To answer your question - my original goal was to see if the British Beatles Fan Club would let me set up and run a Beatle discussion board for them - I didn't know many other Beatles fans personally and I thought it would be a great gateway to meet other like-minded people based locally - but when I approached the BBFC with the idea, they said they would just stick with their own Yahoo Groups Page (don't know if Yahoo Groups is still going). In the end, I decided to still go ahead and set up my own forum, so I approached Bobber, who I'd met through another Beatle board (and in real life!) and asked if he'd like to run this with me.
As the intention all along was to try and meet up with other fans, from early on I started promoting Beatle Forum meet ups in Liverpool initially for during Beatle Week but that has since expanded beyond that to include trips to London and Wales!
So now we have great number of forum members who meet up regularly and get drunk!
Fiendish Thingy: Thanks Bobber. I'm good thanks. Quiet on here for the last few months. I see Al has gone all 'Facebook' and is attracting new members. No bad thing. Are you going to the annual Beatleweek in Liverpool this year? Not long now 10 weeks or so. See you there?

Bobber: Not sure. It's an expensive trip for me plus I'm starting a new job around that time.

Amadeus: Hey all. Not been frequenting here very much lately. Between burying people, helping sick people and feeling crap myself, Me and Mrs. A. have been weighed under. Hoping to get a bit more out of that rut so I can focus back on the fun things I used to focus
