    Sorry Nigel - a bit too short notice for me tbh.

    I will be in the Toon tomorrow night though, as I am going to see some bands at The Telegraph (pub), but not till 8pm.

    Another time though for sure!

    Newcastle meet up OOHHH it will be after York will have to see about it - plus if something was on it would make it a better event rather than just walking around town .

    put some idea's forward matey

    Newcastle would still be cool - does anyone know of any events that are going on in the next few months so we can get a group of people for a meet?

    On an individual basis, I go to Newcastle fairly regularly for shopping and to hang out - even if theres nothing on I am happy to have a wander around FP and the other sci-fi haunts...

    Let me know...

    Nige - you still around mate?

    Nige! :D :cool:
    Sure you are following me round the country lol :p
    Jase and I are going to be at LFCC, along with a whole host of people from other FFUK and FF Europe, so please make sure you come and join in. I think you already know FFUK London will have a table at that event, I'll be manning it at points for Lord Tice if he needs me. I'll PM you my moby nearer the time, I am in London from the Friday to Monday of the LFCC weekend.

    And I am also planning on going to the Bristol Fantasy event. We have a Northern SW actor there, Kenneth Colley (aka Admiral Piett) and I am trying to work out something to hand him as a honourary member of our chapter. Suggestions would be great :)
    Check here - http://boards.theforce.net/south/b10753/23849161/p1/?2
    I started a thread in FFUK South about the Bristol event, plus another event on the Saturday that I may attend called "Joust".

    As for Newcastle meet, depending upon when you have it, I may try my best to come down! I have yet to make a NE meet, I haven't met the two Spikes or Dave yet. It's time I did :) Weekend will be the only time I can come, I may need to come up Sat/Friday nite and either head home Sunday or Monday. So I'll be staying in Newkie Brown town for this meet.

    Good to see you back Nige anyways, how's tricks?

    That's the Joe Corroney poster right? Did you get to meet him? He is such a cool bloke, I first met him when I met Mark Hamill, and I chatted to Joe for quite a while. Since then he has done some DHC comics which were great.

    Right, I'll pm you my moby when I get free ;) I think on the Sat I will be meeting Jase at his station so I may not get in early tbh, and I will have to go to the FFUK: London table first to report in. But if I am still somehow there before you, I'll do my best to get you a ticket. I haven't checked the collectormania boards for a short while, not sure if Carrie will be one of the guests who do talks. As for more cons, I think she'll do more book signings if she writes more, the NYC FF met her last year I think it was and it was a lot quieter than I would have expected from what they told me. This time it'll be chaos lol tho.

    Don't worry, we'll get Newcastle sorted, keep an eye out for dates, I'll pm you if you want when these lot decide. Hopefully I will be able to come too then.

    hi all
    i agree i don't think carrie will do a talk (bad enough for a tv company to get an interveiw lol) the virtual ticket is for the signing only
    i'll send you mine in a couple of days time
    i'll be at lfcc all day (nothing better to do while waiting for the plane home) we'll hook up at some point during the day
    yes its the 'epic' poster by joe wish i did meet him (hope sm get him for lfcc)
    the sm forum is down due to virus problems (check your computer)
    bye all
