Boardie meet up on the Thursday?

Postby ThornDavis » Fri Jun 27, 2014 8:29 am

So is there going to be a chance to meet up with other boardies on the Thursday night? Download has its boardie BBQ, and while I know there's not an 'official' equivalent for Sonisphere I wondered whether there was a way of getting everyone together to say 'hi'. I looked at the Faecebook Camp Loner page, but at 400 attendees, that's completely unmanageable. I don't want to have to interact with anyone I haven't formed an opinion about - I just want a chance to say hi to the folk on here.

Is this something that can even be organised? Can we schedule a meet-up at the left hand corner of the tent during the Kerrang! discotheque?

Me too. Don't think we've ever had an official thing before but the tshirts have always been a good way to spot some boardies while wandering around

OK, so if the boardie folk can wear their tees on the Thursday, I guess all we would need then is a ballpark place/time to meet up Would 8pm onwards at Bohemia work? Is there a better/ more obvious place?

This sounds like a great idea. I do not have a boardie T-shirt but I'll be wearing clothes that aren't black so I should be fairly obvious.

Yeah, I don't have one either - I'm not a total saddo - but my idea was that we could use the people who did have 'em as a kind of mass flag. I don't know though. I feel like getting everyone in the same place may be impossible.

Is a saddo masochist someone who gets no pleasure hurting others?
A kid once said to me “Do you get hangovers?” I said, “To get hangovers you have to stop drinking.

Yes, but I did also suggest that coupled with a few other saddos you might make for a useful signalling device, so it's not like I was being completely disparaging.

A good idea I'd say. Is always nice to put names to faces. Like at the first Sonisphere when they had the Boardie BBQ with Stuart Galbraith, Zac and Team Sonisphere. We all got to go side stage for a band, if you could sort that out for us Thorn, that'd be great.

That's a great idea. Thorn and Zac can work together to get us all side stage for Iron Maiden.

If it's cool to come join the boardie t-shirt party despite not having a boardie t-shirt then count me in!
