    I've seen Tim pimping this event around other chapters, is anyone on here interested in going??

    Sounds like it could be good fun, kinda tempted to make a long weekend of it - maybe even camping !! [face_thinking]

    omg! Now that would be so cool if you two could come, I had set myself for being the only Northern brother there lol :cool:

    I haven't booked anything yet btw. Anyone wanting to do the Joust! trip too? I have to work out transport (it'll be either train/bus from Bristol to the castle), like 30 mins I believe.

    Thread on FF-UK: South boards on this with extra info about my suggestion to go to the Joust! event nearby Bristol on Saturday - http://boards.theforce.net/south/b10753/23849161/p1/?4

    Lol, I was intending on getting a hotel room in Bristol, you lot can be attacked by the grisslies :p

    I may have to definitely go to this, one of the Dark Horse Comics writers is attending, I can't not go and meet him.

    well I've only found one campsite so far

    http://www.ukparks.com/park_details_top.asp?parkid=3285

    it's only about 10 miles away from the Fantasy Event (according to the AA Route Planner)

    Come on Tim - you know you like a good old campfire sing song !! :D

    Ooooo Spike!!! Stop tempting me lol :p My two main problems will be I am coming down by train (and really don't feel like lugging a mobile home around :p I have to get one first too), second is that I'll be there Friday night anyways, and that nice hotel is sooooooo close to the train station, unlike the camp :p

    I'll think about it, would be meh to miss out on a group thing like camping too. I loved it as a kid, not done it for a while. Veggie sausage and beans by a campfire! Oooooo ... :p

    Lolololol! I can see Chris cowering in his tent right now, gun fixed on the door :p

    I still have the problem that I am not coming in a car which can go straight to the camp, you think there is a bus service to the camp site? :p Me neither. I'll have to meet you all there in Bristol itself, what day are you all planning on coming? I will be there Friday nite. I'll give it more thought tho.

    I'd be up for camping! Sounding better by the minute methinks. Like I said Timbo, if I drive down and you require transport, let me know.


    Sooo, are we going for an FFUK:N campy thing then?

    I'd love to get involved in a camping meet.

    I know a couple of really great sites in Buxton (can't do Bristol due to family circumstances at home and money being tight) but if we could organise things for a summer meet next year I'm sure I'd be able to make it with my sproglets.



    I would have pushed for something on this line earlier in the year but due to the missus beingpreggers thats just not an option for me ATM

    I'm going to have to shy out now I'm afraid [face_frustrated]

    The GF is taking part in an arts fair in Saltaire on that weekend & she's roped me into helping her - on the understanding that I can go to the big Sutton Park meet on 6th Aug [face_dancing]

    Gutted I'm going to miss it (I've never been to a convention before) though it means I can save my money for the GMEX in Nov :D
