sounds ok to me
/ breathes out a sigh of relief for not being the only one with a car
Driods Well I never More like C3Po and r2 !
Ill call shot gun this time
I didnt know this leeds do was a costumeing do ?
1. Leigh- pick you up from home about 9.30am?
2. Jase- pick you up somewhere(?) about 10.00am? I don't mind picking you up at your place, it's up to you.
Thought I'd check the Leeds Utd website and they're playing away, so hopefully we shouldn't have too much trouble with parking
don't worry about parking Suzi there is a huge Multi-storey car park right next to the Armouries
Im just off junction 61 of the A1, so it should be fairly easy to pick me up at the Durham services there. Hope this is ok.
There is good parking at the Armouries - but if I remember rightly its a bit expensive?
Car Parking prices are as follows:
kinda steep but the Armouries is free entry and the parking can be split 3 ways for each car
What time do you lot think you will get to the Armouries?
Jase- I know that services, so I'll pick you up there, no probs.
The parking prices will be fine if we're splitting it.
WhimOTW- It takes about two hours from Ncle, so I think we'll get there about 11.30am-12.00pm
coolio - so are we gonna costume this one people or are we gonna go under cover in civvies.....?
I guess we have to bear in mind that if we costume we will need to change if we go out after to the town or whatever and we will also have to carry bags with change of clothes etc in the cars...
In hindsight, Im ok for non costuming unless anyone has other thoughts...?
I won't be costuming this, I'm a Jedi that prefers comfy jeans and trainers
well, I'll go with the majority
but I'm not against changing in a car park
yeah, I hear that anything goes in the Boro....
Im with spikey on this one jase ill go with the group !
if you were to go in costume just tunic's would be best ! and change b4 we went ?
Since I will be there on Friday and Sat night in a hotel, maybe you can use my room to change?
Well I'm always happy to costume, solong as i'm not doing it on my bill. Having a room to change in would be good if we were though, would also mean we have a place to leave the bags.
I'll charge for storage
Charge U mean like Mushrooms and pipe weed?
Dont knock Pipe Weed until you have tryed it ! Its a nice flavor
I am a dwarf not a hobbit, get it right
Where do we stand on this? What's happening? I think Tethys has lost net access for the mo, hopefully she can get some back before are in Leeds.
I was under the impression we were meeting at the Armories at 12ish, but not being familiar with the Armories, not sure whereabouts - do they have more than one entrance?
There's only one enterance to the Armouries & one large multi-storey carpark.
So I imagine hanging about the entrance till everyone has turned up.
One slight word of warning - the sign post directions of the city centre ring road can be a bit confusing

lol Even with a map we are hopeless, hence our every present TomTom, without which we'd never get there.
Will print the maps though - TomTom not perfect
Any other plans for after the armories?
Forbidden Planet, food ... etc
Tethys, if she gets net access, was going to book us into a curry place.
I have just booked myself into the Travel Lodge (Leeds Central) for the Friday and Sat nights, so I just have to get rail tickets now then that is me sorted
I was planing on comming up on the coach Saturday, but I've never been to Leeds before. Can anyone give us an idea where I'm heading?
Fraid I can't really help more than that, been years since I was in Leeds.
