Machynlleth meetups


#21

Arrrgh! I was just coming on here to tell you that I won’t be able to make it tomorrow! I’ll have to change that to “I didn’t make it last time because I can’t read a calendar”. And annoyingly, I can’t make it on 9th May either :frowning:

(I’ve put it in my calendar for 6th June. Is that right?)


#22

Hi,

I’ve put it in my diary. Still in Siop Alys at 10:clock1230: ??


#23

Hia pawb

Second Saturday in the month, 10.30 onwards :smile:

I will be on my way back from bootcamp the previous Saturday, which is the Machynlleth Comedy weekend, but if anyone wants to arrange a meet up for that weekend too, I will gladly come along if I can make it, e.g. Sunday morning.

Helen


#24

I’ll be in Machynlleth on that Sunday (I’m seeing Rob Newman at 12:45), so I’d be up for a meetup on the Sunday morning if there are any takers. Or afternoon. ‘Arranging’ sounds a bit scary, but I can meet someone in a coffee shop. Anyone around?


#25

I can be there Sunday morning or afternoon. Whichever is best for other people, since I am very local.


#26

Hi Helen. It looks like it might be just you and me. If you still want to meet, I’d be happy to have a coffee at about 11:30. I totally understand though if you’d rather not, since you’ve got the meetup the following week anyway and will have just got back from a week’s Bootcamping. You might prefer to have a rest!


#27

I’ll be in Mach this weekend, and free at 1130 on Sunday if you’re still available for meeting…

James


#28

11.30 in Siop Alys -l’ll be there!


#29

See you both tomorrow!


#30

Same here. It might be an idea to work out the dates of the next few meetings with a calendar, and then put up a list here.

And of course, we should do the same in the Oxford group … :slight_smile: I’ll get right onto, er, thinking about it… :slight_smile: )


#31

Quick reminder: the next Machynlleth meetup is this Saturday, 9th May at 10.30 in Siop Alys. :smile:

The June meetup is on 13th June.


#32

Hello, sorry to have missed you.

I knew Mach’s 3G signal wasn’t great, but I was also wifi-less for the bulk of the weekend so I wasn’t able to get online to find out the meeting details.

On the plus side, I did laugh at some jokes…in Welsh!


#33

We wondered where you were. We also tried to get onto the forum to see if you’d left a message, but no signal!
Maybe next year I’ll brave some of the Welsh language shows - I imagined myself blank-faced in a sea of hysterical laughter and thought I’d give it a miss until I can do more than struggle through the ‘who’s there?’ side of a knock-knock joke.


#34

A man told me that the signal’s not too bad normally, but then the comedy festival arrives and the population of Mach doubles for the weekend…

I was blank faced last year. Slightly more laughter this year. Did you know there’s a place called Pwll Coch? You can guess where they went with that


#35

One of my goals in Welsh is to understand the comedy. I usually follow along fine until the punchline arrives then I totally lose my understanding. Everyone else is laughing their socks off and I’m wondering what it’s all about. But I WILL get there!


#36

Reminder:
Next Machynlleth meet-up this Saturday (13th June) 10.30 in Siop Alys (Owain Glyndwr Institute), next to the Senedd-dy.

See you there! They reserve a table for us but, if in doubt, I will be the one looking hyper, since it will be my fifth cuppa in Siop Alys this week! :smiley:

Last week I was in there being served by Derek Brockway - one of he challenges for Cariad@Iaith starting on S4C this Sunday!


#37

Sorry, car’s broken down. Won’t make it today. Apologies for the late notice.


#38

Thanks for letting us know. Hope it’s fixed soon and not too expensive.

@dee We probably won’t have an August meet up, because it clashes with the final Saturday of the Eisteddfod.


#39

There will be an extra meetup in Machynlleth this Thursday afternoon (13th August)! We will be meeting at 2pm in Siop Alys for coffee/tea and chat and then going to have a look round the Owain Glyndwr Senedd-Dy next door. All Welcome!


#40

Since a few people have mentioned (@paulinehomer, @elizabeth_j_corbett_) that the second Saturday this month clashes with the ‘Rustbuster’ course in Dolgellau, I think it would be a good idea to move the Mach meetup to the following Saturday (19th September). This will then tie-in with the Owain Glyndwr festival :grinning: , which starts at 1pm on that day - we can spend the whole day siarad Cymraeg!

So Mach September meet up: Saturday 19th September, 10.30am, Siop Alys.
@dee Please mention in the weekly email. Thanks.
