    Cool HEXUS.Social - Saturday 23rd September 2017 - Birmingham

    ******* UPDATE ********

    I'm going to aim for the Dragon Inn, Hurst Street, Birmingham, West Midlands, B5 4TD for around 2.15pm

    (I get to Birmingham New Street about 2.05pm so 10 mins of getting lost and we should be there )

    My brother has recently moved close to Lea Hall Station so I'll be staying there for the night, but trains run until 11pm.

    To make it a bit easier to spot me (and if I still fit it) I'll try and wear my old Team H3XU5 LAN shirt.

    PM me for a mobile number I'll be using on the day.

    Looking forward to meeting some new faces.

    Tigs.

    Hi All,

    Thanks for all your responses for locations. I'm so excited to start these up again as I've met some amazing friends through HEXUS and it's about time we carried on the tradition.

    I've chosen this date and location first off for purely selfish reasons - I need to be in Dudley on the Sunday so I thought I'd tag team the weekend with a meet on the Saturday.

    As I recall it's also where we had the first ever meet many moons ago.

    I've got a few bits of logistics to sort out, so I'll update here when we have a meet location, time etc.

    This might coincide with the Mrs being away for the weekend, so I'm a maybe, Birmingham's a little bit of a trek for me but I can jump on a train if I don't have to bring Colossus along.

    Are you planning on making a night of the social, with people staying over night somewhere?

    I should be OK to attend and will probably take the train rather than deal with driving.

    We could do... but I wouldn't start at lunchtime in that case. I am getting "Old" in my Old age so staying up late requires preparation.

    My Brother is moving into South Birmingham in the next 3 weeks so I have an option there to stay.

    Hi all,

    I'm looking forward to meeting you/ seeing you again in a week and a half.

    Apologies for the tardiness of organisation.... Had a hectic couple of weeks at work. I'll try and get a location and time to meet sorted this weekend.

    Let me know if you're still coming
