Welcome to the Room 11 Blues Club.

The club exists to capture the coherent history of pivotal events in the lives of a small group of friends who went to West Hatch Technical High School in Chigwell, Essex between 1964 and 1971.

The idea for this site came from a chance conversation between Gareth Howell, Neil Roughton and Graham Lee at the second NAC reunion gig; held at the Blackmore Sports and Social Club in the village of Blackmore in Essex. Graham reflected that each of us has a different recollection of past events: whilst it's true that we can all remember the same basic history, each of us recalls some events in much greater detail and its often a different set of events from what others recall in detail.

This set Gareth thinking (mainly because he wasn't drinking) and he came up with the idea of creating a collective history of our pasts. The essence would be that it was collaborative in nature, with each member contributing his or her personal recollections.

Having come up with the idea, it was natural to execute using a Wiki: so here we are. Wikis are open by nature, so anybody can edit just about any page, even if they didn't create it and even do so anonymously if they so wish, though contributors are encouraged to register first so that we can see who they are.

Let's see how this develops!

If you are new to Wikis (I bet you've used Wikipedia though!) it might be worth taking a look at the Help:Contents page and having a play in the Sandbox before you make any major changes to existing pages. That said, all previous versions of pages are held forever, so if you do screw it up, you can always revert to a previous version.
