    Yes, please do register if you have not yet done so. Any big notices will be posted both in there, and in addition, in here for those having problems. If you wish to attend the MEM show in April, please do share your thoughts with us.

    I thought that was your department Wendy ;).

    Ok people, I've posted this on the other thread and thought I'd post it here too - This event is our biggest so far and what happens in March/April could make or break us attending future events of this kind, I would like to hear from all of the FF-UK members in regard to this event, even if you aren't attending, this is what we're all about so have your say. We need input here folks, this won't be left to the usual suspects to sort out, it should be a TEAM EFFORT.

    I've been asked for details regarding this meet from some of our Northern friends, I take it this will be one of the things discussed at Star City ?

    so what's the score for this one? anyone interested in meeting at mine and then heading down to the nec first thing? or shall we all meet outside the doors when it opens? either way is cool here.

    tickets are £11 on the door (has that gone up or am i just being my usual confused self?)

    It has gone up Dave, it used to be £10 on the door. I'd love to meet up either at yours or the NEC but I think I'll be working on that Saturday morning (I'll check the diary on that)but if I am, then I'll be going staight from work to the NEC, so I should get there for around 12.30 ish.

    I'll update as and when I know what I'm doing, or not as the case maybe, or isn't . . . . . . . . . Oh you know what I mean.

    yeah, we are definately going, just not in any "official capacity". our thread on the private boards kind of got de-railed with discussion of a painting ;) and this thread is our "arrangement" thread. what you see here is what we've arranged :D


    and LD, there are 3 memorabilias a year, so you will have 2 more chances at attending this year :D

    ...are you guys doing both days or just the one day?

    Room for an ickle Northerner?

    I am tempted to come down on the National Express deal that lasts until 31st March. Its £18 return....but I cant get back on the same day...(unless I stay for 4hrs only). The car would cost me a packet - not something I have right now...:_|

    Anybody fancy putting a Northern Jedi up for the night? (no - the whippet would not be coming too...:p)

    Just a thought...[face_thinking]

    To bad Orn. :(

    I will hopefully be able to make it! :D But its my first time to one of these [face_blush] so can someone please explain what goes down there. Do we have to buy tickets before or can we just pay at the door? :confused: Any other info you think I may need to know would be appreciated. :)

    I'm such a noob. [face_blush] *hides*

    Jase, if I had the room it would be no problem but my twin engines of destruction will be in full effect and I wouldn't want to inflict that on anyone. I can do some searching for CHEAP hotels if that's any help.

    Jon, you can buy tickets on the door so no need to worry about booking in advance. I'm guessing that most of the guys and gals will be meeting at Dave's and going to the NEC from there, perhaps a PM to Lord-Wiz would solve some of your problems.

    It would be great to have you both along.

    Orn, I'm sure we'll be able to sort something out for either August or November as they normally have three of these a year.

    jon, i could come and pick you up beforehand if you want, just let me know.

    edge, i will let you know, we are kind of 50-50 ATM with babysitters etc. (we have to unload the kids to be able to have people stay over ;) )


    EDIT: jon, just be prepared to walk in to the show, turn around, and have everyone disappear on you [face_laugh] . mobile phone number exchanges can be useful :p

    Well I don't want to be any trouble, I hate people going to any trouble for me. [face_blush] I'll PM you.

    And yeah lol, I'll have to get all your mobiles before hand. Plus I always seem to get lost. [face_blush]

    I think it'd be easier for me if I met everyone at the show.. I'll be going there by train and apparently there's a stop actually at the NEC.

    Are we going on the Saturday yeah?

    Hunky Evil, I'm P.M'ing you my phone number, so if you don't happen to see us at the front door, or if you get lost during the event, give me a bell, and I'll look out for you. :)

    BTW, people. What time do you think we should aim to get there?

    Pity that Spat won't be there this time around... :p

    Oh, and I don't know if you've noticed, the entrance price has gone up a quid! - Scandalous! :p

    erm, yeah, [face_worried] about half way through this thread :p

    ;)



    mark, are you meeting at mine? that way we need to work out what time to meet here and then what time at mem. i am quite confused by your post as we have been trying to arrange things and by your post it looks like you haven't read this thread. are you coming to mine beforehand or are we all going there seperately?
