I've just been painting my fence wondering about a northern chapter. Not
sure where the line is drawn but I assume we also include Dundee? Is there a
self-build show at Harrogate soon? That would provide a backup reason.
You could always take the Amish(*) approach and raise a barn somewhere,
haven't got the space myself but it's a sound principle.
(*) Excepting power tools and PCs and gadgets and alcohol and stuff.
Good grief. I thought that you guys up there were made of sterner
stuff than that.... Is it the impact of that foamy beer that
barmaids have considerable difficulty in pulling? I've noticed that
some of them have arms like treetrunks. :-)

Surely if a meet is organized for uk.d-i-y it ought to be open to

garage/workshop with something, drier, warmer and with walls I can hang
stuff off easily.

Living in Barnsley means Leeds is only a short run up the M1 for me, so
count me in. Plenty of good pubs as well, though the Duck and Drake is at
the wrong end of town for Maxi's. Anyone know what Norman's chinese
restaurant is like? Or any of the other city centre restaurants?
