Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

If a beer festival is what it takes, by all means...

We should need our own tent if we get all 60+ of us to show up ;-)

If we get 6+ I'll be amazed, let alone 60 !! Especially as ThatBritGuy doesn't drink and may resent having to pay to enter a beer fest.

Then we need an alternative plan. This is ridiculous, what does it take to get UK ETers out of their dens?

I'm not too thrilled about paying to enter a beer fest either, but you gotta do what you gotta do.

I flew the idea simply cos it's a novel thing to do and a semi-formal beer tasting might have made for a fun entree.

However, I'm perfectly happy to go elsewhere, but a lot of UK/South East England members seem to prefer not to socialise with us.

Like I said, whatever works.

How in blazes did you people ever manage to run  empires? Did you just send the Irish and the Scots over to do it for you? Can someone pick a date and a place for a 51st state of the US meet-up and be done with it? I don't care if it's drinking beer, watching cricket or walking the treadmill in the local work-house. August/September sounds good. September is probably better if you want to avoid the holiday thing. Though I suspect people here may be more likely to be on holiday in September than in August.
