WYLUG, the West Yorkshire Linux User Group, has had long standing monthly meetings – the second Monday of every month, usually a talk or two at the University of Leeds, then down to the Victoria pub afterwards for geeky chattery – but last month, we decided to try arranging social meet-ups on the other fortnight.
We had the first one at the Victoria last month – seven people attended – and the second last night at the Scarbrough Hotel, with ten people dropping in and out over the course of the evening. It would perhaps be overly presumptuous to say “a good time was had by all” but I can safely say “a good time was had by all the people I asked and who weren’t lying”.
Like after WYLUG talks, the conversations were varied (ie, not just about linux) but usually geeky, and progressively louder and more heated (but in a good, excited way) as more beer was consumed during the course of the evening. Lots of fun though, and a good laugh.
I’ll arrange a date for the next one ahead of November’s WYLUG talk (12th November) – it’ll probably be around the 25th/26th November – and if you’re in the West Yorks area and of the geeky persuasion, you should come down. :)
