Christmas Meal, 19th December 2013
According to the usual schedule, this was originally planned for the 17th of December. However, more people are able to attend on a Thursday for this meeting.
On the 19th of December in previous years:
- Robert Urich (Jake Spoon in Lonesome DOVE) was born in 1946
- Matthew Waterhouse (FLEW in the Tardis as Adric) was born in 1961
- Jennifer Beals (Star of Night OWL and Turbulence 2: Fear of FLYING) was born in 1963
- The last manned lunar FLIGHT, Apollo 17 returned to Earth in 1972
- Jake Gyllenhaal (Donnie Darko features a PLANE crash) was born in 1980
- The Jules Rimet Trophy (which has WINGS) was stolen in 1983
- Michael Clarke (drummer with the BYRDS and the FLYING Burrito Brothers) died in 1993
- Desmond Llewelyn (responsible for a few FLYING gadgets as Q) died in 1999
So we're obviously going to:
The Bristol Flyer 96 Gloucester Road Bishopston Bristol BS7 8BN
The booking is for 7pm, but it wouldn't hurt to turn up a bit early. There's a channce that we may be able to add more people to the booking. If you want to come, but you're not already on the list, please let me (email@example.com) know what you want from the following list ASAP, and I'll attempt to extend the booking: http://www.theflyerbristol.co.uk/pdf/theflyerbishopston-festive_menu.pdf
Come along to meet other local Perl Mongers, eat, drink and talk about vaguely Perl-related topics.
Newcomers are always welcome; we promise not to bite. If you don't know what the humans in the group look like, look for the camels (which look like this), or the Perl-related T-shirt worn by Peter. Bear in mind that we're a fairly small group, and people often turn up late, so don't be put off if you can't find us straight away.
Social meets are usually held at 7pm on the 3rd Tuesday of each month, alternating between Bristol and Bath. While the schedule is fixed, the precise location within each city isn't, and is generally decided on pretty late, though we do try to get it sorted out at least a week ahead of time.
