    That is the correct time and correct location. Next have a weekend sale on though so It'll probably be busy down that end now :oops:

    See you tomorrow, have a safe trip everyone :D

    I'm not going I'm afraid, sorry.
    was too hard to get my shift changed.

    I have to work at 4:30, and I don't think I can go there and get back in time. Even if I could I'd have to leave after about 2 hours, so it's not worth it.


    I could still possibly go on Sunday since I don't work till 6.



    Hope ya'll have a good time.

    Well, it seems miraculous, but my health has improved slightly, so I'll probably be there. Might be a tad late though :p

    Was nice meeting everyone and congratz to the South for having an official meet :D
    The next one will be the prelude to CE, so maybe we should all use it as a dress-rehearsal and all go in our Star Wars cossies ;)

    What an excellent weekend - we had four Fan Forces represented on Saturday ...

    FF-UK: South - an official meet, well done =D=
    FF-UK: London
    FF-UK: Midlands
    FF-UK: North

    Plus we had two Midlanders there crewing for one of the big SW costuming groups, kudos to them =D=

    I really enjoyed spending time with everyone on Sat, had a good time, and happy to be able to chat to you all (even if I said someone's name wrong - not on purpose btw honest :p )
    Great meet, found it really enjoyable. Hope everyone else did too.

    Sunday was a blast too - I helped crew for Showmasters, and wow was it an experience and a half. I had to sit and look after Paul Brooke's (Rancor Keeper - Malakili) table, and Paul is an absolute star, great to chat with and I hope he really enjoyed his first convention. I'd love to crew again from having such a great experience, and anyone interested in it contact me via PM, and I'll let you know what you need to do. I really must point out, it is hard work btw, long days and you are expected to work hard, but it is worth it.

    FF-UK: South

    FF-UK (no Meeka in there, she was guarding bags from chavs :( )
    [image=http://i107.photobucket.com/albums/m309/timbolton/FFUKS_Oct06_MK/FFUKS_MK_Oct06_02.jpg]

    She made up for it in the other version of this pic, which I can't post :p Horns are mean't to have two fingers :D

    This was my pit area on Sunday, and the table I watched over. But I never saw an droids. Or Rancors for that matter.
    [image=http://i107.photobucket.com/albums/m309/timbolton/FFUKS_Oct06_MK/FFUKS_MK_Oct06_06.jpg]

    Paul Brooke, a nice guy and very funny man. I hope he does more cons, he's one of the stars that appreciates the fans and gives a little back. All round :cool:

    Glad everyone had a good time at Collectormania and nice to see some pics from the event and to get to put faces to names! Although I still not quite sure who is who, only recognised Lord-Tice, lol.

    As for me, well I had a fab time down in Essex :D

    It was great to meet everyone, Serena, Glen and who ever else i miss off.

    Dewbackrider88: I forgive you for not talking to me much but we still had a good day.

    Jon: I can't believe that you ate half my lunch instead of buying your own.

    I forgot to do the horns on one of the pics but there will be a next time.
