^Scottish Edinburgh 10 Year Meet And Curry
Ten years ago (on Thursday*) the inaugural H2G2 (Hitch Hikers Guide to the Galaxy) Scottish Researchers Group meet up happened. We met under the Scott Monument although I was a little late having come the whole way from Northern Ireland that morning to be there.
A lot of water has passed under the bridge since then. SRG members have fallen in love with each other, fallen out of love, there have been weddings, handknottings and bairns. However, we at least are re-enacting that first contact by meeting in the same place, under the Scott Monument with at least five of the original attendees towels in hand.
From then only two things will be the same as from that first day. A volatile, clear liquid will be partaken in various forms and a log, the tradition first started on a scrap of paper in that first meeting will be kept, added to by anyone and later be deciphered. As tradition dictates if it is in the log IT HAPPENED.
However, there will also be a hashtag and I may be taking live into my hands by putting the live feed up here.
* Though then it was a Saturday.
