    I'll be coming on the train in me uniform. Though If I can meet up with you before we meet the others so I can dump me bags that'll be good.

    I just got my advance tickets this morning for the GMEX weekend - no main queue for me!!!!! [face_dancing]

    They come recorded delivery, so if the postman has left a little note you know what it will be....

    I am presuming other people have booked advance tickets or will I be a lonely Jedi while you oiks queue? :(

    We are mostly staying in the PremierTravelInn on Deansgate - you are more than welcome to join us I am sure everyone will agree!!!

    We are meeting up as a group between 11.30-12 at the steps outside the GMEX - just look out for the Jedi and that will be us!!! [face_dancing]

    PM me if you need to know more?

    Welcome to the party!

    I'll be queing for the tickets as well, but I've requested an early check in so I can get changed. Either that or we make a "corral" of cars in the car park so we can use it as a changing room!!
    Counting down....

    ...whoever gets a room first we can all move in there to change mate - I dont fancy stripping in a Manc car park in winter! [face_blush]

    So long as you are there for 10.30 at the hotel - thas when we are meeting, before the possee goes down to the GMEX.
