  • That is a very good idea.  It has never been done before.

    I will have a word with them at Green Corner and see what I can arrange.

    Should it be a night with entertainment or a quiet night when you can all chat?  I need some input here

  • We might get a group discount for their new restaurant on the 1st floor (never been before) and for those unable to attend we can organise a delivery take away.

    Thanks dolly, my thought was just a chat and drink but happy to go along with other suggestions

  • Which night are you planning to go for and how are you going identify yourselves???

  • how are you going identify yourselves???


    ....................and therein lies the problem !!

    Currently we are all a bit of a mystery to each other insofar that we "talk" to each other via the message boards, but we have absolutely no idea whatsoever as to who we are actually talking to - it's quite strange if you think about it.

    Posting on the message boards is one thing, but actually meeting face to face for a drink is tantamount to a "blind date" - I actually don't think it would be a good idea at all - best leave the posters to your imagination - they may not live up to your expectations !!

    So if the meet up/get together does take place and someone taps you on the shoulder and says "Hi - i'm the LosGigantesKid, who are you ?" - don't believe them because it won't be me ! - (I would however like to be a fly on the wall).

     I can just imagine all the people who do want to meet up walking passed say the Green Corner back and forth squinting through the window to see what sort of person lies within - more likely nobody will actually be inside - but many persons walking outside all looking in at an empty room !

    Am I the only one who thinks a physical meeting is not a good idea ? - in any event I will not be in LG at Xmas - although I will be there a little before and a little after.  Good Luck .
    I wanted to be the Cincinnati Kid - but couldn't spell it

  • I am totally with you LGK, surely the whole point of any message board is the fact that you can say whatever you feel. (within reason)
    We are drawn to different people by their facial expressions, the way we chat in an informal way and  our shared interests.
    Not because we post about LG on here.

  • The only way to do it, is to meet and not identify yourself by on-line name, except Dolly who could wear a badge as the Administrator. Curious and curiouser.

  • they do this kind of thing on Tenerife Forum all the time. They seem to like it and most of the posters are in favour.  I think they do it a couple of times a year but not sure.  I think I have worked out a few of you anyway from little clues here and there!

  • As far as identifying message board members on the night -  I have taken the initiative today   by ordering  10 boxes of  emergency  moustaches on Amazon ( 6 different moustaches per box) at  a bargain price of £4.00 per box which will be available on the night for members only- my treat. When worn they are,  “guaranteed to make you instantly unrecognisable” - so bashful attendees such as the Kid need not worry about compromising their real identities.

    http://www.amazon.co.uk/s/?ie=UTF8&keywords=emergency+moustaches&tag=googhydr-21&index=aps&hvadid=11146523460&hvpos=1t1&hvexid=&hvnetw=g&hvrand=10250128841751320038&hvpone=&hvptwo=&hvqmt=b&ref=pd_sl_45hmrcmnro_b

    However, Mrs Falstaff  is concerned that  there may be elderly ladies (like her) present  at the venue who are not message board members who may be accosted by mistake. Anyone got any ideas about how we can avoid this dilemma - what do think Pablo, I would really appreciate your feedback on this one. And do you think we should employ a bouncer in case  the awkward squad start  fighting with each other  over the most popular styles (no need to mention names, we all know who they are).

    And what about partners, will they be welcome?

    And what about presents - Mrs  Falstaff has suggested that we each draw up a gift wish list  which would need to be circulated  and ticked by everyone well  in advance. She suggests a maximum upper limit of £5 per gift so as to avoid embarrassing those members who go self catering -based on 60 members it works out at only £295 in total per member.

    Feedback would be much appreciated.

    Many thanks

  • Further to Falstaff, what about if we wore sunglasses, shorts, and carried a copy of the tenerife sun newspaper around. This way we would be able to recognise each other, and no one else would no.
