Upgrade today to remove Google ads and support TLF.

2nd Thursday has always been the usual night for Herts / Essex /Cambs Group, in summer anyway.    Herts / Essex / Cambs Meet

Seems a bit strange to compete with the neighbours.

Sorry to hear that Philip. Unfortunately though the Monday evenings were generally supported by a core 3,4 or 5. As Im sure you are well aware there is another Lotus Group which was understood to be Club Lotus on a Thursday. Turned out it wasnt exclusively Club Lotus. Changing the meeting day was discussed when we at BIH around Nov'18. There is also significant discussion on TLF. The Thursday group is well supported, events are organised,I.E. runs out and it seemed ludicrous for a group with the same interest to meet on a Thursday and another (Generally speaking much smaller group) to meet on the Monday of the same week. I can be accused of driving the change I suppose but I have checked and I can not find one piece of input from yourself on this subject. In fact I can only find input from you in June '17 when you attended, When our Netherland friends came in Apr'18 you couldnt make it (Appreciate you were working) which was well supported by the look of the pictures and the "meeting Elisa" subject in which you said you would be there. I don't know if you made it. In my experience you will never ever please everyone but what I do find very disappointing is your comment which I have seen on both here and TLF. If you are not happy or have an opinion it might have been better to comment and give your opinions at the beginning of the year.

Hi @PhilW

Haven't been able to make the last few meets for a variety of reasons but I hope to be along - I assume it is still 7.00pm?

Just my 2p worth on the change of evening - of the small regular crowd over the last 18 months or so, I suspect that very few are compromised by any perceived competition from neighbouring groups and it is unfortunate if anyone is. You did consult on this over a period of time prior to the change and the general consensus supported the move if I recall. I agree that a larger pool of regular support, with a little more 'doing stuff' is a better approach - it is a shame that for me personally, a Thursday isn't always going to be convenient but I'll try to continue supporting when I can.

Cheers

Ant


Is the price for that bit in Yen or £?
