We had met the previous time. It was Mel who found me as I was standing, nursing my Seafarers' and looking hopefully around. She came at me out of the sun, so I failed to observe her approach.

You are right, though. It was the badges will drew bluedonkey to us, as he had been lurking for a while.

Ha ha, yes I'd not realised you'd been before as I was coaching volleyball during the inaugural LF social gathering. Yes Mel knows how to best surprise RAF pilots*!

I am pleased, firstly because the badges were not summarily pocketed as too childish, and secondly that they actually enticed one of our number out of the woodwork (so to speak). As I mentioned to AC I'm planning to make public here where I had them made so that others may follow where we dared to tread. :)

Something came up and I had to go down to the West Country. Taking the midnight Penzance sleeper train from Paddington when I'm drunk is something I am seeking to cut down on.

If I'd known somebody would have been looking for me then I should have said. Sorry about that, and I'm glad a good time was had by all.

I once got a late 'sleeper' train from Kings Cross to Stevenage. I was supposed to be getting off at Finsbury Park, unfortunately...

I may do a poll poll to see if there's enthusiasm for a poll.
CS- we could try a Friday again, it wasn't as busy at the Clachan as I was expecting last time

LEMON FOOL LONDON SOCIAL - CELEBRATING THE SECOND ANNIVERSARY OF THE NEW FOOL

(Unashameldy plagiarised from AC's previous work.)

There will be an informal gathering of Lemon Fools (and friends) near Regent St/Oxford Circus on the 16th November. All welcome ! It’s a social evening rather than being ‘investment focused’, although we do occasionally discuss investing….

*******
When: Friday 16 November 2018. 'After work' to closing time (11pm)
Where: The Clachan, 34 Kingly Street, London W1B 5QH
https://www.nicholsonspubs.co.uk/restau ... reetlondon

*******
Directions:
Oxford Circus tube is the closest. On exiting the tube, head SOUTH down Regent St towards Piccadilly Circus. Take the second left after about 600ft (a short amble) into Gt Marlborough St. Almost immediately on your right, before the mock Tudor façade of Liberty London, is an archway which is Kingly Street (more alley than street). The Clachan is on the left a short distance down .
If you get lost ask for directions to Liberty.

How to find the Fools. [missing]

Food:
If you need food get something on the way, or order in the Clachan. They have a pretty reasonable menu and food in Nicholson’s pubs is normally good. You might have trouble finding a table though.


EMERGENCY PLAN B----
If the Clachan is closed due to unforeseen circumstances (fire, flood, locusts) I suggest a retreat to The Blue Posts (18 Kingly St) which is a short way beyond the Clachan on the left. No idea what it’s like, but it’s a pub. I will try to post ON THIS BOARD if we have to change venue [unlikely]
(I have shamefully copied a lot of the above from my last TMF Social post... let me know if there are any errors or inconsistencies)

See you there I hope!

Chris
