    Cool HEXUS.social Redux - 10th Anniversary Edition

    So many moons ago, for those of you new to the fold since then, we had a rather successful social forum.

    It had a fearless leader, who would ensure we covered all the corners of the land. Mostly.

    I'm thinking we should try another, as October 2016 was the 10th Anniversary of this crazy enveadour. "They'll never come" they said, "they're geeks, they don't know how to socialise". Alas we proved them wrong. We did socialise, and frequently for a good few years. Born out of that was also a LAN team.

    If we get enough takers I'll also reinstate the yearly Bletchley Park meet, as we all feel this is a very important place, especially to geeky sorts.

    To this end I want to see if we've got enough interest to get some people together this year. Get the summer out the way, so probably sometime in September/October. If you're interested, let me know where we should start. It's multiple choice so please let me know all the options you would be willing to travel for.

    This is an "All Welcome" event. A lot of us (especially those in green) were serial "Socialites" but new faces are always welcome and makes sure discussion doesn't go stale. We like a bit of fresh meat We were all the "New faces" at some point.

    Reading seems to have "easy convenient connections" to just about everywhere, these days... Plenty of conference centres, pubs, bars, and all that...

    Bletchley Park sounds good. I've never been but it's high up on my list of places to visit.

    Figment of your imagination!

    I'm happy to go to BP if the consensus for the first Meet is for there... still interested in the results of the poll as it gives me an idea of where to go next...

    does this also mean P.H.D. is making a come back?

    does this mean that everyone on here will soon be in the green name club?

    who knows?

    IIRC - green name club was for anyone who attended three Hexus.Social events or organised one!

    ( I think buying Tigs a large wedge of cake also counted towards social membership! )

    PHD will also need a resurrection, definitely.

    I believe cake purchase fast-tracked you to membership... I was so easily bought back then....

    (... and now, it's still my kryptonite...)
