Morning all.

 

After a discussion on another thread that deviated slightly off topic (my apologies) we thought it was about time to have a meet and greet. At this stage just looking at who would been keen to do something. I was thinking something like Brew Union (for their awesome tap beer selection) on a Friday or Saturday night would be a good neutral place to meet. Any other suggestions or ideas are more than welcome. Of course this is open to all GZ members and partners, so if you feel like making the trip to the Mighty Manawatu, come join us! Dates to be determined at some time in the future hahahaha.

Thanks for arranging this; I'm keen, though ideally not in the next two weekends (I'm busy/away). Other than that, I'm happy with any day/time - could even be a nice way to while away a cold and rainy Sunday afternoon.

 

Agree, Brew Union would be an ideal venue (evidence that big-city sophistication has reached the provinces, however slowly!).

Hi all,

 

I'm interested. For me, best time would be a Friday (or some other day) after work... I work in PN, but live in Marton. Brew Union is fine.

Well to be fair to the previous thread, we have now discovered that a bargain attracts PNers like moths to a flame. #palmyproud

 

 

 

Capital idea, keen as well for a Friday, Saturday, or a cheeky Sunday afternoon pint.

 

Friday after work at Brew Union sounds like a winner. I may even have an entertainment book voucher for some nibbles...

Righto, sounds like a Friday is the way to go (and convenient for those with children that have Saturday sports). Dates that are good for me are the 28th of this month or the 12th of July. Any other dates in mind?

 

 

 

***edited to show the correct date of the 28th. Good spotting @shinychrome *****

I'm good for those dates (assuming you meant the 28th and 12th) as well

Forgot to reply that either the 28th or 12th work fine for me; hopefully the bump will alert/remind any other PN/Manawatu members of this idea...

Thanks for the interest everyone. I'll pencil in the 28th of  this month as the date then. Realised the 12th of July is during the school holidays and may not be suitable for those who wish to attend but haven't said so as yet. Can I get an idea of numbers i.e will you be bringing a partner? Reason being that Brew Union gets busy on a Friday night and booking a table inside is essential. If we can get this sorted in the next few days I can give them a call and book the table.

 

Cheers!

Hey @chevrolux we're going for the 28th of June as the date and meeting at Brew Union on Broadway Ave P North. Not sure I mentioned a time so let's say 4:30pm onwards.

Any more interested parties? @loismustdye I know you're always keen for a cold beverage or 2 😁. I'll leave this open till lunchtime tomorrow in terms of number attending so I can call Brew Union and book a table.
