For the rest of us its like the PUF equivalent of the Eurovision Song Contest, it come round every year, we hear a lot about it and the people who go there seem to get great enjoyment from it.

How many to times have you lot been going and why dont we see pictures of you there? Are you all Goths? I can quite imagine Alan with a few facial piercings.

It has alot to do with the beer and the fish and chips!

I'm always amazed that more people don't come. It's such good fun.

It always looks fun Gareth, but this year it was Glasgow. Maybe next year I'll make it if funds allow.

First meet was April 2009, this Novembers will be the 5th meet and its on the 5th

And we have posted pics of one another in between the others, this year we'll have to sort out a group shot, as for piercings I do have the one in my left ear but doubt I could get anything through it now.

Black dress is no problem Ted, its the size 12 stilettos they play havoc with my arthritis

It seems some of the goths may be gathering link. However I think the Pentax user gathering is as per the thread title.

I just hope weve picked the right week or we'll be spending more time in the pubs and coffee shops

The waistline could, but would the trouser waist.
