Meetup group for Britons!

Hey all,I have just started a group on meetup.com, aimed at gathering together a group of reliable people interested in general outdoorsmanship and intellectual activity. I have done this because whilst I have many friends, they are rather unreliable when it comes to organising any event of actual substance (they would all rather just drink up which is a bore).

Fraternal organisations UK?

Hey guys, long time no see,Recently I've been thinking about joining a fraternal guild/members club here in the UK (specifically Edinburgh) but the choices are extremely narrow. Having done a bit of research it seems there are dozens of options in the US, but here there are only 2/3 (Freemasons (no idea how to join them, invite only?), Royal Scots Club, Royal Oversees League).Anybody have any recommendations/advice? Or could anyone share their experience of fraternal lodges within the UK?Thanks…See More
