    It was my idea - I started the thread, but I let the others organise it ;)

    Indeed. There may be less of her, but there's not fewer..

    I may attend in a 'making up the numbers' capacity....

    I'm still plagued I'm afraid, despite managing not to vomit today I suspect going out for pie and cider to be a very bad idea! Home to bed after work for me!

    I brought it back up when things had gone quiet I might add and djwellis has been phoning people getting them to come! (I'm not sure if he's got a few more local business peeps coming or not - I know he was making some calls yesterday). I think it' been a bit of a group effort but we got there eventually. I shall be there, as will vault boy to represent his company. Hope those missing out feel better soon! If people want I'll take some "minutes" (used in the loosest possible way) and we'll update you on what we discuss and when we plan to meet again.

    oh yeah will we be upstairs? I was going to turn up and say "I'm here for the pie club"

    TVM. It'd be pie & lemsip for me, and that combo really doesn't have the same appeal!

    Yes it will be upstairs, away from other eyes. Yes, do ask for the pie club meeting.

    I should probably point out that everyone will be ordering individually (as far as I'm aware the rule was no fees but everyone pays for their own pie and ale) and we'll all probably need a receipt each (for tax purposes as this is a business meal). Can P&A accommodate this?

    Edit: you might think "of course we can silly woman!" but I thought it best to mention so we didn't end up with any issues at the end of the evening!

    I do apologise for the mild gate crashing last night...it seemed like a good idea after 2 pints.

    Anyway, I'm trying to start a business - can one join the club even if one has yet to make any sales?!
