...Damnit, I was going to do that... until I read the ""If you have a weird prop, I want it to be completely natural as to why you have it with you" bit and realised that I can't easily explain why I had 4" nails with me...

Well, someone taught me a really easy self worker, and I will be looking into some other things.

Will bring the nails as well though, so I can show off. Only 3" though...

For the sake of the poor newb, does a deck of cards count as something natural?

I would judge "Yes" until the bar staff tell us not to have money on the table when using them...

I'm available for any time between 10am and 10pm (thanks to a combination of spending as little as possible due to circumstances, and friends giving me a lift to and from their work) but there's not been a defined time as of yet.

I still have to work on a self-worker...

OK, 3pm it is.

At least I will have 5 hours to practice whatever I can find as a selfworker...

Been doing a lot of (unrelated) research this week, so the best I have is one silly self worker and nails...

Bit late, I know, but not feeling very well, so am going to have to opt out for tomorrow... Sorry! :(

Ms Hoedt: Shame, but if you change your mind you know when and where.
Mr Beard: Don't forget it this time.

That went fairly well. Turnout was a bit low (Mr Beard and Mr Me) but a fairly entertaining time was had, especially when the stag party watched Beardy bamboozle them and bought us drinks.

Beardy is as usual a master.

Number of forks defiled: 2
Number of cards signed: 1 (Signature: "Your Name")
Number of drinks bought by the participants - 2
Pool Cues made to appear - 1
Number of times staff told us about the "No Money on Table" rule - 0 (a first for the Bank Statement, surely!)
Regrets - 1 (On leaving the pub, walked past what looked like a hen party whom mentioned they were going to the same place...)

Apologies all. Have not been on here for a while and only just saw this. Next time perhaps!

Anyone want to suggest a date for the next meeting? I know Beardy has some restrictions.

We also need an attempt at a theme. I have a few ideas of complete abstractness, but I'm sure someone else can do something better...

(Now watching Impossible? on Channel 5. Fun.)
