There are I belive a few people in the area. I live in Bedford, so at some stage we could meetup (very busy at the moment)

I do not know if there is a local Pentax user group, somebody will tell us if there is.

There are local areas that could be good for a meet i.e. Ampthill park, Houghton House, Willen Lake etc. etc.

Regards
Colin

There isn't a regular group as such, but we did have a meeting up at Stowe last year. There are a few of us from around these parts on the forum, might be time to have another get together in the not-too-distant future?

Well if anyone has any suggestions for a date and a venue then we may as well put them in this thread. I'd be quite happy to go to Stowe again as it's such a picturesque venue, but equally I'd be happy to go somewhere new. What've you got in MK that's worth a day out?

As for dates, Sundays work best for me and I know the same holds true for Danny (Unlocker) and Fiona (Utopia Poppy) who I'm sure would both come along.

If there is enough notice of it and I and big brother (he of Concorde fame) are not booked up then I might be able to make it. Time I visited the old fart anyway.

A bit vague I know and you don't need to take account of me, but can you keep the discussion on the forum, not in PMs please?

Don't worry Gwyn, I'm sure we'll keep it all out in the open.

I'm pretty close too although between the archaeological society and an American girlfriend I tend to be away/busy a fair bit.

We're always up for a Sunday meet, as long as we're not booked, we'll be there!

We're National Trust members, so anywhere we haven't done would be great, but open to all ideas!

Got anything in mind?

Much as I'd like to join you all again, I don't have a free Sunday until August, and I'm sure those Sundays will be booked up before too long too.

I'll keep an eye on this thread though, just in case...
