I notice people complaining that meets are not near them. I know I am lucky to be living in a capitol city (there had to be SOME kind of good to go with all the bad!) but I am sure people could organise local meets if they wanted to. It is always in Newgrounds interest to create a sense of community, so why not contact the Staff and ask for advice on this? Maybe the staff wouldn't be able to make it to a Meet in Shetland, but Edinburgh would be closer to the North of England than London. If a few people got behind a thread and showed interest, then maybe a meet could be arranged around, say a Mod in Sao Paolo, Saskachewan or Belfast.
There's a meet happening in Glasgow in a few weeks. If anyone from mainland UK wants to go to a meet, they should be able to manage it.
So yeah, totally set up a meet wherever you stay. You don't need a large group of folk or 'official' permission. Provided there's a few folk in the area, you can just gather for an evening in the pub or whatever.
But if you're in northern England or Scotland and complaining that London is too far, come to Glasgow.
Or remember that coach tickets are cheap when booked in advance.
