    I noticed the slight flaw in that the 26th-30th is a Monday - Friday, which may rule most people out of a meet due to work. I should be able to make it still, so considering you'll be here on Monday Tim, shall we make the London meet for Monday the 26th??

    And I'm sure we can meet up during the weekend too Tim. I'll let Matt & Koren know as I'm sure they'd like to catch up with you too.

    I will take a wild guess and say the abode of Sir Beaklington Chop, lol ;)

    Does Tim know he'll be sharing the spare room with the ferrets though? [face_devil]

    Aye Jamie, depending on what we do, we'll try and be in central London for the evening so we can get more people to attend at least some of the meet.

    It's Citizenjohn who is from NY and is actually coming to London to visit....although if you're offering to fly us all out to NY for a visit Aoki, then be my guest ;)

    I will try and get a firm plan of action established this week, but as a reminder the meet is penciled in for Monday 26th March. I need to work out the best way to get to Watford and then the park, but I'm hoping it wont be too tricky. Stay tuned.... :D

    Still try to sort out me going down there John, I'd definitely have to leave on Monday evening, which is annoying (trying to work out a place to stow my bags so we can leave it as late as possible on Monday for me to collect em - I am looking at a 7pm return train). Will keep you informed dude.

    I've done as much research as poss and Whippendell Woods isn't too far away from Watford Tube station, which is good news. However, it may be pretty tricky finding the right spots, but I have also noticed that Leavesden Studios isn't too far away either, so if we fail in our mission we could always pop round to see that on the way back ;)

    From what I can tell, Watford tube station is in zone A, so I'm guessing a travelcard covering zones 1-D will do us. I have no experience travelling in Zones other then 1-6, so I have no idea what these numbered zones are other then just confussing matters when they don't need to be. A zone 1-D travel card will cost £7.80.

    So if all goes to plan, I suggest we try and meet somewhere in Central London, preferably near to Liverpool Street Station for around 10:30am. If that sounds good we can refine the plans :D

    John, would it be okay to revise plans slightly. As Tim wont be making it down now, it might be better to move the meet to mid-week if that's okay?? Say a Wednesday or Thursday?? And because the chances are it may only be me attending, it might not be worth going all the way to Watford to get lost, lol. We can however do a mini-tour of film studios if you like, and hopefully get some people to meet-up in the evening for a bite to eat and/or drinks. let me know if that's okay and we can get something finalised later today or tomorrow.

    BTW, here's a pic of some of us so that you know what we look like, and do you know how to get to Leicester Square?? That's our usual meeting point, outside the main Odeon cinema.

    That's me on the far left, doing a little dance it appears ;)

    Excellent John. Shall we meet for around 11:00am outside the Odeon cinema Leicester Square. I'll have a few options of what we can do and shall take it from there. And later on we'll fix a meeting point and time so we can meet up with krazy Kiz (Koren) and hopefully some others that are ready and able.

    Here's a good, basic map of Leicester Square:

    And here's a good pic of the Odeon, which is where I'll be ;)

    If anyone else wants to join us, at any time, please let me know :)
    EDIT: If anyone is interested in joining us for the day, best to get an all zone travelcard too as there's a good chance we will be doing some traveling.

    Excellent John, Thursday 29th March 11:00am @ Odeon Leicester Square it is then :D

    For anyone who wants to meet up in the evening, just let me know and we can pick a good time and spot.
    btw John, I have no idea what you look like so if you could PM me a link to a piccy that would be great. Or maybe Tim can point me in the right direction??
