft life down south...

    I do feel obliged make the point that you will not hear "we must do lunch" down south either Frank. The only difference is that while the guys ooop north would (quite reasonably, I think) take a flamethrower to whoever made such a suggestion, down here we just restrict ourselves to a distainful look (we're good at those)... Sorry Niko, you got the wrong continent...

    Cheers, Bob.
