I can't say I really thought about that. I assumed that if somebody was interested enough to come along, they'd be interested enough to join a free forum!

Bearing in mind that there will (should) be several thousands of ?s worth of guitars together in one room, it seems to me to be quite important that we all know who we are inviting along. A free-for-all could be a risk. And the other point is that we will all be bringing at least one Tokai or similar type of guitar, so we can try models that we've never previously had the chance to play.

Besides which, half of the point is so that we can meet the people who we regularly chat to on here - as others have said, it would be nice to put a face & voice to the comments and views we read so often.

Any other views on this?

I've no problem with anyone on the forum bringing a friend/partner along, but you've highlighted a potential problem, we don't want word getting out via the forum and 300 uninvited Chavs turning up to paw our guitars!

I'm sure wouldn't happen, but to be on the safe side maybe once the venue & date are sorted we could let each other know by PM, email or phone.

Depending on the date, I'd love to come along. If anybody is driving down from the north west and wants to split the petrol then i'm happy to contribute too.

I work abroad a lot though, so i'd have to be here!

I might well make an appearance. If there is anyone else from the Midlands I'd be happy to split the petrol costs as i am a none driver... If you are all well behaved, I might even bring my green, early 80s, Jazz Bass

OK great, shall we have another count to see who is now interested in coming along? I think it's worth doing even if it's only half a dozen of us. And if somebody would prefer to organise it in the Midlands, I'll drive up for it.

Yes, if it's in London. Would have to look at the transport and accomodation issues if anywhere else before deciding.

Best regards,

That sounds like a fine idea.

Has anyone contacted Tokai UK to see if they'd be willing to support it in any way? maybe sending a sales manager or two down and using it as a chance to promote the current range by having some demo examples available for example?

Just a thought.

Any word on whether this event is likely to go ahead at all? I would love to take part and can bring a ES-130 to the party! Come on folks, we only live once...

Best regards,
Darren/MM

Well I've had a hectic 2008, but should be able to find a bit more time in 2009, I think it would be great to get a few of us together!

We always seem to get hung up on dates and location when we try to arrange something.

OK, how about somewhere in London in March? How many people would be likely to be able to make that? If there are enough, we can pick a day (one Saturday afternoon/early evening?), and agree what part of London would be best.

Or if someone else would prefer to arrange it in the Midlands, that's fine also.

Great idea - I've just mailed them. I'd still love to see this happen too. How far would our London-based forumites be prepared to travel? I've arranged events like this before on a huge UK forum, and the London ones have always been a bit painful to get to for most people. We've done them in Bath (beautiful place, though again a pain to get to), Birmingham (the nightlife was a bit poor where we were, but I guess this would only be a one-day thing), Manchester (a pain for parking, but great otherwise) and Sheffield (the best yet).

If it's in London I'll come!
EDIT: Bath is good too, my niece goes to uni there.

I got a speedy reply from Bob at Tokai UK: as long as it's in a central location and avoids Musikmesse (1-4 April) and the whole of August, they're interested! Sorry Magnus, that rules out London - but it's very easy and pretty cheap to get to Sheffield from there (one direct train - last time I did it, it was ?40 return first class as I booked in advance).
