London BKP forum Members meet up - July 18th 2010 2-7pm

OK - have put this up as a new topic with a more easily understood title - wondered if the old title put some folks off
The other thread is still here http://bareknucklepickups.co.uk/forum/index.php?action=post;msg=288755;topic=21324.60;sesc=304ebcdd9f8df9b5e0295e063a5c2f9b

Every now and them many of us BKP forum users get together , and finally get to meet each other face to face , drink beer , check out each others guitars and generally have a good laugh. Theze have been great fun in the past and have also made the forum even more fun and lively as friendships have been further cemented etc.

This time I have decided to act as host  and will probably put on a display of some of my handmade guitars as well .

I have a really great venue which is part rehearsal/gig venue, part bar.

Please note this isn't just a closed circle of friends getting together - in spite of many of us having made each other's acquaintance before.
It is open to any of the BKP forumites (even if you haven't posted)
It will be a fun afternoon and be a great chance to get to know other guys like yourselves who are mad about guitars and pickups, amps and stuff.
We are not pro level players and it isn't an organised jam session in any way
We usually end up just trying out each others guitars and having a laugh and all learning stuff (the fun way)

There aren't many rules (apart from being nice to each other and not nicking each others guitars, picks or beer)

Feel free to pop along - you don't have to bring a guitar or anything , although you will be very welcome to

The event will run from 2 till 7pm (longer in the bar later perhaps) on Sunday 18th July
It is upstairs at The Scream Lounge
Scream Studios                              
20A Southend
Croydon
Surrey
CRO 1DN


Nearest rail = South Croydon, East Croydon (probably busiest station) or West Croydon (London Overground as well)
Lots of buses running to outside the studio as well
Road users - South End is part of the A235 and is easily accessed from M25/M23/A23

Mods - can we have this as a sticky topic please

Ill be there dudes!

I'm bringing my Koch and all my guitars. I may as well if I'm driving. I'll bring my tascam recorder too, for some clips. Or if anyones going with a good laptop with a DAW installed and an audio interface, I've got a SM57. We could record some clips. Just a thought with cranked amps and mic'd up cabs.

Although my ears are still ringing from the last time I heard it.

I'll be attending this and driving down. If anyone is from the Northants area (or MK or Luton, I've gotta go thru those to get there) then I can pick up and drop off if you're willing to split petrol?

I'll be bringing both my shagged non-BKP Gibsons to the meet.

I'm very close to MK and Luton... but work commitments mean I can't really give a final answer until the day before - would it be ok to come back to that offer in a few weeks?

Does Tom live nearby to you? Perhaps he might want a lift.  :)

Oh me! Me! Me! I'm in mother$%&#ers, will most likely be driving from Ipswich, so if anyone is Suffolk/Essex based I'm sure I could pick you up. Can bring along my tele (which was popular last time) and my MQ equipped SG.
