    Definitely a Midlands/North meet should happen! :)
    I know some people were interested in seeing details about the upcoming North/Scotland meet in Edinburgh - here's the thread for FF-UK: North. It's on 23/24 February (looks like the main date will be Saturday 23 Feb) in Edinburgh. Anyone is welcome to come up to it, so please do :)

    As for upcoming Midlands-based conventions and fairs (as promised) ...

    It was a pleasure to meet you, and a superlative effort for you to make it :) Can't wait for the next meet!

    I must say that ice-skating was a blast, and all chapters should note that it's a brilliant ice-breaker (pun intended :p ) I can't wait to skate again! Followed by a nice look round the city centre, then off to the pub. pub. pub. pub. pub. for a nice social chat, and to top it off, a trip to the cinema (and I must admit the film wasn't as bad as I thought it would be, but still pretty awful :p )

    It was great to see so many new faces. Hopefully we shall all meet up again soon, and get some more people along. Spread the word!

    So a huge thanks to Dave for getting it all sorted. You've set yourself quite a high level here!

    Dar, there are closer Collectormanias to you ;) Eg, Milton Keynes ones. Doubt I will attend that one this year however.

    Definitely well done Dave, you did a splendid job of getting it going, and making it a great day. Here's to seeing many years of a great Chapter under your stewardship. =D= =D= =D= =D= :cool:

    No problem, I have evolved from leaflets to diaries/calendars :p
    Dave can do the leaflets from now on, though lowri1202 did a great job of passing on the new craze :p What's cool in 2008? Collecting leaflets! Maybe not! :p

    Could have been funnier if he had been pushed. Couldn't keep up with him so he got away, guess I am just about ready to be put in old RSA retirement home. So I guess that means the long walk for me (Judge Dredd style). Coast to Coast will do :p

    I'll keep sticking my head around the door to see whats happening, but right now I have too much going on to become a fully fledged member of the midlands again. Keep up the good work though Dave!
