    A great time was had by all, we met loads of people most of whom have as much enthusiasm for Star Wars as we do.

    Thanks must go out to Simon, the guys and gals from the UK-G, all the staff at the NSC who worked very hard to make the event a success, BIG UP to Phill, Mark, Mika, Little Dave, Big Dave, Ang and the Wizlets.

    For those that are interested some photo's will be up soon I'm sure and we may have some things to talk about in the near future. In short it was a really great experience, oh and if anyone who met us at that event is reading this - Welcome to the forums, it was a pleasure to meet you.

    another truly great day for the FF-UK and particularly the FF-UK:M. the table got a lot of interest and hopefully we will see an influx of new members to the whole of the FF-UK :) .

    awesome once again to spend quality time in quality company.

    sorry you couldn't make it V. i hope you have a great party. :D

    Evening, gang.

    Yes, I just want to share the sentiments of the above and say that yesterday was a huge success for us - especially since it was only the second time we had a table. Thanks to everyone for turning up, even though I only saw people pretty much flitting back and forth all morning! :p

    Firstly, thanks must go out to Simon, the UKG, and the NSC for allowing us to hold a table at the event. Things were going better than expected, and we had a lot of people coming to see us. In fact, we nearly ran out of business cards by lunchtime. With any luck, we will be seeing a few new members in the group. :)

    Secondly, major kudos to Tamika and lil Dave for being real troopers throughout the entire day. They had to put up with us coming and going all day, and did it brilliantly without complaining.

    Finally, thanks to everyone else involved for coming down.

    I just like to say i had a great day and i did manage to sort things out on my own when everyone went off for a few minutes. Well done to little Dave as he gave out good information about the lightsabers and other things that i cannot remember. My back was aching all day but i got use to it in the end.
    Martin, your crusing for a bruzing because you were picking on me all day.
    Thanks for Big Dave, Ang and there kids for turning up, i think they enjoyed the day, also well done for Mark and Phil for putting up the stall and putting up with us crazy lot.

    We had a fantastic weekend and hope the buzz will keep going until next year (when we do it all over again).

    I was suprissed not to see you guys on the Sunday... we had more visitors on that day, but the Saturday was good.

    I was also impressed with the mix of true fans and families just after a day out (and no queue this time!)

    We do have one little problem though I'm afraid...

    From NSC part I have to say that we are still looking into the issue of non-payment by visitors to the centre.

    We caught many people using the back stairs from Boosters to the Rocket Tower on the day without tickets.

    The report I have recieved from Security is that one person caught said he was a guest of FF Midlands.

    Can I just put out a general question to ask if you can shed any light on this, before we do go all heavy and ban people (not our normal way of doing business - honest)

    Many thanks

    it wasn't anybody from clan Wiz, we all had (family) tickets, and kept them on us all day. i still have them if anyone wants a scan for proof.

    Actually Malika
    i can vouch for the wiz clan and Tay-mar as i saw them in the queue and chatted to them all saturday morning.

    this is very sad and its also an issue that i need to address with the UKG too

    As far as I know, the only member of the FF-UK Midlands who attended without a ticket was me, because apart from meeting Simon first thing that morning, and coming outside during the day, I spent the entire time at the table. I was under the impression from Simon that I was on the guest list for this, however if that information is incorrect I am more than happy to pay.

    I know both Mark and Tamika bought tickets, the whole of Clan-Wiz and Tay-Mar, and little Dave posted on the thread indicating he had purchased his ticket, which was the complete attendance on behalf of the FF-UK Midlands group.

    I never met anyone from Security throughout the day, and definitely never took the stairs between Boosters and the Rocket Tower, unfortunately I got to see none of the great day that day :(

    I too am deeply upset that someone would use our name to make that claim.

    With regards to not being there on Sunday, Mark had made it clear to Simon that we would only be able to attend on the Saturday due to previous commitments on the Sunday. It is regretable that we couldn't be there, because the Saturday was an awesome experience and I'm sure the Sunday was as successful.

    Where's the thread gone about rebeljediknight_88 breaking the rules etc by some other TK user name? Persoanlly I thought the banning for life bit was abit harsh as he's only a kid.

    Malika, thanks for bringing the incident to our attention, I don't think that it wasn't one of our 'Official' members as we all had tickets, can I ask if this was on the Saturday or Sunday ? Things like this really take the shine off what was a wonderful event and on behalf of the FF-UK:M I will assure you that steps will be taken not to allow this kind of thing to happen again.

    As I've said in the first post we'd like to thank all of the staff at the N.S.C. who worked very hard to make the day a success, Thank you and the rest of the staff.

    OK, this is all getting out of hand.

    There was no accusation here, I only have a Security report and the question came about as they mentioned they were your guests.

    I have a description of the person, but I need to speak to the Security Guard in question before I say any more (they are taking time off to recover from the weekend - I know how they feel, it was all a bit busy... not that I'm complaining!)

    To be honest, I think we should drop the whole thing, like I said originally lots of people were doing it and it is an issue for us to deal with internally.

    I only asked for some clarity on the situation.

    Can we close this thread please and continue with the nice relationship we were building.

    To all the new people just joining, this must look really bad!
