Unfortunately I can't get to the GTG in London.

However Re. CW Events - there's a column on page 9 of Loupe that mentions a new series of roughly monthly evening events to be held at the Maidenhead showroom but I can't see anything on the CW web-site.

Anybody seen anything about these?

They had a Showroom Event @ CW Towers on Tuesday evening this week, published via Facebook.

Couple of gents from the CWE Group, amongst others, went along and there was a special 'buy on the night' 20% discount (in stock models only, I believe).

It would be good for the non Facebook users if these nights were advertised on the forum too. They have missed out on this month but I guess not long till the next one?

Good point, Patrick.

I'll try and remember for next time although, naturally, I'm not the only Facebook user who frequents the forum.

^^^ wasn’t a criticism Guy, nor aimed at you. Just good for CW to have it advertised to all CW enthusiasts as widely as possible.

Sentiment appreciated Patrick. Thank you.

It has nevertheless given me an idea.

Never saw anything about this event on Facebook. I thought only a select number of people are invited by email?

Just gone onto CW's Facebook page and details of the event were an open post on 22nd August with a number of likes and comments;-

Maybe something in Facebook's algorithms determined that, as you are in the USA, it would not be relevant to you.

^^^^ IIRC from a previous thread there were specific invites to the open evening events. Makes sense as CW Towers is not a Tardis!

Maybe individual invites were originally sent, but due to holiday season reduced take up, hence a follow up FB message to get numbers through the door.....

Previous open doors evenings have been advertised on Facebook as well.

I took it to be the normal way of promulgation.

Thanks Neil.

That is about an event in March, not one earlier this week which, as far as I know, was only promulgated by Facebook.

Perhaps there is a small degree of confusion somewhere and we all correct in our own way.
