    So, despite the name (I think) Arthur is a girl - correct me if I'm wrong. So that makes one girl and 6 guys. I wish I'd gone now haha ;)

    There was only me and Arthur left after all the lightweights had gone home. We were outnumbered.

    Next time glam, someone suggested a Friday or Sat eve cause then they can drink and not have to get up for work in the morning, perhaps we can set a date in January to have a new year get together.

    Fridays are good for me. Well, could make most nights, but we mentioned Fri/sat before and I think I'd more likely be busy on a Saturday.

    I think you may be on your own in the Caymans - we did suggest a January get together, but we could aim at a February get together now as it is nearly the end of Jan and too short notice for people.

    Looking at the February calendar the Friday dates are the 5th the 12th the 19th and the 26th.

    I think the 5th is still too early to organize and get a general consensus on when and where to meet up, so the options are 12th 19th and the 26 they are all Fridays in February and maybe we could meet at the Greyhound pub again, unless anyone wants to suggest an alternative.

    Also do we want to meet and just chat or do we want someone to organize a quiz or a Stafford general knowledge question and answer session – is there any Stafford historians on the forum that want to give a talk. I’m all for meeting and drinking alcohol and talking about anything and everything.

    If we do have a quiz or a talk we would have to have a separate room somewhere - some small pubs may let us use a side room. Any suggestions and ideas about where, what and when and who wants to attend would be helpful..
