Just that really.
After seeing so many Cambridge folk in one place on the hotel thread I thought it'd be nice to try and have a meet up.

So sign up here!

Sadly, I will be out of the country through the 4th. Anytime after that works for me though, so if I miss the first meet up then you must promise me another one even if you all hate each other. I haven't lived in CB very long and it would be nice to meet more locals.

Throughgrittedteeth Mon 15-Jul-13 18:19:24

If we do do it on the 2nd Skinnylegs would you be able to come?

Throughgrittedteeth Mon 15-Jul-13 18:20:30

Shush Gin, the pub is the obvious answer wink what kids?

GinAndIt Mon 15-Jul-13 18:37:41

grin oh I agree, the pub is definitely the way to go!

Throughgrittedteeth Mon 15-Jul-13 19:01:19

Oooh sorry Skinnylegs just reread your post, you're out of the country until the 4th? We could do it after that? Maybe the Friday after, the 9th?

NewtoCambridge Mon 15-Jul-13 19:32:03

Should work for me, may even mean I'm going out an unprecedented 3 Fridays in a row

NewtoCambridge Mon 15-Jul-13 19:33:20

Sorry missed the second page, 2nd or 9th works for me i have no life

GinAndIt Mon 15-Jul-13 19:33:39

oh bugger can't make the 9th sad

Throughgrittedteeth Mon 15-Jul-13 20:49:48

What about the 10th?

MarronGlace Mon 15-Jul-13 20:53:12

I'm away for most ofAugust but would love to meet up if decide to do it again at some other time

mynameisnt Mon 15-Jul-13 20:56:30

any date good for me before the 23rd grin

NewtoCambridge Mon 15-Jul-13 20:57:35

How about we got for the 2nd and then another in September given how many people will be away for school holidays

Throughgrittedteeth Mon 15-Jul-13 21:03:34

That's a good idea smile

GinAndIt Mon 15-Jul-13 21:10:27


SkinnyLegsAndAll Mon 15-Jul-13 22:51:12

Sorry, my post was confusing - yes, I will be out of town until the 4th.

August 9th or 10th would work for me but so would a second meet up in September if everyone else is good for the 2nd. <jealous>

SkinnyLegsAndAll Mon 15-Jul-13 22:52:36

And the pub is definitely the answer.

Now, which one?

SkinnyLegsAndAll Mon 15-Jul-13 22:54:26

And can I put in an early request for the September date? Can we do Friday the 13th?

Throughgrittedteeth Mon 15-Jul-13 22:58:49

Ooooo Friday 13th spooooky grin

GinAndIt Tue 16-Jul-13 19:21:39

theA14 Wed 17-Jul-13 19:05:49

Hello, I'd like to come along on the 2nd of August, please if I may.

theA14 Wed 17-Jul-13 19:08:20

Oh I forgot about my local board identity name! I'm also known as Auntie Bulgaria in big Mumsnet, in case I've chatted to anyone in local pre name-change. smile
