Smile SandPit Gathering PT 1

Hey All,

Who might be interested in a Gathering in a sport pub or coffee for this great site's members?

I can organize it and host the talk, agenda for the meeting. Since it is the first time everybody would have to introduce himself/ bla bla bla.

Im taking the initiative because I know how much it sucks to feel lonely in "the Sandpit" and for some of us we cant just go and knock on new people's doors for new friends.

What do you guys say?

Talk and agenda? That sounds very formal

Also check the Entertainer Roulette thread here http://www.expatforum.com/expats/san...te-2013-a.html , you may want to join that?

Sounds good, so long as it's on a weekend.

My weekdays are spent commuting between AUH and DXB unfortunately

er if you want to 'talk' a sport pub is a baaaaad idea! Too noisy, you can't have a conversation in one of those.

Don't bother telling her Pam. OP specifically says 'himself' ....

Pammy forgot to send me the invite... It sounds awesome to go to a 'meeting' with random new people and have an agenda to keep us on task.



I will wait for this to come to fruition. Holding my breathe...

Modified for you...

Anyway, IMHO, to meet in person will forever destroy the "forum personality"...
