Planning the next Philofaxy Meet Up

The last Saturday of May should have been our latest Meet Up, but for obvious reasons it had to be cancelled several weeks ago.

What about the next one? Yes there will be a next one.. but I don't know precisely when yet.

As some of you know we became grand parents about three weeks ago, so we are keen to visit UK when we can.

At the time of writing this, there are still travel restrictions in France stopping us from going beyond 100km from our house, that doesn't get us to the channel ports, which are over 400km from where we live here in France.

Then there is the enforced isolation, as I type this UK will be introducing a 14 day quarantine period for anyone arriving in UK, and then on our return home we would have to self-isolate for 14 days as well. This of course makes it impractical to travel to UK even if we were not restricted to the 100 km limit.

Once all of the above restrictions are lifted, for the meet up to happen we have to find a venue. At present Vapiano are not open, all of their restaurants in London are closed.

Whilst we all patiently wait for life to get back to normal, I am holding 'Virtual Meet Ups' on Skype, not the same I know, but better than nothing.

Once we are go for another meet up I will of course post an update. However, it might be relatively short notice compared to normal.

Keep healthy and stay safe.

A Date For Your Diary - Sunday 7 June 2020

Given the success and the number of people that took part in the last  'Virtual Meet Up' we are going to run another one.

When? - Sunday 7 June at the following time:
  • Los Angeles 8:00 am, 
  • Denver 9:00 am
  • Dallas 10:00 am, 
  • New York 11:00am, 
  • London 4:00 pm

Do not worry if you aren't available at the start of one of our sessions each one lasts 1-2 hours so pop up when you are available and say hello.

Where? - an on-line chat using Skype. with voice and video (if you wish)

Join the chat here: https://join.skype.com/A85fEyS7HPUP

What do I need? - just a micro-phone and some head phones(in ear phones work fine) and a free Skype account. Using headphones or earphone reduces 'echo' on the call. Video is optional, but a few of us will be on video as well.

Who - All of you... Join the chat here: https://join.skype.com/A85fEyS7HPUP  Come and listen if you don't want to chat.  What do we talk about? Filofax stuff... but anything else as well. It's like long lost friends meeting up for coffee and a catch up.. but don't worry if you have never joined in before... you are an old friend too!

If you have any questions you want to ask then please let us know in the group or before we start.

Come and join in the fun, even if you only pop in to say hello... but don't be afraid to join in the discussion.

If you need any assistance setting up Skype, please pop a comment in this post and I will try and help you get one line. Skype is free for computer to computer calls....

Here is my post on how to improve your Skype audio with headphones or a headset.

Hope to be chatting with you on Sunday 7 June 2020.
