Guys - one thing to keep in mind if bringing a lot of guitars is that because the invitation has been thrown open to folks that we may not have met before (and Afghan Dave also put it up on Facebook) is that we must give more thought to security - keeping a watchful eye out for each other's stuff etc.

Last thing we want is for someone unknown (or known) to take advantage of a situation and walk off with someone else's guitar.

Shall we swap mobile numbers (via PM) so that when someone arrives, we can all help ferry gear from car to room in one journey while someone else watches over stuff?

Good idea, although I had been thinking within the venue itself as well.

There is a pay and display carpark opposite the venue although there is also some free on-street parking too , but do check to make sure your vehicle is appropriately parked and paid for rather than have bother with traffic wardens.

I saw the facebook page. Its just occurred to me reading your post Jonathon, that there maybe non bkp forum members there. Last time we met it was all forum members so trust wasn't an issue. Perhaps we should ask Dave about his page and what sort of response he's had from non BKP members. I'm sure it will be ok with a bit of common sense and awareness. It goes without saying that if anyone tries to steal my Koch I'll stamp on their head!

On to the day. Last time we met it was a free for all. It's not good having three amps competing against each other so some kind of system is required. I thought revolve guitars through different amps one at a time, otherwise it just gets painful!

George, that's loads of Guitars mate!

Before anybody has a fit over the F**king Facebook page let me assure you that it has only been sent to motivate BKP'ers who are also on FBook...

Approx 18 people!

Consider the page removed.  :?

Aw, there was no harm in the idea.  :lol:

If 18 turned up that would probably be a record, wouldn't it?

Dave - I certainly wasn't mentioning it in any negative way , more just thinking aloud that if people are bringing half their arsenal it may prove tricky keeping a watchful eye over everyone's gear (as well as my own stuff which will be there in force)

I was really just thinking that this time more than previous meets we may get some new faces (and make them welcome too) but that some folks may randomly turn up & be an unknown quantity and we should be aware of leaving gear unwatched.

Actually I didn't realise that the facebook page was viewable by so few - you hear about teenagers getting their houses mobbed through announcing birthday parties on facebook in the papers and you wonder how the party details get out

Oh crikey, I know that feeling.  Not that I'm ever particularly chilled, mind.

I just hope we won't have another 3 months of this shite, it's still only June.  :(

You can keep your $%&#ing beaches.  :P  Brazilian women.... that's a different story.  But a bit scary for the likes of me.

It's the total lack of air-conditioning that makes things so uncomfortable here.

The London Underground is actually dangerous at times like this....  heat + stagnant air and claustrophobia can really hit some people hard.

I'm fine in the hot summer of New York because you can escape the heat and the subway is ice cold.

+1.  Coming home from Canary Wharf to Stratford on the Jubilee line yesterday, I thought I would pass out, it was that hot.  Generally OK if the train's moving - but, hey! - this is the LONDON underground, and so naturally it stopped every few minutes...

Right, open invitation to anyone who lives in or around Northants and between Kettering and London. I'll take you there if you have no viable means of transport.

Any word from Tom yet Paddy?

How about two different studios on this meet. One for high gain one for everything else.

Hot eh? You want to try driving a lorry around London. Mind you because I'm so tough I wore a parka with a furry hood and turned the heater up full.

It was ff hot yesterday so rather than roast to death in traffic jams I used my iPhone to look at the jam spots on the TFL cam app and avoided them and kept moving thus ensuring a constant airflow in the cab.  :D Who was it who said iPhones were cr@p!  :P
