UK - South Coastal hub for Dudes Day
« on: February 24, 2010, 03:24:53 PM »
I've started this thread in response to discussions started elsewhere:

May have to start a new thread for this one. Klaus Korters and myself have been mates for years, and I've just sent him a message about "Dudes Day" perhaps we could have a local chapter meeting (has Pompey got a bowling alley?).

The only one I know of is in Gunwharf, but, much like my local in Fareham it's crowded and loud, but it is larger and has quiet shady drinking corners and pool tables!

And yes, starting a new thread is good idea, try and see if we can make a South Coastal hub for Dudes Day  8)

Basically trying to arrange some sort of Dudeist gathering for at least the Hampshire (or even Portsmouth and surrounding) area if not the south coast (not intentionally excluding anyone as all welcome) on the Day of the Dude.

So your homework (should you choose to accept it) is to discuss and debate:

Can we do it, yes we can.

Portsmouth is fantastically central, and the main station here takes trains in from the south west, south east, Wales and London, and ferries from the Isle of Wight and Gosport.

The local alley is right next to said station and is part of a shopping centre, so has ample parking, as well as pool tables in the bar area.

And, if it all gets too crowded and noisy at any point, I know a nice quiet pub hidden around a few corners outside.

Come fly the Dudeist flag on March 6th, chill in good company  8)

Dude I chill for a livin' 8) no really I do.
Hell yeah this is a highly polished idea, meekon5 and myself also know a pub where we'd fit in with no raised eyebrows.

Sounds good!  ;D

I'm hoping we can get a few more people in.   Only got seven days to find more southern Dudes.  Otherwise, I'm sure we can have a good holy-day with just the three of us  :)

can i post this event at the dudespaper? is it official?

i'm hoping to get my new mailing list software up and running asap to remind people of the day of the dude. my previous mail server provider got all reactionary on me a few weeks ago when i tried to send out mails to 70 thousand people. i'd like to let people know about any upcoming events before it's too late.

i myself am looking forward to the Wii bowling tournament on the beach in thailand, preceeded by the movie, suceeded by a creedence jam. hopefully there will be proper dudeists in attendance, and not just a bunch of ravers crying out for techno music!

Forumdude post away even if it's only me, Ed, and Klaus, we will be there to honour the Dude on Dudes Day.

We may even achieve a few incriminating pictures.

You can always give my email out to fellow Dudes, the door to my spiritual bungalow is always open.  It's available on my profile page here.

Although you'll forgive me for not publisising it here in the open, but I know this forum suffers from undudely invasions one in a while, and I already get enough spam in my inbox.

hey ed,
i'll post it at the dudespaper article if you don't mind - i've got a script that obfuscates emails so that spambots can't read it. there'll be a link that says " contact rev. ed" and clicking on it will open up a new compose email window.

thanks!

Good to have a few more people on board!

Just pop me an email (take a look at my profile for the address) and we can swap numbers and such.

At the moment, I'd say we're probably make it a late morning thing, especially if people are coming from further afield, although if that is the case I might book us some lane time, because the darned place'll get crowded on a Saturday.  But, of course, the drinking is all day :D

I won't even begin to firm anything until mid-week, because, well, life's just too uncertain at this time :)

If you're coming by car, check routes into Portsmouth and head for the Harbour/Gunwharf Quays.  By train, look for Portsmouth Harbour station.  By Ferry, well, if you're that local, you'll know ;)

Good thinking Ed. I was thinking more early afternoon (1400hrs) perhaps, give the other Dudes time to get to Pompey and not have to rush in the AM.

I'd love to attend guys but I have to feed the monkey...would love a trip down to Pompey (I'm in east Anglia) so maybe if this successful you could organise another date for kahlua n voddy n bowling....

I'm gonna have to celebrate after work with a couple of drinks and a special movie. ;)

Peace guys...
