    I broke the lens on my phone so I couldn't take any. My GF took a few. When she recovers , I'll post them.

    Simon took several. I'm sure he'll post when he can. He had to work today the poor bastard.

    Other members took some too. We were just short of closing down the bar, so everyone is no doubt a bit tired today.

    I will say that a good time was had by all. We met at The Pub and had drinks. Then we had appetizers and drinks. Then we had dinner and drinks. After dinner we went to Lafayette's to listen to the band and have more drinks.

    The company was very pleasurable and the conversation was very interesting.

    A HUGE thank you to everyone that turned up, it was really great to see both Brian and Ken again and also to meet up with members I hadn't met before. A thoroughly enjoyable evening, despite being jet lagged from almost circumnavigating the globe over the last 2 days...

    Special thanks to Brian for being my US postal service and Im glad I got the opportunity to return the favour. (dont forget to send me the address!). Here are the photos I took:

    Earlier in "The Pub" before Neil (LookWhoItIs) arrived:


    Brian and partner Lisa


    Jim and wife Deanna


    Neil has arrived!


    I sat next to Jim (EXPLORER) and could have listened to his collecting tales all night!


    Neil (LookWhoItIs), Kerry (Sentinel) and Ken (barlow)


    Jim, Me and Kerry


    Kerry, Me and Neil


    Me and Br!an


    Me and Ken

    When you move from sharing posts or messages in forums online to sharing time and tales with some very interesting and fun people who have familiar interests always provides for a fabulous experience.
    Last night was one of those experiences with great individuals who could relate to our collecting obsessions way more understanding than many we know who just look at us as "strange" when we talk of King.
    We were glad to finally meet a few new people face to face and always enjoy the others we have shared time with before....
    Yes it was a great time with a great group!
    We shall not cease from exploration and the end of all our exploring
    will be to arrive where we started and know the place for the first time.

    Sounds like a fun night! Love the photos. Seeing our collector friends getting together like this always makes me happy.

    I'm planning to go if possible.

    I recall from another thread that quite a few people like the idea of a Vegas meet up.

    We need a firm date(s), and then I will start a Las Vegas dedicated thread.

    June 6th is a Monday.
