While most/all of us on this form are pretty decent 'Virtual' friends. How many of you have are actually friends, or have met with others on this Forum?

I'd like to meet some peeps in Perth from here. 8)

Well blow me down wind

I know you fly a 11.9 yellow RRD and have a fetish for dolphin steaks.

Been looking for you, eppo, f-12, ray and other dudes but you never seem to be at the same bat beach at the same bat time on the same bat day. I do know a couple of the cupboard boys on here. no one wants to be my friend even me mum hates me and keeps giving me these diet pills (local topical joke for the cricket followers).

What we need to do is have a day at the beach bring ya spades and buckets and beach balls.

March is the month for down winders last year a few off us got together for a scabs to sorrento run approx 10 kms.

I propose weather premiting that a 1pm kick off at Brighton beach car park the first Saturday in march kite to sorrento and then back to scabs for a few beers/BBQ who’s in?

Hi Ron, long time no post, how's it going down the Wirrel.

Off out to Cape Hatteras in June for a three weeker should be good, are you coming up to Fleetwood in the near future.

Interesting thread does everyone know you are 3 ft tall posh scouser.

Is'nt it only for those who travel a lot, that this is possible ?

Your local mates are those you trash or praise on your "native" forums, right ?
And we also use the native forums to meet - usually putting posts and phone numbers up where and who are going where, the next day - so we can all meet and be there at the same time at the same spots, or maybe get/give a lift so we don't waste gazoline, and its more fun to talk on the way too.
This is so good - and you get to meet a lot of new friends this way - who joins because they have seen on the net there will be action at a specific spot.

So for me this is a virtual forum - but the inputs are much better than the "native" forums because you get every opinion from over the world.

There are a couple guys here from Perth, that I have never met, and use this forum, shunter, and I think F12 Flyer.

Would be cool to meet someobody from overseas while they were on holiday.
