Hitchin Hive Meetup: UK Hivers check your diary!

in #hive9 months ago

I have been saying for a while that I would organise a meetup and I am finally setting a date.

The meetup will be in Hitchin starting at the train station at 11am on Sunday 23rd July 2023. There is lots of parking at the station or you can get a direct train from London, Cambridge or Peterborough. It is conveniently two stops from where I live.

Hitchin Arcade

The plan is that we will take a walk of an hour or two that will be through some countryside and then into the historic town centre where we can get refreshments at one of the many cafes. Some of the walk will be on the HOOP (Hitchin Outer Orbital Path) passing the site of a Roman villa. There should be plenty of photography opportunities as well as the chance to socialise. I have had help from @daniellemurray in planning the route.

If anyone is not feeling up to the walk they can meet us in town around 1pm. The location will be confirmed later. We can hang out there as long as people want to. It is about a 20 minute walk back to the station.

There are also prizes!

Prizes

I have two signed copies of this graphic novel by @katharsisdrill to give away to random attendees. You just have to turn up to have a chance of winning one.

I cannot guarantee the weather, but I would suggest being equipped with sturdy shoes, a hat, sun cream and a water bottle. Snacks are optional.

The last time I did an event like this was four years ago in Arlesey. That time there were three of us with @adetorrent and @molometer joining me. I would hope for a few more this time and that some people who have not yet joined Hive will come along. They can grill the experienced Hivers to learn about it.

Please let me know if you think you can come.

I expect some people cannot get there, but you can always organise your own event. All you need is to set a date and a location. Let me know and I will publicise it.

Sort:  

Steve, i was talking with @pvmihalache, maybe we see each other for some fish and chips, your place or bedford, in the near future. keep in touch!

Bedford is good for me and I love fish and chips. I'm away for most of next month, but up for meeting otherwise. It's best to give people some notice if you want to set a date. Be sure to let @buzzparty know.

!BEER

On it. I am having few days off in September. If it is not clashing with anyone plans, we can try in September. @buzzparty is from Bedford?

No, they publicise Hive events.


Hey @heruvim1978, here is a little bit of BEER from @steevc for you. Enjoy it!

Did you know that <a href='https://dcity.io/cityyou can use BEER at dCity game to buy cards to rule the world.

I know it's a few days since anyone added to this post, but I thought I'd just pop up and say that I should be able to get to Hitchin this Sunday. "She who must be obeyed" has given me permission to go 😁

Great! There should be a few of us there even if the weather is not looking great. See my next post for more details.

I have a lot going on in July so will need a few days to decide on this one but will try to make it happen!

Would be great to see you, but I hope there will be other opportunities. We need more meetups.

!BEER

Wow that was 4 years ago! Time is weird? The pandemic has screwed with everyone's timeline...well those that survived it anyway.
Hitchen is a nice little town 👍🏼

Time is speeding past and we need to make the most of it. COVID created a bit of a gap in our lives. I hope you used the time well.

That's the understatement of the decade! 😂

I shall have a chat with Mrs N. when she's back from the gymnastics run, but will absolutely attempt to join you. It's about time we personally had a catch up and would be great to meet some Hive peeps (even though I've largely been absent forever).

Would be good to see you again. I'm hoping to build up the local Hive community.

!BEER

Wife has been notified so all being well, I shall be there. Will drive down as so much cheaper and quicker than the train.

Cool. Let's hope for good weather.

Let me check my diary - if I'm free, I'll join you at 1pm 😍

Would be great to see you.

Really looking forward to this!

Me too. Never know how it will go, but I'm sure we can have a nice outing anyway.

!BEER

Hitchin arcade looks lovely! Hope it's a good meet up!

I do wonder what happened to @katharsisdrill. I sent him an email some time ago and never got a reply. Hope he's OK.., I know he's had health problems.

Me too. I'll check on his other sites.

i'm thinking i might be able to make this. Still on? Many coming?

It's still on, but the weather looks iffy. I will confirm some details in my next post. Will be great to meet you.

!BEER

On my way, see you at 11

Looking like a nice day for it.

I can do another, but it will never suit everyone. If you arrange something then tag me and I'll try to get there.

As I understand it, the weather is not very contrasting in Foggy Albion, therefore, ladies and gentlemen can come to a meeting in ordinary clothes, suitable for a social event in the historical part of the city :)
!PIZZA

One would hope for clement conditions in July, but one never knows what the weather gods will bring.

I thought that there are no unpredictable things on Foggy Albion :)
!PIZZA

This is really cool, I hope the meet-up goes well man, it sounds like a lot of fun!

Cheers. It's overdue really. I had been hoping to see some others crop up. We used to have a few in London.

!BEER

I really want to try and get to some meetups, England is only a few quid on a plane. When things settle down over the next year I'll have more time on my hands to be able to attend Hive events.

I was hoping to go to Hive fest this year since I couldn't make last years, but I don't know if I could make it to Mexico.

!PIMP !LUV


You must be killin' it out here!
@killerwot just slapped you with 1.000 PIMP, @steevc.
You earned 1.000 PIMP for the strong hand.
They're getting a workout and slapped 1/1 possible people today.

Mexico is a bit of a trek and I'm not going. You need something over your way.

A walk sounds like a fun start to a meet up. I've got a lot on in July but will see if I can move something around especially as Hitching is doable in a day.
