    Dear Westralians

    I know I've only been around this forum for around a year (and only wet shaving for a 18 months) but I'm going to be so bold as to suggest we have a meet up. I know I'm sick of being jealous of South Australia and the "East" with all their meetup shenanigans. We can do this too, surely! I've met @TomG and we're just wonderful; you must be, too.

    In terms of timing - I'm a teacher who is luxuriating for the next month but I'm hoping that most people would be available somewhere between Wednesday 27th - Friday 29th December unless they've gone away for the season? Please post or send me DMs with your availability and I'll try to make it work.

    I missed last year but I've heard it was great at the Sail & Anchor in Fremantle. I'd be happy to do that again. I'm assuming say, a 2pm start, unless people are married to mornings? Very happy to be guided by people who have to work that week.

    Besides company, Greenpike, what can I get??
    - I'll bring some free handsome brush soakers for those of you in love with natural hair brushes.
    - I have a full, unused bottle of Avon Wild Country aftershave I'm happy to give away so you can be cool like me.
    - I have a wonderful lend for @Bucephalus that we need to keep hush hush. Shhhhh.
    - I can let you try my extremely limited edition Borked aftershave I've only just received from the very generous @todras.
    - I have an aluminium Colonial General that I'm also happy to share around so long as you promise not to drop it :) If you haven't tried one, YOU NEED TO.

    Tagged WA People (add more and sorry if I've got it wrong!)

    Good work @Greenpike - work on the "Field of Dreams" principle - "Build it and they will come" (y)

    I'll be in that mate. As a Fremantle OAP, any date/time suits me. As for "triallers", my kit is pretty much settled but I do have a spare Wilkinson Sword Blue soap stick; if you haven't tried one, you should - forget TOBS, this stuff is TOPS!
    @Cris - we can bemoan a 4-0 thumping at Tynecastle eh Jimmy?
    @TomG - it'd be good to meet up with ya again!

    Great initiative, @Greenpike !

    I am in town on those dates and would enjoy a catch-up. Sail and Anchor works for me as it was a good venue at the last meet, but open to suggestions for alternatives.
    @Bucephalus - look forward to catching up, and meeting the other guys.

    Adding fellow Sandgropers @DrBob and @RazorPlay .

    Due to a kind patron, we have 8 packs each of vintage English Wilkies and Schick Platinum Plus coming our way from the East so hopefully everyone gets a takeaway. Even more incentive to come along!

    As I’ve not had any request for a specific date, I’m leaning towards Thursday 28th December. Last call for objections? I’m specifically thinking of @Cris who might be working (the joys of small business) - let me know by 4pm today.

    Thanks for organising this. I will try to make it, if I am around. I only have a vague idea of what I might be doing tomorrow though, let alone next week!

    Is anyone coming to the meet up that is a little bit knowable about super speeds I dropped mine and think it has issues but I’m unsure of the fix it’s still usable but may need a fix to be 100%
