    Wink2 London UK get together

    Original Post edited on 23 jan 2012






    Hi everyone,

    I think many of us are very interested in a London GTG

    As a member has suggested, we should probably try to find a CPF-friendly forum, as well as a place in which we can properly try some of the flashlights brought by the members ?

    We are suggesting the following date and location:

    Saturday 4th February @ 4 pm

    Address: The Freemasons Arms Downshire Hill, Hampstead Heath, London, NW3 1NT



    Please let us know your thoughts and let's think about a nice place to go to, any suggestions are more than welcome.

    Yay !

    Just curious. Feb 4 is not in the dates. I will be in London that day and it would be great to meet up. Unfortunately the other dates are not looking so good.

    4 Feb any good?

    I'm fine with the fourth of feb, the only downside is that the moon's at 84% full, but seeing as it will be cloudy and peeing it down (Traditional for a get together!) that shouldn't matter at all.

    To the OP (hemdale, it's you!!)

    Can you change the first post to reflect the choice of location and time? And have a list of potential attendees.

    I'm PM ing the usual suspects in the hope they will chime in here.

    I guess the poll is a bit confusing now?

    The pub details as follows:
    Freemason's Arms
    Downshire Hill,
    Hampstead Heath,
    London,
    NW3 1NT

    Depending on the weather, the pub is normally quite popular. How about meeting around mid afternoon? About four or five?

    They do great gastropub food, if food is required (I prefer this option!!!) we should book.

    I am attending some training at Wembly Arena which is due to finish at 17:15, so would head over straight after that. So I'm guessing I would get there around 18:00ish.

    I’ll be there though I don’t have anything new to show. If anyone needs a ride in from the Bracknell area let me know.

    I found survivaldepot.co.uk today. Not a bad UK site for EDC stuff. Widgy bars, fire starters, titanium bits, etc. Lots of things you usually only see on the American sites. Some of it’s a bit steep like a Maratac AAA at £28 but lots of other stuff at a more reasonable price. Not cheap, but cheaper than shipping from the U.S. Haven’t ordered anything yet but probably will. Check out the screw on thumb stud for your knife blade to turn it into a one handed opener. Not seen that before. On the other hand, I’m not a knife guy so it may be as common as muck on Britishblades. Anyone ordered from them and if yes, are they any good ?

    with intentions from petrev, London Lad, and Size15's into the bargain

    I will be there from four or thereabouts - first person there get a good table with room for torches and peeps - we could book a table for later in the evening for dinner (seven ish?), then go out onto Parliament Hill for some illuminating times?

    great!

    Anyone got a Nitecore TM11 they can bring along for a comparison ???

    I'll also bring a few EDC lights for Hemdale to play with


    @Essexman ... I'll be leaving from work so if you can make your own way down there, I'll be happy to give you a lift home.


    Last I heard, Meganoggin went to the SHOT SHOW, I wonder if hes back yet ?

    I was about to PM you with the same idea, very kind of you young man, I will take up your offer please.

    I've not much new to bring. I'll pack the antique lights that Lee loves, and whatever else comes to mind.

    Would anyone like me to bring some paracord? I don't mind teaching anyone who would like to learn to make a lanyard, doglead, bracelet, whatever?.

    Count me in for food too please.

    Food not a problem. I'll book a table for seven o clock for seven people. we can meet in the bar and progress to a table when ready.

    No Nitecore TM11 - too scary and price too steep - four 18650's? There aren't that many!

    I know I know, I'm a Wuss! And proud of it!

    EDIT:
    TABLE BOOKED FOR SEVEN FOR SEVEN ON THE FOURTH! YAY.
