The initial venue was the Vintry between Cannon Street and Bank tube stations but we quickly realised there were too many wankers and not enough draught beers there so we moved to a basement bar next door called Harry’s which is now the official OA Meet Up bar because it’s fucking brilliant and plays loads of 80s bangers.
Laughs were had and drinks were shared and no kidneys were stolen so I can happily report that the first official OA meet up went really well.
Hopefully this first foray will give others the confidence needed to meet up for a proper messy night out which I think Harry’s and our group could really facilitate. Turns out we’re a pretty decent bunch and it’s nice being able to talk football with someone that isn’t some fucking local “yer da” down the pub.
Then there’s the time Shammy was over for a game with his sister (also a former member of OA), I happened to have a spare ticket and offered it to @Mysty. We then met a few of the aforementioned posters and some others.
You’d probably all be surprised to hear that me and I2004 actually got on fairly well
As already pointed out, OA meet ups are nothing new, have been going on since the dawn of time Add the likes of Shill, Sosh, tone, I_W, Sara to the list of those who used to regularly meet up. But would absolutely love to do it again some point in the future. 3 years have really flown by. Shame Vertical Failure hasn’t joined new OA, she was good company that day.
For some reason, I don’t think we ever sorted a group photo out between us lot, something to retify in the future. Imagine roaming OA meetups! There’s more to the UK than just London
