Monkeyboy - your friends from Canada are ambitious!
What new torch did you order?
Hello Ken, good to see you're still around on CPF. I'm keeping an eye on the GTA thread.
I just ordered a Malkoff MD3/4 (with XP-G emitters). I'm looking forward to that one coming but it will probably take a while from the US and I always get hit by import duty too. Should be worth it though as I've been waiting for the XP-G version for some time. This will be my first torch purchase in about 5 months.
I just realised I can now say "torch" without being mocked repeatedly.

Andrew, I hereby officially mock you for saying 'torch'
BTW - the Malkoff sounds terrific - bring it to the next one!
We hope to still be able to make it, although might not be able to stay too late for the pizzas after the walk - depends on tube times back to home. See how it goes.
Have two new SST50 based torches on the way, and will bring the monster maglite

I should be able to make it this time. looking forward to meeting you all!
It will be interesting to compare the Malkoff to one of my XPG Mag mods
Malkoff normally ships quickly
Ooooooooo .... does that mean we get to play with your Photon King
Has anyone heard from BlueLED ?
Would be good to compare XP-G's if not this time then maybe the next. What's your plan tx101? Still coming round later?
I misread the tfl website earlier. The last tube train for me is at 00:16 actually and I'm going all the way to the other end of the northern line. So plenty of time for pizza etc.
+1 What about blueLED, is he still unable to post? anyone know if he's coming?

I need to get back to Suffolk eventually and the last mainline train is about 23:00 so I may stay somewhere local over night.
And you I'll bring the PK1.
hey guys, im not a daily cpf user latley but im in the uk and i had no idea there was get togethers in the UK i live about a 5hour drive (i think) from london so its a bit of a trek for me but i sure hope to come along to one of the get togethers soon
Four surefires and counting, this could be expensive
. I think I need to unsubscibe from this thread as I can't make it and it's starting to get to me!!!!
Have a great time all of you. Please take lots of pics and post them up ASAP!
Monkeyboy - What's the date for the next one !!
@ Monkeyboy, I finish work around 5, depending on the traffic
it take me roughly about a hour to get there. So it is more than
likely that Im not going to be that late
@Essexman ..... if I bring my Flexifoils and attach a load of torches to them
We could fly them on the Heath when it gets dark .... is that enough to make
you come to this meet :P
Where are you BlueLED ????
BTW ... I am coming from Canning Town, East London ... If anyone needs
a lift, let me know
London Lad, looking forward to seeing the legendary PK1.
It is becoming contageous... I am British and speak British English (why do I even have to say 'British' in front?) and the word for a portable electronic light powered by batteries in 'English' is a TORCH!!!
Is it possible for my regional settings in this forum to allow me to become a 'Torchaholic' or 'Lightaholic' instead of a 'Flashaholic'? (I don't go round 'flashing')
Paid Subscription options for you to become a CPF Benefactor, which will appear next to your name instead of 'Flashoholic'.
Resistance is futile...
Where about is area DM51 anyway?
Anyone else getting excited?
I've got the multimeter and charger out as we speak!
I can't decide which lights to bring (again).....
See you Saturday! Woo Hoo
amateurs practice ‘till they can get it right – professionals practice ‘till they can’t get it wrong
Not long to go now! My Malkoff wildcat hasn't arrived yet so it will probably show up sometime next week. Wasn't really expecting it this soon anyway.
I dont think I am going to be able to charge up all my cells in time
Looks like I will only be bringing a couple of lights
Looks like I will have to miss this again )-:
However I do have a mystery prize for the raffle if you are having one.
Let me know who wins the 'London Lad mystery prize' and I'll get it in the post on Monday.
Here's to next time guys!
OK so here's the updated list and location/time. Sorry you can't make it London Lad.
Location: Hampstead Heath, Freemason's Arms (32 Downshire Hill, London NW3 1NT)
Date: 5th June
Last underground trains leave at 00:03, 00:08 and 00:16
Don't foget TallNHairyDave and his other half ! (post 215)
Have a great time everyone, you have perfect weather today.
Looking forward to the pics....
I'm going to have to drop out at short notice...
Put my foot down a hole in the garden where we're clearing it (had to dig out a large set of roots for some brambles) and I've twisted my bloody ankle. So that rules out the hampstead walk this evening
Have a good time guys!
Do a lot of you guys actually live inside London? Would be good to have a meet somewhere just outside London, Hampstead would be a bugger to get to for me. Im in Camberley, Surrey. Just SW of London. Theres plenty lovely country pubs and North Downs etc to walk on... just a thought. Have a good time at the meet, dont dazzle too many barmaids/Hampstead Heath doggers lol.
Running a bit late don't go anywhere without me plz!!
