I had a decent hour and a half drive to water gardens to find it had been shut down with no local knowledge I didn't know where the backup would be and as a first meet...real disappoint... definitely need backup location for next time and be sure security knows...also I know SAU call up the local cops and tell em there is a meet on and a few details as a bit of common courtesy, so far I haven't heard of any of their official meets being stormed with yellow stickers...
Would have been good to know of the 2nd meet point.
Thanks to those who organised. Seems like it was a good meet. Please leave negative comments about the police outside of the forum as we encourage the involvement of local law enforcement here. If we understand them then it helps them understand us. It doesn't seem like anyone was defected or that the police asked you guys to leave so there's nothing to complain about. I'm especially glad to hear everyone behaved as well. Kudos.
