    It was a good weekend and nice to meet some new faces. Hope everyone got home safely.

    A few thank yous first:

    Thanks to those people who helped on the table over the weekend and also those who took the time to contribute to items on the table- you know who you are.

    It was great to be alongside the 99th Imperials and Rebel Legion and I hope this can continue in the future.

    Thanks to Martina for organising the meal on Sat and for baking the birthday cake [:D]

    Also thanks to the organisers for providing us with a table and giving us the chance to promote ourselves.

    If I?ve missed any other thank yous, please tell me!

    Does anyone have any comments, either in general, about the FF table or any other aspects?

    Was a great event, well done everyone working hard for the Fan Force UK North :D I think we did a good job.
    Thanks especially to Suzi, Coz and Leigh for the time spent behind the table. Thanks to Martina for the lovely cake, was delicious! :D And both Suzi and Martina for organising meals out, especially since it proved tougher than expected to get everyone on time for a 7pm meal.

    Will hopefully post more before the weekend, post-event kind stuff, because after that I lose net connection at home for what could be 2 weeks or more. Not sure.

    Welcome to the boards Ascal_Elessar [:D] You were a star over the weekend, sure Rebel Legion appreciated the time you put into supporting them :D
    An welcome to being an honourary member! ;)
    We'll get that Dublin meet arranged so you don't have to travel so far this time.
