    In terms of badges, I will be wearing my regular one :D

    Here are the designs if anyone wants to do them as well. The lightside is the front, the darkside is the back. The front normally has your Username, then you Real name underneath, in English, the back has your username and real name again, but in the Aurebesh font.

    FRONT

    The good news is that I have a hotel booked. I've got a room at the Premier Travel Inn Deansgate Lock, so sounds like some of us will be under the same roof :p

    The bad news is that I still don't know for sure if I can make it. By the end of the week I'll know for sure, promise ;)

    Hey guys, I'm new to the forum so this is my first post, but I'm glad to see I wont be the only Star Wars fan there. I still can't get over the fact that they've finally given us a good convention in the north of England, Hullywood was okay, but it was all stalls really an v few guests (2 at the one i went to). This is the perfect way to spend my bday weekend!!!

    Hello nice northern new people :D

    Having been to Collectormania in Milton Keynes I can honestly say that Showmasters do a great job and the GMex one is gonna be most excellent :D

    Not long to go now.

    Halifax - cool (or should I say 'cold'!)

    There are a few other people here on the North board from the West Yorks areas such as Leeds and Wakefield too. They were talking about a Leeds meet up or trip to the cinema before xmas....not sure how far on they are...? User names 'Eddie' and 'Tethys'...if it helps...

    I believe we're considering going for some food and then those of use over 18 (or can pass for ;)) are going to have a couple of ales in some local pubs.

    Welcome to the FFUK:North Hatch5 :cool: :D

    Leigh, as a fallback if needed (but with the choice of all those lads above, I am sure isn't ;) ), I booked a room for myself just after Jase did, it's meant to be a single but I am sure the booking was a twin (which either means two beds, or I don't know), anyways, that is a fallback if needed. I guess we'll all find out what the rooms are like when we get there, but after what happened with the last hotel booking previous to this one (*looks at Jase and his attempt to share a bed with Chris :p *), I am doing the wait and see.

    Thats the Ibis for you - owned by the nation well known for their laid back approach to relationships...fancy them only providing double beds? What kind of a hotel is that? But I drew the line at sleeping in a double bed with Lord O, when I found out what they had allocated to me! :eek:

    hence, why I rebooked elsewhere! Tim is just stalking me...:p

    But I am a nice stalker lol! :p
    Talking of stalkers, I seem to have one on xfire (the game version of msn), a 17 year old named Kellie (no, not the chip shop girl :p ) who's into vampires. Haven't got a clue why she added me, not seen her online yet. I have bought tons of garlic though :D :p

    I can finally confirm that I will be attending Collectormania next weekend :D

    I'll be arriving into Manchester on Friday and will depart on Monday. Sadly, I will be posted at my Uncle's stall through-out the show, but I will try and make the photocall and of cause you're welcome to visit me at the Sci-Fi Simon stall.

    Hope to see you there!! :)
