Those gloriously omniscient fellows at the Met Office say Saturday will be sunny all day and warm as well (17C). Since they've never yet been wrong, it looks like we're set for Saturday.

We'd love to go and bash heads in the park :twisted:
But we're of to Cosmaston to trade and have fun all weekend.
Yes work does let me out at weekends now and then.... :roll:
Have fun..........

It's now looking like I may have problems turning up this weekend. I'll try and get there if it's still feasible.

So see you there then!

I've changed from not going to undecided for tomorrow- it depends on if I get into the mood to go clubbing tonight.

It looks like it's going to be really hot. Water will be as essential as gloves and mask.

So we are 3 to show up tmr then.

Hope we manage to find each other!!!!

As I have no idea what the park looks like any specific meeting areas or something around where we said we would meet?

In my best Obi-Wan voice: 'use the link, Luke!'

http://maps.google.co.uk/maps?f=q&hl=en&mrt=all&ie=UTF8&ll=51.535725,-0.15044&spn=0.012253,0.013647&t=h&z=16

That's a Google Maps satellite view of the north-east corner of the park, next to the zoo. There's an open space there, so we should be fairly visible to each other.

Hey Obi Wan...

I used the link but it only shows a huge place with no pin and we are only 3 people who have never seen each other... I can try using the force but don't think it will work...

:lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

I am asking if there is anything in that place we can set as a meeting point...

Coffee shop or smt...

How about everyone meets at Camden Town Tube at 1:45pm/2pm

Sounds good to me!

See you there then!

I won't be going by the Camden Town station, so that would suck for me.

On that map, the thing in the center is a triangle bounded by Outer Circle, a path (to the south) and the zoo (to the west). It's actually a small triangle - you can see the individual trees. I'll stand in the middle of the triangle with a fencing mask and a shinai. That should be fairly hard to miss. I'll be there about 1:45-2pm.

I didn't go clubbing last night. I'll meet you in the park.

And the number was 5!!! And they all had fun and they all want to go again!!!

It was a great 2 hours, with a lot of fun and sun!!!

Maybe we should do this more often!!!

Yeah, that was a hell of a lot of fun. I definitely need better gloves... lacrosse gloves here I come. As for doing it more often, heck yeah, I think we could even make it a regular thing.

Thanks for showing me a bit of backsword, Chris. That was particularly fun.

For anybody considering coming along next Saturday, the location was quite good. We went to the north end of the field, under some trees, isolated from everyone except a few joggers (and KENDO BOY!), and got no undue attention.

Same place, same time next week?

And thanks to the SG1/SG8 guys for the intro to Longsword, it was fun. Think I'll stick to baskethilts though. I like my fingers too much.

i have a flight to catch (apparantly) in like 3 hours to Italy. I believed/was told it was next weekend but it isn't.

This is what happens when you let a girl book things.
Meh

So options were an Attractive girl or you guys so......

See you next week

Is there going to be more than the two of us?

If not, I'll stay at home.
