Much warmer in Miami!
I am in Belleview, FL which is about 180 miles north of Miami. I know what cold is, however, I am originally from RI and MA. I have been in Fl 23 years. Many times I had to get go outside and start the car before work and let it warm up for 1/2 hour. I have seen ice on all sides of the car and have to use a ice scraper to clear the windshield. I go back to RI every two or three years for meetings, but of course I only book in the summer. My first year down here I went for a ride on my motorcycle in Nov. and sent a picture back on my bike in short sleeves.

I would prefer Lunch too ! Say meet up by 2 pm? Or earlier somewhere else?

PS: Should we also create a thread in Watercooler section and see if there are any more takers?

Re: Bournemouth/South West England Groups ??

At the moment we have me in Oxford, Gizmo in Newbury and Paul in Bournmouth, so unless Penfold is going to join us, it seems to me that Newbury might be a closer location. Happy to leave it in Bath, just running it up the flagpole, see who salutes it!

2pm is OK with me but happy to make it a bit earlier, say 1pm. It will be busy so suggest we do need to book a table.

Can move this post to the water cooler - but I don't know how

Re: Bournemouth/South West England Groups ??

Just created a New thread - AWF - Christmas meal

Newbury could be an alternative. I have never been there, so should be an interesting trip

In the thread I have mentioned the tentative idea as Bath - Hare & Hound pub 14 December 2013, 1pm..

The joke is on me. It got down to 34% F last night, but that's ok as I am not real fond of Spanish food. However, that gives me a great idea. Lets start Access World Forum meals all over the world. Anybody near Ocala, FL interested I am willing to drive up to 60 miles.

Re: Bournemouth/South West England Groups ??

A very Nice meeting...

Good company and good food.

The way I remember it we didn't stop talking!

It would have been a very interesting meeting for anyone with an interest in MS Access however, anyone else would have died of boredom I reckon.

One particular conversation I remember was about the on current event of a main form, which operated on subforms contained within the main form and the different ways of tackling the issues that arise in this situation. Two completely different methods were discussed and this just reinforced my observation that there is always more than one way of doing something in MS Access, none better than the other, just down to user preference and experience.

More MS Access based exchanges of course, we also discussed hobbies, and work.

3 hours of non stop discussion, and I'm sure we only scratched the surface and could have talked for another 3 hours; so another meeting is definitely on the cards for me.

If anyone wants to attend the next meeting then please indicate by suggesting a suitable location, date and time.

Location: I'm thinking London, or a northern city, depends on the location of the majority. Time: I'm flexible, weekday, weekend, lunchtime or evening suitable.
