23/7: 3rd Unofficial London 2012 Pin Traders Pin Meet

The pin meet held today was a great success with 19 people attending. I would like to thank everyone who came along for taking part. Hopefully we will get even bigger turnouts as time goes on. I hope all the 'first-timers' found the meet a friendly place and got a chance to meet fellow collectors.

Thanks also to Jan and the staff at the Railway Tavern. As before they were excellent hosts and we appreciate them letting us have the space for nothing.

Finally thanks to the sponsors Coca Cola, BT and EDF who gave us each a pin. Both BT and Coca Cola were able to share their 1 year to go pin with us and I know from the response in the room, everyone really appreciated the sponsor support. We were lucky enough to have a senior member of the Coca Cola London 2012 team attend and hear first-hand what pin traders would like to see in the Coca Cola trading centres next year. Honav also very kindly donated some non-London 2012 pins too.

If you didn't manage to make the event today, I'm looking to set up another for late September or early October depending on venue availability. Watch this space as I'll be asking for opinions on dates soon.
