    Don't care where, don't care when, but just something so we can get 3 meets done before July lest we face Wales' fate :p

    With my timetable I can now do Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Saturdays, I can also do Thursday afternoons too.

    Ditto. And some money to afford the train would be good. :p

    If we do it before Easter it'll have to be in Portsmouth as I have no money, but if we do it after Easter then we can do it somewhere else as I'll have money.

    I can't do Wednesdays, seeing as I still have a job atm :p

    Then again, my weekends are fully booked until 14th March, so meh :(

    After that, I'm free :D (Or possibly before, depending on when my contract ends - oh the joys of freelancing...)

    If you need a meeting before July, you can always set one up for Collectormania in early June. Looks like it's going to be a much bigger event this time.

    Much bigger. But mayhaps harder to get to, being as its not in the Center. I might ask my missus to help pick up some of us from the train station, if it comes to it - if people need a lift from the station to the stadium. (She drives, I don't.)

    I can't decide whether its going to suffer for moving from the Center, or it'll be larger and even more fun. As long as I can buy a Darth Caedus and Lumiya mini this time, I don't care. :p

    It will benefit the fans going to a larger event as they can do more. But one reason I liked it being in the Centre (apart from the fact it had The Entertainer which was great to find Star Wars things if you were bored of the event) was that ordinary members of the public could be involved in it.
    They could walk past and see it, and many interacted with the cosplay people. This increased interest in the event and could encourage people who either didn't ever attend such things or were unfairly critical to be interested.

    When it's inside a stadium although entry is free ordinary passers by are not likely to know or care about the event.

    Agreed. So, we'll see how this experiment goes, and if it moves back to the Center next time, we needn't worry. But they have got Leonard Nimoy coming... so they're gearing up to lure the fans, that they are.

    Not a massive guest list so far (certainly not compared to LFCC), but should be fun nonetheless.

    Still, there are Spock and Sisko. So it's quality, not quantity that counts this time. ;) But who knows, they may add some guests still.

    I'm still not entirely sure if I'll be in the UK around that time. But if I am, I'll go on Friday.

    I'm not sure which day I'm going, actually. I'll check with the missus. :D

    I can go Friday and meet up with people, otherwise I'll simply go on Saturday. :p Either way, I'm going once, at least.

    Anyone else?

    I don't think I can go on the Friday, I have requested the Saturday off work so I can go then if I'm able to.

    Well, Saturday is a definite for me, at very least. With my fiance, her sister, and her boyfriend. So I'll be there.

    Whether I'll be there Friday is another thing.

    Did anyone actually meet up?

    We need to have a meet soon or the FF-UK:South will be declared dead. :(

    Actually, I think it officially is. It's been a year since the Wagamama meet now.

    As for meeting up, I no longer have the money to go anywhere :p
