A nice night gents, sorry I stood at th bar chatting. Not many lotus cars but still good lotus chat. See you next month
Don't want to rock the boat but I simply can't believe how busy the BiH was last night - a damp Monday night in Sept and the pub was packed.
Sadly not by many Lotus folk but probably just as well if we are going to struggle to get a table booked for those that do turn up.
If @Buddsy 'Dad taxi' is going to cause regular interference and get in the way of him turning up, do we need to consider a different night (would that make any difference?) I don't know the pub well enough to have a feel for popularity on other nights. BTW I am definitely not having a pop at the pub here, it is great to see a place so busy - I just think that if we can't get ourselves organised to know in advance how many folk might turn up, maybe we need to be somewhere with less competition? Using the forum isn't really working out - only 3-4 people confirmed attendance, for which it would be pointless booking a table IMO, especially if 8 + people then turn up. I know not everyone was eating last night but I still think we need to help the pub out a bit here
I'm not saying more people isn't great coz is absolutely is - just think we need to work on comms a bit more?

The people who turn up and don't mention that they are on here, can you not ask them to mention that they are coming on here in advance? That way, you'll know numbers in advance. It only takes them a second and if they understand it's logistically important perhaps they'll take that second. I assume they are members on here as they know the meet is happening?
Events do even have an RSVP facility so it's as simple as clicking 'yes' to say they're coming. The facilities are all here.

Sorry guys, would have been difficult make the meet anyway, but must confess it slipped my memory. Can we not set up some form of email or text reminder ? When the meet was mentioned or discussed on the old regular forum I always got an email notification that someone had put a post on there, which doesn't seem to happen if things are posted in the events calendar here. I found it acted as a reminder plus prompted me to log in to say if we could make it or not. I know it's that time of year as well, but attendance does seem to have tailed off a bit since the meet's have only been mentioned here.
Hope to see you all next time
