Any kent sax players interested in doing a public met up for a coffee (or beer!) so we can talk shop, bounce ideas of each other, supports each others bands/gig/ jam sessions, and just for general fellowship?
Just moved to Kent in septemeber and don't really know anyone yet, well, no one that is into the same things as me!
what do you think?

Oh I saw coffee and biscuit and thought - I'm off there. Kent too far for me but I believe there are a few Kentish folk on here. My pal lives near Rochester and is a sax lover - keep trying to get her to join the forum. Will giver her a shout as she may well be up for a kent meet. :)

I think it is a great idea. I can see an East Midlands periodic meet up happening (if the others agree). Find a nice central pub!

Agreed Kent is a bit far for a coffee... prefer mine warm.... However if anything happens East of Nottingham and north of Cambridge I might just manage it.

The first smart-a** to suggest Hartlepool is getting a smack :) even though it meets my criteria

OMG! My overriding memory of Skeggy is the mud when the tide is out.

Yes, but I was thinking that was just something I had imagined and it couldn't possibly be a genuine memory.

Has Skeggy still got the fair and the WQall of Death? Spent many happy hours there when taking clients on the High Performance Course.

There is still a fair there but I'm sure the wall of death is gone. When I was a kid I always wanted to have a go on the bikes on the wall of death - how strange a child I must have been (still am say many). Mind you I haven't been to Skeg for a few years but I do remember the crazy golf course.

East Midlands meet - all welcome to come to mine - darling husband is a whizz with the coffee pot and biscuits :)

There was also a youngster who rode a two stroke Suzuki, whilst the elder rode a big Yank, possibly an Indian. Always took great delight in throwing the kickstarter on the floor after starting. Both bikes had left hand throttles and the young 'un put a new rear tyre on the biggie with loads of Swarfega. Forgot to wash it all off and the main man fell off on the 45 degree transition angle and broke his leg.

I must be getting old.
